Hill Country Tippi Toes holds two recitals/performances annually. 

Tippi Toes features  a 30-minute recital format twice a year for ALL dancers over 2 years. These formal Recitals happen in May/June and December.  Recitals are optional but almost 100% of our dancers choose to attend. 

Our 2021 Winter Recital will be on December 11th, 2021.  Recital participants should watch your email for specific details about your child’s show during recital season!  Recitals are our BIG showcases where your dancer gets to show off the skills they have learned all season.

Costumes are required for recitals! More show details will be sent via email and also included with costumes.  If you are not participating, please let us know before the deadline sent in your email!  Full Recital fees are usually around $100 per dancer and include their costume. There is no added costume fee.

Two tickets are included with each costume purchase.  You can purchase additional tickets  for $5 each on your parent portal during recital season.

Before Recital Day

Recital and Costume fees
There is a one-time fee for both costume and recital expenses.  If tights or shoes are needed, they can be added to costumes for a small fee. Total Costumes and venue fees are always around $100.  This fee includes your child’s costume, 2 tickets to the show, professional video of the show and professional candid photography!  (Additional tickets must be purchased for a small fee.)

We will be measuring children during class.  Costumes will go home at least two weeks before recital.  There will be in-class dress rehearsals led by their teachers which parents do not need to attend.

Recital Tickets
2 tickets are FREE and will be delivered with your child’s costume!  Additional tickets may be purchased online! Bring everyone and your cameras! Seating will be first come/first serve and you may enter the theatre 15 minutes before your showtime.  Earlier shows prevent us from seating family and friends prior to their showtime.

Payment is due no later than October 15th and we will charge all dancer accounts on that date.  If you do not have an account with us, please contact us to arrange payment.  To make payment log into your account here and click on the Visa logo and choose “other”.  

Recital Day!

Costumes: Please arrive dressed in full hair, makeup and costume as directed by their costume sheet they will receive with their costume.  Dancers who are in multiple dances may change costumes in the dressing room between shows.  Teachers will assist if needed.

Drop Off: Dancer will be dropped off at Dancer Drop Off  fifteen minutes prior to their show time.  Once you enter the lobby, follow the signs to Drop off before picking up any recital gifts.  Parents WILL NOT be allowed backstage or in the drop off area during the performance.  This is for the security of our children!

Pick Up: Dancers will be picked up from the stage directly after the last performance.  Each show will last approximately one hour from Drop off to pick up.

Photos and Videos: Please take all the pictures and videos you would like!  But don’t let it stop you from cheering and applause!  We will also have professional photographers and videographers on site during each show.  The photos will be available on our Facebook Page a few days after the show.

Stay Seated:  Please stay seated for the full show!  There may be breaks between dances for applause.  Please show our dancers your appreciation for all of their hard work by staying seated and giving exuberant praise and thunderous applause!

Optional Recital Items

Flowers: We will begin pre-orders for Recital Bouquets in April.  We encourage making your flower purchase online prior to the show to ensure your dancer gets their bouquet.  We will have a few extras at recital but they go fast!  If you pre-order prior to show day we guarantee your roses will be less expensive, fresh and reserved with their name!

Gifts:  We will offer an assortment of other recital gifts online and at recital.  To guarantee availability we encourage pre-purchasing any gifts to have them available in the lobby the day of recital.

Dance Gear Leotards, tutus, tights and shoes will be for sale at Recital as well.  These quantities will be limited. If your dancer needs dance gear, make sure you pre-order these so we have their size in stock!  We also have some very cute dance bags in stock!

T-Shirts/Clearance Costumes:  We will have an assortment of Clearance costumes and t-shirts available for sale at recital as well.  These costumes are good for classes, dress up and as gifts.  They are from prior shows and have never been worn!

The Tippi Toes 30 Minute Recital

You attend a 30 minute formal costumed recital and your child is on stage for a large portion of that time!! Your total time at the venue is around 1 hour from Dancer drop off before the show until the end of the show. This type of recital is so much FUN!  It is a great event to invite friends and family to and it won’t take all day!  You still have time for celebratory ice cream afterwards!

You only pay one fee for your dancer’s recital. This year’s fee is $100.   This fee covers the cost of the costume, 2 recital tickets, a professional video for every dancer and candid live action photography!  Talk about bang for your buck! And extra tickets are only $5!

We love our short recital format! Your child spends less time backstage and more time performing and you walk away with videos and photos to share and keep for years!! This keeps our sweet dancers happy and having fun!
