2017-2018 year classes begin in August. Please see the Classes page for class descriptions, and watch our Facebook page for opening dates.
New students are accepted throughout the year as long as there is room in the class. Preparation of the annual showcase begins in January. Students entering a class beginning in February may not be prepared for the June showcase.
The dance season correlates with the school year. Our dance year begins in August and ends with a showcase in June. During June and July, we offer a summer class schedule as well as several dance, acro/tumbling camps.
Registration is quick and simple. Under Classes on the Home page, click the Registration tab. This will take you to our registration form. Simply fill this out online and click Submit, or bring it to the studio with you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone at 702-XXX-XXXX.
We recommend calling us to discuss the placement of your child in the proper dance class. Our youngest students start with Combo classes (ages two, three and four). If your child has previous dance experience or has an interest in a particular style, we can help you decide which class will be the best fit for your child. Students may take one or multiple dance classes per week, depending on their goals and desires.
Dancers may withdraw from a class or classes during the year. However, because we are holding a spot in class for your child, we ask that you contact us directly to let us know that your child will no longer be participating. If your child wants to re-register for classes at a later time, participation will only be permitted based on class availability.
Yes, our parent viewing area has closed circuit monitors that allow parents to watch their child’s class in progress, except for competitive classes.
We do not require parents to stay for their child’s class unless their child is in a Combo class. Teachers cannot leave the studio to escort little ones to the restroom, so parents are advised to remain at the studio for the duration of Combo classes.
If you do choose to leave the studio while your older child is in class, we ask that you make sure they have everything they need for class. All dancers are required to wait inside until their pick-up arrives. In case of an emergency, parents will be contacted only if we find that their child needs medical attention. If a parent/guardian cannot be contacted, the studio will use their best judgment on medical attention.
Yes, because dance is a discipline and requires ease of movement and an element of grace and decorum, students should be prepared for class with appropriate attire and shoes. Dancewear guidelines are listed on the Policies page.
Our youngest students, beginning at age two are placed by age and ability. During the year, students may be transferred to other classes at the discretion of the teacher. Students will only be put into the next level based on ability, attitude, musicality as well as physical and emotional readiness. In most cases, students are placed in the proper class at the time of enrollment. However, If a teacher sees that a student is in need of alternative placement, the change will be recommended and made quickly so as to best suit the individual student.
As in any sport or activity, practice and repetition of physical movements is needed to achieve the best outcome. Repetition of movements with muscle memory will help train and define muscles your child needs to be the best dancer they can be.
Yes, we do have a competitive dance company. Please see our Competition page listed under Classes for additional information and requirements.
The showcase is optional for students. That said, performance is an important part of dance education. Establishing stage presence and building confidence and self-esteem is part of the experience. The showcase also provides an outlet to celebrate the achievements of a student’s hard work and progress.
If your child does not want to continue taking dance class, we ask that you have them finish out the month, and fill out a drop class form 30 days prior to your drop date. We encourage your student to perhaps try another style. Once showcase costumes are ordered, we cannot cancel an order. Dropping out of a class once costumes are ordered also impacts the entire class as well as the choreography of the number. We feel it is important to teach students that quitting in the middle of something that involves others is not fair. Students should at least try to finish out the year. There will be no refunds on tuition or costumes.
Tuition is due the first of every month. There are two payment plans. Plan A: Automatic bank account debit on the first of each month. Plan B: Automatic credit card payment on the first of each month. If accounts are not paid by the 5th, there will be a $15 late fee applied to the account balance. The studio accepts cash, Visa or MasterCard at the studio.
Yes, all paid classes are encouraged to be made up within one month of the absence. Please see the front desk for the best make-up class options.
Yes, the studio offers tuition discounts depending on the number of children per family and the number of classes the family takes. Please contact the studio at 702-XXX-XXXX for specifics.
