Our 2015 recital will be held on June 11th and our dress rehearsal the day before on June 10th. Both will start at 6:30 PM with dancers expected to arrive between 5:30 and 6:00 PM. The dress rehearsal will be run in order of the show Mahaffeywith costumes and make-up; this practice will allow all parents to take pictures and video their child. It also gives the teachers and students a chance to clarify any last questions and become familiar with our performance space.
