From the graceful movement of Ballet…to the quick beat of Jazz…to the synchronized sounds of tapping toes…the New Lenox Community Park District “Galaxy Dancers” has it all! This year’s annual recital theme is “The ABC’s of Dance.” Family and friends are invited to join our students at their end-of-season Dance Recital at Lincoln-Way East High School which will be held on Sunday, May 19.

A non-refundable $20 Recital fee per family at the time of Registration
Additional Fees of $40-$55 for costumes to the instructor

Please note that extra recital practices will be scheduled prior to the Recital Presentation. Due to priority registration of current dance participants, there are limited spaces available. This is a progressive program open to both girls and boys. Students will be divided according to age in the following classes. Dance shoes will be available for purchase from the instructor on the first day of class.
Pre Ballet: An introduction to basic steps and positions. Students will learn a fun song-and-dance routine.
