Dance recitals are known for creating wonderful memories—both for the dancer and their family and friends. The costumes become keepsakes, the photos become a part of treasured scrapbooks, and the DVDs become your household’s most-watched entertainment – at least they are at my house!
I was just 3 years old when I performed in my first recital, but I still have the pictures and costume to remind me of the monumental moment. One of the things I like best about being the director of Classic Image Dance, is to watch the delight in our students of all ages after they have danced their hearts out and rejoice to the applause coming from the audience after their recital performance. I believe performing on stage is an incredible opportunity for dancers to share all they have been learning in class, and to showcase their achievements. No matter the age or level of the dancer, or whether they are a first year student or a senior dancer performing in their last show, it is a major accomplishment for anyone to perform in front of hundreds of people! All the hard work is worthwhile when a dancer experiences the hugs and smiles and congratulations that the end of year recital brings from family and friends.
There is still time to ensure your dancer gets the opportunity to experience the joy of dance on stage and to perform for you. Stop by the front desk when we return from winter break and make sure they don’t miss out on the fun.
