All enrolled students generally have two recital performance opportunities each year; Holiday Showcase and Spring Recital. All students are encouraged to participate. Students are expected to be at all of their classes if they wish to participate in these performances. Students are required to attend mandatory dress rehearsals. If a student misses more than four classes or is not present at dress rehearsal, the student may not be allowed to participate in the performance.
In addition to the two recital performances, our two speciality companies each perform a showcase of their dances. These performances are open to the public and are a great way to learn more about our performance companies. To learn more about our specialty performance groups, click the links below:
