Dance Explosion School of Performing Arts Clemmons NC 2017 Recital

We are excited to be closing on our third year and to be entering our fourth this summer. For those who both do and don’t know, at the end of our season, we have an annual recital. For our third annual recital, the theme is Big City Dreaming. While the recital is not mandatory (as many travel during the summer, or have prior commitments) it is highly encouraged that your child get to perform. This is a great way for family to be able to sit and enjoy your child’s performance.

This year, our recital will take place at Frank Morgan Elementary School in Clemmons, NC on June 4th. It will be in the auditorium. The performance will begin promptly at 2:45 and end at 5:00.
