Can I try the class before commiting to the session?We are currently allowing drop-ins for all sessions, but suggest taking the whole session if this is your first time dancing, or back to dancing.
If I miss a class am I able to make it up?Yes! Beginner session clients are allowed two make up classes per session, that can be made up in any other beginner level class. Makeup classes expire at the end of the session. Makeup classes are only valid for the 8-week period in which the client is registered.
Is there a dress code for these classes? I'm not sure what to wear!Don't worry, there is no dress code for the beggining sessions! We want you to feel comfortable and confident in class, so wear something comfortable that you are able to move in. We also understand that dance shoes are expensive! For ballet, modern. jazz, and Gaga/ people socks or bare feet works perfectly! For Hip Hop, clean sneakers are a great option!
Once purchasing a session, am I able to jump around between the different classes?"No, when purchashing a session you are purchasing 8 weeks for that particular class. So, if you enroll for the 8 Week Beginner Ballet Session, you must take all 8 weeks in ballet. You can't, for example, take 2 Beginner Ballet classes, 2 Beginner Jazz classes, one Beginner Hip Hop etc. You are however allowed up to 2 make up classes. These makeup classes can be taken in other generes than what you origanlly signed up for.
