Annual Dance Recital

What are recitals?

A recital is a performance of art where CAN-DO dancers perform choreographed maneuvers in front of a special audiance, you! Dancers dress in costumes specific to the production and show off complicated steps that take months of practice to master. Recitals are fun for all!

Recital season is a very exciting time in our Dance Program. In January, we begin to prepare our students for our Annual Tampa Gymnastics & Dance Recital. If you are a first time parent feeling unsure about the recital, don't worry you are not alone, we have all been there and survived! In an effort to make your life a little less stressful, we have created this page to provide you and your child with an enjoyable recital experience. We want the recital to be a time when every student has a feeling of accomplishment as they perform on stage before family and friends. This is your child's chance to shine!
