A non-refundable $40.00 recital fee per family is due by December 2, 2023. Payment of this fee constitutes your family’s commitment to participate in the dance recital. Tickets will be available for purchase prior to the recital (we are not responsible for lost or stolen tickets). Dancers do not need a ticket however all other guests do (including parents and siblings). Your account must have a $0 balance to receive or purchase tickets. Students must attend all scheduled rehearsals to participate in the recital, however participation in the recital is optional. Excluding in the case of injury, families must inform the studio by December 2, 2023 if their dancer will not be participating in the recital.
Our annual recital and mandatory stage rehearsal are traditionally held the week prior to Memorial Day, subject to the availability of Niagara Falls High School. We hope to announce the dates for pictures, rehearsal, and the recital before our December 2, 2023 recital fee deadline. Our stage rehearsal will not run in the order of the recital and dancers will be dropped off at designated times for approximately 10 minutes of stage rehearsal time per dance. Dancers will not be in costume for this rehearsal. There will be no audience during the stage rehearsal and parents are not allowed inside NFHS, the exception being 1 adult per dancer ages 4 and under. The recital will be a professional experience for both the dancers and parents. Parents will not be allowed backstage or in dancer changing areas. We will have a fully staffed backstage and dancer-ready room (cafeteria) to ensure all dancers are dressed and ready to perform. Our staff will also provide activities for the dancers while they are waiting for their turns to perform. We will send out full rehearsal and recital procedures and details in March 2024.
2024 Mandatory Rehearsal - Monday, May 20, 2024
2024 Dance Recital - Friday, May 24, 2024
Every year our dancers are photographed in the studio by a professional photographer in their full recital look (costume, hair and makeup). Each class will be scheduled a time to be photographed as a group and then each dancer has the option to be photographed individually. Picture order envelopes are handed out in April and are turned in at the time the picture is being taken with full payment. You do not have to order a picture package however we encourage each dancer to be a part of their class’s group shot. Solo, duets and trios will also have the opportunity to have their pictures taken and siblings can get pictures taken together.
