Preparing for a Dance Recital

Dance recitals can be a very exciting, but also a very hectic time! Trying to remember everything that you need to bring and attempting to enjoy the moment are two very different things, so hopefully this post will help you feel a bit more prepared.


Hairspray Scissors Extra hair ties Band-aids Double-Stick Body Tape if the costume requires it Of course, everything you use for hair and make-up. Bring it all with you. As soon as you don’t, you’ll need a touch up!


A new coloring book with crayons (no markers) is a great choice.

Clean, dry snacks and water

FOR THE PARENT (In the Audience): If you are the parent that is in the audience, your job is easy – be a great audience member.

These are your responsibilities:

Be a good audience member. Clap for everyone.

Only leave and enter the auditorium between dances, not in the middle of a performance.

Flowers are a great post-recital “gift” for your dancer. A bouquet of any kind will work – we will have some for sale at the theater.

I hope that this helps in some way as you prepare for recital time. It’s a very fun event and creates memories that lasts forever. So, be sure between the hustle and bustle of the day that you take a few minutes to just soak up the moment!
