Friday Reminder 2/11/22

Hi, Friends!

Happy Valentine's weekend - we love our Studio J families and hope you have lots of fun celebrating with the ones you love! Do you know what else we love? RECITAL SEASON!!! We are so excited to share that this year's theme is "Rise" and the recital verse will be Isaiah 60:1 "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord shines over you." We are also excited to share the recital schedule so you can begin planning for this wonderful event! Now would be a great time to be sure you are using your class's Band App, and that you know exactly what your class is called so you can look up the correct information on the schedule. If you are uncertain, you can always log in to your parent portal on the website to look it up. Staying informed will help you and your child have the best performance experience possible, and we are here to let us know if you have any questions!

Here's what else you need to know this week...

Spring Recital!

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Spring Recital will be held in our very own professional performance venue 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 45 minutes or less. 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 link for specific recital dates/times for each class.

Each performer will receive a costume with tights, if needed, for each class, 4 tickets (per show) 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.

***RECITAL TICKET WAITLIST – You may request additional recital tickets by following THIS LINK TO THE WAITLIST

Please let us know ASAP if you will not be needing your 4 tickets so they can be offered to others who need them.

In addition, each student will be given a free recital shirt, a free digital download of their performance, and a small token of appreciation!


Location: Studio J Performing Arts Center – 2241 NW 178th St.

Spring Recital Costumes – We have begun passing out costumes as they come in! In the weeks to come, we will be doing final fittings and providing any necessary alterations. Accounts must be current in order to receive your costume, so please be sure to keep your card on file updated. If your dancer doesn’t come home with a costume, no worries. It either isn’t here yet or is getting altered!
