THE ANNUAL DANCE RECITAL
Participation in the annual Recital is not mandatory, this is entirely your decision. We do however encourage you to let your child participate, as it is truly a valuable learning experience for them. No partiality is shown in classes. All students are treated equally whether they do or do not participate in the Recital.
For those participating in the recital, there will be a nonrefundable $80 Recital fee for the first child, $30 for the second child and $15 for the third child. This is to help cover the many expenses of the Recital such as rental of the auditorium (a professional venue) for Dress Rehearsal and Recital, insurance, technicians, stage and lighting crews, printing of various Recital paperwork and programs, etc. This fee will be due on November 1st.
The Dress Rehearsal will be tentatively held Saturday, June 12th, 2021. The Recital will tentatively be held Sunday, June 13th. Both events will be held at Kennedale Performing Arts Center.
The payment for the Recital costumes is due October 25th. Financial arrangements for costume payments can be made with the studio office. Students will be measured for their costumes November 9th through 15th. The costumes will be ordered by December 1st. You will receive your costumes in March.
