Frequently Asked Questions


Can my child join in the middle of the month?

No problem as long as there is room in the class. However, you will have to pay the standard rate.

Once I register can my child change their class day/time?

No problem as long as there is room in the class that you choose.


What should my child wear to class? Appropriate dance attire.

No jewelry is permitted with the exception of post earrings. No gum allowed.

Are parents allowed to watch?

We have a Parents’ Seating Area in the courtyard of the dance studio. For the safety of your children and for insurance reasons, anyone (including siblings) not participating in a class MUST remain in the Parents’ Seating Area.  We are not equipped to supervise children before class, after class or in the bathroom. 

What class should I sign my child up for?

Please sign your child up for the class that corresponds to his or her age as of right now.  Parents often want their children in an older or more advanced class than is appropriate.  It is best to keep children in a class where they can achieve success and be comfortable with the skills they are doing before moving on to the next class.  It is much better to move a child up if the class is too easy than to have to move them down.  Along with your child's motor skills, we also take into account their social skills.  Please have patience with the learning process.  It is always best to sign up for more than one class for increased retention of skills learned.
