Dance Concerts

All dance students are included in both concerts.

Spring Concert is held in May of each year. Your account balance, including May’s tuition, must be paid in full prior to receiving your child’s costume. Costumes will be tried on in the first class of May. Your child will not be able to try on their costume until your account balance is zero. There are NO exceptions.

Gymnastics Exhibition

All pre-school and school-age gymnasts will participate in our annual Spring into Summer Spectacular, showcasing all routines and skills learned throughout their class each year. We encourage families to invite loved ones to watch their gymnast's hard work and joining the fun held here at Above The Barre's Industrial Parkway location. Gymnasts will be ordering a uniform pertaining to their class for the show and expected to have their hair tied back. Upon arrival, students will give all their belongings to their parents as families find their seats, and students are escorted to their arranged place of meeting. There will be seating located all throughout the facility and families will have the ability to buy their gymnasts snacks or good luck charms provided by ATB's booster club. We ask that there is NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY for the safety of our students. During the exhibition, there will be performances from our girls and boys team gymnasts showing what they have worked on this year and letting our preschool and academy students have a chance to see them perform. At the end of the program, we will hold an awards ceremony that puts each student in the spotlight and gives great photo opportunities.

The exhibition will be in the last week of May and the beginning of June each year. Families and students will arrive at 6 p.m. and the exhibition starts at 6:30 p.m. Every class will have a specific day to come.
