Recital 2021



Miss Jenny and our JDC staff are so thrilled with the progress and dedication that the dancers have shown this year and we know the dancers are so excited to share that with you at recital.


Although the College Of Lake County's MainStage Theater had previously approved our recital dates, their Board of Governors is not ready to allow live performances back in their theater at this time due to COVID, nor can they guarantee that they will be allowing performances by mid-June. 


JDC is committed to offering the students and families a live recital experience - it's such an amazing experience for them to dance in costume, in front of an audience! We've been able to secure dates at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts' Center Theater (the larger of their 2 theaters). Audience sizes will be somewhat limited and socially distanced, but all families will have an opportunity to purchase tickets; more specific information on ticket sales will be available in early May


  • Recital tickets will go on sale in mid-May. Purchase restrictions will apply based on venue-mandated capacity limits.

  • Recital tickets are NOT included in tuition, and anyone entering the auditorium for any amount of time must have their own ticket. 

  • Tickets are sold through an online ticket resource, not at the studio
