Dancers in regular classes will not be required to travel. Competitive dancers will travel to competition and workshops.
What does my child need for class?
All dancers need black tap shoes for class. Dancers who are studying jazz, or ballet will also need black jazz or ballet slippers. Dancers will not be permitted to dance in socks for safety reasons. Dancers should wear comfortable clothing to class, no jeans are permitted as they restrict movement.
Long hair should be worn up and off the face, buns are encouraged.

Most classes perform 3 routines in the recital. Technique / Ballet add on classes typically perform one routine, as do specialty classes.
Can my dancer perform more?
Yes! We often are invited to perform at fairs, festivals and charitable events in local communities. Dancers also have the chance to perform in their costumes for friends in family at our Christmas open house. (last class before Christmas break).
How can I encourage my dancer to practice at home?
A music list will be placed on the web-site so you can download your dancers music. As well, when possible teachers will place videos on Facebook of your child's dance. ( we choose to use facebook so that only you and the other parents in your child's class can view videos of them).
