Introducing Our Recital 2023 Theme - Mission: Beyond Dance
Stage Door School of Dance is proud to announce the theme of our Recital 2023, “Mission: Beyond Dance“, a theme selected with a studio wide vote.  We love this theme so much as it was originally developed to showcase our incredible SDSD Mission Statement!
Stage Door will once again be returning to our recital ‘home’ at the Staller Center of the Performing Arts located at Stony Brook University.  This Broadway sized and caliber theater allows for Stage Door to provide our families with, not just another dance recital but, a high-quality, professionally produced dance production. We are excited to finally see our dancers hit the stage and celebrate a year’s worth of incredible work preparing for the #BestShowEver!

Recital FAQ

No. Dancers do not have to participate in our annual recital. However, we encourage all dancers to participate as it is a great, fun experience that assists in the learning process.

Every year, classes begin learning their recital choreography in January upon returning to class following the winter-break.

Each class will appear in one performance over the 5-6 show weekend.  Although we do our best to accommodate dancers in multiple classes, and families with multiple children performing, we cannot guarantee that your dancer and / or family will appear in only one performance over the weekend. This also means, your family may be required to purchase tickets to multiple performances.

Celebrate your dancer’s Recital 2023 experience by purchasing a keepsake. Everything from Recital 2023 Apparel, jewelry, DVDs, collectables, and more! Be sure to order your shirt now to have in time for SDSD Spirit Week in May!

 There is no better way to celebrate a stage star than by giving them a beautiful bouquet of flowers! Pre-order your dancer’s recital flowers today and they will be ready for you to pick-up the day of the performance right at the theater entrance!
