Recital 2021

“A Celebration of Dance”

Recital Dates, Times, & Location: All recitals are held at Avondale High School located at 2800 Waukegan St. in Auburn Hills. Our Friday, June 18th evening show will begin at 6:00 p.m. and our Saturday, June 19th evening performance is at 6:00 p.m. We have mandatory dress rehearsal on Wednesday, June 16th. Our dress rehearsal is also held at Avondale High School. If you are unsure of which show your child will be in, please stop at the desk.
We are very excited to announce that our Thursday evening performance will begin at 6pm and will showcase our Juliart Company Dancers. At this show they will perform many of their dances from the 2021 competitive season. We encourage all our Juliart families to bring their dancers. This is a great opportunity for our younger dancers to see where their dance training could lead. And to cheer on their student demonstrators!

Recital Tickets: We will once again be selling our recital tickets online through and a link on our website, Tickets will only be available for purchase online; you will not be able to purchase tickets at the desk. Tickets for the Thursday performance will be on sale May 1st, tickets for the Friday performance will be on sale May 2nd, and tickets for the Saturday performance will be on sale May 3rd. Further information will be given in class and via email as these dates approach. (Please stop by the desk to confirm your email address if you have not received emails from us recently.)

Recital Volunteers: Volunteers are an integral part of our show. We need volunteer help to supervise backstage as well as usher and help in the auditorium. A volunteer sign-up sheet is available at the desk. (Volunteers are needed for the entirety of the show that they volunteer for and are not required to purchase a ticket.) Please consider helping out to make our show one we can be proud of!

Recital Costumes: Students have begun receiving their recital costumes in class. Please note, that while we do measure each student individually for their costume, these costumes are not custom made. Students fall into a range of sizes based upon their measurements and these ranges are different for each company. We choose to order costumes from several different companies who in the past have sent us a reliable product. If alterations are needed, those are the responsibility of each family.

Recital Tights: We spend many hours working with our students to dance as one, in an effort to carry that unified effort onto the stage, we require that all dancers performing in recital have the same tights. Required tights can be purchased at the desk. The cost is $10 for child sizes and $15 for adult sizes. (Special order tights such as fishnets or footless styles may be more.) Tights will be available for purchase at the studio beginning April 5th.

Picture Week: Picture week is May 17 through May 22 during your regularly scheduled class time. We are very pleased to once again be working with the Field Gallery for dance photos. Individual pictures will also be taken at this time. Order forms will be available at the studio prior to picture week. Students will come to class in their costumes and with their hair parted left to right in a low ponytail during picture week.

Recital Videos: We will also be working with The Field Gallery for our recital videos. This professional, two camera production of both shows will be available to all families for digital download the morning after our shows. Access to the videos is included in the mandatory recital fee of $40 per family that is due May 1st.

Trophy’s: Has your child danced at Juliart for 5, 10, or 15 consecutive years at Juliart?? Please stop by the desk to sign them up for their trophy!

We are really looking forward to seeing our dancers take the stage this year!
