Recital Day Info

It’s Showtime! Get your dancer ready in their costume, tights & make-up and head over to the studio! Our Festival style recital means we will be performing OUTSIDE!


Families may bring as many guests as they like to our event this year!  However, should inclement weather happen, only 4 guests per family will be permitted inside our building.  We will still need to monitor our attendance numbers while operating inside.


Each recital class will have a 5-minute time slot to perform their dance.


Dancers should arrive 5-10 minutes early to queue up, as we strive to have our performance run exactly on time.  We ask that you park in the Lifepoint Church parking lot on the west side of our building and walk to the front parking area where we will have the stage and family viewing tents.


After the performance, you are free to enjoy the activities of the event, including heading inside our building to have a professional photo taken of your dancer. In order to maintain an optimal flow of traffic, our front doors will be closed.  Please enter the building for dance photos via the doors to E&F hallway at the west/front of our building, clearly marked with balloons.


Since the beginning of our dance season, we have followed the Health Orders from the state and the mandates of our venues in order to create the safest environment possible for our dancers and their families.  We will continue the practice of following the Health Orders by changing our protocols for our outdoor dance recital based on the amended orders.


The new protocols are as follows:

  • We ask families to continue to maintain 6’ distance from non-family members.
  • We no longer ask fully vaccinated guests to wear face coverings while outside or inside on NDA property. Those who are not vaccinated will need to continue to wear face coverings when inside our facility. This will also apply to NDA staff.
  • We will continue our increased safety and cleaning measures throughout our building.
  • We ask families with anyone showing symptoms or who are quarantined in the household to stay home.
  • We will leave the decision of whether or not to have your dancer wear a mask up to you.
  • Of course, anyone who is more comfortable wearing a face covering should do so.

We will continue to evaluate our protocols each week as new information becomes available to us. As we come back to more normal protocols, we realize the changes may be confusing.  Our outdoor recital creates the opportunity for a very comfortable arena for our families, as the CDC has made it clear that the odds of contracting the virus in an outdoor setting are very small.  Should we need to come inside due to inclement weather, we will follow the new protocols outlined above, as well as monitoring the capacity limits of our building and limiting guests to only 4 per family.


We look forward to returning to a professional theater setting for our 2021-22 season!


Thank you for working with us on these changes.  We look forward to a wonderful dance event on May 29!

Rain Dates

There are no rain dates for this show. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will temporarily move inside. We will be all set up to accommodate our dancers and families either way!

NEW! Class Pictures

We are so excited that we have added class pictures the week of May 24th-28th!

Dancers should arrive to class at their normal start time, completely dressed and ready for pictures. The remainder of class time will be used to share and practice their recital dances in Studio A just as we normally would. Dancers will return to their normal classroom 5 minutes before their class ends where parents will pick them up.

Please review our Class Picture Week schedule as some classes will meet in a different studio. Friday morning and Saturday classes will have a scheduled time during the week for their class picture.
