2017 Recital: Homage to Tchaikovsky & Celebrating the Legends

Our upcoming recital,”Homage to Tchaikovsky” will be under the direction of Ms. Anne Polajenko. A trilogy of Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, and The Nutcracker ballets will lead off the show followed by a heart-felt tribute to singers who are gone but their music not forgotten in “Celebrating the Legends”.  As with our past productions, we will delight and amaze our audiences.

The recital is not mandatory.  We do encourage students’ participation in the recital to showcase their skills for the year.  It is also an exciting, fun time for the dancers to experience dancing in front of audiences. If you commit to recital, your child must attend all mandatory rehearsals and shows.

Please make note of the show your dancer will be performing in, either show A or B.  You will need this information throughout the year if your dancer has elected to do the recital.
