Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a dance recital and why should I participate?

A dance recital is an opportunity for dancers to showcase their hard work, skills and routine for family and friends. Dancers dress in stage costumes and perform with their class. Recital is a special day for dancers that gives them an opportunity to dress up, feel proud, play backstage with their peers and staff and gain confidence from their accomplishments all session. It’s truly a day they will always remember.

What is the cost for recital?

Recital costume fee is $60 for the recital costume. Children are measured, the costume is ordered and the dancers keeps their costume. Tickets range from $10-$15 depending on pre-sale. Proceeds from the tickets go directly to the rental costs of the auditorium, SAHS staff and security.

Our recitals are held at the beautifully renovated Bill Medley Auditorium at Santa Ana High School. The facility has a fully operating stage and staff, secured backstage, professional sound and lighting.

How to Measure & Select Sizes for your Child’s OCDP Recital Costume

– Measure your child while she/he is wearing a leotard or form-fitting clothing for the most accurate measurements, do not measure your child in street clothes

– When trying to decide which size to order, girth should be the most important measurement for girls; if your child’s measurements fall under multiple sizes, go for the larger of the multiple sizes.

– Have your dancer stand straight with their weight evenly distributed

– The measurement tape should be snug but not too tight on circumference measurements and stretched tight for vertical measurements

– XLC and XXLC sizes are made to fit a larger child, not a petite adult

Use your measurements to SELECT THREE SIZES, 1 size for Weissmans 1 size for Revolution and 1 size for Curtain Call

– OCDP will not select sizes for you. You are responsible for measuring and sizing, follow the instructions exactly; costumes are NON-refundable NON-exchangeable and you are responsible for any appropriate alterations.

– Your measurements and size selections need to be included on your recital form to be considered complete

– Boys: please provide street clothing size for Pants/Shorts and T-Shirt where indicated.
