It is the responsibility of the parents to be aware of all dance studio activities, such as recitals, opening or closings, and picture days. When public and private schools close due to weather, the studio will also close. Dance classes will resume when school resumes. The studio notices are posted on the website, in our newsletter and in your email. We also post to Facebook! Please notify us if your address, e-mail address, or telephone number has changed.

Reminders & Upcoming Dates
No Parents or Visitors in Dance Class
No Parents or visitors are allowed in the dance classroom. Dancers are more focused and perform better with less people in the room. Dance is also about learning independence. You will see your dancer grow so much in confidence from their dance 
classes. If your child is feeling anxious about being in class without you, you can help by explaining to your child that they can show you what they learned after class.
