Dance Shows



Dress rehearsal week has been amazing and now our dancers are REALLY excited to perform for you at recital!  Here are some last details you'll need to know...


See website for details:

Recital Parking - There should be ample parking for all recital attendees.  We do respectfully ask that you not arrive too early, or stay after so that each show's participants have room to park.  Please DO NOT park at any of the surrounding may park out front, on the east side, and along the curb behind the building.

Recital Hair/Make Up - Hair should be pulled back out of dancer's face (ex. ponytail, bun, half pulled back, etc.) and any accessories (except ponytail holders) should be placed on the child's right side.  Make up is parent's choice, although we do recommend a little cheek/lip color as the stage lighting can make performers appear washed out.

Recital Live Stream - We are so excited to be providing a live stream option for every show right on our website - no passwords required!  Just go to and click watch.  You will also be sent a free digital download, so video/flash photography is not permitted.  Let us do the work so you can be present and enjoy the show!

Recital Tips:

Be sure your child's name is on all of their belongings!  Place your child's dance shoes in a plastic zip bag with their name on it and transport extra costumes in the labeled garment bag we provided- no need to send in dance bags or other personal items.

Dancers should arrive fully dressed (except shoes) and ready to go.  Here is the link to the actual show order so you know which costume to wear first if your child is in multiple/combo classes:

Be sure your child has used the restroom before dropping them off in their dressing room.

Doors will open 15-20 mins prior to showtime.  EVERYONE (ALL AGES, INCLUDING INFANTS) MUST HAVE THE CORRECT WRISTBAND TO ENTER.  Each dancer will be receiving a gift bag on the way in which the parents should hang on to until after the show.  Dancers will be directed to dressing rooms, guests will go to auditorium.

Each show is expected to last only 30-45 mins.  Following the show, please send one parent to pick up child and belongings from dressing room.  Students ages 3-11 (Beginning Combo thru Intermediate classes) will not be permitted to leave dressing room alone.  Older students may come out to meet you after the show.

It is perfectly appropriate and encouraged to cheer on the dancers before, during, and after their performances!!!  

Flowers are a traditional recital gift and you are welcome to bring your own for your dancer.  We will NOT be selling flowers on site this year.

Spring Recital

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Spring Recital will be held in our very own professional performance venue at here at Studio J PAC!  Our large stage, clean dressing areas, and state-of-the-art sound system will be sure to provide your dancer with an amazing, safe, and exciting recital experience, and our audience will enjoy spacious seating, photos ops, and the comforts of our beautiful lobby.  


Each show’s expected run time will be under 45 minutes.  If your child is in a combo class (ex. tap/jazz/ballet) they will be performing a separate dance for each style within their class’s scheduled recital.  If your child takes more than one class, or if you have more than one student, they may be participating in more than one show. Please check the attached schedule for specific recital dates/times for each class.

Each performer will receive a costume with tights for each class, 4 tickets (per each performance they are performing in*)for the live performance, and their end of year award – all included in your monthly performance fee.  We will also be providing a free live-stream option directly on our website for anyone not able to attend, as well as out of town family and friends.

*Each student will receive 4 tickets for EACH SHOW they are performing in (not per class) for the live performances of the Spring Recitals.  


In addition, each student will be given a free recital shirt, a free digital download of their performance, and a small token of appreciation – our gifts to you for supporting Studio J PAC through this difficult season!
