Mini Recital Info

The recitals at the end of our dance year are a highlight of the dance season experience and are intended to give each dancer the opportunity to perform their newly acquired skills. Dancers love it because they are able to perform onstage in their beautiful costumes with their friends and loved ones close by!

We are super excited to be able to work with the Orpheum Theater to make this event happen for your little ones.


- What time does my dancer need to be there? Where is the Recital?

Recital is May 13th with the show starting at 10am. Theater doors open at 9:30 am. Dancers need to arrive at the theater in complete costume, hair and make up ready to dance at 9:40am. Please wait in the audience until your dancer is called upon by their dance teacher. 10 minutes before the start of the show we will line our dancers up by class and escort them backstage to their dressing room. Recital is held at the Orpheum Theatre 146 Main Ave W, Twin Falls, ID 83301.

- Do we have a Dress Rehearsal?

There will not be a Dress rehearsal for this show but you and your dancer are more than welcome to take a peek at the performance space and get excited about the show on Friday May 12th @ 5:30pm. One of our staff will be there to give a tour and your children will also have a chance to see the "Big Kids" in action while they rehearse on stage!


​- What if my dancer is in more than one class?

Not to worry we’ve got you covered. If you have a dancer who is in more than one routine, please bring their 2nd (or 3rd) costume in a bag with your child’s name to our designated helper and they will set them up backstage. Please also make sure that all shoes and accessories are labeled with your dancer’s name. When it is time for a dancer to change they will be escorted to their changing room. A helper will be on standby if dancers need assistance with their costume. This ensures that parents can enjoy the performance stress-free.


- Do they have to wear makeup? What about hair?

Parents may decide on stage makeup for the show. That said, please be warned that dancers without any makeup on will appear washed out and facial features will not be seen under the bright, harsh stage lighting. Footlights and spotlights are bright and the best way to look natural under them is to rely on a little stage makeup. We recommend at least a warm blush, filled in eyebrows (especially for those with light hair)  and/or berry colored lipstick. Keep in mind the Recital is a once a year event, and feels a lot like playing dress up for our Mini/Tiny dancers. 

Hair can be styled any way you'd prefer, but we do ask that it is secured out of their face (bangs are notorious for casting shadows). This will help children to not get distracted by it getting in their face and will allow you to see their shining faces onstage!

- Can I wait backstage with my dancer? Can my dancer sit with me during the show?

For the Safety of the Dancers, parents and guests are not allowed backstage at any time during the performances. Dancers will be in their dressing room with their assigned class helper and we will have activities for them to do to keep them entertained. All dancers will stay with their class until after the Finale, then teachers and assigned class helpers will excuse students once they have established visual/verbal contact with the dancer’s parent/guardian. No student will be allowed to leave the theater at the end of the performance without an adult supervisor or parent/guardian.

- How do I get Tickets? Can I bring family & friends to watch the show?

Tickets for the show can be purchased on the RECITAL PORTAL starting May 1st. Because we have a Mini Recital, families can bring as many family and friends as they would like without the fear of running out of seats! 

  • Mini Recital Ticket Price: $10

  • Who needs a ticket?: Anyone who will be seated in a chair.​

  • Seating Type: Assigned

  • All Ticket Sales are handled by the Orpheum Theatre and subject to their policies.

 - Can I take pictures and videos?

YES! We will be allowing video and non-flash photography of the performance. Please be courteous of other audience members when doing so. No one wants to see arms raised & phones in front of them while their little one is onstage! For our dancer’s and staff's safety, flash photography is strictly prohibited! After the show feel free to take pictures with dance teachers, proud family members, classmates, etc.


- What does my dancer need to wear? What if there is a fit issue with the costume?

​Please find your class costume info here: Costume Checklist Spring 2023. We have already had your dancer try their costumes on and made exchanges for those who needed one, however sometimes slight alterations may need to be made. Call us with concerns as we have lots of costume adjusting/resizing tricks!
