Recital Program

We feel the education that dancers receive from the art of dance is unmatched. The satisfaction we get from watching so many amazing kids grow up and learn to love and appreciate dance is immeasurable! We want to provide unique opportunities for our dancers, and help them to experience many disciplines of dance. We want our dancers to strive for and achieve high goals, while at the same time having fun! We want the experience dancers have here to be a lasting part of growing up… it is our hope that the lessons they learn, their love for dance and the friendships they make at the Pavilion Dance Centre will last a lifetime!

About the Recital Program

Recital classes begin in September and end with annual recital performances in early February and June! The tuition rate covers the entire recital season (September 2023-June 2024) and includes a $75 costume fee for Preschool and level 1 classes and a $85 costume fee for level 2, junior, teen and adult classes. Costume fees are non-refundable for any reason after December 1, 2023. Recital students are required to register only one time per year and begin classes in September. Class placement is based on age, technical level and experience. Our instructors are highly trained professionals who work hard to ensure proper level placement of our students during the first month of classes in order to maximize the experience for each student. The PDC program is designed to develop well rounded dancers as we offer combination classes in addition to the option of taking as individual disciplines. Each style of dance is unique and offers advantages to a dancer’s training. Core disciplines such as; ballet, modern/contemporary, jazz and tap are strongly recommended. PDC instructors will focus the first few months on introducing and practicing new dance vocabulary and technique, followed by learning choreography for both Winter and Spring recitals.

Recital Participation

“Dances from the Heart” Winter Recital takes place at Elk Grove High School in early February. Students enrolled in recital classes will perform in one of the three shows. There are no technical or dress rehearsals for the Winter Recital. More information will be available in the Fall.

The 2024 Annual Spring Recital will take place June 8 & 9, 2024 at Harper College Performing Arts Center in Palatine. Classes are categorized into specific recitals to balance and present a variety of ages and dance styles. Each recital will have a mandatory “all day technical rehearsal” in the theater prior to show dates. Technical rehearsal will be June 7, 2024 and is mandatory for dancers in level 1 and above. This gives students an opportunity to dance on the stage with lights and sound, practice safe entrances and exits during blackouts and rehearse proper spacing.


Registration for Recital programs is open Aug-Nov.
