RECITAL PROGRAM AND ADS

Personal ad with photo and text (max 200 characters with one photo) - $10
Business ad (max 400 characters with or without photo or artwork) - $30

If you choose to present your dancer with flowers to congratulate them on a job well done, please purchase them from an outside vendor prior to arriving at the recital. We will NOT sell flowers on-site on recital day.
Recital t-shirts are available for purchase through our ONLINE STORE in the parent portal. Supply is limited! The cost is $20 for youth, $25 for adult (S-XL), and $27.50 for XXL, plus tax. The t-shirt is black with short sleeves and has a white B. Funk logo on the left chest with the Freedom graphic shown above printed on the back.
DVDs/STREAMING RECITAL RECORDINGS
DVDs, Blu-Rays or streaming recordings of all recitals are available for purchase directly from our videographer, Dockside Video Productions. We are not able to offer live streaming of the performances. Details and order information coming soon.
Volunteers keep our shows running smoothly by helping with costume changes, lining up dancers, and chaperoning dancers in the dressing rooms. They may be moms, dads, older siblings, or close relatives. Volunteers are not required to purchase a recital ticket to the show they volunteer for and are able to watch their dancer's routine by stepping into the audience one number before they perform.
You can sign up by going to the VOLUNTEER tab in the parent portal. Thank you in advance for your help - we couldn't do this without you!
Recital time may be overwhelming for students, new and experienced! Please let us know if you have any questions along the way and we will be more than happy to guide you!
