“We do not settle for mediocrity, but rather aspire passionately to reach our personal potential; that is, to Thrive. This is the essence of dance.”
A. General Information:
1. Class Levels and Placement:
Class placement is determined by an evaluation. Certain technical expectations according to the Thrive standard must be met in order to progress to the next level; no matter how many years of training one might have. Levels are by technical proficiency and not by age. Students will be individually placed in classes that best suit their personal needs. These decisions are made in the best interest of the dancers to create a solid technical foundation. Dancers should expect repetition as a cornerstone to advancement.
B. Dress Code:
CREATIVE MOVEMENT: Black or pink leotard, pink tights, pink LACE FREE ballet shoes.
COMBINATION: Black leotard, pink tights pink LACE FREE ballet shoes, black LACE FREE tap shoes.
BALLET: Levels 1-5: Black leotard, pink tights, split-sole ballet shoes.
OTHER CLASSES: Ballet attire or black tight fitted clothing- nothing loose or baggy.
HIP-HOP: Open dress-code, please use discretion.
Hair must be sprayed back securely in a bun so it does not fall out and disrupt the class for ALL classes except hip-hop.

a. Payment in full: By September 10th (5% discount).
