Parent Observation:
Parents are invited to come in and watch the LAST 15 minutes of class the last class of the month. Please remember this is "Parent" watch day. Please do not invite friends and family members to attend this is what our performances are for. We also know that some of the dancers have younger siblings if they need to attend we ask that they sit on your lap during the observation. Please keep in mind dancer generally do better if you let them know ahead of time that they are not to come over to you while in observation!

Pick Up and Drop Off:
When dropping off or picking up the parking lot can become very crazy. For the safety of the dancers please enter the east side of the parking lot, circle the building and drop off on the west side, continue to the west entrance to exit the parking lot. If you are dropping off at the back studios the same procedure will be followed. If you are parking please use east side as an entrance.

*DO NOT PARK ON THE CURB LOCATED DIRECTLY BEHIND THE PARKING STALLS OR IN FRONT OF THE GARAGES

Costumes:
We will begin measuring for costumes Sept. 10th- 14th. Costumes will be ordered at the end of the month to ensure they are here for our first performance. Costumes are ordered in general sizing small, medium, large, and x-large. We do our very best to make sure your dancer has the best fit. Sometimes you may have to make small alterations. Costumes are not custom made for your dancers.

Classroom Attire:
*Ballet- Any color leotard and tights. Skirts are optional.
*Jazz/Ballet- Any color Leotard, fitted dance shorts, or fitted dance top. Optional tights or skirts.
*Jazz/Tumbling- Any color Leotard, fitted dance shorts, or fitted dance top. No attached skirts on leotards. If your dancer wears tights we ask that they are footless for this class.
*Jazz- Any color Leotard, fitted dance shorts, or fitted dance top. Tights are optional.
*Hip Hop: Athletic shorts or pants, loose fitted top. NO jeans Please.
*Tumbling- fitted dance shorts, fitted tops, or tumbling biketard

Class Sizes/Cancelled Classes:
There have been a few questions on class sizes. We determine them based off of age. We generally allow anywhere from 10-12 dancers per class. Where class sizes that are larger and the dancers are younger we try and bring in a student assistant to help with the class. We will allow dancers to enroll in classes until the end of September unless a class is full. With classes that have less than 5 dancers we will need to close the class and find an alternative class for your dancer. This will be determined at the end of September and parents will be notified at that time.

September Referral Program:
The greatest compliment we can receive is when you refer a friend to our studio. During the month of September for every dancer that you refer you will receive a $10.00 tuition credit toward your next month’s tuition.

Winter Performance-
Our Winter performance is scheduled for Tuesday, December 18th at 6:30pm at Taylorsville High School.
This performance is for our entire studio. Please mark it on your calendars today!

Fitness Classes:
We also have added a fun new “High Fitness” class every Tuesday night from 8:15-9:15pm. What is HIGH FITNESS??? HIGH Fitness is a hardcore, fun fitness class that incorporates aerobic interval training with music you love and intense easy to follow fitness choreography. It combines FUN (pop songs of old and new that everyone knows and loves) with INTENSITY (interval, plyometrics and cardio) with CONSISTENCY (each song has specific simple moves taught the same by all instructors). Together they make a recipe for success, repeat participation and results! HIGH Fitness produces a high caloric burn and full-body toning through its carefully formulated choreography that alternates between intense cardio peaks and toning tracks. Get Addicted to being fit! The first class is free!!!  Class prices are $5.00 per class or punch cards are available for $20.00 for five punches.
