Annual Recital

A huge part of training is learning through performance. Our annual recital helps to build self confidence, develops students retention skills, and teaches them to work with their classmates on a group performance to learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.

MWDR offers our students a professionally directed and choreographed performance. This allows students to show their families and friends the hard work, dedication, and progress they have made throughout the season. Each dancer will perform a piece for each style of dance they are registered for.
