When you arrive for your class please check in at the front on the iPad and help your dancer to get settled before class and find a cubby for their things. Please make sure all shoes and water bottles are labeled.


Parents/Caregivers: Please plan to enter the building no more than 10 minutes prior to the beginning and end of class time when dropping off and picking up your dancer. You are always welcome to use our restroom, drop off snacks/water for your dancer, etc.! Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
