Band App
The Band App will be used again this year to get music and videos out to our students to help with at home practice. We will also use this app to communicate with dancers and parents regarding class material.

Please download the app and go to the link below. From there you can join the correct group for your child's class(es). Classes will be grouped together by Recital Routines.

*Please note that video content will not be posted any sooner than February.

Attendance Reminders
Please help us by making sure your dancer is regularly attending their dance classes. All classes are starting their recital routines. Good attendance will:

  • Help your dancer be more confident with their dances.
  • Keep your dancer up-to-date on new steps and avoid frustration of trying to get caught up on what they missed during their absence.
  • Help the teachers keep classes moving ahead with choreography from week to week.
  • Help the teachers with formation work in class.
  • Make-up classes are available for most classes. Please call or check at the Front desk for class times.

Special Thanks
Thank you to all that donated a toy at WDC this holiday season!

A BIG load of toys was dropped off at the 'Toys for Tots' Drive. We love this holiday tradition that, because of so many generous WDC families, we have done for the past 20+ years!
Brrrrr.....Winter is here!! 
Classes canceled due to extreme weather will be communicated to our dance families as follows - email, WDC website, Facebook Page and Instagram posts, as well as the studio voicemail system. 

NEW THIS YEAR- texts will be sent out through our SMS system. Be sure that your contact information is up to date in your account so that you receive these alert texts.

Please be sure to check in if you are unsure whether or not classes will be held.

For morning class cancellations, we generally follow South Washington School closures. Afternoon/evening class cancellations are made in the afternoon based on travel conditions and weather forecasts. If you do not feel safe driving to the studio, you are always welcome to have your dancer attend a make-up class.

Each class has two snow days built into our yearly schedule. If class has to be canceled more than twice on any given day, a make up date will be scheduled.
