December Recital Registration

Updates on what to expect for you and your dancer this Fall

Cherry Creek Dance Presents "Not Your Average Nutcracker"

Hello dancers and parents,


Can you believe it is already mid September? It is now time for WINTER RECITAL! After our incredible experience with the filmed Spring Recital, and working with a professional film crew, we can't wait to do it again! Taking advantage of this unique performance opportunity, we will be following a young dancer and her friends who find themselves in the world of The Nutcracker. Unlike your average Nutcracker, we will not be limited to solely ballet dances. There will be tap dancing candy canes, breakdancing soldiers and much more! All of our students will be eligible to participate in the production of the movie. We are so excited to share this groundbreaking version of our winter recital that has never been done before!


Filming will take place between November 30th and December 9th, 2020. Dancers will receive their specific filming time by Monday, November 2nd. Classes will continue after filming dates with more dance technique, new winter dance combinations, and fun inspiration for dancers to work on during the holiday break December 23rd-January 3rd.


On December 18th, 2020, the production will be complete and we will be having a studio wide Watch Party from the comfort of our own homes. Mark your calendars now and don't forget to invite all of your closest friends and family members to watch with you. Each registered dancer will receive one license to view the final product. Additional licenses will be available for purchase in December.


Registration will look a little different for this recital than it has in the past. Please read all of the below information carefully.


For this recital we will be reusing many costumes from the spring recital.This is good news for you! If you already have the required costume, and it fits, you do not need to purchase a new one.

How to measure for your costume

Girth is the most important measurement when determining size! To measure girth, place a tape measure at the top of the shoulder where a leotard strap sits, then down through the crotch and back to the same shoulder. Measuring tape should be close to the body but not tight.
