Dance Class Schedule

DANCE PROGRAM UPDATE!


Our dance program will be moving from monthly enrollment to a three month session enrollment. The dance season is from September through May and there will be three sessions throughout that time. September to November, December to February, and March to May. Signing up for a session means your child is committing to three months of attendance for classes.

We have decided to switch to sessions for all dance classes because of the group learning environment. It will benefit all of the dancers learning environments and keep classes more consistent. We feel it will be easier for dancers to progress with the same group of kids that are also at their same skill level. By building self confidence with dance skills and peer relationships with others in their 3 month session class, your child will become the performer they wish to be. With dance we also need to have a higher level of commitment, so that your child can get the most out of every class they attend. Our curriculum is setup so that within three months your child will learn a group of skills that will make them better, all around dancers and ready for the next level challenge.


Tuition is based on a 34 week dance season which is broken up into three sessions. Tuition will automatically be taken out on the 25th of the month for the following month. With our monthly billing, please know you are still required to commit to the full three month session. However, if you choose to pay for the full session at the beginning of that session, you may. Please keep in mind there are no credits or refunds. Sessions are continuous enrollment, which means you do not have to re-sign up for each session, you will automatically be enrolled for the next session. If you wish to withdrawal for the next session, a withdrawal form must be filled out by the 20th of the last month of your session in order to stop billing.


ALL CLASSES BELOW START IN SEPTEMBER 2018
