Our Ballard and Shoreline dance classes perform twice per year. We do a showcase performance in January, which is a more casual performance and admission is free. Then, in June, we have our formal grand end of the year recital with full costumes, professional lighting, and sometimes live musical accompaniment! Our year end recitals are held in professional performance spaces with world incredible lighting and sound engineers. Year end recital locations have included Benaroya Hall, Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, Shorewood Performance Center and the Seattle Childrens Theater in Seattle Center. To attend our year end recital you must purchase a ticket. Keep in mind that our shows tend to sell out!
Our recitals are the perfect venue for your child to show family and friends the results of months of learning and practice. As a performing art, the dance recital is an important part of the dance experience as a whole.
Working as a team and working towards a collective goal are great lessons learned during the recital experience. Our recitals are organized and designed to eliminate “stage fright” and help performers build self esteem. The excitement of the costumes, make-up, big stage and fun games backstage make for an experience your child will remember for a lifetime.
Our dance recitals are an entertaining event for parents, grandparents, neighbors and the other dancers waiting to perform backstage.
