15th Annual Recital Prep/Performance Info

Below is a tentative timeline with tidbits of information about the events leading up to and including NHPA II's 15th Annual Recital at the end of this Spring semester. All dates should be finalized in March once the performance venue sends us confirmation. Keep in mind that all Recital classes will be divided into 2 shows, and a list will be posted at the end of this month detailing the "separation of shows".
Please read through the timeline carefully, mark your calendars, and keep a good eye out for updated postings in the studio lobby and on our website.

Recital Fees Are Now Due

Students wishing to participate in NHPA II's 15th Annual Recital will need to remit a $35 Recital Fee payment (per student) by the week of Feb. 10-13 to confirm their participation. Those students who have not paid their Recital Fees by Feb. 13 will not have a costume ordered for them and therefore will not be able to participate in the Recital performance. If your child is unable to participate in Recital please let us know ASAP.

Recital Costume Measurements

The Teachers will be measuring all dancers in their classes the month of February. These measurements will be used for ordering Recital Costumes so please make sure your dancer attends class each week!

Recital Costume Fees

Recital Costumes will be ordered towards the end of February/beginning of March, and payments for those costumes will start coming due towards the end of March. Costumes typically run $75-$85 per class. Exact Recital Costume prices and payment due dates will be posted in the studio lobby and on our website once they are ordered.

April & May: FINALE Production Rehearsals!

All students in (7-8yrs) classes and older are invited to participate in the NHPA II FINALE production which performs at the closing of each Recital show. A sign-up sheet will be posted in April, and students will need to be available for extra rehearsals on weekends throughout the months of April, May & June leading up to the show.

May 30: Recital Class Pictures @ NHPA II

All students will take full Recital class pictures at NHPA II on Saturday May 30. Students may also sign up to take individual photos this weekend. Picture schedule will be posted at the beginning of May.

June 6: Recital Dress Rehearsals (2 shows) @ NHPA II

Each Recital show will have a full Dress Rehearsal at NHPA II on Saturday June 6. Schedule of rehearsals and more information TBA.

June 13: Recital Performances!

More detailed information about NHPA II's 15th Annual Recital performance will be posted as the season progresses. Please continue to check the studio lobby bulletin boards and class doors, as well as our website, for updated information.

The NHPA II Dance Company recently attended JUMP Dance Convention in Houston with some of its Junior & Teen dancers. It was a weekend filled with nonstop dancing and left us all feeling excited and inspired in our chosen art form! The Teachers are so proud of how well the NHPA II dancers represented our studio in classes of all genres including ballet, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, ballroom, and even a professional audition experience. Congratulations to Ericka Morales, Jasmin Jimenez, and Madalyn Reyes for receiving Class Scholarships in individual classes.
