Please note: VIDEO CAMERAS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT THE RECITALS.  There will be a professionally prepared video of the recitals available for purchase.

EARLY RELEASE VOUCHER: Our recital dates are posted in September. This allows parents time to plan in advance to ensure their child’s participation in the dance recital. Sometimes however, conflicts do arise. In these cases, we use a voucher system for those who need to leave early. Therefore, if your child is unable to participate in the entire performance, a voucher must be obtained from the office, filled out and returned to the office prior to May 15th. This early release voucher format is taken to ensure the safety of all children. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD.

“Babes-In Arms” Policy: In consideration of our entire student body and their families, and in compliance with Fire Codes, we must firmly request that families with small children (infants and toddlers on laps and in carriages) make prior child care arrangements for their youngest children, as we cannot admit “babes-in-arms” to the recitals. We realize that you may wish to bring your youngest children, but we are governed by circumstances beyond our control.

RECITAL NOTE TO PARENTS:Students have worked hard to make this performance “special”. Without the cooperation and support of parents this experience would not be the success that it is for your child. As we have in the past, let’s continue to encourage our children so that they will find reward in their efforts.

Warmly, JLDC Faculty
