Dancers that choose to participate in the recital pay $75/costume, which includes steaming and a garment bag. Tights and shoes are not included. There is a fee for recital tickets of $15/ticket.
Will my dancer perform in a recital?
A: Yes! All of our September-June classes will have the option to perform at our end of year Recital. Adult dancers will be given the option, as well!
Is this a month-to-month commitment?
A: No. We hope that dancers will continue their dance training throughout the season, but if you need to withdraw, please let us know before the start of the next month. Tuition is $50 for one class a month (that meets weekly).
What is your makeup policy?
A: During the winter, we are bound to experience some inclement weather. We will assess the weather and will determine what is safest for our staff and students. In the case of a snow day, we will post on each of the studio’s social media sites, as well as all of the local news stations. Zoom classes or in-person Makeup days will be made available for classes that experience 2 or more snow days. If a student has to miss a class, they are welcome to come to any class below or at the same level as the one they have missed. Please contact the studio to schedule.
