The year ends with a recital featuring the accomplishments of each class. This
allows each student to experience performing; a very necessary part of their
dance training. The recital is usually the first Saturday in June at the Clara
Drinkwater-Newman Auditorium in Charleston. For the past few years, we
have been having 4 separate recitals that are all different. The recitals consist of
about 22 dances each. This year will be having four recitals. The recital times
are: 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, and 6:00. This is to accommodate the growth of the
studio. We have tried our best to fit siblings in the same recital. This will allow
everyone to fit comfortably in the auditorium and everyone can invite their
family and friends. All recitals will be different as they have been in the
A recital fee to defray the cost of the auditorium, programs, music,
decorations, etc., will be announced later on in the year. Students will be
given information regarding dance workshops throughout the year. Other
opportunities for performances may also be offered.
Dress Rehearsal: Dress rehearsal will be considered and charged as
one lesson. A parent, grandparent, or a responsible adult will be
required to attend with their student. All dance students will be
expected to attend the dress rehearsal in costume and will perform on
stage; this helps each child be prepared for the lights and new
atmosphere of being on stage. Dress rehearsal will be at the auditorium!
Recital will be held on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at the Clara
Drinkwater-Newman auditorium in Charleston, MO. The Recitals
will be at 12:00, 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 p.m.!
