What is the Dance Recital?
It’s time to register for the annual summer recital! Held on June 5th and 6th, it is a fun and special weekend for our dancers to show off their hard work in class.

What is the cost to participate?
For all dancers, the cost to participate in the recital is $110. This includes the recital fee, costume fee, and one free ticket. The fee is broken up into two $55 charges and will automatically process to the card you currently have on file.
The first payment will process on February 15th and the second on March 15th.
Is dress rehearsal on June 5th mandatory for all dancers?
Yes. All dancers performing in the recital are required to participate in dance rehearsal. This is an especially great time for our younger dancers to go through the stage entrance/exit procedure with their teacher as well as perform under the stage lights. Many dancers who are nervous during rehearsals shine on performance day because they know what to expect!
What is the Daddy & Daughter dance?
The Daddy & Daughter dance closes each performance and is one of our most special dances! Practices will be held every Saturday from April 4th through May 30th and a video will be available to participants for at home practice. We ask that all participants attend at least the first three practices (April 4th, 11th, and 18th) and then can attend practices that work with their schedule. However, we recommend attending all available practice opportunities.
The cost to participate in the Daddy & Daughter dance is $125 for the first dancer and $55 for each additional dancer. This includes the dancer’s costume, dad’s suspenders and bow tie, and the Saturday classes. The fee will be charged in total on April 15th to the card you currently have on file.
Daughters will need to be measured for their costumes in March. Please email Olivia at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a fitting.
How do we purchase tickets?
Tickets will be available to purchase at the Central front desk. From April 20th to May 4th they will be available for $5 each. From May 5th through June 5th (or until sold out) they will be available for $10 each. Tickets will not be sold at the auditorium on June 5th or 6th.
What does my dancer need to bring for recital?
When your dancer is backstage with Heart & Soul, they will not need anything. They should already be in costume (including shoes) when you drop them off at check in. We have restrooms and water fountains available backstage.
What time should my dancer arrive?
After registration closes you will be sent an email with your arrival time, as well as information about the check-in process.
Can we take photos?
We hire professional photography and videography companies to document each recital performance. Several weeks after recital those photos and videos will be available for families to purchase. Please do not take any flash photos or videos for the safety of our dancers.
