Our annual dance recital will be professionally videotaped.  This year we are going to have them available on USB.  Both shows will be on the USB.  The cost of the USB is $35.  For the safety of our students and integrity of our choreography, videotaping is not allowed during the recital performance.  You can order in your parent portal under the online store.  



The following applies to Pictures, Dress Rehearsal and Recital.  All children need to wear makeup as performance and camera lighting can make the skin look very pale.  For the younger girls, blue eyeshadow, blush and red lipstick.  Make sure to gel and hair spray hair for a sleek and professional look.  Buns and hair pieces should be secured with bobby pins. Older girls – No black or colored bras straps, nude only! 

NO Jewelry of any kind (unless otherwise instructed), NO nail polish, NO underwear under tights.

This is for the uniformity and professionalism of our dance recital

We will not be rehearsing competition solo’s during dress rehearsal

No Video taping is allowed during dress rehearsal and we ask that only one parent accompany each child.


Our shows run approximately 2.5hrs long with intermission.  We ask that all audience members exit the auditorium when the show is ovr.

**** Please note – The recital line up is final.  There will be no changes to accommodate personal schedules, please do not ask.  It's hard to accommodate multiple dances for costume changes.  


  • Please arrive at the Auditorium 30 minutes before performance time.  Doors open to the public 30 minutes before performance time. 

  • COSTUMES ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE AUDITORIUM or anywhere outside of the “backstage area”.  Please cover up when in public, costumes are for stage only.

  • Doors to the auditorium will only be opened BETWEEN NUMBERS.  Please be courteous to our performers and proceed to the exit during the applause and refrain from any unnecessary exit/entry.  Ushers will be available at all doors to assist.  A majority of ushers are through the Zoellner Arts Center and they are very strict with this policy.  This is proper theater ettiquitte.

  • ABSOLUTELY NO VIDEOTAPING IS PERMITTED DURING RECITAL.  You will be asked to leave the auditorium. 

  • Only 1 parent/guardian will be allowed in the backstage area when picking up/dropping off your child.  Please be advised that dressing rooms are GIRLS only, if your child needs assistance please ask another dance Mom, or talk to our desk staff prior to the recital.  Please make sure the dressing rooms are tidy and picked up after when the recital is finished.  If your child is under 10, please do not leave them unattended in the dressing room. Everyone  must be picked up after their dance number.

  •  NO pictures or selfies in dressing rooms, you will be asked to leave.

  •  If you have any questions/concerns during Dress Rehearsal or the Recital, please see one of our backstage staff (not Miss Holly). 


*  Please make sure to drop your child off at least 9 numbers before their performance.  You can pick up your child after

    they dance.  We do not have babysitting services backstage as our parent volunteers also want to see the show

   after their child dances.  Older children are not allowed to hang out in the dressing rooms if they are finished dancing.

*  Please make sure to clean up after your dancer in the dressing room. 


We are looking for Classroom Moms for each performance for ALL Twinkle Stars and Combination Stars classes.  Responsibilities include staying with the class at all times, line ups, walking them backstage, and walking them back to the dressing room after their performance.  Classroom Moms must stay with the entire class until all children have been picked up.  With this, comes the added perk of watching your child from the wings of the stage – the best seat in the house!  Please see the desk to sign up


We are looking for ushers for all performances.  You may volunteer for as little or as many performances as you like.  Ushers will be handing out programs and monitoring the entry/exit at either our main or side doors as well as helping with ticketing and intermission.

If you are interested in being an usher please see the desk to sign up.


Thank you and we look forward to seeing our fabulous dancers on stage!!!

Theatre Etiquette

As art educators, we feel that it is our responsibility to teach young people the appropriate audience etiquette.  This also makes a more enjoyable performance for all audience members.  These guidelines make sure our dancers give their best possible performance without distractions.

* Please refrain from talking during dance performances

* Enter and exit only between numbers

* All phones should be turned off or on silent

* All restless or crying infants should be removed from the performance area.

* For the safety of our dancers and integrity of our choreography, no photos or videos are

   allowed to be taken.

* Please be kind to our volunteers they are also parents of dancers and just want the best

   performance for their children and are helping to make that possible.
