It’s your child's chance to share the spotlight with the special person in their life!
One adult and dancer have the chance to attend up to 4 in-studio rehearsals together to learn their dance and also practice at home. Both adults and the dancer MUST attend the dress rehearsal for their show. All practice classes and rehearsals are closed to outside observers! Don’t worry – we’ll take good care of them, and it makes for an AWESOME surprise!
Grown ups will receive a SPECIAL flower bouquet to give to their dancer for letting them share this moment with them. It’s an event you WON’T want to miss!

Frequently Asked Questions
(You may attend up to 4 rehearsals at any studio!)
Studio Rehearsal Times
1. Does it have to be a dad?
No. Moms/Dads, Grandparents, Uncles/Aunts, Older brothers/sisters or a family friend can substitute! Adult dance partner must be at least 16 years of age.
2. What if we can’t make it to all the studio practices?
It’s not necessary to attend them all – we encourage the adult and dancer to attend at least TWO together, but even with only two, it’s important to practice at home so that everyone is comfortable on stage!
3. What if my child doesn’t seem to want to do the dance even in practice classes?
A child’s response in class and on stage can be very different. We recommend carefully considering if your child will likely do well before registering, as the registration fee is non-refundable. It is required that children be at least 2.5 years of age to participate. The Sweetheart dance is an experience that will last a lifetime and spending time at rehearsal and working through difficult situations with your child is as significant as performing the actual dance. Try to remember this important fact when you feel confused, frustrated and tired so this can be the best experience possible.
4. How does it work with Adults backstage?
We still reserve our cafeteria space where children wait before their performance for female helpers only. Grown ups will be directed where to go, and what to do via email communication in the weeks leading up to the show. Everyone will all meet at the stage doors right before the performance and we will bring their daughters to them. Don't worry - we walk them through everything the day before the show at the dress rehearsal where their attendance is required!
5. Will the Adults still be able to watch the show?
YES! We know this is what you are here for! The Sweetheart Dance is one of the first numbers, so that adults can re-join their families in the audience. We will even give you a seat saver so that other audience members know it’s OK to save that seat for your special person!
