Our annual recital is an exciting event for students, staff and parents.  The children have worked very hard all year and are excited to showcase what they have learned.  We as teachers have seen tremendous growth in all of our students since the first day of classes back in September!  For parents new to SVDC, our studio’s dedication and commitment to excellence over the past 29 years has made our recital an outstanding event, from our professional lighting and sound to our dedicated back-stage crew, we take great pride in this annual event.

Following, you will find all of the information you need for this exciting time of year.  If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to a staff member.  



Ticket sales start on SATURDAY MAY 25th.  They will be ONLINE and tickets will be reserved on a first come, best seat available basis.   Online orders will start at 10am.  All accounts must be paid for the year (including June tuition), in order to purchase tickets.  You will receive an email with the link to purchase tickets on the morning of Saturday, May 25th.  Each family is allowed UNLIMITED TICKETS. 

Since we are performing back at a high school, we were able to drop the ticket price this year.  Ticket price...$17.50 in advance, $19.50 at the door.   All seats are RESERVED SEATING. If dancers will be watching the show, they will need a ticket.  If you have a child under 3, they will not need a ticket if sitting on a lap.  If they occupy a seat, they will need a ticket. There is a ticketing fee of $1.90 per ticket that the ticketing company charges.

ALL MAY & JUNE tuition (including past due balances) must be paid by May 24th.  You will not receive a ticket code to purchase tickets until your account is paid in full (unless you are on auto-pay.  Auto-pay for June will go through June 1st and you can still purchase your tickets in May))



Every year we print a special recital t-shirt commemorating this exciting event!  This year’s t-shirts will be available to order online and will also be available at the recital, but in limited quantity, so please make sure to place your orders in advance! You can order here: RECITAL T-SHIRT LINK 



Our annual dance recital will be professionally videotaped.  This year we are going to have ALL shows available on 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 Shop at the top of the page.  



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 

We schedule a dress rehearsal so our students can become familiar with the stage and to ensure proper lighting, sound and direction.  Please make sure you are on-site and in full costume/makeup/hair by your designated time. 

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


Our shows run approximately 2hrs 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.  This is a professional show.

  • 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.  Please abide by proper theater ettiquitte, this is to help protect our dancers on stage not being distracted by hall lights.

  • 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 childrens 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 sign up here.


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.
