2022 Recitals are this weekend!

For complete 2022 Recital info, please review/download the complete Recital Handbook.

IMPORTANT: Once you receive your costume(s), it is very important that you put them away in the closet and do not take them out or wear them until they are needed. It is important that everyone look their best in the recital, so please take care not to wear/play with/get dirty all costumes before they are needed for recital performances. Costumes cannot be replaced!

**ATTENTION: TYSOD Open School and Roswell Dance Theatre Company Recital Performances are on separate weekends!**

Some things to remember…

  • Be sure you check the schedule and are purchasing tickets for the correct show(s).
  • Shows will sell out. Plan to purchase any additional tickets needed beginning Tuesday, April 19 at 10 am for the best selection.
  • We recommend purchasing your tickets from a computer, instead of a mobile device. The most common user error for buying from mobile is not using all lower case on your email code.
  • You can volunteer during your dancers recital, work one hour before the show, and watch the show for free without having to purchase a ticket! More volunteer info here!
