DANCING DARLINGS SCHOOL YEAR DANCE PROGRAM
Our 24-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 24-week program is broken down into two, 12-week semesters: first semester, September – December, and second semester, January - April. Class dates are available and distributed the first day of class. The dance rehearsal is on Friday, April 17, with the Spring Dance Recital on Saturday, April 18, at The Lodge. 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. Minimum 6/Maximum 12

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.
