When can I register for classes?

Registration for each year begins in June and ends November 1. Class sizes are limited, so registering early is recommended. There will also be a yearly $30 registration fee per student due with your September class(es) payment.

If my child can’t make the class for her age group, can I move her up a level?

Unfortunately no, students are placed based on age, experience, and level; please call or e-mail for a schedule.

Why does my child need to wear specific dance clothes and shoes?

Proper dance clothes are required for our students’ safety and so that instructors can give corrections on technique.

Pajamas, flannel pants, sweat pants, and t-shirts are NOT proper dance clothes and should not be worn in class. If in doubt, check with your instructor for guidance.

How much do classes cost?

Prices will vary per class, please see class schedule or studio owners for details.

Refunds will be given when a written notice of withdrawal is received before November 1. After November 1, payments are due through June whether or not the student withdraws from the class.
