Inclement Weather


In the event of inclement weather, there will be a posting on the WFMZ stormcenter, as well as a post on our website. Please check 1 hour prior to your scheduled class time. More than 1 class missed due to inclement weather will result in a make-up in the spring.

Our annual dance recital will be held in June. Costumes will be ordered in the fall and will range from $50-$70 per costume. A costume deposit of $20 per costume will be due October 15, 2017.  A costume balance will be sent home in early December. Those who do not pay for the costume will not have one ordered. *There will be a picture day at the studio in the spring. Dates TBD.
