General Information

General Information and Policies

CENTER STAGE DANCE offers an excellent progressive nine-month dance program for both boys and girls. Our youngest dancers are provided with a learning experience that is grounded in teaching the fundamental techniques of tap, jazz and ballet.

Our basic class begins to introduce young dancers to appropriate dance terminology and provide students an opportunity to practice some basic tumbling skills. Students also have the option to add Hip Hop classes to their dance experience. As students progress through the years, they have an opportunity to increase the amount of time they focus on different disciplines including the opportunity to add pointe to their learning experience. Special care is taken to assure students receive the very best in dance technique and terminology training. Class size is kept to approximately thirteen students.

REGISTRATION
Registration begins July 5, 2018 for the 9 month program. We have made some changes to our class format.  Pointe classes will now be a separate class. Please see the attached letter for more details on this change.

We are also adding a 45 minute Beginner Boogie class for the 3-4 year old dancers.  This class will focus on basic fundamentals of balance, coordination, strength and flexibility as well as tumbling skills. These dancers will perform in the Spring Performance and will have costume.

Our registration process has shifted slightly this year.  We are excited to give a FREE studio t-shirt to all registered dancers!  Please review the registration fee schedule below:
