Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you offer family discounts?

A: Not unless special circumastances arise and parents will be invited by the instructor to come into class. All instructors are CPR/First Aid Certified! We treat your children as our own! We will be adding video camera's and a monitor in the front waiting area so parents may observe if they wish at some point during the first session!
Q: May I speak with an instructor after my childs class?
A: Our instructors are pretty busy during class hours. If you have a question that the office can not answer please set up an appointment to speak with your childs instructor at another time. Please DO NOT enter the classroom at the beginning or end of your childs class as this can disrupt class time and other students training hours.
Q:I'm unsure of what class level I should enroll my child in. What do I do?
A: Contact the office! If they are not placed correctly, we will make sure they get moved the first week of class! All students will be evaluated the first week of class to make sure they are in the correct level.
Q: Do you hold a dance recital at the end of the year?
A: No. Our dance classes are technique based, and though students may showcase skills at our "End of Session Showcase", a yearly recital is not held. Musical Theatre,Acting, A Cappella, and creative and intro level classes will have a small showcase at the end of each semester for parents Either during your childs class time or at an outside venue. Our Spring Semester will end with a "Musical Review" that will incorporate Singing, Dancing, Acting, and maybe some instruments! You must be enrolled in group classes prior to the spring session to be eligible for the "Musical Review". Those not enrolled are invited to help out with crew!

A: Please wear clothing that you are comfortable moving in to all classes. Dance classes have specific attire and dance shoes. If you are not wearing proper attire you may be asked to observe class. Please contact the office for more information on attire.
