The annual Dance Express Spring Recitals is a highlight of the dance season. The recital offers our students a professionally directed performance that allows them to present to their families and friends the results of a year’s hard work, dedication, and progress.  All students perform one dance in each of the styles of dance they are registered for and in the Grand Finale. Our ballet production, father/daughter dance, team production and company perform at all 7 shows.  


A big part of dance training includes learning through performance. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children’s success in non-dance activities. The experience helps build self-esteem and confidence, which can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong college and job interview skills. The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.

2017-18 Season Recital Date: May 3-6, 2018 (Mankato West HS Auditorium)
