2021 Spring - Web page banner.jpg

We are SO excited for this year's recital and happy to share that our students will be taking the stage on Saturday, May 8 at the Long Center for the Performing Arts!  Watching our students do what they love is the best part of what we do at Studio b and we can't wait to see them back on stage!


Putting on a recital during a pandemic certainly has its challenges and we appreciate your patience as we work through all of the details.  We are working closely with the Tippecanoe County Health Department and the Long Center to ensure that we provide a safe and fun experience for our performers and our live, in-person audience! 


We appreciate that you have trusted us this session and we will continue with our commitment to safety procedures on recital day.

  • Hand sanitation stations

  • Reduced capacity

  • Limited restroom access

  • Audience will be asked to exit the building immediately after the show for increased cleaning protocols

location & parking

The 2021 Studio b Recital will be held at the Long Center for the Performing Arts located at 111 N 6th St, Lafayette. (Long Center website)


On-street parking during weekends is free and open, with no time restrictions. The Columbia City Parking Garage located at 18 North 5th Street, is free on weekends and just two blocks from the Long Center.

dress rehearsal

Typically we offer a dress rehearsal before recital, however with COVID restrictions, we have made the choice to help our students prepare the best they can during their weekly class times. Instructors will help students with how to enter and exit the stage, routines will be rehearsed without the mirrors, and we will implement a numbering system on the studio floors that will match the stage floor on recital day. Plus our Studio b instructors will be there on recital day to help dancers feel comfortable, confident and ready for the stage!

recital fee 

The recital performance fee is $46 per student/$120 max per family and will be processed on May 3. The recital fee goes toward the costs associated with producing our fantastic stage show such as theater rental, lighting & sound, venue faculty, Studio b staff, security, etc. In addition, your recital fee includes:


  • A voucher per dancer/per show to be used on the ticketing website toward your ticket purchase

  • A full-color recital program

  • A special gift for each dancer at the end of the show


Click here to go to ticket site

Due to COVID social distancing restrictions, families of performing students will have priority access to our ticket site with a maximum of four (4) tickets available to purchase for each show in which they have a dancer performing.  An email will be sent to our performing families on or before May 4 with a ticket code that will give priority access to the ticketing site and include a voucher.  You can choose to use this voucher to cover the total cost for two back of house tickets, or you can use it toward the purchase of front of house tickets or the live stream option. ​Once you receive your code, enter it upon checkout through the online ticket ordering system to subtract the amount from your total.  

If there are tickets remaining the site will open to the public on May 6. 

Tickets are $16 for back of house, $20 for front of house and $25 for the Live Stream.


Ticket sales close at 11:59 pm on May 7; there will be no ticket sales on recital day; vouchers are non-transferrable and not redeemable for cash. 


All performers will wear their hair in a bun on the crown of their head - one hairstyle for all students makes it easier for students in multiple performances.

For your convenience, bun kits will be available for purchase at the studio - everything you need in one kit! 


Bun Kits: $13 +tax  includes:

  • bun former 

  • hairnet

  • hair ties

  • plenty of bobby pins​


We would like all dancers to wear some makeup to not appear washed out onstage. Black mascara and eye shadow in the shades of plum or gray are recommended. Cheeks should be a pretty pink with a red lip.  Older dancers’ makeup should be applied heavier for stage. Remember, the lights are very bright and without makeup, faces become washed out from afar.
