Annual Recital Information

Each year ARDA hosts an annual recital at the end of our season.  A definite date will be announced after fall classes begin.

Recital fee

To obtain this wonderful experience and assist in covering the printing of programs (which are free to our guests), to keep our ticket prices at a minimum (only $5.00 each) to cover music editing and the production recordings (all professionally mastered) to give our students a $10.00 discount on recital DVDs and to give each student a FREE recital t-shirt....we require that each student sell (or purchase) a minimum of 2 full page ads for our recital program ($175.00 AND 200.00 FOR ELITE). Some parents opt to sell the ads and not be out of pocket...and some parents opt to purchase personal "good luck ads" for their dancers.

In addition...we are excited to encourage this offering the TOP ad sale winner a FREE YEAR OF DANCE!!
