My child is 9 years old, and this will be their first year in class. Will they be in a “beginner” class with much younger students?

No, they will be enrolled in a class with students in their own age group. Most of our classes have both new and current students.  More than likely, they will meet another student in their class who is also a beginner. Our upper level dance and gymnastics classes are grouped by skill.

Do students perform at the end of the year?


Dancers: We have two (low pressure) performances each year. In March/April we try to take the dance classes to the local retirement homes. In May we have our dance recitals. The Dance Recitals are “real” shows that take place in a big theatre with lighting, sound, costuming and staging.

Gymnasts: We have a Gymnastics Showcase or Upper Level Open House the last week of April. For more information on location, date & times for the performances click  here.

Can I watch my student during class?


Two of our studios and our gym have a waiting-room area in which parents can watch from during class.

Studio 3 has a closed circuit TV in the waiting area.

We host a “Parent Visit Day” the first week of February.

Our Gymnastics classes are divided into levels. Our introductory levels start at 1 Star and go to 3 Star. Then our classes are listed Levels 1-4 depending on experience. We also offer Ninja Gym now! Click  here for more details on gymnastics levels.

What should my child wear to class?

Proper class attire is required in order to participate in class.

Please see our  CLASS ATTIRE page for more details.

When will my child begin Ballet Pointe training?

Young dancers are always enthusiastic about beginning dancing en Pointe too soon. If a child has had good ballet training they will begin Pointe work around the age of 11 or 12. If care is not taken, lifelong disabilities can result from starting Pointe before supple bodies are strong enough and muscles are properly developed.

Why is Ballet so important to dancers?

Ballet is the foundation of all other dance forms. By learning the correct terminology, each dance movement will be easier to execute. Dancers are only made through hours of practicing technique to perfect control of every part of the mind and body.

When is tuition due?

Tuition is due before the 10th of each month, unless you have arranged otherwise. A $10 late fee will be added to accounts that have a balance due on the 11th of the month. We accept cash, check or credit card for tuition payments. Tuition is charged automatically on the first of each month September through May for all registered students, regardless of vacation or absence. We do not prorate if you are absent or away on vacation. No adjustments, credits or transfers will be made for missed lessons. Make-up classes are available.

How many sessions do you offer?


We have a September-May session and a June/July session. We also offer summer camps and clinics.  Summer classes .

I tried to get my child into a class on a specific time/day, but the class was already full. What are my options?

Sometimes certain classes or times fill up faster than others. When a class is full, you have the option to join the Wait List for that class. Sometimes people move around and a spot opens up. In the meantime, it’s best to select another class until that class may open up.

When can a student move up to the next level?

Teachers and Coaches will keep a close eye on each student’s progress to ensure they’re placed in the appropriate grade for their age/skill level. Gymnasts test in November and March and our coaches will move them to the next level when they have passed off their current skills.

Where do we purchase our class attire and dance shoes?

We have a retail store on the premises, selling shoes (ballet, tap, jazz, ballroom), leotards, skirts, tights, tank tops and shirts, jazz shorts, tights, bags and more.  We also offer gymnastics wear.
