General Information

Open House: Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Please come view the facilities, meet the teachers, and enjoy the refreshments. Registration will be available that even for classes that still have openings.

Age Eligibility: You must be the required age on or before August 31st to participate in the class level.

Friends: Friends are welcome to come and try one class for free unless the class is closed. Please do not send friends or siblings with your children to sit and watch unless an adult plans to stay.

Observations: Parents are welcome to observe from the waiting room. Parents are invited into the classroom to observe class the last week before winter break.

Classroom limits: Classroom limit is 12 dancers for 45 minutes classes and 15 dancers for one hour or more. Exceptions are hiphop (15 for classes ages 11 and under, 20 for classes 12 and above) and advanced classes if more than the limit is at the level.

Needed boys in ballet! Any families registered at the Dance Center of Spokane are invited to put their sons in ballet on scholarship.

Instructor Changes: Due to the fact we have some teachers attending college full-time and some that perform professionally, teachers for all classes are subject to change each quarter. All of our teachers are highly trained and qualified, and are able to take over any classes if necessary.

Recital Policy

A recital fee for either one or both recitals is due on November 1st. $45 for one day or $75 for both days.  The recitals will then have free admission. The ballet recital will be on Saturday and all other styles of dance are on Friday. The rehearsals and recitals will be held in lieu of the regularly scheduled classes the week prior to that of the Recital weekend. Tumbling classes, Mom & Me, Ballet & Tumble, and Cardio Funk do a presentation on the last day of regular class and do not perform in the recital so no fee is collected.

Costumes

A costume deposit of $35 per class is due on November 1st with the remainder to be paid on January 11th.  Ballet is usually one costume per level. All Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, and Hiphop classes need a costume. Adult classes decide during the year if they want to participate. Tumbling classes, Mom & Me, Ballet & Tumble, and Cardio Funk do no need a costume. There are no refunds on costumes once they have been ordered. Average price of a costume is $75 for recital dances.
