You will receive a welcome packet on the first day of class that has our calendar and general information about the season.
Q. When does the dance season start?
A. We start our semester classes the first Tuesday after Labor Day in September. December only has 2 weeks of classes = a half month’s fee. We resume classes after the holidays in January and go through the spring recital on June 1.
Technique classes are available in June & July. There are no classes in August, except for competitive teams.
Q. What to wear to class?
A. Dress codes are established to promote learning & unity within a class. Please click on our dress code box on our home page. Tumblers can wear shorts & t-shirts for classes. HAIR MUST BE PULLED UP. Wednesday technique classes require a black leotard and pink or white tights.
Q. Does my child have to participate in the end-of-year recital?
A. Performing in the recital is optional. Most students are in the spring recital. Performing is one of the greatest rewards to a dancer. Students would be very disappointed not getting a costume and not being able to perform with their friends, so we encourage participation. Many students who are very shy at the start of the year “come out of their shell” throughout the dance season. By May, they are ready to perform in the recital.
Q. How do I pay for classes?
A. Monthly, Semester, Full Year payment options are available. Check, cash, debit/credit and is accepted. We also offer EFT.
Q. What is the cancellation policy?
A. Registering for a class commits you to that class. Please notify us so we take you off our mailing list if your child drops out. The student is welcome to try a different class, but we suggest that the child finishes out the month before dropping out. We recommend teaching your child 'to finish what they start" because we do not refund classes. We also do not refund costume payments once the order has been placed because we can not cancel the order.
