June 2024 Spring Recitals “Sweet 16!”

Our June 2024 recitals will be held on June 9th and 14th at Littleton High School! We are so excited to celebrate our Sweet 16th season recital with everyone! As usual, we will have 2 recitals split by age group. Our first show on Sunday, June 9th will be at 11am and will include: All Tots, All Preschool, All Combo, All Kinder, Mini Team, some DD extra pieces (no solos). Our second show will be on Friday, June 14th at 4:30pm and will include: All Levels 1, 2, 3, 4, Teen, Advanced, and Adults. We will have Dress Rehearsals on Tuesday, June 4th (4-9pm), Wednesday, June 5th (4-9pm), Thursday, June 6th (4-9pm), Sunday, June 9th (2-9pm after recital) Tuesday, June 11th (4-9pm) and Thursday June 13th (4-9pm). Each class will only be required to be there for a 15 min time slot on stage per class NOT all week/end. These times will get scheduled as we get closer to June.

This is the first time we have our recitals on different weekends and that is to accommodate 6 different high school graduations between our many seniors this year. This also allows for each show to be shorter in length and more accommodating for our younger dancers and families. This also accounts for the least amount of families having to go to both shows. Families that DO have to attend both shows will receive a special discount. Please let me know if you have any questions!


Costumes have been charged and ordered! Please make sure your account is up to date since we are still missing some costume payments! Your dancer will not receive his/her costume until your account has been paid up to date! Costumes will arrive anywhere between now and a week before the show! Some costume companies take longer than others and some things just have a later ship date, and some things are in stock now! If you receive your dancers’ costumes early, please make sure to try them on right away and hang them in a safe place! As soon as we receive a full class of costumes, the teacher will hand them out!

The rest of our current teams will have a few spots each and we will fill those by audition only. We have teams for dancers ages 4-18! Miss Richelle and I will send a studio wide email once we have all of the details solidified for those audition dates.

Spotlight On:


Elena Rodriguez Age 9

This is Elena’s 4th year at SDA and we absolutely love having her in class! Elena is always so happy in class and respectful and kind! Elena takes Broadway Pop and Ballet 2 with Miss Richelle and Lyrical 2 with Miss Becky. She is always prepared for class and has grown in her technique so much! She is always excited and ready to learn new leaps and turns and has a great memory for choreography! We know Elena will continue to grow and learn and we cannot wait to see her future with SDA!
