Fundraisers

Each year we work to provide a couple of fundraisers for students to participate in to help raise money for their costumes or performance feed. Examples are selling potatoes, jamba juice cards, movie tickets, Daily Deals, Idaho Direct and flavored popcorn. More information is available on the Fundraiser page.

Attendance Policy

If a parent calls or e-mails before class starts to inform of their dancer being sick, a make-up class will be offered for 3-5yr. recreational dance classes. All other recreational classes will receive a $5 credit towards the following months tuition. Competitive students are only allowed 2 absences and must inform the director prior to being absent. In the event a competitive student misses more than 2 practices that student will become an alternate and will have to re-tryout for placement back in the routines. If a competitive student misses practice prior to competition/performance they will not be allowed to compete/perform!!!

Dress & Conduct Code
