NOW ENROLLING FOR
DANCE PARENTS GUIDE
How much do classes cost? Tuition is calculated based on the number of hours your child is enrolled in per week. There is a $30 annual registration fee per family.
FIRST PAYMENT: Your first payment at the time of enrollment will include the $30 registration fee, as well as your first month's tution. This tuition payment may be prorated if you enroll mid-month, or the session begins with a partial month of classes (fall classes begin mid-August). All subsequent tuition payments will be your full tuition amount, charged on the 25th of each month for the upcoming month.
Please visit our TUITION AND FEES page for more information.
Which level should I enroll my child in? We have a minimum age requirement for each class level. However, dance experience is the most important determining factor in level placement. Permission is required to enroll in levels 3, 4 or 5. In general, dancers remain in each level for 2-3 years. You can click on the schedule like (above) to view age recommendations. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about where to place your child.
May I enroll my child mid-month? Tuition will be prorated when a child enrolls mid-month. This amount will be automatically calculated for you in our registration system.
What should my child wear and where can I purchase dance shoes & clothes? VIEW STUDIO DRESS CODE. You may purchase items on your own, or visit our ONLINE SHOE AND DANCEWEAR STORE. Kinetic Arts will receive a portion of the proceeds from all sales.
Should I stay at the studio during my child's class? You are welcome to stay on the studio grounds, or you may drop your child off and pick them up at the end of class. Dancers will enter and exit through our studio garage doors.
Can my child switch classes? If you need to switch classes for any reason, you may do so provided that there is space available in the class of your choice. Please contact the studio office to change your online enrollment
What happens if the class we choose is already full? We have a maximum amount of students for each class to ensure a quality learning environment, and to meet our current social distancing rules. If you enroll after this maximum number is reached, your child will be added to the waiting list for the class, or you may attend the class virtually. We will contact you as soon as space becomes available.
Can we try a class before we register? New students may try a week's worth of classes free of charge. However, please keep in mind that classes fill very quickly during our school year registration period. In waiting to take your trial class, you may lose your position in a class.
How do we cancel our enrollment? You may drop a class at any time throughout the year. As a courtesy, we ask that you notify us one month in advance. Refunds and credits will not be issued for dropped classes, missed classes, or registration fees.
Do you offer make-up classes if my child needs to miss a class? You may drop into another class of your choice as a make up if you miss a class provided the class is not full. Please RSVP in advance if you plan to make up a class.
What about snow days other class cancellations: If classes need to be cancelled for any reason, we offer three make up dates throughout the season: Nov. 5, Feb. 4 and May 6. If classes are cancelled, they will be rescheduled for these dates. If you are not able to attend a make up session, you may drop into the class of your choice at any time.
Is there a performance/recital? Yes! All dancers are invited to perform in our Spring Recital, which takes place the Saturday after Memorial Day each year. Costume orders are placed in January. In addition, there may be an additional performance opportunity for dancers in December. There is also the option to perform at community events such as the Downtown Evergreen Holiday Walk, the Evergreen Rodeo Parade, Elk Run assisted living, and the Kinetic Arts Winter Showcase.
