Dance Recitals


Our 2022 dance recitals will be held Saturday, May 7 and Saturday, May 21, at the Meridian High School Auditorium:
121 Mustang Alley
Falls Church, VA 22046
See below for your child's scheduled date and time.

  • Your child should arrive in costume, fully ready for performance, 30 minutes prior to showtime. Costumes are being distributed over the next few weeks.
  • There is no admission fee. We currently do not have a limit on the number of guests that can attend per dancer.  In the event circumstances change and we need to set a limit, all families will be emailed.
  • If you would like to volunteer backstage, please speak to your child’s instructor.
  • Recitals will be filmed and each family will receive a link to view the recital online about a month or so after the last recital. 
  • Gary Mester of Written in Light Photography will be onsite taking photos during the show.  These are available for purchase.  Details on viewing the photos will be sent after the show.

EVERYBODY DANCE CLASSES (does not apply to Adrenaline Dance Force Classes):

Preschool Classes - There are no rehearsals for preschool classes.

Attire - Please make sure your child's name is inside each costume piece. Your teacher will communicate what should be worn to each rehearsal. In most cases we will have one tech rehearsal and one dress rehearsal. Teachers will also communicate how to do hair and any other important costume details. Unless your teacher tells you otherwise, the first listed rehearsal (week of 5/2-5/6) will be your tech rehearsal.  The second listed rehearsal (week of 5/9-5/13) will be the dress rehearsal.  Please come in full costume with hair and makeup done.

Tech Rehearsal - We will run our numbers but it is not necessary to wear your costume or do your hair and makeup. Dancers should wear regular dancewear. 

Dress Rehearsal - We will perform wearing our costumes.  Full make-up and hair should be done as for the recital.

All company classes and Advanced/Senior Ballet should come wearing all black and bring all costumes to each rehearsal. 

Timing - Please arrive dressed and ready to go. You should be inside the theatre at the beginning of your time window so please allow time to park beforehand. Classes will gather, warm up and be ready to take the stage shortly after their window begins.  Stage rehearsal will last 30-45 minutes.

Costumes - Costumes are being given out as they arrive.  Most will be given out the last week of class.  If your child's costume is not in by the last class, we will contact you as soon as it arrives. If that happens we will either distribute them during tech week at the theatre or and will arrange for a pick-up time.
