Holiday Closings

Closed Nov 23-25th for Thanksgiving!

Closed Dec 22-Jan 3rd for Christmas Break (Classes resume Jan 4)


We will finish measuring for recital costumes this month! Please make every effort to have your dancer in class each week, dressed in proper dance attire, so that we can measure for costumes! A reminder: anyone who withdraws AFTER NOVEMBER 15th will still be responsible for payment of the full costume fee. Those who have recently enrolled will have their costume deposits of $35 per costume drafted along with November tuition on November 16th.


We will begin drafting the balance of the costume fees in January. Please be prepared to pay your costume balance at that time!


***If your child will NOT be participating in the recital, please let us know now! Once costumes are ordered parents are responsible for the FULL costume fee, regardless of recital participation.


November tuition will be auto-drafted on November 16th, as well as any late fees that were accrued in October.


It is very important that you keep the card you have on file updated. We will be charging the $15 late fee for late payments, which includes cards that are declined for any reason. If you prefer to pay by cash or check, please do so before the 15th of the month. If your card has been compromised, please let us know and update your card by the 15th of the month as well.



Mark Griffith Photography will photograph our students in their recital costumes from March 3-10th.


A detailed picture schedule will be sent out beforehand. However, if you are aware that your child may have a major conflict (i.e. away on vacation, etc) on one or more of these dates, PLEASE notify us now!! We will make every effort to work around our students' schedules - to the extent that we are able. Please note that once the picture schedule is made, it cannot be changed!!


  • Please pull all the way to the door when dropping off your dancer. We don't want kids walking from the back of the parking lot in the dark.

  • Please ask your children to stay inside the building until they see you pull up to the door.

  • Remember to DRIVE SLOWLY when picking up and dropping off. We want to keep everyone safe.
