Two terms

The dance year runs from Mid September to our year end show in May or early June. The year is divided into 2 terms, 1st term begins Mid-September and 2nd term begins Mid-January.

At registration payment for the full year may be made, or payment  for 1st term only with a postdated cheque or credit card for 2nd term on file. (Monthly payment arrangements may be made for 2 or more classes) There is a registration fee of $20.00/student for each year. There are no refunds once classes have begun with the exception of KinderSteps where there is more flexibility due to the young age of the dancers. Almost every class requires a costume for the year end recital, the fee for the costumes is posted in January or February.

Year End Recital         

Recital handbook available after April 1.

This is an exciting time for the dancers. They begin choreography for the year end show in February of each year, costumes are ordered, rehearsal is held, tickets are sold for the big event… The dancers are excited to show their family and friends what they have learned throughout the year… information on our year end show will be on the website as well as posted on our studio dance boards and e-mailed to families.
