Recital Day

Your one stop shop for all things you will need to know on recital day at

**Please note: During the finale at each recital, we will be using a confetti canon to signal the end of our show. All dancers will participate in the finale and we practice this in class! We inform dancers of the loud noise / confetti, but we understand it can be alarming for some dancers. Please reach out to if your dancer will require sound cancelling headphones or to sit with a teacher at the recital.

Recital Video

All Recreational dancers will be billed a $25 all-access media fee per family (April 1) and this will include the digital download of the recital video! A link to the videos will be shared with families this summer once the footage is completed.

We are excited to welcome Mr. Video (30+ years of professional media experience) back to film the Platinum stage! We are grateful for such a generous offer at only $25/family where most companies no longer offer individual sales due to the ease of sharing videos. Thank you Mr. Video!

Performance Team & Competition families will not be billed.

Recital FAQs

Do I need to buy a ticket for my dancer?

>>> No! Dancers do not need a ticket to participate in the recital.

Do I need to be backstage with my dancer?

>>> One parent per dancer will drop off their dancer in the dressing room before the show. Following the finale, one parent per dancer will pick up their dancer in the dressing room. We will have plenty of Platinum staff and Parent Volunteers in dressing rooms and backstage.

What do I do if my dancer is in multiple dances in the same recital?

>>> Your dancer will meet in the dressing room of the first dance with all of their belongings. We have staff and parent volunteers who will help your dancer change their costume and shoes for the next performance. During picture week, your dancer will be able to change their costume in our studio dressing rooms with your help.
