Early childhood movement education is directly attributed to developing neurological pathways in students and promoting reading readiness. (Raising-A-Reader, 1999) Preschool dance prepares students for successful experience in school. Children who have participated in movement education activities have longer attention spans, communication skills, general problem-solving skills, and improved self-esteem. "For every $1 spent on children's recreational activities, society saves $4.78 in costs of remedial education, welfare, and crime prevention." (Federal Committee for Economic Development, 1998).
Dance is a form of art that can become a lifelong passion. The impression the art makes on a child can last a life-time, no matter if a dancer continues to dance or simply becomes a Dance Enthusiast!
There are specific benefits to a nine/ten month (depending on school year) commitment that cannot be achieved in any short term sport or activity. Our dance season length allows the children to learn, early in life, to stay focused, learn patience, self-discipline, and finally to appreciate the end results. These skills are necessary later in life for ...college, work, family etc. It's true... Dance is Good for the Mind, Body, and Soul.
Your child's progress is continually tracked by our faculty and they will approach you when your child has accomplished the proper skills necessary to be promoted out of their class.
This depends on you and your child. If your child is comfortable with you leaving, then by all means feel free to do so. Be sure to come in and get your child. No young children are allowed to leave the studio unattended.

You have many options when filling out your registration form. Option1 is for auto billing. We will charge your credit card the 1st of each month for your balance due and email your receipt if an address is provided. Option 2 gives you the option to pay your account on or before the 1st of each month at our office. If payment is not received on or before the due date, The Dance Place Ltd will initiate a $15 late fee. We will not send out a monthly bill, it is your responsibility to pay your balance.
Although we do NOT require contracts of any kind, our tuition rates are based on a ten-month (Sept. - June) "dance season." Tuition will be due on the 1st of every month, and is the same amount each month regardless of the number of weekly classes in any particular month. The total cost of the dance season is divided into 10 equal monthly tuition payments, regardless of holiday breaks in any particular month.
All you need to do is stop by the front desk and fill out a drop-class request form and turn it in at the end of the current month. As of the beginning of the following month, your account will not be charged, (Tuition Adjustment) and your child will be removed from the class.
