HOW TO REGISTER
Welcome New Families and Dancers
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our potential new family members. This year will look a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please know the safety and well being of our dancers and families are reflected in our policies and operating procedures. Due to safety guidelines our class sizes are limited and we unfortunately cannot guarantee we will have availability in all classes. We do grant priority enrollment to our returning families before opening up to new family registrations. We will do our best to accommodate new families and when necessary add dancers to class waitlists. Below you will find detailed information on our registration procedures.
