Join in the fun and get dressed up with us the week before Halloween. You are welcome to wear a non scary costume of your choice, or dress up to match our studio wide themes.

Thursday - Sports / Jersey Day (dancers are athletes!)

Costume Fees
Costume fees are $75 per class and will be automatically debited November 15th. Costume Fees are non-refundable for any reason. If the total due for Costume Fees exceeds $150, a down payment of $150 will be debited on November 15th and the remaining balance will be auto-debited December 15th. If you wish to pay for your costumes before the due date, please make your payment in the studio so that we can be sure that it is correctly posted to your account. Costume Fees do not typically apply to camp students. Costumes do not include the price of tights or shoes, which will be required for all classes. Regarding size, fit, and alterations: We will measure all students prior to ordering costumes. We take the following measurements - chest, waist, hips, girth, and inseam. We refer to a specific sizing guide, provided by costume companies, when choosing sizes for our students. We do leave room for growth when choosing sizes. It is important to realize that costumes are not tailored made to fit the needs of each student and from time to time alterations will need to be made. Alterations and any cost associated with alterations are the responsibility of of the parent. 

Observation Policy
This season we will allow one parent per family to be inside the studio during classes. Siblings and additonal family members will not be permitted. We will have a staff member present to supervise students in the drop off / pick up area outside

Dance, Dance, Hooray! 
As we kick off our 20th season, we are thrilled to have YOU as a part of our dance family. One thing that is very important to us here at DAW is that we are helping to develop strong, smart, loyal, kind humans...not just great dancers. We realize that not all of our students will become professional dancers, but all will become professional people of some sort. Helping our students to get a leg up in life is what it's really all about. It's our goal to have a positive impact on our student's lives and their future. Check out some of the coloring sheets we will be sharing with our students that represent admirable attributes: Teamwork, Responsibility, Knowledge, Compassion, Goal Setting, Loyalt
