5. Creating Lasting Memories
This is by far the best part of performing! Dance recitals are unforgettable experiences filled with joy, excitement, and camaraderie. The memories created during these performances become cherished moments in a dancer’s life. The costumes, makeup, and backstage moments become part of their personal history.
Younger dancers love watching the older dancers shine on stage and can’t wait to be “one of the big kids” themselves one day. Older dancers can be seen snapping selfies with friends, dancing around to music, helping each other stretch and so much more!
When I talk to our alumni dancers, they tell me they look back on their time performing with fondness. They loved bonding with fellow dancers and have forged many lifelong friendships.
Recital is also a special day to share with friends and family! There is nothing quite like seeing a loved one up on stage sharing something they love with people they love (and hundreds of audience members!). Speaking as a mom myself, watching my son dance on stage is just pure joy! Recital day is especially a special day for Grandparents (and know because they tend to be the ones giving the biggest bouquets of flowers after!).
