Countdown to this year's Recital Shows:
RECITAL - THE BIGGEST DAY OF ANY DANCER'S YEAR!
This year's Spring Recital Shows will be held at the Edyth Bush Theater (Orlando REP) on Sunday, June 4th, 2017. We hold an early afternoon show where all Intro to Dance & Mini classes perform, and an evening show where all Ruby & Amethyst Level classes perform. Upper-level students (Topaz, Emerald, Sapphire, Opal, Diamond, and Team Dancers) all perform in both shows, with their routines being distributed as evenly as possible, and in some cases, performed at both shows.
Recital participation for the students involves two fees - one that covers the costume, tights, headpiece, and alterations if necessary, and another that covers the professionally-shot and edited Show DVD, Program Book, Souvenir Recital shirt, Show-Day staffing for the changing rooms, Show-Day gift, and Practice music through the Parent Portal. *The Colby Center is proud of their upper-level costume rental system, where students in Topaz & Opal levels and above RENT costumes for Recital rather than purchasing and keeping more expensive costumes. This assists with older dancers who typically take more classes being able to perform in more routines without the experience being cost-prohibitive.
Most studios claim to keep prices "low" by disguising them with the "nickel & diming theory," or by making you do shopping, sewing, and backstage work on your own - meaning you can't even fully enjoy your own child's performance!....we prefer to make your life easy & show you true, all-inclusive costs for participation with no surprises, and no work for you at the show!!!
The Costume portion of the Recital participation fee is charged with November's Installment of tuition if the family has not opted-in to the NEW all-inclusive Performance Package Program (3P).
The Second portion of the Recital participation fee is charged with February's Installment of tuition if the family has not opted-in to P3.
Tickets to our Recital Shows are sold online through the Parent Portal beginning December 1st, and are at your family's discretion. The placement of your seats is determined by your date of registration.
