We are so excited to present our 21th annual showcase
“Divas and Legends” Sunday May 22th 2022
We are over the moon excited for our 2022 showcase! I am thrilled to share with our plan for a safe and fun show that lets all of our dancers shine on a REAL STAGE in a REAL THEATER!! We are back at the COUNT BASIE!!
Dance is a performance art, and the showcase is like our big game! Our teachers have worked hard choreographing routines that re-enforce basics, introduce new skills, and provide an opportunity to develop perforce skills. Our dancers have worked so hard this year and are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to do what dancers do – PERFORM!! We can’t wait to see all the amazing moments and memories created by our dancers! Please tag @Kick_Dance_Studios and hashtag #KickDivasandLegends and share all your wonderful moments from showcase!
Great seats still available!! One ticket is good for all 3 acts! There is no per family showcase fee this year. Every family will receive a complimentary professional digital download of our show!! Tickets are tiered pricing based on seat location – $49, $39 and $29. Click on link below to purchase!
Reminder – photo and video are not permitted at Showcase. Each family will receive a free digital download of the entire show! Please put your phone down and enjoy all of our amazing dancers! They have worked so hard all year!

Seating and the Order of the show!
Kick makes every effort to make the recital a fun day for both the dancers and the families. Each act is about 1 hour long. At the end of each act we dismiss dancers who have finished performing for the day from youngest to oldest. At the end of each act, dancers are dismissed in order to allow every parent to enjoy their child’s performance. (If we dismiss during the show, your view of your child could be obstructed from other families getting up!) A variety of dance styles and ages are presented in each act. This is for both the audience’s entertainment, but also to have a mix of ages backstage and to allow our dancers in multiple classes adequate time to change. Our tiniest dancers need the most attention!!
All dancers (all ages!!) need stage makeup! Kick stage makeup is black or grey eyeliner, black mascara, tan or brown eyeshadow, pink blush or bronzer, and red lipstick. No other colors please! Makeup must be applied at home and is required for both dress rehearsal and the show.
- Hair for Tutus and Bow Ties, #Danceclassremix, Princess Ballet, Shake it Up Ballet Tap, Mini Teams, Building Ballet, Hip Hop (Mondays with Miss Katie) and Pop Stars is a donut bun at crown of head.
- Premiere level classes and above hair is a center part low bun. A donut may be used for thin hair. (All Premiere, Connections and Edge classes)
- Please use gel, bobby pins and hairspray to secure. Donut buns are available at Harmon’s, Amazon, or larger drugstores.
Tights and Bodyliners Tights are required for all dancers in skirts, tutus, or shorts.
