We really need your help during the recital. Please sign up using this link or talk to one of us. We have posted the sign up sheet as well.

Tickets for our recital are selling fast. The cost is $10. Tickets may be purchased in person in the dance wing of the Liberal Arts building on Tuesdays May 24, 31 and June 7 from 5:15-8:00, Saturdays May 14, 21 and June 4 from 10:00-5:00 or June 10 by arrangement. They are cash only sales at this time. Tickets will not be reserved seating but we encourage you to continue to social distance by leaving 1 seat open between parties. We will have very limited seats available on the day of performances and Sunday usually sells out in advance. Initial ticket sales will be limited to blocks of 10 tickets per show to allow everyone an opportunity. We have reserved 2 tickets for every dancer for the Sunday performance. Please let us know if you will not be attending the Sunday performance so we can make these tickets available to others. All reserved tickets need to be paid for by June 4.


We thank you for your continued support.
