Welcome to Essex Dance Academy!


Tue., 5/1/2018 - 3:00 pm

Below are links to the show order for each of our recitals.  Please review to be sure that we have spelled your dancer's name correctly and have not accidentally omitted someone.

Our performances are on Saturday, May 19 at 11:00, 2:30 and 6:00 and on Sunday, May 20 at 10:30, 2:00 and 5:30 at Passaic County Technical Institute, 45 Reinhardt Road in Wayne.  Please report to the theater 30 minutes before the start of your show in full makeup and in costume.  Please drop your child off in the gym so teachers can take attendance.  Please make sure they use the bathroom before you drop them off.  PARENTS ARE ONLY PERMITTED IN THE GYM IF THEIR CHILD HAS A COSTUME CHANGE. Performers are to stay backstage or in the gym and will be supervised during the show.  Performers are NOT permitted in the audience.

At the conclusion of the show, the children will be dismissed from the stage, one class at a time, directly to their parents.  One parent from each family should approach the stage when announced.  If you will be leaving before the conclusion of the show, you must sign your child out of the gym and you will be unable to return to that performance.  Doors will open to the general audience 30 minutes before each show.  Seating is assigned.
