Second Street Dance Company Dance Recital/ Showcase Handbook 2023 Information
Dear Parents and Dancers,
Each year, SSDC has provided students with an exciting performance experience through its May recital. It’s a rite of passage for hundreds of youngsters, a chance to shine in front of family and friends that they anticipate with nervous excitement! We are so very excited --every season!
The recital/ showcase 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. A big part of the dance training process includes learning through performance. The experience helps build self-esteem, self-assurance, and contributes to a sense of confidence. 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. That onstage experience can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong interview skills for future college or job opportunities. 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!
Recital/ showcase Updates and or changes: Additional recital/ showcase information or updates will be emailed and when possible, posted at the school. Make it your responsibility to keep abreast of this important information. It is our goal to make the recital/showcase experience organized and exciting for all involved. It’s a team effort; dancers, their parents, the instructors, and the directors are key players in the success of the show. Should you ever need help or clarification, do not hesitate to ask. That is what we are here for!
