Recital Format and General Info...


Our studio presents two separate recitals at the end of the for our youngest dancers in the early childhood program and the second for students in the upper school program.


Our recital venue has changed!  Recitals will be presented at Chesapeake College's Todd Performing Arts Center.  With our expansion to a second location in Centreville, we will be expanding our performance to two nights!  To keep the overall length of the performance manageable, some class groups will perform one night, others will perform the second night.  See lists above


In recognizing the needs of our 3 to 5 yr. olds, our Early Childhood recital is a short, matinee performance and dancers are led onstage by an instructor or an older, advanced student.  Their "dress rehearsal" immediately precedes the performance itself which helps keep the sequence fresh in the children's memory, and minimizes extra trips for families.


Students in our Upper School program (1st grade and above - all dance forms) participate in a longer evening performance, although every effort is made to keep the program to around 2 hours.  Because this program is more complex, and students are expected to remember their choreography, enter and exit the stage, and potentially interact with other class groups, additional in-studio and on-stage rehearsals are scheduled.
