Frequently Asked Questions

What should I/my student wear for dance class?

We recommend wearing something that allows you to move freely and comfortably but is not too baggy.  Some suggestions are athletic wear, leggings, t-shirt, or leotards. Street shoes are not allowed on the dance floor unless a medical or personal need has been communicated to us beforehand.

 

Footwear - students can dance in bare feet or wear jazz shoes, foot undies, or socks, but be aware the instructor may ask you to remove socks for some exercises in which socks may cause slipping. 

Hair - please have your hair up and out of your face (ponytails and braids work great).

What Level Class should I register for?

For questions about which class level you or your student is best suited for, please contact us.

Please note: We reserve the right to change class arrangements depending on enrollment numbers and to ensure the safety of all participants.

What is the difference between monthly and full session payments?

We offer two payment options – either monthly or full session. Full session payments are made before classes start, whereas monthly payments are posted and due the first week of each month during the class session. You can select which schedule you prefer during your registration and you can also change your preference online through the Customer Portal. If you do not specify, your tuition will default to being posted monthly.

Do you do automatic payments?

Yes! If you would like your account to be charged automatically, please enter your card information when you register.
