Welcome to our Studio Teams who start September 5th-September 7
Studio/Recreation Class Reminders:
Please bring the completed forms listed below next week and drop off in the office. These were sent previously in an email or can be downloaded here
Auto Pay Form
You will be receiving an email with a link to join our BAND group. We will be using this group chat application to share important information and instructional videos.
We ask that parents do not stay to watch their dancer. It is very difficult for our teachers to lead their class when the dancers are distracted. We do welcome parents to watch from the waiting areas the last 5 minutes of class and teachers will also be uploading progress videos on the band app.
Please be on time dropping off and picking up your dancer! Teachers have classes back to back and cannot watch kids left at the studio! If you will be late, please call and let the office know.
Tuition is due by the 15th of every month. $15 late fees will be posted on the 16th of each month for accounts not current. Enrollment in our autopay system is required for all tuition charges.
The first costume fee of $85 will be Due by October 1st. Included in this fee will be a pair of tights and dance shoes along with all costume pieces. We will be measuring the dancers during their dance classes. The second costume fee of $60 will not be due until February 1st. These fees will not be part of our autopay system and must be paid separately through the office or online. A $15 late fee will be added if not paid on time.
A $3 processing fee is charged for any debit/credit card transactions (aside from our autopay system). We accept cash/checks to avoid this fee.
Recital fees will be posted in November for $55, (Except for Toddler Time class) and will be due by December 10th. Entry to our December Recital will be FREE for spectators. Date and time TBD!
Dance attire is required for dance class! Please have dancers wear form fitting dance clothes. No jeans, baggy t-shirts, etc! We want to see those lines! Dance shoes will be coming with their costume package. If they do not have a dance shoe yet, bare feet during class is fine.
Don't forget to. pull hair back securely and bring a water bottle!
We are SO EXCITED to get the year started! Any questions, please let us know!

Competition Team Info and Reminders

If you're feeling sick or have a fever, please stay home so we don't spread germs.
