DanceQuest presents an annual dance recital every June. In order to participate, dancers must be registered for classes January through June.
Each class will learn one dance to perform in the show, and all students will learn the dance within regular class time. Every student must remain in the same class day/time from January through June, as each class learns a different dance with a different costume.
