We are THRILLED to announce our Annual Recital: "BLOOM 2021"

Recital Information

Wow what a year! I can’t believe this is our 13th season! We never thought we would be navigating an in person recital during a pandemic, but the love and commitment we have to our dancers and their families here at Elite Academy of Dance is strong enough to over come any obstacle! Our 2021 spring recital “BLOOM” will be run differently this season as in years past. The selection of venue, scheduling and everything you need to know will all be explained in this informational packet for you! We ask that you read through it in its entirety as there is very important information that you will need so that we can prepare you and your dancer for a well organized, safe and most importantly FUN performance!

Date: June 5th (Company) and June 6th (Recreational), 2021

Our 2021 Venue: Scandinavian Athletic Club/ SAC Park, 483 Lake Street in Shrewsbury MA.
The SAC Outdoor Pavilion is a steel canopy pavilion where we will bring in our own professional production and staging!

How it will run: Safety is our number one priority! Therefore a traditional indoor event is unable to take place due to the Massachusetts State regulations.
We will be scheduling your dancer to perform during a specific time block for social distancing. During these time blocks you will be able to attend your dancers live performance onstage!
Due to the Massachusetts State regulations for outdoor gatherings and the capacity rules of the venue there are only a certain amount of tickets that will be available per block, no exceptions, as we are required to follow these mandates in order to run our event.
In lieu of traditional ticket sales for theatre seating and also for the recital DVDS, each family will be invoiced for a recital package. These recital packages will include audience spectator wristbands (tickets), and downloadable links for your dancers performances!


Families with 1 Dancer performing on Saturday - $65: includes 2 tickets/wristbands, and a downloadable link for performance

Families with 2 Dancers performing on Saturday - $105: includes 3 tickets/wristbands, and downloadable links for performances

**Dancers performing on two different days will be charged for two packets.

There will be extra tickets available to add to your package. They will be available at $25 per ticket and on a first come first serve basis. Extra tickets/wristbands will be available for in person purchase the week of 5/22 - 5/28 at the studio (ticket sales will not be available over the phone or via email). **Please note there will be NO tickets available for purchase at the door day of the shows. All tickets must be purchased in advance.

Seats will not be assigned, it will be open seating at the venue, and you will be able choose your seats upon arrival.

Wristbands/Tickets: Wristbands/Tickets from your billed recital packet will be available to be picked up the week of 5/22-5/28. Your invoice for the recital packet must paid in full for you to be able to pick up your wristbands. These wristbands will have your dancers last name on them for admittance into the venue. These are essentially your “tickets” to the event. If you do not have your wristbands on, you will not be admitted into the venue for the performance.

Downloadable Recital Video Link: Our professional videographer, Four Star Productions will be professionally recording the shows. You will receive an email with a downloadable dropbox link of your dancers recital for you to enjoy and share within 4-6 weeks after the show!
