    Class Registration


    Due to changes in classes, teachers, and policies, we ask that all dancers register at the studio. Please DO NOT register online as you will miss a lot of new information and options. If you can not attend the first two registration days, more will be held throughout August and early September. The other register days, schedule of classes, and previous student placement will be released soon.

    To ensure you or your child is in the correct class for his or her age and skill, Susan will review registrations and may recommend the most appropriate class.
