ABDC holds its annual recital in May at the Acton-Boxborough Regional High School Auditorium. We stage two performances in which students share their dance pieces — the culmination of their dance year's work — with family and friends.

The recital is a special time for the studio, when the entire ABDC community comes together to support one another. Dancers of all ages are able to interact, encourage, and congratulate each other on their accomplishments from the year. It is a time where younger students become inspired by the commitment and abilities of older students and are introduced to new genres of dance. It is also a time for the older students to showcase their progress and performance skills. For a full outline of what to expect, click here!




Saturday, May 18th

Show order:


Costumes and Tights

Each student has a costume and tights for each routine performed in the recital. Payment for costumes is due 12/15.


Tickets will be sold at ABDC beginning one month prior to the performance, as well as at dress rehearsals and on the day of the recital.  Tickets will be $20/person and will be sold at the studio leading up to the show, as well as at the door.  Families that must attend both shows to see all their children's dances (with the exception of competition team numbers) will receive one free ticket to the show of their choice.

DRESS Rehearsals

Students come to the auditorium with their costumes and tights, and practice their routines on stage in the same order in which they will occur during the recital. Each dancer is permitted to be accompanied by ONE adult.  You must pre-register this adult, and they will receive a name tag at check-in, only adults with name tags will be allowed inside the auditorium.  This is a new practice we have instituted for the safety of our dancers!  Dress rehearsal for the matinee performance will be held on May 17th from 5-9pm, and dress rehearsal for the evening performance will be held on May 18th from 5-9pm.  Younger children will rehearse first and then be dismissed as soon as they are finished.
