Recital General Information

Recitals (and Rehearsals) 2019! 

The 2019 DDF Recitals and Rehearsals will run from Saturday June 1st through Sunday June 9th at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center.  Each class is assigned to a specific show and rehearsal time.  Exact days and times will be available early in the Spring of 2019.  You will be able to access your dancer's specific Recital/Rehearsal schedule online right here.  

Recital FAQs Most questions about Recitals can be found on our FAQs page.  But feel free to call or email and we'll answer everything you need to know.

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 Philosophy

We believe that, as dance is a performing art, a performance experience is an integral part of our students' dance education.  Downtown Dance Factory holds in-class Demonstrations in January, at the end of the Fall Semester, with our big studio-wide* recitals in early June, at the end of the Winter/Spring Semester.

We pride ourselves on our professionally run, theater-based recitals, which are fun and rewarding for students and audience members alike. You'll enjoy everything from our 3-year old aspiring ballerinas and our cool breakdancing boys to our loud and lovely tappers and our teenage hip hop marvels ... and just wait for the finale!

Recital Policy

All dancers* are strongly encouraged to participate in our dance recital. A costume fee per dancer (per class) will be charged along with winter/spring 2019 semester tuition. If for any reason a dancer will not be able to participate in the 2019 recital, please let us know 24 hours prior to the 3rd scheduled winter/spring class, and you will be refunded your costume fee.

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