Classroom Policy

We ask that parents do not come into the classrooms when classes are in session.  It is distracting to the other dancers and we ask that you view class through the viewing windows only.  Please have your dancer come into class with his/her tap shoes on first.


Dancers are asked to arrive at least 5 minutes earlier than the start of their class time.  This will allow them to get dressed or use the restroom, if needed, and enter the classroom on time. 

Bathroom: Parents of children under 8, please take your child to the rest room prior to class to avoid disruptions.

Missed Classes

Missed classes can be made up whenever possible.  You can come to another class of the same age & level to make-up a missed class (if available).  We’d be happy to assist you in finding an appropriate class to attend.  There are NO refunds for missed classes. 

Cancelled Classes – Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather or circumstances beyond our control and a studio closing is required, we will leave a message on the studio voicemail, send an email (if possible) and post this notification on Facebook/Instagram.  There are no refunds or makeup classes for studio closing due to weather conditions and/or circumstances beyond our control. 

Sick Policy

If your child has vomited, had diarrhea or a fever within the last 24 hours, we ask that you please keep them home from dance.  Thanks for your help keeping all of our dancers healthy!

Recital/ Costumes

Our recital will be held at the Chanhassen High School Auditorium.  Our recitals are professionally staged and your child's participation is highly recommended.

Practice music

All recreational dancers will receive a downloadable version of their recital music.


At the end of the season, our dancers will receive a medal and certificate of achievement.  Trophies will be awarded to dancers who have danced at our studio 5, 10 and 15 years.
