Youth DanceDANCING DARLINGS
SCHOOL YEAR DANCE PROGRAM

Our 26-week youth dance program offers an entire school year of instruction in the fine art of dance. First semester emphasis is on rhythmic training, coordination, grace and posture for the young student at the barre. Second semester emphasis is on dance routines in preparation for the spring recital. The 26-week program is broken down into two, 13-week semesters: first semester, September – December, and second semester, January - April. Specific class dates are available and distributed the first day of class. The Spring Dance Rehearsal and Recital is in April at a location to be determined. Each student should wear a black leotard (no skirts please), pink tights, pink ballet shoes and black tap shoes. The program cost includes the costume fee for the spring dance recital. All students must be toilet-trained in order to participate.

Refund policy for Dance Classes: Due to the volume of students and skill level of the classes, make up classes are not available if a child misses their scheduled class. If a student drops within the month of September, a pro-rated refund is available. If your student drops within October, a 50% refund is available. Students dropping after November 1 will not receive a refund, but will receive the costume ordered for the recital. For information on payment options available, please call Jayne at 314.835.6155.
