FALL CLASSES

To ensure a quality learning environment, we have two visiting days per dance season.  Classes begin September 8 for Tuesday classes and September 14 for Monday classes.  Child must be potty trained or in Pull-ups.

There will be a parent’s information and registration day on August 24 from 4-7 p.m. at Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater.   You do not need to attend this day in order to register for the fall dance program; however, the instructor will be on hand during this time to answer any questions that you may have or simply to meet your child.

Tuition: Due before the first day of each class session.  No exceptions. (Registering at least one week before each class session starts is preferred so instructor can plan accordingly).  If you have any questions, please call the Recreation Centers, 972.219.3560 or 972.219.5061.  Each student who adds a second DANCE class per month will get a $15 discount off the second class.
