Our year-end recital offers dancers a professionally directed performance in a professional venue, allowing them to shine and share their talents in front of family and friends. This truly demonstrates the results of a year’s hard work, progress and dedication.
Our year end recital showcase takes place at the incomparable Bella Concert Hall, in the Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts on the Mount Royal University Campus.
Preparation and rehearsal for recital allows students to build self-esteem and self-confidence. By working on a group performance dancers learn the positive aspects of working together as a team to create the ultimate end result!
We ask parents and guardians to help us by encouraging your child to rehearse their choreography and practice at home on a regular basis. We allow guardians to come in to the classroom to video tape the choreography the last five minutes of class.
Any student participating in full year programs (with the exception of Ballet grades 3 & up) will have the opportunity to perform in our year-end recital. No costume refunds will be issued after October 1st.
All Winter Session Junior, Youth & Teen Hip Hop classes will participate in our recital.
There may be additional charges for accessories and/or props as these are not included in the costume fee.
Classes may be combined for recital performances, which may require additional rehearsals (at no additional cost).
Any dancers participating in the recital are required to have specific tights specified on the studio attire sheet. It will be mandatory to have new pink seamless tights for any Ballet and Beige tights for all other classes. Dancers should have appropriate attire for each discipline at the beginning of the season.
As we develop and build our year end showcase, some programs may have the opportunity to share or combine with additional classes in order to create a larger production. Teachers and class times are subject to change at any time in the season.
