Classes, Registration and Information

Our 2024-2025 dance registration is open until August 31, 2024. To register, please complete the registration and payment information.

Early Bird Registration: May 1-30, $50 per family 
Registration Fee: June 1-August 31, $60 per family

Family = siblings living in same household.  NOT cousins 

Dance classes will begin on September 3, 2024 and will conclude at our annual recital at the end of May. We follow public school holidays, but still have class on Fall Break, Parent/Teacher Conference Days and In-Service Days.

In August, you will receive information on what to wear to class, studio rules, class day(s) and time(s), etc.

In August, we have our Annual Open House and Registration Day. On this day, you may stop by our studio to register, meet the staff, get fitted for shoes and uniforms, check out the studio and ask questions. This day is the only day and time to purchase shoes.

We have a Special Needs Class (for children with special needs and/or learning disabilities): This 30 minute class will have 2-3 teachers who have experience with special needs children. The class is based on the child's level of understanding and moves at a slower pace than the other classes. It is a great way to get in some exercise and fun! They will do a dance at our recital with the help of our staff.

We try our best to accommodate siblings and students taking multiple class to have them come to class on the same day. If you have any special requests, please let the staff know and we will try to make it work.
