Recital FAQ's


When do tickets go on sale?

Tickets order forms go out in March. Order forms must be returned by April 15th for best seating options. Your ticket requests will be filled by May 1. Any additional tickets can be purchased until our first show date in June.


How many tickets can I purchase?

All dance families make a ticket deposit, which pre-reserves them 4 guest tickets. Additional tickets should be ordered on the ticket order form provided with any special requests written directly on the order form. A free mothers pass will be included at ticket pick up which gives our dance moms access to the balcony during dress rehearsals and all dressing room areas. Only moms with the mothers pass will have access to these restricted areas.


How does the ticket system work?

Families receive a form where additional tickets can be requested. We complete orders based on level and order of receival. All ticket sales are final. Discount presale ends April 15th.

Sr. and Jr. Dancers – Blue form
Intermediate I – V – Yellow form

How can I sit with my friends and family at the show?

When handing in your colored ticket order form, please return your form and special requests together in the same envelope. We do our best to fulfill your requests. Make sure to return your order forms in a timely manner so we may best accommodate you.


Can you fulfill requests for my family and friends who need special seating accommodations?

When you hand in your ticket order form, please write any special accommodations necessary. Such as “my dancer’s grandfather will be attending recital on Friday night and has a wheel chair, please provide a wheel chair accessible space” or “my dancer’s uncle has a walker, please provide a entrance level seat”. This is your opportunity to let us know of any special requests you may need for recital seating. We will do our best to accommodate. Please hand in your ticket forms as soon as possible so you have the best chance at us fulfilling your requests.


Can I bring a 2-3 year old to watch the recital?

Yes, absolutely. Our recital is a family affair! However, every person who enters the auditorium must have a ticket. Children may sit on an adults lap once in the theatre, but must have a ticket of their own to enter the auditorium. This policy is to honor fire safety codes for the safety of our audience and dancers. Children who are unable to sit through an entire performance should not attend our show.


When do I get my recital tickets?

You will only receive your recital tickets in May when your account balance is at zero. Parents must come in to the office and pick up and sign for your recital tickets.


Can I watch dress rehearsals?

No. The theatre doors will be locked during dress rehearsal performances. This is when our photographer takes professional photos of our show, which will be available for purchase. This is when our technical crew is finalizing the stage lighting as well.

Only mothers with their Mother’s Pass will be permitted into the balcony to watch dress rehearsals. No flash photography is permitted during dress rehearsal or our show is permitted. Non-flash photography and videography is permitted for mothers only in this restricted access area.


Can I record video or take pictures at recital?

No. There is professional videography done of each performance that will be available for purchase. There are also professional photos taken at dress rehearsals that will be available for purchase. It is discourteous to distract our audience members and performers with shining light from a camera or phone during the show. It also hurts the quality of our professional recording services. Only non-flash photography and videography is permitted for mothers only in a restricted access area during our dress rehearsals. No videography or photography is permitted the day of the show.


What is the parking like at Zoellner Arts Center?

There is a parking garage attached to the building with handicap and non-handicap parking. The parking is all cash at a set rate. There is also street meter parking available. Street parking is free on Sunday!


Should my dancer(s) arrive with hair and make up ready?

Yes! We encourage dancers to be all set to slip on their costumes and take the stage. This ensures you have enough time and all the resources you need to get ready.


Can my dancer bring food and drink during our time at Zoellner Arts Center?

The only food and drink items permitted are water and any snack that is not messy (banana, gummies, chewy granola bars, etc.) NO NUT PRODUCTS in the designated areas. There is no food permitted in the auditiorium.


How long is the show?

Our show runs about 3 ½ hours including a 15 minute intermission.
