Am I allowed to watch my child in class?
Yes. We have large viewing windows and a spacious lobby for parents and siblings. Dancers will do their best in class when they are not distracted by those in the lobby, so we will close the curtains during weeks 2-4 of each month. The curtains will be open the first week of each month.
Can we try the class before we commit?
Sure. Your child may do one free trial class to see if it is the right fit.
How long do the classes run
Our school year session runs September through May and we have a separate session in the summer. There is no contract requiring dancers to participate for the entire session, but we feel it is important for students to complete their class commitment whenever possible.
What is your policy on music and costume choice
All of the music used in class and for performances is age-appropriate, as is the choreography. Themes of sex and violence are not allowed for any age. All costume selections are required to cover cleavage, mid-riffs, and rear-ends.
If I miss a class, do you offer make-up classes
Students are allowed to do make-ups by attending another class that has space available. Check with the office for class availability.
How much do your recital costumes cost?
Our costumes run from $30-$45, depending on the class and if they are child or adult sizes. We order them in January to ensure delivery in the spring. The cost is broken up into two payments- $20 in October and the balance is due in January.
What do you charge for your recital fees?
Recital tickets are $7.00 per person and all performers are free. Optional expenses may be pictures, flowers, t-shirts, and DVD’s that are offered as souvenirs and for your convenience
What is a “combo” class?
Combo classes are offered for young and beginning dancers to let them sample different dance styles. Classes offered for preschoolers and kindergartners are ballet and tap and ages 6-8 may do a jazz and tap combo. Dancers will do both dance styles during their lesson each week.
Where can I get shoes and dancewear for my child
We sell dance shoes at a reasonable price at the studio, along with a limited amount of tights and leotards. We also recommend Love to Dance Dancewear (at Locust Grove and Fairview in Meridian) for shoes and clothing, or any department store for children’s dancewear. We do not allow satin ballet slippers for use in class as dance shoes.
