DEVELOPMENT PAGE: Children’s Classes

Summer Session runs for 12 weeks between June 5 – Aug 27 and registration is now open!

We need to have a minimum number of students enrolled in any particular class in order for it to continue beyond the first meeting. If minimum enrollment in the full series has not been met before the second class, the class will be removed from the schedule.

Due to space restrictions, single class purchases will not be allowed the first week for in-person classes that usually fill to capacity. This prioritizes registration to students who wish to attend the entire series. Drop-in purchases will be allowed after week #1, if space allows. Thank you for your kind understanding as we tweak our policies in order to support our financial sustainability during these challenging times.

Aside from our parent/child class, our children’s classes are designed for children to dance independently. Parents may wait in the lobby and observe class through the window (you are also welcome to run errands and return at the end of class). If your child has a strong need for you to be present in the room during class, please reach out to us before attending so we can see how best to accommodate this need

Make-ups for missed classes may be taken during the same session but may not be carried over to the next session.
