The recreational level are students who usually take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours a week of class instruction. All styles of dance are offered in this program. Classes are typically stated in our schedules with the letter ‘R’ behind it.

Recital & Pictures

There is a charge of $5/Family for dress rehearsal which will be billed April 1st. For information about costume costs please refer to our Registration & Payment policies.

Group and single pictures will be taken in their costumes end of the year during picture week.

The teacher’s choice for this opportunity would be made prior to Nov. 1st and is based on class attendance and ability. Please note that there will be additional costs for costume, festival fees and festival rehearsal fee if your child is performing.
