General End of the year Performance Information!


Each year Danceography of Syracuse has a year-end performance in June. Our end of the year performance is way for the dancers to showcase what they have been working on throughout the year and be able to share it with their loved ones.  Our mid-year performance is a more casual version of our end of the year performance. Our end of the year performance will include costumes, finished choreography, ticket sales and much more! 


This year’s performance is on Sunday, June 9th at the Gilette Middle School Auditorium. 


We give a big thanks Sharkey’s Event Center for hosting us the past years; we’ve had great success there and a lot of fun, but we have decided to go with more of a center location for both studio locations as well as a more professional look while keeping some of our core values in a performance location. 


After the problems with the Kallet and the second show selling out, with a little help from some great parents we were able to quickly get approved for the school auditorium!


Before Performance Questions


Do I need to purchase tickets?
Yes, everyone needs a wristband ticket besides the dancers and children the age of 2 and under, this includes parents of dancers as well. For tickets, we use wristbands to allow a quicker entry time. Everyone must be wearing their wristband upon entry! Make sure to hand out wristbands to your friends and family prior to performance or we will not be able to let them in. 


When do I purchase wristbands and how?

All wristbands must be bought through the website shop (, wristbands will not be sold in the studio. We recommend buying them as soon as possible! Please ensure you are purchasing wristbands for the correct show. 


Will wristbands be available at the door?
If we haven't sold out yet. They will be $15, exact cash only. Please plan ahead as we cannot ensure you will be able to get in. Wristbands will be taken off the website shop on the Thursday prior to the performance. 


Can I return wristbands if I bought too many?

We will not accept any return of wristbands. You can resell them on the parents Facebook page. 


During Performance Questions

When and how should we arrive?
Please arrive no earlier than a half hour before your child dances. For an estimated time, take the dance number and multiply it by 3 since each number is about 3 mins long. No one will be let in until a half hour before the performance starts. You can change into your costume there but please have your hair and make-up done prior to arriving. 


Will you have rotating seats like previous years?

Yes, we will have the first couple rows marked off for parents or anyone who is taking a video. PLEASE do not bring your whole family into the rows during this time. In past years this has worked out amazing and gave parents a front row seat to see their children perform but we had difficulty with families who brought their entire family/guests as well as people who couldn't physically move out of the seats fast enough. Please use this space just for parents. 

Can I take photos and video tape?
Yes, you are more than welcome to take photos and video tape! Please be aware not to post any photos or videos of other children without their consent. 

If my dancer performs closer to the end of the show or is only in one number in the beginning, do we have to be stay?
No but we encourage you to., we know children get antsy so you can leave after your number or arrive 30 mins before your number and be able to enjoy the day! 


Is there an opening number or finale?
Each year we choose a song to embrace for our performance. This year’s song is “Love Myself” from Andy Grammer. Before the performance starts, the teachers will go on stage and lead a group stretch while all the dancers will stay in the audience and follow along. At the end of the performance, we will do a group cool down where all of the dancers will be welcomed on stage at that moment to join all the teachers. 

When should I bring my child to the side of the stage?
3 numbers before her dance! Take a look at the program ahead of time to map out during what dances you need to start directing your dancer to the LEFT side of the stage. You will pick them up on the right after their dance. 

Does my dancer stay with me or are they staying somewhere else?
They stay with you! We have recreated the normal recital space in a way that is more family friendly and makes the kids feel more comfortable. 

Are there dressing rooms?
Yes! The dressing rooms are in the front of the venue, upstairs. There are NO MALES allowed in there, please do not send fathers to help. 

Who do I ask if I have a question the day of performance?
Please try to ask/email/Facebook any questions ahead of time. Miss Tess and the teachers will not be able to answer any questions the day of. There will be a variety of volunteers with name tags that you can ask and will direct you to someone who would know. 

Venue Questions

Is there parking?
Yes, there is parking behind the Kallet Civic Center. 

Will there be food sold? NO:(
With the recent changes in ownership of the Kallet, we have been informed that there will not longer be food or beverages sold. 

Will there be flowers or gifts sold?

No, we are not able to sell any products during our time there. 

"The girls can't stop smiling from the performance! It was a quick drive right off the thruway. Great air conditioned dressing rooms for the girls, food and drinks available for purchase and plenty of covered seating. The girls ate up the Danceography tent that had a bunch of goodies like performance flowers, t-shirts and teddy bears. I loved having the front rows cycle for each performance so everyone can get up close and personal for their own kids. (Granted you can see pretty good from everywhere). Also you can leave after your performance if you would like to hit up destiny for an extra special treat. It was a great experience and the kids were so glad to be back up on stage."
