Welcome to Woodbury Dance Center! Whether you are a new or returning student, we are very excited to have you with us this year. We look forward to a fun-filled and exciting dance season.

Our monthly newsletter will be sent via email and posted on our website each month to notify parents of upcoming events and studio information. Please read newsletters each month. One of our goals at WDC is to keep everyone informed as much as possible, read through our monthly newsletter to stay up to date of studio information.

If you do not have access to the internet and need a copy, please ask at the front desk.

October Dance Camps
We have added some one-day dance camps for ages 3 to 5 to our schedule in October. Please see details and register for camp using the link below.

Lobby Policies and Procedures

We have recently made some changes to our lobby policies and procedures. Tots/Preschool/Kindergarten dancers may have one parent remain in the lobby as needed. We ask that parents of older dancers wait in their vehicle or drop off and return to pick up their dancer at the end of their class.

You can view all lobby policies and procedures HERE.
Preschool and Kindergarten classes will celebrate birthdays each month in class. Dancers with a birthday during that month will be celebrated with a special birthday song, as well as a Color Sheet and WDC Birthday Sticker to take home. Summer birthdays will be celebrated during their half birthday month. We look forward to celebrating your dancer!!
As a reminder, all accounts will be required to have a credit card on file and be signed up for automatic monthly payments for tuition. You will still have the option to pay at the front desk with cash, check or a different card if the payment is received before monthly tuition payments are processed automatically on the 3rd of each month. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Ballet Shoes
As a reminder, ballet shoe strings should be cut short and tucked into the shoe. They should not be tied in a bow. Please trim your shoe strings to about 2 inches long so they can easily be tucked in. Thank you!

Label, label, label
Please label all of your child’s dance shoes and dance wear.

Dance Class
Halloween Parties

Students are invited to wear a Halloween costume to their class between Monday, October 25th through Saturday, October 30th

Please make sure that the costume does not restrict movement so that students can still participate in dance class.
At this time, dancers will not be allowed to pass out treats to their classmates in celebration of birthdays or holidays. Thank you for your understanding with this change in policies due to our new safety guidelines.

As a friendly reminder, please be aware of where you are parking around the studio. On the south side of the building, other businesses have spots close to their entrances reserved – no parking will be allowed in these spots for WDC families (green/red signs are posted). Also, on the north side of the building, please do not park in front of the garage doors. We understand parking can be tricky on some evenings and we very much appreciate your cooperation and understanding. You can also park on the street that you turn onto, as you turn off of Rivertown Drive, if the parking lot is full.
Also, please view the graphic and read the important parking information about our drop-off/pick up spot and the flow of traffic in our parking lot. Thank you!


* You will not be allowed to drop off or pick up dancers in front of the doors.

* When picking up you will not be able to wait at that spot if your dancer is not there and ready to be picked up. Please plan to circle the building again or find a parking spot and wait until they are ready to come out to the car.

Please help keep our dancers safe and our parking lot flowing by following this parking plan. Thank you!
