Do parents stay and watch class?
Parents! Go shopping, go make dinner, have time for yourself! Our trusting professional staff have a complete class ready for your child to enjoy. We encourage you to watch from the window, but if parents would like to step out for a moment that is fine too. Our front desk will contact you if they need you back a little earlier. If your child isn’t potty trained we that you stay throughout the entire class just in case they need your help.
My child has tried the class once and doesn’t like it?
If you’re at the point of trying to decide if dance is right for your young dancer we suggest a couple of things. First, give your dancer a month to really see if he/she likes dance. You’ll be able to determine if that class/teacher/style is congruent with his/her appetite for learning. Second, if you find that the current class is not for your child, please visit or call our front desk, and you can try any other class, FOR FREE, until we find the right one for you!
