We are thrilled to present our 2018 spring ballet showcase on May 19th, 2018, at 2:00PM at LifeAustin (8901 W Hwy 71 Austin, TX 78735)

Dress Rehearsal: Thursday, May 17th, 5-9pm – call time is 4:30pm at LifeAustin

Recital: Saturday, May 19th, 2pm – call time is 1pm

Preparation: Attendance this semester is extremely important for recital participants. Each of our lovely dancers is a vital instrument to the piece their class is preparing to perform. All dancers must be present weekly in order for them to successfully rehearse choreography, timing, formations and staging. This is a wonderful opportunity for dancers to experience and learn from working as a team and how gratifying that can be when it all comes to life on stage!
