2020 Recital Program Coming Soon

Information, Requirements & Conditions

The annual dance recital is the one event all of our NCDA dancers look forward to each and and is designed to be a pleasant experience for ALL participants…dancers, stage crew, instructors, friends, and parents. By participating in the annual dance recital, the student dancer gains the experience and knowledge of performing on stage in front of an audience and gives our stage crews the instruction and experience of running a live show. Participation in the annual recital can be Fun if you know what to expect, not only on the performance day, but in the days of preparation prior to that day on stage. Before you or your dancer decide to participate in the annual recital, we ask that you read all of the requirements, including Mandatory events in place for ALL participants in the recital and really take time to consider the time it takes in preparing for the big show.

Recital Tech Rehearsal Schedules

Managing the great number of participants and producing a quality show each year requires a lot of planning and organization. In making the choice to participate in the annual recital, the student and/or guardian (if student is under age of 18 years old) of the student, is actively agreeing to not only the recital performance, but the entire recital process which includes but is not limited to the student’s consistent and active participation in class time rehearsals and mandatory attendance at scheduled recital related activities including but not limited to recital photo day and dress rehearsal.
Upon the students/guardian’s signature of acknowledgement and agreement to the instructions and requirements of participation in the annual recital, Louis McKay, Tanya McKay, and/or members of North County DanceArts’ teaching staff may at any time, without malice, remove a student from participation in the recital for non-compliance to the recital information and requirements as described in this document whether recital fees, costume fees, photographs or tickets have been paid or not. All recital fees, costume fees, photographs and/or ticket costs are non-refundable, NO EXCEPTIONS.

The Mandatory attendance events are as follows:

CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE/CLASS TIME (to the satisfaction of the instructor)

  • Tech Rehearsal (No costumes) – Upper levels: Wednesday, July 22nd
    • Includes: Musical Theater, All Saturday Hip Hop Classes, Tap 3, and Ballet 2A & 2B
  • Tech Rehearsal (No costumes) – Lower levels: Thursday, July 23rd
Lower Levels Tech Rehearsal Schedule
Upper Levels Tech Rehearsal Schedule

We highly suggest that you do not schedule anything for these dates. We always anticipate running on time, however, we are working with your children and/or family members, and unforeseen snags in scheduling can happen. Please do not jeopardize your student’s ability to perform in the annual recital by your over booking your time on these dates or by your negligence. There will be no exceptions to this recital policy.

Recital Photo Day

Sunday, July 19th

Artistic Impressions will photograph our recital dancers this year. They are one of the premier photographers in San Diego county specializing in the dance field. Viewing and purchasing of photos are completed ON Photo Day on the NORTH COUNTY DANCE ARTS’ premises. Photo Day is scheduled for Sunday, July 19th. We suggest you block out your day for these photos since even though sitting times are scheduled, timing sometimes proves challenging when working with discriminating students and parents choosing their photo packages. ALL STUDENTS PARTICIPATING IN THE 2020 RECITAL ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CLASS PHOTOS. A STUDENT NOT PRESENT AT PHOTO DAY, FOR ANY REASON, WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PERFORM IN THE 2020 DANCE RECITAL.

As mentioned before, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PURCHASE PHOTOS. Dance photo packages will be sold at a starting cost of approximately $25.00. Many photo packages as well as “a la carte” pricing is available. More specific details regarding “photo day” will be posted in July.
