We are getting close to another exciting day for your dancer! Recital for The Dance Spot will be “The Greatest Show,” and we are already working to make this experience a fun and memorable one for your dancer! Please read through this letter to get important information leading up to recital, and email info@thedancespotx.com if you have any other questions.

Preparation:

Attendance this semester is extremely important for recital participants. Each of our lovely dancers is a vital instrument to the piece their class is preparing to perform. All dancers must be present weekly in order for them to successfully rehearse choreography, timing, formations and staging. This is a wonderful opportunity for dancers to experience and learn from working as a team and how gratifying that can be when it all comes to life on stage!

4 tickets are provided as part of your recital fee (6 if you have more than 1 dancer performing in recital). Extra tickets are $10 each and available for purchase here (tickets will be $12 at the door). Tickets will be available to pick up at the front desk the week prior to the show. Any unclaimed tickets will be available at will call in the lobby the day of the show.
