Spring Dance Performance Class


Performing is an important part of a dancer’s training! 


KCYA's process-based classes teach students the fundamentals of the art form. In dance, they may learn ballet positions, proper body alignment, choreography and even terminology. This performance class provides dancers with the opportunity to utilize the skills and talents developed in class in a bigger production, with their classmates, on stage and for an audience. Performing is such an important part of an arts education, we hope your child will join us!

Parent Volunteers:

At least one parent volunteer will be needed for each class. The volunteer will assist with costume fittings and supervision of the dancers at rehearsals and during the performance. Volunteers will be able to watch the show with the dancers. Please email Brianna Bhutton@kcya.org if you'd like to be a parent volunteer.


Costumes and Make-up:

There are no additional costume fees; however, each dancer is expected to provide their own basic underpinnings including: camisole/leotard for modesty, tights/bottoms and shoes.

  • Costumes will be provided by and returned to KCYA and will generally slip on over these base pieces for rehearsals and fittings, so form-fitted pieces are best.
  • Light or flesh-tone camisoles are recommended for wearing under costumes.
  • Hair should be pulled back in a ponytail, pigtails or ballet bun which will be determined by your teacher. An email with more information will be sent closer to the show date.
  • Make-up is not provided or recommended for our dancers, but natural light foundation, blush and/or lipstick can be worn at your discretion.
  • Fingernail polish or colored nails should be removed for dress rehearsal and performance.
  • Dancers should arrive with their hair and make-up completed whenever possible.



Most rehearsals will be at typical class time, until Performance week. Students are expected to attend all rehearsals. Attendance is vital for the safety of the dancers and the success of the performance.
