Recital Details:



For the first time, recital tickets are for sale online! Buy your tickets online at now until December 5th at 11:59pm. Dancers will need a ticket if they are sitting with you to watch after their performance. If seats are still available after the online closes, you can purchase tickets at the door for $15.00 - CASH ONLY.

Dress Rehearsal


All dancers participating in the Christmas recital are required to attend our in-studio dress rehearsal. This special practice time allows for the students and staff a chance to know how the show will go and it is very helpful for the dancer.

When: Sunday, December 15th

Acts 1-10 will start at 1:00pm

Acts 11-22 will start at/around 1:30pm.

Where: Dance City West

Please arrive with required hair, makeup and costume specified for each class. We will be rehearsing with props and any costume pieces that the staff is providing will be given at this time.

Please arrive a few minutes early. Space is limited, once your dancer has finished their last performance you are free to leave.

Souvenirs & More



For full details about Recital day, please refer to our December Newsletter (sent to email or paper copies at the front desk). This gives a full outline of instructions for where to take your dancer when you arrive, where to change costumes, costume tips, recital etiquette and more!

When: Friday, December 20th at 6:15pm

The show is expected to only last 1.5 hours.


Dancers can arrive no earlier than 5:30 and no later than 6:00. Arrive completely ready and prepared to line up for performance order.

Where: Dart Auditorium, Lansing Community College

This will be a live, crowd-interactive recital so everyone must remain seated for each performance for the safety of our dancers and guests.

All costume details for each class can be found on the bulletin board at the studio.

Again, we encourage you to please read your newsletter closely and completely. Much more valuable information can be found there.
