Spring Recital May 7th

Spring Recital 
May 7th
Dear Parents,

The Spring Recital is just a little over a month away! As a reminder, all students in classes 3/4 and older perform. The dancers have been busy learning and practicing their routines in class. Encourage them to show you the steps at home so they can get in some more practice time. This year’s theme will be We Are the World and the dances are inspired by songs from around the world!

Please review all of the information below as it has extremely important details about the recitals.

PERFORMANCES- Sunday May, 7 2017 at 11:00am and 2:00pm

We have two shows again this year at 11:00am and 2:00pm to accommodate our growing dance department – this way we can seat all family and friends comfortably. Both shows will take place at 251 W. 100th St., New York, NY 10025. Both recitals will be on Sunday, May 7th.  Most classes will be performing in only one show, but some classes will perform in both (see below at end of email).

Tickets will be sold and distributed at the Front Desk starting Monday 4/3. Parents must come in to buy tickets or send in money with their caregiver to buy tickets. Separate tickets will be sold for the 11am and 2pm recitals, so please specify which show your child is performing in when purchasing your ticket. For families with children performing in both shows, you will only need to buy 1 set of tickets.

All tickets will be available on a first come, first serve basis. You are responsible for bringing your tickets on the day of the recital. On the day of the recital, the Ticket Desk will not hold tickets for other party members. There are no ticket reservations or refunds. 

The Spring Recital will be professionally recorded and available for purchase. DVD order forms will be available in the lobby after the shows. 

Each class will be performing a dance choreographed to a song inspired from around the world. On the day of the performance students are separated by their class dance. It is very important that you know what dance AND performance (11am, 2pm or both) your child is in.
