Our W45 Program is a 32-week commitment. To best support your child’s training, CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED. Please view our Policies page for more information on attendance.

All classes are closed for viewing so that teachers and students can maintain their focus without distraction. Parent Observation Day is held once during the season. We encourage parents and guardians to observe their dancers’ classes on this day.

The end-of-season showcase gives students the chance to display what they have learned throughout the year. All students are expected to participate in the showcase and dress rehearsal.

If for any reason a dancer will not be able to participate in this wonderful experience, please let us know prior to the Winter Holiday Break. There is an additional fee for the showcase and for each costume due in December.

Parents will receive important news and information via email throughout the season.
