We offer our dancers many performance opportunities and
highlight their accomplishments throughout the year. Taking part in a performance helps dancers to overcome shyness, fear, anxiety
and stage fright. It gives students a chance to showcase all of their hard work, dedication, and progress from throughout the preparing for a recital teaches students how to work towards a goal! Dancers take pride in conquering new steps; and knowing that they’ll be showing their moves off to friends and family gives them the added encouragement to work hard! As children experience getting on stage, performing for an audience, and being applauded for their efforts, they gain self-confidence that will carry with them in all aspects of school and life. Performances provide dancers with the opportunity to share what they have been learning with their friends and families. Costumes become treasured keepsakes, and recital pictures become the highlights of photo albums and scrapbooks. For families, performances are a time to celebrate their dancer’s achievements and instill the love of the art of dance.
