My child is 12 and has never danced before, can he/she still start? Will they be with younger dancers?
Anyone can start dance, music or drama at any age. At The Studio all students are group by age and ability (with the exception of Acro, this is based solely on ability).
Does my child need to audition before taking class?
No, never. Based on a discussion with you and your child we will place your child in the best class possible. We are very open to students trying different classes until they find the right fit. The only programs that require auditions are the Studio Intensive Program for dancers 7-18, The Studio Young Company and Studio Glee.
Am I allowed to watch my child?
Parents are allowed to view classes through our studio windows or by watching the split screen monitor in our waiting area. We also have family observation week to allow parents into the classes to support and encourage their children.
Do you have an end of year show?
Yes, we have many performance opportunities at The Studio. We have a mid year dance recital for our ballet students 6 and up and our Intensive Program dancers. The Studio Young Company produces full length musicals in February. At the end of our season in late May/early June we have our Dance Recital will all dance students ages 3 to adult and mid June is our Music / Drama showcase.
