Calliope Dance Recital

The year at Calliope culminates with a big Recital that is designed especially for our students, and for their families and friends to see them perform. Each year, we create a story-based performance with a variety of choreographies and music from around the world. During the creative process in the second semester of the year, the children not only rehearse their dance but also participate in the creation of ideas for the story, the music editing, and the lighting and set design; it’s a truly fun and collaborative process in which the children work together with the teacher/choreographers and the production team. The costumes are created for each child by wonderful local costume artists.


“Rave reviews” from parents:

My daughter is over the moon with excitement — professing her love of flamenco dance and a desire to continue next year. They both enjoy and respect their teacher very much!

The recital was so fun and beautiful. What a huge undertaking and a wonderful success. My daughter was so happy and had a great time!

My husband and I enjoyed the performance very much and we were very impressed with the children’s dancing, and all of the variety that was included.   You can tell that all of these kids are really having fun! What an amazing job to put that together.

What a wonderful recital this Saturday: thank you for allowing my daughter to be a part of it. She had the time of her life and keeps talking about it. We are more excited than ever about Calliope Dance following the fantastic recital.

Yesterday was our first experience seeing and participating in a Calliope recital. It was absolutely spectacular!  My family and I had no idea what a huge event it would be and are so pleased to have our daughters be part of your school.

After the recital my daughter says she wants to take ballet forever — or at least until she’s “grown up” and can then teach classes too!

The recital is always a lovely experience- the kids and costumes are all amazing.

The show was an absolute delight to watch! Our daughter still cannot stop talking about it, and has worn her costume every day since.

This was my daughter’s first year with Calliope Dance Studio. Both she and I have been thrilled with the program. She adores her ballet class and asks me every morning, “Mom, is today my ballet class?”.

The recital was absolutely spectacular.  I can’t say enough about your wonderful dance program.  Thank you so much for putting together an incredible program.

A fabulous recital. We really enjoyed seeing all the kids shine. Clearly, a lot of love and a lot work went into the making of this performance and we’re so glad our daughter could be part of it.
