FAQs

How do I know which class to enroll my child in?

Currently our dancers are placed in classes based on their age.  If the scheduled class for your dancer’s age group does not work for your family, the dancer is always able to dance in a younger age level class. Teen Tap and Ballet Pointe are by invitation only.

 

What is the earliest age I can enroll my dancer?

Our Shooting Stars Program is for dancers ages 2-5 years old.  It is broken down into two groups, 2-3 year olds and 4-5 year olds.  These classes offer a combination of Ballet, Tap and Tumbling.

 

How long is the session?

Our 2021-2022 Session is from August 2021 through May 2022. During the summer months, we offer camps, workshops and a modified short session.
