We are so excited for our 26th annual dance recital!
The 2018 dance recital will be held on June 7th at Higley Center for Performing Arts in Gilbert. Performance is a special part of each child’s dance education and we highly encourage all dancers to participate in the wonderful end of year event.
The theme for this year’s recital is Pure Imagination. All classes participate with the exception of Turns & Leaps, Pre-Pointe/Pointe I, Performance, Stretch & Flexibility, PBT, Ballet Technique I and II, Jazz Technique and Tumbling. The ballet students will come together and present a magical ballet under the lights of the big stage. This year’s Ballet will be Pinocchio. Ballet students will be required to attend approximately 4 additional rehearsals in the spring. Further information regarding these rehearsals will be sent home after the first of the year. All other classes will perform a dance in their particular class style. In addition, all dancers will participate in an opening number and grand finale. These dances will be taught during their regular class time.
Auditions for lead roles in the ballet and for dancers interested in performing a solo, duo or trio in the recital will be held on Saturday, December 9th starting at 3:30 p.m. This is a date change from the Parent/Student handbook to accommodate our performance in the Queen Creek Parade.
