Students may wear Halloween costumes (that they can move in!) to dance all this week. We encourage all dancers to participate because it’s a lot of fun!

Don’t know what to do with your old costumes?  Donate them! Bring your clean and gently used costumes to the studio. We will distribute them among local programs, such as Special Olympics, The Children’s Room, Cradles to Crayons, The Arlington Center for the Arts Children’s Theater, and public school special needs programs.

Peek Week – November 13-18* & April 9-13
Peek Week is when parents and family members can watch their dancer and the progress made during classes.
*Thursday 3:30 & 4:30 Irish Step Peek Week is Thursday, November 9

PAYMENT REMINDERS

Monthly payments are always the same. If students miss a class due to illness, injury, or any other unexpected event, we welcome and encourage them to attend a make-up class (beginning in May) or come to class and watch to keep up with dance vocabulary and recital choreography.

Costume payments will be due in two installments:

Due Date Payment
October 2-7 $60 PER COSTUME (e.g., 2 costumes X $60.00 = $120.00)
January 2-8 Remaining balance to be provided in December

Installments become non-refundable as of November 1, when the costumes are ordered.  Costumes are paid in installments for your convenience; however, placing an order constitutes full commitment.

See customer deposit totals for a specific class.

Late fee of $20.00 per month will be added to the outstanding balance on the account if payments are not received by the end of the payment week.

THINGS TO KNOW

NUT FREE environment
For the safety of our students, the studio is a NUT FREE environment. Please do not bring snacks containing nuts.

Vacation and Snow Days
We typically follow the Arlington public school vacation and holiday calendar.

If the Arlington schools have a snow day or close early, the studio will be closed. If school is not cancelled, but weather conditions are poor, there are 4 ways to check for studio closures:

  • Facebook page
  • Studio website
  • Call 781.643.7220 (A voicemail message will note if there is no class.)
  • Email from studio

Make-up classes will be available beginning in May for any classes missed due to holidays and snow days.
