The rehearsal and recitals will be held at the World Famous Wildhorse Saloon in Downtown Nashville!!


The Wildhorse Saloon

120 2nd Ave N

Nashville, TN 37201


Recital Rehearsal and Show Times


Sunday, May 15

It is very important that everyone attends this rehearsal. The backstage logistics are very different at this venue and will be difficult to maneuver if you are not at the rehearsal. This could be the difference of your child making it on stage in time for their performance!!


Show 1 - 9:30am

Show 2 - 11:00am

Show 3 - 1:30pm




Costume Rehearsals: Since our rehearsal at The Wildhorse is not a "dress rehearsal", students will need to wear costumes to class the weeks of May 2-13 to make sure costumes, tights, shoes, hair, etc. is correct.


Please refer to the dress rehearsal schedule that was emailed out. The schedule is also posted on the bulletin board at the main office.

All 5, 10, and 15 year students will receive their award at rehearsal. They will be introduced on stage right before the finale at the recital. Backstage space is limited and there is no place to put their awards for finale. This is to prevent their award getting broken or lost. Please give flowers/gifts after the show if you plan on doing so.



Sunday May 22, 2022


Show 1 - 12:00pm

Show 2 - 3:00pm

Show 3 - 6:30pm





**You should have received an email telling you which show your child is in! This info is also posted on the Bulletin Board across from the AAD Main Office!




We will be clearing the house (all audience members) between shows. If your child is in multiple shows, we will have a holding area for you to wait while the house is cleared to allow for easy re-entry. If you are staying for multiple shows, but do not have a dancer performing, you will need to exit the building and re-enter.




The first floor is reserved for families who have a dancer in the current show. If you do not have a dancer performing, please find a seat on the 2nd or 3rd floor.



All Accounts must have a ZERO balance in order to pick up T-Shirts and Tickets!!!


All FEES must be PAID IN FULL by May 6th!!


We will begin distribution of recital t-shirts to all PAID accounts as soon as they are available.




 Regular attendance is very important at this time of year! We want the students to feel very comfortable with their dances by recital time & this can only be accomplished if students attend class each week!!


With recital and the end of the dance year quickly approaching, we have quite a bit of important info to relay to you! We will be communicating this info to you via email so PLEASE be sure to check your email (don't forget the Spam folder!) on a regular basis to make sure you stay up-to-date on what's happening.
