Our shoe sale will take place during registration on Wednesday August 31st. We will have both new and used shoes for sale. If you have shoes to donate, please tie them together and give them to one of the registration volunteers. If you would like to purchase a pair of used shoes, we ask for a $5 donation for each pair of shoes. New shoes will be available to try on at registration and orders will be available for pick-up the first day of class.

Checks for new shoes need to be made payable to Marilyn Schunzel. You may purchase shoes from wherever you prefer, however for the recital we require pink ballet slippers, black tap shoes, and tan jazz shoes.

Shoe sale will only be at registration.

The recital date has not yet been finalized. We will provide this information to you as soon as we have it. It is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of May 20/21, 2016 but this is not yet confirmed.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put your child’s name in all dance shoes, jackets, dance clothing, dance bags, etc. It’s much easier to return items if they are left behind at dance if they are labeled. If your dancer picked up something extra from the last recital, please bring it with you so we can attempt to return it to the rightful owner. We will hold items from last year’s Lost & Found and the recital for one month before we donate everything.

Dance classes will begin on Saturday, September 10, 2016. All dancers are required to check in before class. Class fees are $187 per class, per school year. Monthly payments will be accepted. Payment is due even if class is missed. Please refer to the Payment section below for a list of the class dates and monthly payment amounts.

Please let us know when your dancer is going to be absent. Please note that you are responsible for the entire year of tuition regardless of when you register.
