The Joyous Dance’s 1st Annual Celebration of Dance Performance!

What: Performing our recital numbers on a stage! A time for dancers, teachers, parents, family and friends to CELEBRATE the hard-work and growth of our kids.

When: Dance Recital: Sunday, June. 8th (Dance show): Doors at 1pm, Show at 2pm. Dancers required to arrive at 12:30pm. Dancers are to wear their dance costumes with hair ready & make-up (make-up optional)

Dress Rehearsal: Wed, June. 4th (schedule to be sent), rehearsals begin at 6pm & will be at varying times throughout the evening. (youngest dancers scheduled 1st). For the Dress Rehearsal, children will be required to sport Costumes but not hair or makeup.

Where: Aden Bowman Collegiate (Castle Theatre) in Saskatoon – 1904 Clarence Avenue South. This venue has a larger capacity then some of the high schools, so will allow us all the opportunity to purchase more tickets for friends and family.

Cost for Show: Performers and little ones (babies) who do not require a seat are Free! Adults and children $12 + GST. Tickets will be made available ONLINE via Pic-a-tic. I will send out the link via email once I’ve created it.

There will be an initial ticket limit per family (I cannot recall the exact venue capacity, but will advise once I do find out), you will have a couple weeks to purchase and then more will be released depending on how many tickets get utilized.

Costumes: Costumes are on their way and will be distributed in April or May. Parents are responsible for any alterations required. Once costume invoices are sent out, you will have 3 weeks notice for additional payment (minus deposits).

Hair & Makeup for Recital: Especially since many of our performers are quite young, make-up will NOT be a requirement. It will be the parent’s decision based on the parent’s individual comfort level whether they decide to wear make-up, the colors and how much. If you decide on make-up it can be an individual expression decided upon by the parent. We support whatever decision you make.

Requirements for hair will be sent out prior to the recital.


One final note: A couple of parents had spoken to me about the condition of the bathroom’s at Aden Bowman for last year’s dance recital. I want to assure you that I’ve spoken to the Rentals Clerk and advised him about this and he advised he will assure the bathroom’s are in proper working order for our recital.


Now let’s all get excited about CELEBRATING dance, achievement, creative expression, growth and making new friends.


Happy Spring!
