On With the Show!

The word RECITAL doesn’t really do it justice– it’s really more of a Dance Extravaganza!

This exciting experience gives students an opportunity to display their accomplishments and a purpose to perfect their work.

Things you’ll love as a parent:

  • Instead of one great big 4+ hour recital, we actually have 4 smaller fun-size recitals to keep each one short and sweet
  • Recital Costumes are provided at no additional cost

If you removed all the arts in the lives of our children…there is no way that adding more mathematics, increasing more reading programs, requiring more science, mandating more tests, or scheduling more computer courses could replace what they would have lost.
