Enrollment for the ’23-’24 studio year will open August 1st.

PLEASE NOTE: During Enrollment season, submitting a registration form does not guarantee final class placement for dance students. Instructors have the final say in class placement after a variety of factors are considered including, but not limited to student’s age, previous experience, and skill level.
