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!  You WILL be getting out of your car, but only briefly. Each recital class will have a 5-minute time slot to arrive, perform their dance and exit our event.

We will continue to practice strict social distancing at our performance.  As much as we would love to see your entire family, we must abide by the guidelines set forth by our state.

  • Each dancer will only be permitted to bring 4 guests and each family will have their own designated viewing area so that no families are within 6 ft of each other at any time.
  • As you arrive in your car, we will usher you to your socially distant designated area.
  • Our dancers will be performing on a dance floor and practicing social distancing as well.
  • Our NDA staff will be wearing masks and guests at our event will be required to wear masks in order to attend.  However, we will leave the decision to wear masks or not for your dancer up to you. If you prefer, your dancer may take their mask off while performing on the stage!
  • Our NDA building will not be open for this event.  Dressing rooms will not be available.

Our dance festival format is similar to last year.  We discovered that we CAN have a glorious day performing for our families in this manner without access to a theater.  We are excited to allow a few more guests in attendance this season and also add some exciting extra attractions to our day too!

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!

Individual Photography
Individual, Siblings and Friends Portrait Photography will be provided by our friends at Creative Moments Photography. There are two opportunities for professional photography:
  • Individual Photography will be offered at our Spring Recital on Saturday, May 29 (1 costume and only Grey Background available) from 8 am-9 pm!
