Q: When do Fall classes begin and end?

A: Fall classes begin the day after Labor Day each year in September and end at the beginning of June. Specific start/end dates can be found on our Calendar


Q: Do parents stay at the studio during their children’s Recreational/Prep Team classes?

A: For students 6 & under, it is recommended that parents stay in our waiting room while their children are in class. For students ages 7 & up, drop off/pick up is recommended due to limited space in our waiting area. 

Q: Can parents go inside the dance rooms?

A: Parents may not go into the dance rooms unless it is an emergency situation. Parents who would like to watch their children in their Rec/Prep classes or Private Lessons may do so from the TV Monitors in our waiting area.


Q: What clothing should dancers wear to class?

A: There is not a mandatory dress code for dance classes at the Rec/Prep level. Just make sure to wear athletic-type clothing that is tight-fitting and has stretchy material. Clothing such as leotards, leggings, shorts, t-shirts, and tank tops are acceptable. No jeans or baggy clothing, please. For more help on dance clothing, read through our What To Wear page.
