Season 20 for DAW is here! We are working on making this year the BIGGEST one yet! It's going to be a great dance season!
We loved your tap dances so much that we're going to take them to competition this season! The fees for these tap dances are slightly different and are as follows: $275 for Elite (this covers entry fees, new hair accessory, and compensation for Ms. Angela) and $375 for Protege (this covers entry fees, new costume, and compensation for Ms. Angela). Elite dancers, please locate and keep your tap costume as you will reuse it. Protege, unfortunately, many of you have already outgrown your costume so we will need to purchase a new one. These fees will be collected with your entry fees on January 15, 2022.
Assignments to company dances along with choreography and weekly rehearsal schedule can be found here. Please review the schedule and make note of ALL the dances your child is in.
Fall classes will begin on Monday, August 9. You can view your classes through your online portal.
We will have a parent meeting on Thursday, August 12 for Elite and Protege from 7:00-7:30pm and Saturday, August 14 for Mini from 8:45am-9:30am.
Costume and Choreography Fees in the amount below will be auto-drafted on August 15. This includes choreography and company costumes only. Additional company dance costume fees in the amount of $330 per dance will be auto-drafted on September 15. Any soloist or duet must have costumes approved, selected, and ordered by August 15 as well.

Any new or returning member who needs a jacket, earrings, and black leggings fees will be auto-drafted on August 15. It's $125 for new members and jackets are $85, earrings $10, and black leggings $30 for any returning member. There will be a sizing of jackets and leggings along with a form available at the front desk the first week of class. Please use the sizing and fill out the form with items needed during the first week of class!
Next year's recitals dates are now June 1-5, 2022. We will continue with classes through the month of June.
After a seven-year absence, we will be heading to nationals with Inferno Dance Competition in Orlando, Florida June 29-July 3. We are super excited! Although Nationals is optional, we truly hope you will all make plans to attend. We will have mandatory rehearsals to prepare for nationals June 20-24. It will be an amazing experience! Dancers must commit to attending Nationals by January 15, 2022. Due to us attending nationals, we will not have the dance intensive July 25-30 mentioned in the company handbook.
This schedule has been finalized. Please keep these dates open and available! Dates are subject to change and will be added and adjusted here. Please make sure to check this schedule every week.
