Do I need a ticket?

A ticket will need to be scanned for every guest. All guests (including parents, siblings, family members, and more) will require a ticket. Children ages 4 and under who will sit on a lap for the ENTIRE show will not be required to have a ticket. Any guest 5 years old and up or who will sit in their own seat at any point during the show is REQUIRED to have a ticket.

DYD dancers in Beginner levels and up, that are only in one Act, will be given a promo code to use when you are purchasing tickets to give the dancer a free seat. This ticket will need to be added when you are purchasing your tickets so your dancer can sit with you.

If you require handicap seating for a guest attending Recital, please contact us by email right away, BEFORE purchasing tickets.

FAQ image

Can I take photos/videos during Recital?

DYD does not allow any photography or videography during the show. This allows for the best viewing experience for all of our guests and eliminates the risk that someone's view of their dancer may be blocked by another parent holding up a camera or cell phone. All parents will receive digital pictures and videos of the entire performance, so sit back, relax and enjoy the show! There will be security at the event who will be monitoring this and removing anyone seen taking pictures/videos.

Hair, Make Up, and Accessories

Hair: At DYD, we do not require a certain hairstyle. A bun is required if the dancer is in a Ballet class. All hair should be securely up, out of the face, and off of the neck. All fly-aways should be smoothed out/down with hairspray or gel. No abnormal colored hair is permitted. Hair should be the dancer’s natural color and hair accessories such as clips, bobby/hair pins, hair nets, hair ties, etc. should be the color of the dancer's hair. Beads or other hair accessories are not permitted for safety reasons.

Make Up: At DYD, we do not require make-up, but do strongly recommend it. We prefer age-appropriate makeup. As the dancer ages, “stage make-up” becomes more of the norm. Please be conscious of color choices. “Clown” is not the look we are going for! We suggest a sparkly color on the eyes, pink blush, mascara, and lip color that is a few shades darker than the dancer's natural lip color.

Accessories: No jewelry or additional accessories are permitted to be worn for rehearsals or the Recital. This is for safety reasons and also because we don't want anything broken! This includes, but is not limited to: necklaces, bracelets, hair pieces, and earrings. Dancers are permitted to wear clear diamond-looking stud earrings only, if they would like. Dangle earrings are not permitted.

We are here for any questions you have (and to give suggestions!) about hair and make up!

Can I get my dancer something to celebrate their accomplishments for the season?

YES! There are so many great options! At DYD we sell flowers, merchandise, “Shout Outs” in the Recital Program and Candy Grams to celebrate your dancers’ big night! Some items are available right from the ticketing site and can be picked up the night of the Recital. Other items will be available on a first come, first serve basis the night of the show!
