Annual Concert

Get ready for yet another spectacular show! 

Every season our concerts and class dances are inspired by a magical theme! This year we will have a series of Beauty & The Beast concerts (approximately 70 minutes in length) which will be condensed versions of the Beauty & The Beast classic that so many of us love.

Gotta Dance dancers perform in beautiful costumes in June. Concerts are directed by our esteemed Concert Director, Gabriel Chajnik, a graduate of the prestigious Julliard School. Gotta Dance produces highly artistic and professional concerts that wow audiences year after year.

We will hold our concerts for 2022 at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) as we have been doing for 32 years. We anticipate that the audience will hold approximately 500 people per show.

Concert Ticket Pick Up Week is from May 16th to May 22nd

All families are asked to pick up their dancer’s concert tickets at the studio location where each dancer’s first dance class of the week is taken. They will need to be signed for. Each dancer receives four concert tickets for every class they take. We recommend that a parent or an adult pick up your dancer’s concert tickets. Once tickets are picked up, they are your responsibility. We recommend that you store them in a safe place prior to your dancer’s concert. Tickets are required to attend your dancer’s concert. Your dancer’s tuition must be paid in full in order to receive tickets.

When and How to Pick up Concert tickets
If your dancer takes only one class per week, then please pick up your tickets with the team member after you drop your dancer off for class. There will be a team member at every location all week.

If your dancer takes multiple classes per week, please pick up all of your dancer’s tickets at the location of their first class of the week. Tickets don’t need to be picked up on the exact day of your dancer’s first class, but they do need to be picked up at the location of their first class during the week of May 16th – 22nd.  For example, if your dancer takes Garnet Ballet on Wednesday in Martinsville and Garnet Tap on Friday in Bridgewater, all of your tickets will be waiting for you at the Martinsville location.  View our open hours on the Schedules page.

If you have two or more dancers, please pick up each dancer’s tickets at the location of their first class (closest to Monday).   All tickets are grouped in fours and randomly pulled.

Extra Tickets Available for Purchase Next Week: $25 per ticket
We will also be selling extra tickets during the week of May 16 to May 22nd. Please know that we have enough extra tickets for everyone to purchase as many as they would like to. Extra tickets may be purchased by cash or check or charged to your account.  We will also be selling extra tickets before each concert at the Raritan Valley Community College during concerts: June 11th-June 18th & Monday June 20th.

Costume Week is from April 25th to May 1st

We invite a parent or caregiver to come at the beginning of class to help your dancer try on their costume to make sure that it fits. This season, due to global supply chain issues and costume shortages, we will only be able to exchange costumes that have extreme sizing issues. We appreciate your understanding. All dancer’s accounts must be paid up to receive the costume in class during Costume Week.

Masks

We understand that some dancers may choose to wear a mask during concert time. We respect this but we ask that they wear a skin-colored mask. Dancers can wear their masks backstage and then remove them just before they go on stage to perform their 2-minute dance. Then, they can replace it once they exit the stage. Please advise your children not to discuss anyone’s choice to wear a mask and to always be respectful.

Yearly Achievement Trophies

Yearly Achievement Trophies are awarded to students who have attended Gotta Dance for 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, or 15 years. Please register for your dancer’s trophy in advance. Trophies will be handed out during Spirit Week in class from May 16th to May 22nd.
