Students learn best when parents are not in the studio.  Parents are invited to take advantage of free wi-fi in the waiting area until class is over.

Class observation week is December 15-20; bring your friends and family, and your camera, and see what your dancer has been up to in class!

All students must wear proper dance attire.  We offer a variety of leotards, tights and shoes in Swirls.  Please see your instructor with any questions.

Additionally, there may be times where your instructor needs to cancel your class due to illness or a schedule conflict.  Makeup classes will be offered when possible, but this is not a guarantee.  Tuition is not prorated based on cancellations.
