Dear Parents and Students,

For the past four years, The D.R.E.A.M Center has provided students with exciting performance experiences through its Recitals. It’s a rite of passage for many dancers; a chance to shine in front of family and friends, that students anticipate with nervous excitement.

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. Performance opportunities 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 they learn the positive aspects of working as a team.

It is the responsibility of the entire community, students, parents, teachers and directors to do their part to make a great show. The recital is only as successful as we make it - let's work together to make the recital a magical experience for your child!

We’ve created an online survival guide in an effort to clarify The D.R.E.A.M Center's preferred recital process. It can be found below.

We look forward to a great show!

Buying Your Costume

Costume Orders Due: Feb 10, 2023

This year we are implementing a "combo costume". A combo costume is multi-look outfit that serves different styles of dance: 

Base Costume (Leotard)
- Includes a tutu/skirt for the "Ballet Look"
- Includes a variation for the "Tap Look"
- Includes a variation for the "Jazz Look"

Our unique "combo costume" makes the recital affordable for parents and easy for students.

Traditionally, dancers are required to buy one costume per class. Which means, the costs can quickly add up for parents. This combo costume system makes the recital more affordable for parents. 

It can be a challenge for students to change costumes backstage on their own when participating in multiple classes. This combo costume system makes the recital process easier for your child.


  • Ballet/Tap/Hip Hop $95


  • Ballet/Tap/Jazz Costume is $115
  • Lyrical Costume is $75
  • Hip Hop Costume is $75


  • Ballet/Tap/Jazz Costume is $115
  • Lyrical Costume is $75
  • Hip Hop Costume is $75

Due to the fact that parents are not backstage during the rehearsal or the show, should your child have a medical condition or safety issue that our staff needs to be aware of, please submit it in writing to: before May 1, 2023.

Please be advised that it is TDC's mission to make the recital a positive experience for all involved. We reserve the right to prevent your child from performing onstage if your child is demonstrating any kind of physical or emotional distress. Even in this case, we must adhere to the no refund policy on recital tickets and recital costumes.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
