Welcome to Fusion Dance Carroll!
Dance Education is Important!
It is our aim to develop strong bodies with an appreciation of dance and music.
The study of dance can help students to develop a positive self concept, be motivated to be physically fit, manage stress and increase strength, flexibility, coordination, endurance, and agility. Dance provides opportunities for the development of creative capacities, skills of leadership and social interaction, and seeking new friendships.

Studio Policy
No matter what the objective of the students, whether for recreation, education or preparation for a professional career, a foundation of technique is essential for any dance at any level. Accomplishments can be made only if the student attends class regularly. If the student must miss class and wants to make up that time, an alternate class is available. Please ask about these times at the front desk. We must know if your child cannot attend class before the class begins.

Please enjoy this dance year and if there are any questions or problems please call the phone number above. Please check our website www.fusiondance-carroll.com. Newsletters, calendars, events and other information will be uploaded to our website. We will not be handing out any paper newsletters, so please watch your emails for newsletters and updates. Become our friend on Facebook to receive up-to-date information on what is happening at the studio.

Dancers schedules and tuition are now available to view in your parent portal.

Please click HERE to login into your parent portal. Once logged in, please click on the calendar icon on the bottom of the home page and forward to September 6th when classes begin to view your full schedule. Competition students, your groups will start meeting October 3rd.

If you are having trouble viewing any classes in your calendar it may be that you either haven't registered yet or need to finish your registration! Once your registration is complete, we will get your dancer put into classes for the upcoming season.

If you have any schedule conflicts or questions, please email the studio at fusiondancecarrollia@gmail.com.
Auto Pay:
It is required that all our students sign up for auto pay to register for dance with our studio. Auto Pay will be initiated the 10th of each month, and depending on your form of payment, you will see it go through 1-2 business days after it's initiated. Auto pay will be used for all charges, not just tuition, including costumes, competition fees, music fees, etc. If you wish to choose an alternate form of payment, you need to then pay at our front desk BEFORE the 10th of each month. If you do not notify the front desk otherwise, all remaining balances will go through autopay by the 10th.

Christmas Performance:
Tentative! We are currently discussing a Christmas Show. We are looking to put together a show that will be dancing only. In the past we have always collaborated with Serendipity, but now that they are no longer providing services in the Carroll area, we are looking to do this on our own. We have always enjoyed bringing the Christmas Spirit to the Carroll Community with a fun Christmas performance and are looking forward to continuing this tradition! Rehearsals would begin in October and show week would be November 27th-December 3rd. A sign up will be available in the lobby at Open House. Open to dancers ages 3 and up.
