Can I try a class for free?

We’d love for you to come and try a class with our studio! As long as there is space available we can schedule a trial class. Please visit our website or free app to fill out your Try a Class form.

 

Can I withdraw from a class?

We understand that schedules and interests can change. We encourage you to check out our schedule and try a different day/time or different style or teacher! To avoid being charged the monthly tuition we must receive the Withdrawal Form (found on our website and free app) by the 15th of the month. Withdrawals will not be accepted after February 1, 2020.

 

Why is the age cut off set on Sept. 1st, 2019?

Like the school system we have learned that dancers learn the best when they are grouped together with students at their same age level. It is also important (especially for our younger classes) that the class have a small age range. We have also learned that this helps all of our dancers have a successful recital. 

 

Is there a dress code?

Yes. Students are required to purchase their tights and shoes from DbD Studios. Leotards and more are available for purchase as well. Gently used dance shoes, leotards, and accessories are available for a discounted price on our DbD Resell Page. More details for the required dress code and dance wear we offer for purchase can be found on our website, free app, and Facebook page.

 

Is there a recital?

YES! Students are encouraged to perform but not required. More details can be found on our website and free app.

*Dance with Me classes do not perform in the recital.

 

Is there a costume fee?

Yes.  Twos in Tutus, Dance 101, and Combo classes are $62/class and Levels 1-5 are $72/class. The costume fee includes the costume in a garment bag, large alterations/exchanges, and tights.
