A note about the allocations of classes to recitals

Sometimes families wonder why their dancers (who either take multiple classes or have siblings who take classes) are not all in the same show.  We work tirelessly to create these shows and to meet your needs.  We do everything we can to make the shows equal among dance genres, ages, length, etc.  With so many factors to consider and so many combinations of dancers who take multiple classes and have siblings who take multiple classes, it’s simply impossible to satisfy this request.  That said, we are proud of all our dancers and know that each show will be entertaining and fun for our audiences!

Recital Policy

All dancers* are strongly encouraged to participate in our dance recital. A $60 costume fee per dancer (per class) and a $50 participation fee (per dancer) will be charged in the spring, once recital plans are finalized. If for any reason a dancer will not be able to participate in the recitals, please let us know before their 3rd scheduled class in Winter/Spring Semester, and you will not be charged a costume and participation fee.

Recitals are subject to change at DDF's discretion without advance notice due to COVID-19.

* Note that for our TutuTots dancers, Recital is optional.  We will reach out in the spring to see if your dancer (and their mom/dad/caregiver) will participate.
