Kids Etc YMC 40th Annual Dance Recital – Overall Split


A link to our dress rehearsal schedule will be available as we get closer to recital. Dress rehearsal is being held Tuesday June 4 at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, 174 Market Avenue. Please note that dances that have performed in competition DO NOT participate in the dress rehearsal unless noted on the schedule.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your session as listed, and don’t forget to allow time for traffic and parking.  You will be directed to the dressing rooms and then you may bring your dancer backstage or wait in the audience until your class is called. Other than the for the fulltime dancers, dressing rooms are not assigned.

Dancers MUST wear their costumes. Hair should be neatly tied back, however, stage makeup is not necessary.

Please note the final recital split is NOT in recital order.  Recital order will be posted as we get closer to recital.


Recital begins at 7:00PM. Parents should bring their dancers backstage between 6:30PM and 6:45PM. Teachers, assistant teachers and volunteers will sit with the children backstage until their performance. If you really want to stay backstage, you may. We are a user friendly, family friendly, recital. We want our recitals to be a positive experience for everyone. After your dancer performs, we ask that you come backstage and pick them up to sit in the audience with you. They will enjoy the show a lot more from the audience.


Tickets are available at our reception desk. They are $20 per adult and $10 per child under the age of 12. Dancers do not need tickets, older dancers are permitted to watch the recital backstage or in the balcony with their classes if space permits. While it is rush seating, EVERY seat at MTC provides an excellent view of the stage. Doors to the theatre open at 6:30PM on recital nights.


We could not have an amazing recital without volunteers!  Send us an email at studio@wpgkidsetc.com if you would like to volunteer, or volunteer online via your parent portal. If you are volunteering, you will need to arrive between 5:30PM and 5:45PM on recital night. If you are ushering, you are required to be there until the end of the show. If you volunteer, you get a free recital ticket.


We do not permit private recordings of our recitals. Plus, it is way more fun for you to watch the show and enjoy the ‘moment’ than be behind the camera.  You can pre-order your professional quality DVD for $35, or $40 for blu-ray. For an additional $10, you can get the recital on digital media (USB).  This is an excellent keepsake for your dancer. They will watch not only their dance, but all of the other pieces as well. Years from now, they will still be watching old recitals and admiring their progress along with their team members. My adult girls STILL watch their old recitals! Order forms are available at the front desk.


We would like to invite ALL dancers ages 5 and up to take part in learning a dance for the finale. This is meant to be a wonderful team building experience, and we encourage everyone to take part. A detailed email will be coming out in April with rehearsal information! There is no charge to be in the finale dance! Please email us at studio@wpgkidsetc.com to register your dancer, or register online via the parent portal.
