We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! 


For a chance to be featured on SMSD's website or social media this year, please send pictures of your dancer & their class to misskaseySMSD@gmail.com!
  • All dancers are expected to be on time to class and dressed in the appropriate attire, with the correct dance shoes. Please refer to the brochure or the website to be sure your dancer is outfitted in the correct apparel. Our staff at The Dancer's Den would be more than happy to help you with this and you will receive a 10% discount on your purchase during September! 
  • Hair should be up and out of the dancer's face for the entirety of class.
  • Dancers should never come to or leave the studio without a cover-up on over their leotard & tights! Pick up one of the super cute tees or tanks at The Dancer's Den to keep your dancer covered this year. 
  • Dance shoes are only meant to be worn in the studio and should not be worn outside. Please change into the correct shoes in the lobby once you arrive, but prior to your dancer entering the classroom. Also, be sure that your dancer has their "going home shoes," with them when they go into the studio for class. 
  • Parents/guardians should not enter the studio with their dancer, instead please encourage them to go in on their own. 
  • Dancers of every age should bring their dance bag with them into the studio rather than leaving it with a parent or in the lobby. 
  • Do not allow your dancer to enter the studio until the teacher has opened the door and is ready for their students to come in. 
  • No food or drink is allowed in the studio besides water. 
  • Last but not least, all dancers should use the bathroom prior to their class beginning. 
Happening This Week...

 Friends should be close to the same age and must have a New Student Inquiry Form filled out prior to taking part in the class. If friends don't have dance clothes to wear, they are welcome to wear play clothes.
