DANCE & RECITAL

Every week, add on to your recital dance, and continue to perfect it.  The goal is to have 2 dances by each recital.  Once a dance is learned, the teacher should NEVER drop that routine until there is a new dance to replace it.  This way there will always be two dances ready at all times.
