Annual Student Performance


For more than four decades, Longwood Performing Arts has provided students with an exciting performance experience through its Annual Student Performance. The annual staple of the dance school, the recital, is a rite of passage for thousands of youngsters. It is a chance to shine in front of family and friends that they anticipate with nervous excitement. The recital offers our students a professionally directed performance that allows them to present to their families and friends the results of a year’s hard work, dedication, and progress.

In-Studio Recital


At Longwood Performing Arts, we have an In-Studio Recital for the Ballet/Tap 1 classes to introduce both you, the parents, and the students to what is involved in creating and participating in a performance.  It is a wonderful opportunity for young students to perform in front of an audience and learn what is expected for a performance.  All students at Longwood Performing Arts are urged to participate in the In-Studio Recital however, it is not mandatory.

Interested in Attending?

All In-Studio Recitals will be held at Longwood Performing Arts in Kennett Square, PA in Studio C.  There will be a short reception after each performance.  Students and guests are welcome to stay for refreshments.

Our In-Studio performances are a wonderful way for the younger dancers (ages 3-4) to experience performing, within the safe and comfortable environment of our studios. We provide seating for all parents, grandparents, and friends of our young performers.
