Dance is a very unique art form. It teaches discipline, poise, grace, confidence and that working hard can produce wonderful results. At Manyet Dance, we strive to teach with love and respect, in a positive atmosphere, where learning is fun. We hope to instill the love of dance in the hearts of our students so that they can enjoy it for a lifetime.

Recital Updates

Click here for all information about the 2014 recitals.

June Show Times
On Saturday, June 7, our show will begin at 7:00 PM. On Sunday, June 8, our show will begin at 6:00 PM. In the past we have had an afternoon matinee show on Sunday. Because of school snow days, some of our dancers and dance families have high school graduation on the afternoon of June 8 so we have pushed our show back to 6:00 PM.

Our Saturday, May 31 recitals for previously designated classes will be held at the College of Mount Saint Joseph in Cincinnati, OH. The rehearsal will be the evening of Friday, May 30 at Mt. St. Joe's beginning at the following times:
* 4:00 for the 1:30 show performers
* 5:15 for the 4:00 show performers
* 6:30 for the 6:30 show performers

All other classes will be participating in the June 7 and 8 recitals at Seton High School with the rehearsal on Friday evening (June 6). Specific rehearsal times and recital procedures will be discussed at the final watch week during the last 20 minutes of class.

Recital Tickets
We will again have a lottery drawing for recital tickets for both the May and June shows. All tickets are reserved seating at a cost of $13.50 per seat. You may not receive your tickets until your account is up to date. Order forms will be sent home after Spring Break or they can be downloaded from the recital page.

Recital Volunteers

The Manyet Dance recitals are large productions and require the help of many volunteers behind the scenes. Women who volunteer will wait in the dressing room with their child's class until their child's dance and then watch from back stage. Volunteers will not be permitted to watch from the back of the auditorium. The constant entering and exiting is very distracting to our videographer and audience members. We also need volunteer backstage runners and ushers.

To volunteer your services for any of the five performances, please sign up online at If you are not taken directly to the our page, you can search for the Manyet Dance. The access code is "RECITAL".

Volunteers will receive a free registration for one student for the 2014-2015 dance year. Volunteers should pick up their signed voucher from the volunteer sign-in table outside of the dressing room area before the show. This is a sign-in for official volunteers who have signed up through the website. This voucher must accompany your registration sheet for the 2014-2015 year to receive one free registration and must be received in our office by July 1.
