Of course a grandparent, aunt, uncle or any family member is welcome; one adult per child.
The family dance will be first in the show, so adults will dance first, then be able to sit back & enjoy the rest of the recital. Dancers will join their class backstage after the family dance. Each family will participate in the same show that your dancer is already performing in.
