RECITAL Our annual recital will be Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 6  p.m. at the Folly Theater in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.

Please note that this is not your typical recital. It is a real show at a real theater with professional lighting and music; attendees are urged to stay for the entire performance and not leave after watching their own dancer. Giving the young children an opportunity to watch the older students is an integral part of their dance education.

We sell reserved seating at The Folly Theater so that you can plan your favorite spot and get enough tickets to keep your family and friends all together. Tickets are available at the door at the theater, and they are on sale at the studio about two weeks prior to the recital.

RECITAL DRESS REHEARSAL The recital dress rehearsal is Saturday, June 2, 2018 at the Folly Theater in downtown Kansas City, Missouri beginning at 8:30 am and lasting until approximately noon.

FEES BEFORE RECITAL Costume fees and tuition must be paid before participation in the recital. PLEASE check your records and/or check book register. Thanks!

RECITAL TICKETS  Tickets are reserved and are $1 less when purchased at the studio.
