About Our Dress Code
Students are required to wear dance attire for all classes. This is important for teaching purposes in order to see body lines and body placement. Hair should be pulled back, completely out of the students face. No street shoes are allowed in the dance studio. Each class has specific requirements. Please click here to read about our dress code and purchase dancewear.
We ask that parents wait until November 2021 to request a make-up class. Once we open make-up classes, please do everything you can to limit absences. We prefer for classes to stay in their specific pods and limit any cross "contamination" in the studio. If absolutely necessary, you can call to schedule a make-up class once they are open.
Note: We only allow 4 make-ups per school year term (season). Make-up classes can only be scheduled in the same age group and general level of your child. Only one make-up is allowed to be scheduled for each class.
Our lobby is currently semi-closed to ensure the safest environment possible for our dancers. However, we know how important it is for you to be involved in your child's dance progress. We ask that no more than 5 adults enter the lobby at a time. If you'd like to come peek in on class through our glass doors or window, please feel free to do so. Please be cognizant of other parents and busier class times and exit the lobby if it fills with dancers.
We appreciate you helping us keep a safe environment for our dancers!
We're working hard to keep your kids healthy. Watch this super entertaining video to learn all the steps we are taking to keep our community safe.
A few steps we're taking:
- Our lobby will be semi-closed until further notice. Parents will wait outside during class. We will make an exception for our youngest dancers 2-4 year olds joining us for the first time!
- When dancers arrive, they will wait for their teacher to call them inside.
- Masks will be worn by all dancers and staff.
- Dancers must be dressed in dance attire when they arrive. Changing and dressing will not be allowed in bathrooms.
- We encourage dancers to use hand sanitizer as they enter the lobby.
- Class sizes are limited to ensure proper distancing inside the studio.
- Our professional cleaning team will follow enhanced cleaning protocols.
This video was created at the height of COVID. We continue to adjust based on the state and county requirements and our dance families' comfort level.

Parents are not allowed inside the dance studio. This is important so that our youngest dancers can work towards becoming more independent of mom and dad. It also helps our dancers stay focused on the teacher and learn as much as possible. Studio 2, 3, and 4 have a small viewing window for parents to peek into class without distracting the dancers. Each spring, we open the studio to family. Check out our studio calendar for the next Parent Observation Day.
We know your time is valuable. You do not have to wait in the lobby during the dancer’s class. We have your contact information should we need it. Please make sure to drop-off and pick-up your child on time. If your child is not able to use the bathroom by themselves, you should stay for their class time just in case they need to "go".
We conveniently break tuition payments up into monthly payments. The first month’s payment is due during registration. Our summer classes and camps are paid in full on registration. Click here for more information on our tuition policies and expected fees.
Please visit our online store to learn more about our dress code. However, the short answer is a leotard, dance tights, and the correct dance shoes for the specific style the dancer is enrolled. Click here to read more about our dress code and purchase dancewear.
Missed classes (school year term) can be made up anytime before May 1st in an age-appropriate class – even if it’s a different style than what the dancer is currently enrolled in. All makeup classes must be scheduled through the front office. A maximum of 4 makeup classes are allowed during our school year term. A maximum of 1 makeup class is allowed during our summer term.
Our VIP Performance Package inclusions are covered in depth on our Tuition and Fees page. Most recital costs are included in your monthly tuition. However, costume fees and recital tickets are paid for separately. We make it as easy as possible for you to budget every month!
Yes, we have a yearly $49 registration fee per dancer. However, we have a VIP family week each spring where we waive the yearly registration fee for current families.
Our school year term (mid-August through mid-June) classes are broken into equal monthly payments. Payments are made on the 1st of every month September-May and 50% payments for the first and last month (August and June). Tuition varies depending on the length of your child’s class and how many classes your child is registered for. Generally speaking, a 60-minute class or less is $120 per month. Performance Fees are included in your monthly tuition.
Tuition is prorated automatically based on your registration date. All multi-class and sibling discounts are automatically calculated during the registration process.
Often times, yes, we are open. We do close on Memorial Day weekend, MoCo Spring Break / Easter, Independence Day weekend, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving, and winter break which includes Christmas and New Years. For a complete list of holidays and closing, please view our studio calendar.
Our studio usually follows the Montgomery County Public School inclement weather closing policy. We do our best to update parents via e-mail, text and on Facebook if we close for any reason. Most notifications go out around 12-1 pm.
We build in one snow day (or inclement weather) for each class every year.
- Snow Day 1 - Closed (no make-up needed)
- Snow Day 2 - Students are invited to make-up the missed class(es) in another similar age and level
- Snow Day 3 - We will schedule a make-up class day (usually Saturdays or Sundays)
Yes, we like to be as upfront as possible so you can budget accordingly. The fees you should expect for a year of dance are as follows: tuition, costumes, dance-wear, and performance tickets. For a more detailed look at costs to expect, please visit our tuition and fees page.
Yes, we offer both! Each class is discounted per dancer as follows: First class – full price; Second class – 30% off; Third class – 40% off; Fourth class – 50% off; Fifth class – 60% off.
