A note about the allocations of classes to recitals
Sometimes families wonder why their dancers (who either take multiple classes or have siblings who take classes) are not all in the same show. We work tirelessly to create these shows and to meet people’s needs. We do everything we can to make the shows equal among dance genres, ages, length, etc. With so many factors to consider and so many combinations of dancers who take multiple classes and have siblings who take multiple classes, it’s simply impossible to satisfy this request. That said, we are proud of all our dancers and know that each show will be entertaining and fun for our audiences!
We believe that, as dance is a performing art, a performance experience is an integral part of our students' dance education. Downtown Dance Factory holds in-class Demonstrations in January, at the end of the Fall Semester, with our big studio-wide* recitals in late May/early June, at the end of the Winter/Spring Semester.
We pride ourselves on our professionally run, theater-based recitals, which are fun and rewarding for students and audience members alike. You'll enjoy everything from our 3-year old aspiring ballerinas and our cool breakdancing boys to our loud and lovely tappers and our teenage hip hop marvels ... and just wait for the finale!
All dancers* are strongly encouraged to participate in our dance recital. A $45 costume fee per dancer (per class) will be charged along with winter/spring 2017 semester tuition. If for any reason a dancer will not be able to participate in the 2017 recital, please let us know prior to the February break (i.e. prior to February 18th, 2017), and you will be refunded your costume fee.
* note that our TutuTots, TinyTots and DDFPlay students do not participate in recital, but instead have an in-class demonstration at the end of Winter/Spring Semester.
