Summer Programs: We do hold classes and camps in the summer! All regular season classes will end in May and those dancers who wish to continue in the summer will need to register for a new class for the summer session. We encourage dancers to continue their training in the summer to keep their strength, flexibility and technique building and for them to not to fall behind due to a three-month break.
Viewing Weeks: While it is fun to watch your dancer in class, it can be distracting for the students. The lobby windows have curtains that will be open the first week of each month so you may watch your dancers’ progress, and they will be closed the remainder of each month.
Promptness: Please be on time for class to ensure proper warm-up and not disrupt the other dancers. If a student is late, they are responsible for their own warm-up before joining in class exercises.

Tuition will be charged at the regular rate until the Drop/Change form is received. Performance Package fees are non-refundable. Tuition will be refunded for prepaid classes once the Drop/Change form has been received.
