All dancers will participate in our annual recital. Each class will showcase what they have learned by performing routines on stage for family and friends! Our recitals are Sunday, June 10, 2018, and we can’t wait to watch your dancer shine on stage!
Our recital theme for 2018 is Big City Dreams!
Paramount Theatre, 123 3rd Avenue SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52403
We hold mandatory dress rehearsals June 5 – 7 at the Paramount. There are no classes that week (the last day of regular class at the studio is Sunday, June 3).
Each class should be in the auditorium ready to dance at their listed “Arrival Time”, will be called backstage to show dancers (and any Primary/Junior Show Parents) the backstage area, check-in station, and to line dancers up. At the “Stage Time” listed, dancers will walk through formations, teachers will set lighting cues, and the dancers will get to perform their dance at least once (usually twice).
Tuesday, June 5: Senior Show Act 1 Only (Level 4+)
Wednesday, June 6: Junior Show (Levels 1-3)
Thursday, June 7: Dance & Discover Show (All Dane & Discover Classes, Mini Movers, & Hippity Hop) and Senior Show Act 2
Parents are welcome to take photos (no flash, please!) or video recordings during dress rehearsal – photography and videotaping is not permitted during the recital.
The recital fee of $60 for a single student or $75 per family is due in full on April 1, 2018.
Each class (unless noted otherwise on the schedule) will perform in one of our three recitals. The recital order of each show will be announced in April 2018. We do not charge for tickets or admission to recital. Invite all of your family and friends to watch your dancer shine on stage!

COSTUME WEEK – October 24 – 30
Our costume week is SO fun – we’ll reveal our costumes for the recital in class and in messages home! During this week, dancers may also wear their Halloween costumes or an old dance costume to class.
PICTURE WEEK – May 20 – 24 – Adjusted Schedules
We are excited to hold Picture Week and a Studio Dress Rehearsal at The Pointe! Our photographers will come to the studio. Picture Week and Studio Dress Rehearsals are required even if you don’t plan on purchasing photos. Our class schedule will be adjusted this week, and exact times will be emailed home in February.
For pictures, dancers must have their hair in a recital-ready bun (Dance & Discover classes and Company classes are the only exceptions). Recital buns are at the crown of the head – ask your teacher if you would like more guidance on hair. 🙂 Most dancers will wear some makeup for pictures (excluding Dance & Discover classes) – but they do not need full stage makeup. Please keep neutral colors for picture makeup.
