Spring Recital! Dates: May 17th-May 24th (click here for schedule) Location: Studio J Performing Arts Center

Hey J Fam!

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

May 16 – 24 – Recital Week – NO CLASSES!

Recital Parking - Parking is somewhat limited, so we do ask that you carpool with those in your party if possible. We do respectfully request 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 businesses. You may park out front, on the east side, and along the curb behind the building.

Recital Hair/Makeup - Hair should be pulled back out of the 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 the 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, 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 for 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: Show Orders

  • Dancers in more than one class should layer their tights for easy costume changes.

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

  • Doors will open 15 mins prior to showtime. EVERYONE MUST HAVE THE CORRECT WRISTBAND ON TO ENTER. Lap children do not need a wristband. Each dancer will be receiving a gift bag on the way in and parents should hang on to it until after the show. Dancers will be directed to dressing rooms; guests will go to the auditorium.

  • Each show is expected to last only 30-45 mins. Following the show, please send one parent to pick up your child and belongings from the dressing room. Students aged 3-11 (Beginning Combo thru Intermediate classes) will not be permitted to leave the 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!!!
