Our aim is to give our students the best dance education possible through our professional instruction and personal attention.

Do you accept people with disabilities?
We strive to make accommodations for all individuals who desire to dance. Please Contact the studio to discuss how we can help you with your special needs.
When is the recital?
Recital Dates are subject to change based on auditorium availability. Any changes will be communicated promptly. The Spring Recital date is tentatively set for the 1st Saturday in June. See our Recital Page for more up-to-date information.
What is your attendance policy?
Students are expected to attend classes for which they are registered. If a student misses 4 consecutive classes without making formal arrangements with studio instructors and/or administration, his/her space will be forfeited in the class for the next month. Students with excessive absences will not be permitted to perform in our annual recital.
Are parents allowed to stay in class to watch?
“WATCH DAYS” will be the first full week in November and April. This is the lesson parents and visitors are welcome to view in class. Remember, this is your day to see your child’s progress.
Please do not disturb the class by visiting amongst yourselves. Turn the ringer on the phone down. Please keep your little ones seated and quiet. In other lessons, parents are asked to walk their child inside the building and then wait in the waiting room, run a quick errand, or treat themselves to a walk around the block! This enables the dance instructors to keep the attention of the students, as well as helps those who may be a little reluctant to feel more at ease.
