What is a Recital?

Recitals are the perfect way to celebrate your dancers achievements throughout the dance year! We have all learned so much and I know each dancer is excited to show off their new moves to friends and family. We encourage ALL DANCERS to participate so we can celebrate how much you have learned and grown in the 2021-2022 dance year!

Each class will be choreographing fun routines starting in April. You/your dancer must attend classes regularly from April-June so you/your dancer and their classmates are fully prepared for the recital with their routines! We have a lot of fun creating these routines and each class leading up to the recital we will be working on them! Even if you/your dancer just joined the Brennan-Lucey Irish Dance Academy within the month of March or April they will be ready for the recital! And if you/your dancer joined within the month of May or June please speak to us in person or via email about the possibility of your dancer participating in the recital. They will most likely be able to participate!

What to Wear

Your Brennan-Lucey performance outfit will be required for participation. If you or your child participated in a previous recital, a Feis, or any other performance in the past year, you already have the outfit! Make sure to check the Performance Outfit section of our website to make sure you have the fully completed outfit. Don't forget to add the Capes/Cuffs to complete the look and check out our Pre-Loved Bin to see if any costume pieces are available in your size!

If you don't currently have a performance outfit and would like to be involved, you can find all costume information here in the Performance Outfit section of the Parent's Area. Password: 2016IRISHDANCE

As always, please email us with any questions!

The Rehearsal


We will be working on our recital pieces for a small portion of each class in the weeks leading up to the recital so there will be no other extra practices needed! Please be aware that should you/your dancer choose not to participate in the recital, they will still be learning the routine in class with the other dancers, however, when it gets closer to the date we may work in two equally-as-fun groups during class so that those in the recital can focus on the routine as it will be performed on the day. Please let us know by April 30th if you/your dancer will not be participating in the recital so we can choreograph each classes routine accordingly.

 

NEW THIS YEAR! We will have a dress rehearsal IN CLASS the week of June 6th-9th where we will film each class performing their routine. You will need your performance outfit for the dress rehearsal! Meghan will turn each class into a 'mini movie' and parents can purchase their dancers class video to watch over and over! This way you can take away the stress of recording it on the day, and those who would like to only be virtual can purchase their classes video. Dress rehearsal videos will be $10 per class; if you are purchasing 5 or more videos it goes down to $8 per class.

We do HIGHLY ENCOURAGE all students to participate in the recital! Not only will it be a great opportunity to work on stage presence, confidence, teamwork and our choreography, but it will be a lot of fun and a great way to share and perfect what we have been working on all year with our friends and family!
