OPEN WEEK

This is the exploratory week where we open all classes to all of our students to try as many classes that they are not currently enrolled for so they can discover what other styles they might be interested in enrolling for next season starting in September.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

  1. Look over the OPEN WEEK schedule

  2. CHOOSE which class or classes your dancer would like to try (no maximum, essentially your child can try a class everyday of the week!)

  3. Remember that the classes should be in their age category (MINI, JR, SR) If your child is in between categories, they can try the next level category.
