The Just Dance Arts Academy annual recital will take place June 7 - 8, 2019 at the Covey Center for the Arts, a beautiful venue in Provo. Our recitals have always been a wonderful opportunity for each dancer to perform for their family and friends and show their remarkable talent and progress. We are looking forward to this year’s performances, and know that you will all enjoy watching your beautiful dancers shine on stage. The recital weekend is jam-packed with tech rehearsals and several different performances.

Here is some information that you will need to know as the recital approaches. Please carefully read through all the material and Contact Just Dance with any questions.
