Ballerinas Dreaming Big & Achieving Their Goals
Our Tiny Tutus Recital is a lovely performance opportunity for beautiful little dancers who are just at the very beginning of their dancing ‘career’. It’s a lovely, stress-free chance to put on a beautiful costume tutu and dance on a magical stage in front of family and friends. In term 2, our ballerinas will begin to learn a dance. This dance will be a combination of steps taught in class. Learning a routine is a wonderful way for ballerinas to have a goal to strive towards.
On the day of the recital, your Tiny Tutus class teacher will be there back and on stage to guide our ballerinas as necessary. Some classes may be able to perform more independently than others; some classes may need more on stage guidance than others… but it doesn’t matter!!! All Teeny ballerinas also have a parent backstage with them.
A Tiny Tutus Recital is Pure Magic
Our Recitals are all about having fun and gaining confidence. Ballerinas experience the thrill of being backstage at recital, along with “The Dressing Room Fairy”, their class teacher and volunteer Recital parents.
Ballerinas play backstage with their class friends and the Dressing Room Fairy while in the dressing room, then watch from the side of stage as their turn to perform approaches. After they dance on the stage they return to the fun in the dressing room with the Dressing room Fairy until its time to be back on stage for the Finale. Should a ballerina decide that she needs a hug from mum or dad during recital, we will come and find you immediately in the audience and take you backstage.
Tiny Tutus Recitals run for 45 mins and you will see your ballerina on stage 3 times!
...Or 4 times if they choose to participate in the Daddy Daughter Dance.
All Ballerinas Speak Into The Microphone At Recital!
A highly anticipated part of recital each year is when our ballerinas take turns to speak to the audience – using the microphone to introduce themselves to the audience and answer very special questions about their life and experiences in ballet class!
Not only is this magical moment a parent favourite, it is a valuable experience for each child as they learn to use the microphone, explore their public speaking skills, and delight in the parents reactions to their achievements.
We are so excited to offer our ballerinas this experience to practice public speaking in such a professional manner; knowing that this will grow their confidence to participate in class discussions and school events, and contribute to their young adult lives as they thrive in job interviews, in new work environments and social situations.
Tiny Tutus ballerinas can become anything!

Where will the recital be held?
We hold recitals at various locations across Australia and we strive to keep the travel distance within an hour of your normal class venue. Recital venue information will be provided prior to Recital Packages going on sale.
When will I find out the date and time of my ballerina’s stage rehearsal and recital?
Anticipated stage rehearsal and recital dates are published on our website. Times will be provided closer to the big day.
Is there anything else my ballerina or prince will need for the recital?
All ballerinas will need to wear Tiny Tutus stockings and ballet shoes with their recital costume. If your ballerina does not already own these items, they can be purchased through our online boutique.
Princes will need a pair of black pants or trousers and black ballet shoes.
What hair and makeup is required?
Ballerinas must wear their hair pulled back into a firm bun in the middle of their head. If your ballerina’s hair is too short for a bun, please speak with your class teacher. The Tiny Tutus boutique has special “Ballet Bun Kits” for $8 which include everything that you need for a perfect ballet bun.
You can view our video tutorial here.
No makeup is required for any of our ballerinas. We think they are all perfect without it.
Can I buy tickets at the door?
No, tickets cannot be purchased at the door.
Can I take photos or videos of my ballerina’s recital?
Due to music licensing rights and laws surrounding videoing of children, personal videography/filming is strictly prohibited.
Parents are NOT allowed to film recital on their mobile devices. You are welcome to take as many still photos of your own ballerina or prince as you would like.
When and how will my ballerina receive her recital tutu?
Recital tutus will be distributed in class by your teacher.
How many recital tickets can I buy?
As long as there are tickets available, you can buy as many tickets as you would like to. We welcome all family and friends to watch this very precious moment of your ballerina or prince's journey.
What happens if my ballerina or prince gets “stage fright” or nervous?
There will be teachers and parent helpers backstage to comfort your ballerina or prince if they were to become upset or nervous. If needed you will be located in the audience and asked to come backstage.
Can I be backstage with my ballerina or prince?
We’d recommend becoming a recital helper and be backstage with your little one. Being backstage is a magical experience and can ease worried feelings or separation anxiety. There are limited Parent Helper positions available per recital.
How can I be part of the Daddy Daughter Dance?
If you’d love to be part of Daddy Daughter Dance and your ballerina has turned 2 years and 6 months by 30th June, register your interest by email to email@example.com. We’ll be sending out more information soon.
It really is an experience not to be missed and always to be treasured!
