AYDT Recital Information

We are so happy to have many of our students back with us this Spring and are thrilled that this quite different school year has been successful thus far.

Like we did for our 2020 Holiday Recital, our plan for the Senior Spring 2021 recital (Grades 1-12) is to rent a small theater and hire a videographer to film each class separately on the stage complete with costumes and lighting. The videographer will then edit the videos to resemble our normal Spring performance. We are confident that between our student’s beautiful dancing and the work of our talented videographer, we can come up with a performance which will be joyful for our students to participate in, and also enjoyable for families and friends to watch.

​For the Junior recital (Pre-K & Kindergarten) all of the above applies, except that the performance and filming will be done at our studio as we usually do with the junior division classes.

The performances will be live-streamed later in June and families will also receive a digital download as part of the recital fee.

Participation in the recital is optional. If you choose not to participate, your child(ren) will still fully participate in class and learn the recital dance.
