October Dance Showcase 2022

Featuring all Ballet Levels, Acro, Tap, Contemporary, 

Pre-Ballet & Teen Ballet

Dear Kat’s Artist Tree Families,

We are excited to announce the dates for our next DANCE SHOWCASE. This performance features Kat’s Classical Ballet, Tap, Acro, Contemporary and more, presenting all original choreography.  


SEPTEMBER 29 @ 5:30pm-7:30pm (Level 4,5,6 end at 8:30)


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1 @ 5:30pm & 7:00pm


All students will be performing in both shows.

We are thrilled to have the chance to celebrate all our students have learned in class and see them shine on stage!  Performances are an exciting and important part of a student’s dance education. Participation is a mandatory part of the dance curriculum. Class attendance is crucial to students feeling confident on stage, and to the success of the entire class. Multiple unexcused absences may result in being removed from the performance at the dance director’s discretion. No refunds will be issued. 


To put on the high-quality performance our students deserve, a performance fee will be processed on 8/31/22. This fee will cover expenses such as costume rental, choreography, music editing, additional staff, etc. Dancers will wear their class dress code as the base of their costume. Additional costume pieces will be rented out for each dance. As a result, you will notice costume fees are lower than previous years. Regular fees and costume purchasing will resume for our Spring Showcase. 

Fees will be tiered according to the number of unique classes an individual student takes:

  • Pre-Ballet = $65 $35
  • 1 class = $75 $45 per student (including Ballet Level III)
  • 2 or more classes = $135 $80 (Including Ballet Levels IV, V, & VI or ex. Ballet & Tap, etc.)

If you need to arrange a payment plan, please contact the front desk.

Additional information about hair & make-up specifics, tickets, and Blu-Ray orders will be coming soon!
