Recitals

Of course, everyone admires the recital's glitz and magnificence. As dancers and friends take the stage, parents and their guests are guaranteed to be filled with joy. Recitals promise to be a spectacular experiences from beginning to end and there are several advantages to dancers performing in a recital. In addition to all the planning, preparation, and beautiful costumes and makeup, these advantages frequently extend to other components of their lives. Our studio calendar year is 10 months and runs from August through June and we eagerly anticipate the moment when all of our dancers are performing on stage during our annual recitals at Christmas and Summer. 

Each week when dance students arrive for class, they tend to focus on how much fun they are having. The younger dancers, in particular, often don't comprehend that they are towards something magical. Through repetition and dedication, dancers mature and learn that having a goal to work towards motivates them. The "step by step" process carries over to academics, future goals, and career plans. 

In order for recitals to be successful, dancers must develop teamwork skills and it is common for dancers to be "caught" at the studio assisting another student with a step that they might be struggling to learn. We all gain from learning how to collaborate with others to achieve a common goal in life and dancers gain from learning this foundation of teamwork. Working as a team is common practice in both personal and professional ways later in life.

Every now and then, we can all use a little confidence boost. and a dance recital is a wonderful opportunity for dancers to display all of their devotion, hard work, and development. Dance recitals are an early confidence-building opportunity that can set a positive example that will follow throughout their entire lives. The delight in our dancers as they observe audience members and hear applause does really boost self-assurance.
