Hello Company Families!

We have some important reminders for Recital Weekend that we urge you to read through so your children are prepared!


Exchange a Photo Gift at the Recital with your Big/Little. This could be any gift with a photo(s) of you and your Big/Little (frames, collages, etc.).

Thursday, June 6th

*At Nordonia High School

8006 S Bedford Rd

Macedonia, OH 44056

*Park in the rear of the school and enter through the Auditorium doors.

6:15 pm - Company Dancers Arrive

  • Company dancers should come to Dress Rehearsal wearing their Recital T-shirt and black bottoms (shorts, leggings, joggers, sweats, etc.). If your child does not have their Recital t-shirt yet, we will have them at the high school for them to pick up. 

  • Company dancers should have their hair & makeup fully done (the same as they wear for competitions) as we will be filming and taking photographs during the rehearsal day. The only thing they do not need on Thursday is fake eyelashes. They will be barefoot for finale.

Company dancers must bring their outfits & accessories for the Opening Number on Thursday & Friday:

  • An all-white outfit: Hip Hop styled, over-sized

  • Black hip hop shoes (socks can be worn at your discretion, white or black)

  • ACCESSORIES given out at the Opening Number Rehearsal in May including Red Bandanas (Elite), Ballroom Skirts and Shrugs (Elite Ballroom), Red Fingerless Gloves (Elite Jazz), and Long Skirts (Pre-Pro). We kept the Red tinted Sunglasses that our Company Jazz dancers need for "Calm Down" and will hand those out before they dance. If your child did not receive any of these accessories, we will have them at the high school to give them. 

  • Female Elite Dancers need a tight-fitting, all-black outfit that can be worn under the white outfit and then once the white outfit is taken off, can be worn for certain sections of the dance (sports bras, cropped tank tops, bike shorts or booty shorts, no leggings or pants, must be tight-fitting).

  • Elite Dancers in Ballroom need Ballroom Shoes or they cannot perform in the Ballroom sections. 

  • Upon arrival, dancers should immediately go to the dressing rooms to drop off belongings, check-in with teachers, and head to the audience. Audience members will enter the auditorium after dropping off children and can find any seat in the audience.

6:30-7:00 pm - Rec/Prep/Company Finale Rehearsal

7:00-8:00 pm - Awards Ceremony

  • We would love for all of our dancers and families to be at the Awards Ceremony where we will present our Graduating Seniors, 5, 10, and 15-Year Award Winners, Ballet Training Program Trainees, Dancer of the Year, and more! Dancers will sit in the audience during the Awards Ceremony.
