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 $150 showcase fee for the first child, $140 for the second child, and $130 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 February 1st.

A per family Media Fee in the amount of $30 will be billed on March 20th. This fee covers your family’s FULL digital download of the Showcase! These are emailed to each family following the Showcase. In addition, this fee also helps cover any additional expense that goes into the videography crew’s fees & needs throughout Showcase weekend.

The Dress Rehearsal will be held Friday, June 7, 2024. The Showcase will be held on Saturday, June 8.
