Dance Program Updates
Dance is more fun with a friend! Students in Recital Dance classes that have space available are invited to bring one friend to class. Whether your friend has never danced before, used to dance or dances in a different class, they are invited to join your class free of charge (friends should be of similar age). If your friend decides to register for a Recital Dance class, they will be eligible to join classes that are age-appropriate and that have openings for additional students. Friends must bring the invitation/waiver signed by their parent or guardian in order to attend dance class.
