Basic Information
For new dancers and their parents there are usually a lot of questions. Here is a list of some of the “basics” of the studio. If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask. (You will find information more specific to costumes and recitals on each of those pages.)

Attendance
The year begins toward the end of August and ends with the recital, which is usually the end of April depending on school events and when Easter is.  Dancers that miss one or fewer classes receive Outstanding Attendance Recognition in the recital program.   You may “make-up” any missed classes at any time throughout the year at your convenience.  Suggested make-up class times are posted at the beginning of the year.  You don’t need to call ahead….just come!

Christmas
We do not have a Christmas performance.

Clothing
Leotards and tights are mandatory for class. Warm-ups may be worn for the first 15 minutes of class.  Please get your dancer’s hair out of their face if they have long hair (pony tails are fine).  Absolutely no gum or jeans in class or street shoes on the dance floor.   Combination class students should have elastic put in their tap shoes to replace the ribbons…see me if you aren’t sure.

Holidays
We do NOT dance on the following holidays:  Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas break (we follow the Clinton schools schedule).  We DO dance during the scheduled Clinton school “Spring Break” and we still have class on the “Monday” holidays such as President’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, etc.
