The dance recital at the end of the year is not an exam or a test. It is a chance for each dancer to celebrate their growth and accomplishments as they finally get to show off their skills on a professional stage! Participants can demonstrate how much they have learned and how hard they have worked throughout their weekly classes while they finally get to share this with their close friends and family. Having this opportunity is incredibly rewarding and the KADC recital is something that the whole family can sit back and enjoy.
What Happens at the Show?
When most people think about a dance recital, the first thing to spring to mind are little dancers in tutus doing ballet. But a dance recital is for any kind of dance. This includes ballet but also includes other styles of dance like jazz, acrobatics, tap, contemporary, hip hop… the list goes on.
A year-end dance recital is an annual event that provides the opportunity to showcase each dancer while demonstrating what they’ve been working on over the course of their lessons. Think of it as a moving art exhibit!
As a member of the audience, you don’t have to know anything about the names of the dance moves or how long it took to practice for the show. Your job is to sit back and appreciate how much training has gone into the dances in front of you. Whether you’re watching advanced students or the tiny dancers who are just starting out.
Where is the Year-End Dance Recital Held?
While some dance schools perform their year-end recital in school gyms or at community centres, KaliAndrews Dance Company hosts the year-end dance recital at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Quebec. This theatre is selected due to its professional setting which gives each participant the true, professional dance performance experience.
What Will You See?
Each of our shows focus on showcasing the students. Our students have all worked hard to master this somewhat intimidating art. As part of the audience, you can see just how far each student has come since the last recital, or since starting their first class. Members of our audience and of our recreational dance program will also get the chance to check out what the competitive dancers have done over the year. This is a great way to encourage our students to further their development and to show all of our guests where continuing in our programs could lead one day.
Once the performance is over, it is time to celebrate and focus on what the student did well!! At KADC we also hold an award ceremony close to the end of the show. This is where we recognize excellence within our school and within our classes. We believe in commending a job well done and recognizing exceptional improvement and work ethic by presenting these awards in front of each dancers guests.
