July News

Thank you all for another successful year of classes and year-end production! The performances were superb and the children were true stars! Bring-a-friend week and awards week were joyful, too. Definitely a season we'll be talking about well into the future!

We hope you're enjoying a relaxing and family-filled introduction to Summer Break. Summer flies by quickly - so grab on and cherish your time together at the park, at the pool or on your family vacations. School - and weekly dance classes - will be back in session before you know it.

We want to help make that back-to-school transition a little easier for you. Since many of our classes fill to capacity, this year we're offering our current students an early-registration option. Families can now register online to hold their spot in class next season. There is no up-front fee for this service. Your reserved spot will be confirmed with your first tuition payment, which will be auto-charged on August 1. This is a terrific way to get into the class(es) of your choice without an early financial commitment.

And if you're wondering which class(es) are the best fit for your child(ren), don't fret. A personal class recommendation will be sent via email over the next few days to all of our current families. Look for it in your inbox and contact Alyssa with any questions you may have.

Enjoy the holiday weekend and the rest of your summer!
