Each year, on the third Saturday in June, the Academie de Ballet holds it’s annual recital at the L. Douglas Wilder Performing Arts Center on the campus of Norfolk State University. A year of classes, training and rehearsals culminates in a day of anxiety, anticipation and dance. Whether this is the dancer’s first recital or 20th, the excitement is always the same. There is never a charge to attend the Academie’s recitals. Click the links below to see a gallery of images from our past recitals.
