Each year SDSD hosts a year end recital as the culmination of our 32 week school year. Each class (excluding adult classes) at SDSD will begin working on their recital dance mid January and will spend the last 15 minutes of each class learning the choreography and developing performance qualities. We believe that learning how to be a performer is an integral part of dance education and we are happy to provide this performance opportunity to our students!
Participation in our Recital is optional although very highly encouraged. We do ask that you let us know about your dancer's participation by November 1st.
Please see additional information regarding Recital and Costume Fees as well as details about our 2024 Recital below!
Recital 2023 will take place on June 1st, 2024 with a mandatory Dress Rehearsal on May 31st. Our performance will be held at Bellbrook High School.
More information regarding our Recital 2024 including our Recital app will be available in February 2024.
