BENEFIT RECITAL

We are thrilled to be partnering with an amazing organization, The Andrea Rizzo Foundation for our Christmas Benefit Recital this year! Because we have been blessed with healthy bodies capable of dancing, we would love to help other children in our community join in our love of dance! Our goal is to raise $5,000 to put a Dance Therapist into Primary Children’s Medical Center. This amount would enable a trained and licensed therapist to offer Dance Therapy one day a week at Primary Children’s for one year. 100% of funds raised from our recital (ticket sales, and donations) will go toward this great cause.

RECITAL INFORMATION

Saturday December 8th: Egyptian Theater

  • Dancers will be sent home from Dec. 5th dress rehearsal with ONE wristband with their name on it. This wristband is to be worn by a parent or guardian and will grant hallway access for dancer pick-up after the show, and backstage access for costume changes (if needed). Only those wearing wristbands will be allowed to pick up dancers after the show. This will guarantee the safety of our dancers, while keeping an organized atmosphere back stage.
  • Both the matinee and evening shows are exactly the same and will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Video taping and flash photography of any kind is strictly prohibited. You may purchase a DVD of the recital for $20. All proceeds will go toward the benefit.
  • Energy Christmas Ornaments will be for sale for $10 at the merchandise table. All proceeds go to the benefit.

  • Parking is available on street, Junction parking structure or Ogden Eccles Conference Center parking structure behind building on Kiesel Ave. ($5)
