September 2023 Newsletter
Welcome to AAD for our 2023-24 dance season. We are looking forward to seeing all our dancers this year. Please read through this entire email as it contains useful information you will need to get started this dance season. Much of the information in this letter is contained on our website which is: www.americanacademyofdance.com.
All classes have begun!
We will close on Labor Day, September 5th.
We have had a great respose to registration this year! This means our parking lot and lobbies will be very full.
To help with crowd control, please note that you are welcome to drop your child off for class, and pick them up after.
Please be mindful and drive slowly in all parking lots. Keep an eye out for children walking to and from the studio.
We have permission for you to park at Border States after 4:30pm and The Leaning Center after 6:00pm.
Please check our Dress Code in our Classes section on our website. Find specifics for the class or classes your dancer is taking. Beginning Monday August 28th, our dance boutique open during the following hours:
The boutique is located at our satellite studio at 13 Industrial Park Dr Ste 200
(Across the street from Dos Margaritas)
**All Company classes, please wait for recommendations from your teacher before purchasing your shoes**
Main Studio Office Hours

Frequently we find it necessary to make adjustments in our dance schedule after the initial enrollment period. We are still tweaking our schedule. Please bear with us as we try to accommodate everyone.
If you have not heard from AAD, then all is well with your schedule and you should come at your original time.
Thank you for your understanding if adjustments have been made to your schedule.
Please ensure that the email and phone number we have on file for you are both correct! We communicate important info to you via email on a very regular basis so make sure your info is correct!
*We also have the option to send info to you via text messaging! This will mostly be used to communicate important last-minute info (such as weather-related closings), and we will not overwhelm your phone with texts. The texts will go to the main number listed on your account so please make sure that is a cell phone number! If you have opted out of texting on your account, we cannot guarantee that you will receive all pertinent information!
Newsletters are sent out the first week of each month. Please check your spam/trash folder if you do not receive one in your regular email. Also, these are posted on our website in the News section. Please read our AAD General information and Policies. You may click the link, or find it in the Info (FAQ) section on our website.
Make sure that you have access to your parent portal and are familiar with logging in and monitoring your account.
This is where you can view your account, make payments, and update your personal and financial information.
As most of you know, we auto-draft monthly tuition payments on the 15th of most months (with the exception of October and May, which will be auto-drafted on the 16th and 8th, respectively). We will NOT be emailing statements each month! Monthly tuition charges will be posted to accounts during the first week of each month, and you may login to your Parent Portal to check your balance at any time. Click HERE to access the Parent Portal login page.
All accounts are required to keep a credit card on file. You are welcome to pay via check or cash but you MUST submit it to the main office NO LATER THAN THE 14TH OF EACH MONTH! If we have not received payment by then we will charge the card on file. Any late payments or declined cards will subject the account to a $15 late fee!
If you have any questions regarding our payment schedule or policies please click above to view our General Information Sheet!
