Registration is OPEN for Youth classes and team programs for Fall 2023 - Spring 2024.
Registration is OPEN for Adult 4-week classes in October & November 2023.
There is a $15 registration fee charged annually per student.
(Family max of $30. No registration fees for summer workshops or adult 4-week classes.)
5% discount for half season tuition payment (1st due in October, 2nd in February). Please contact us for this option.
Family discount offered for families with more than one student enrolled in any program: 10% off tuition (of equal or lesser value) for the 2nd and subsequent family member. Not applicable to costume fees.
Discounts cannot be combined.
Tuition will be posted on the 1st of each month, and due on the 10th. A $10 late fee will apply to any payments made after the 10th.
Payments can be made online through the registration system. Auto-pay option is available and highly suggested! Cash & checks will also be accepted in person; please bring in a sealed envelope with your student's name on it.
Monthly payments have been calculated based on the full cost of the entire season being divided into equal installments (so although some months may have more or less classes/rehearsals, tuition amount has been averaged to remain the same).
Tuition & fees are non-refundable and no credits or refunds will be given for missed classes/rehearsals. Written notice of withdrawal from classes/teams must be given 2 weeks in advance.
Our general dress code is as follows:
Wear comfortable clothing that will allow for movement. Ladies can wear leggings, dance/exercise pants, or dance skirts (with shorts or leggings worn underneath), and please choose tops with a higher neckline that will not shift down or open with movement. Gentlemen can wear dance/exercise pants or other pants made with material that has some stretch.
FOR MALES & FEMALES: PLEASE NO JEANS, SHORTS, TANK TOPS, OR LOW NECKLINES. Avoid baggy clothing.
Long hair should be securely pulled back.
Performance teams have specific dress codes and require students to obtain their own dancewear items, such as leotards or Latin pants. Information will be given at team orientation, or please email to inquire.
Appropriate ballroom shoes are required for all programs except the Intro to Ballroom classes and Bronze Team, although still highly suggested for proper movement and learning.
For these programs, if you don’t wish to invest in ballroom shoes yet, jazz shoes will be allowed (tan for females, black for males). Until you have dance shoes, you may bring a pair of lightweight regular sneakers as long as you can easily move in them and they will stay well attached to your feet, and keep the following in mind:
Shoes MUST have a non-marking sole. Many sneakers and tennis shoes leave big streaks on our floor, so please check that they are non-marking before wearing!
Please keep wet and/or dirty shoes off the dance floor. If you do not yet own a pair of dance shoes, we ask that you bring a pair of clean, studio-only shoes that you can change into inside.
Do NOT wear heels that are not specifically designed for ballroom and/or Latin dancing.
Dancing in socks or bare feet will not be allowed (other than warm-up).
NO SANDALS OR STILETTO HEELS.
No food or drink (except water in a closable container) is allowed in the dance room. Food items may be kept and eaten outside. There is no water fountain at the grange, so bring a water bottle!
Please remember to stay home if you are sick or have symptoms of illness or infection that could be contagious (such as runny nose/congestion, persistent cough, fever, diarrhea, vomiting, eye or skin infections, etc.). We are in close contact with each other in ballroom dance and germs can spread very easily. Thank you for helping to keep our students & instructors healthy!!
Students should keep cell phones away in backpacks or dance bags during class time. Water breaks are for drinking water, not checking phones!
Outside of class times, no supervision will be provided for minors. Especially for our elementary age classes, please be prompt in picking up your students.
Parents are welcome to observe classes, but otherwise only enrolled class members in the room please so we can keep distractions to a minimum.
