Recital/Tots Showcase Shirt Ordering

Ordering information for TOTS SHOWCASE shirts (tots classes) is available HERE!

June Recital Ticket Orders

Tickets are available to order for $16.00 each.  Dancers will receive a ticket ordering envelope in class the week of March 13th.  Orders must be placed in person at WDC using the ticket ordering envelope.

Deadline to order for the first drawing for seating is Friday, April 14th by 7:00 p.m.

All family and friends will need a ticket to watch the show.  You are guaranteed to be able to purchase up to six tickets per family (not per dancer) per show.   If you would like to purchase more than six tickets, please include the additional number of tickets you would like with your order and we will do our best to complete your full order.

Small children/infants that will be sitting on a parent’s lap do not require a ticket.

Seating location is decided on a drawing basis. This eliminates the need for anyone to stand in a long line to purchase tickets.  Please be sure to make note with your order if you need handicapped seating for mobility issues only and note whether it is for someone in a wheelchair, can’t do stairs, walker, bad hip/leg (left or right side), etc

Tickets may also be available to purchase at the door at recital, as long as the show is not sold out. Tickets purchased at the door require cash or check only. There is no ATM at East Ridge High School.

Recital Program Ads

Families also have the opportunity to place an ad and/or a note to their dancer(s) in our full-color recital program book. This is a great way to let your dancer(s) know how proud you are of them. It’s also a great way for businesses to let the community know about what they have to offer. Program ad submissions need to be done online through WDC’s website. There will be examples at the Front Desk to look at.

*Ad orders are due by Wednesday, April 26th.

*Place your order online HERE

That’s right, buy a ticket to the live show and get a full recap video of every performance for free!* No need to worry about ordering a DVD – or sneaking an iPhone video during the show. This year, we’ve made it easy for you! We will send dance families the link to view performances from their show(s)*. So, this year, bring your friends and family to cheer on your dancers in person – and know you’ll also get a video treasure that will last a lifetime!

*Digital links will only be available to ticket purchases made for specific shows through Woodbury Dance Center. Look for more information to be posted soon about purchasing flash drives of recital performances.
*Show links will be sent out by July 15th.
