New to Dance?

A child’s first dance class is a very special milestone!

We are honored you have chosen The Dance Project for your child's dance education.  Dance has brought us so much joy and taken us on many colorful adventures, we know it will do the same for your dancer! It's our 10 year anniversary here at The Dance Project! We hope you will join us as we celebrate A Decade of Dance!

Bows, Buns, Costumes, Rehearsals, it can seem a little foreign your first go around as a dance parent.  Don’t worry! We are here to help you!  One of the first things you will need to do is to create an account through our Parent Portal.  Click START REGISTRATION below to set up a family and student account.

After you have created your parent portal and family account, one of our friendly staff members can assist you in finding the perfect class. Our staff will register you into your chosen class(es) in our software. The next step in the registration process is filling out a few forms. You may choose to download the forms here or you can stop by the front desk to pick up hard copies.

Once your dancer is registered in a class, your account will be charged a yearly $25 family registration fee due at the time of enrollment. Our tuition fee schedule is based on a 4 week session.  To find out the tuition for the class or classes you are interested in View Tuition Details.  Our classes meet once a week from the beginning of August to mid June, for a total of 11 sessions.   To get the most out of your dance education, we highly encourage dancers to take the full year of dance.  We accept new students through January. Students who enroll later in the season may need private lessons (which are $30 each) in order to catch them up on the class curriculum.

New students are able to try their first class FREE with no obligation.  If you would like to take a free trial class just click here to fill out a Trial Class Waiver, then call or stop by the front desk to schedule your trial class.

We offer the convenience of paying your tuition and other associated fees through our parent portal.  Through the parent portal you can view your families current and upcoming fees and past payment history.  

Every class is taught by a highly qualified teacher in one of our 4 dance rooms.  Each of our dance rooms have a sprung dance floor that is healthy for growing, athletic bodies.  You may also see a class assistant in your child’s class. Class assistants are all talented members of our Performing Group that are eager to work with our younger dancers.  

We have very large observation windows and plenty of seating, allowing family members great views into the classroom.  Our windows have privacy mirror tint on them allowing you to see in and our dancers to stay focused on what is going on inside the classroom.

We do have a dress code and strongly believe in  “Dress Like a Dancer = Act Like a Dancer”.  Dress Codes can be found under each class description. Be sure to visit our BOWtique located inside the studio where you can find everything you need from darling dance dresses for our littlest dancers to the latest dance trends for our teens.  

Each year in December, before we break for the holidays, we invite families and friends into the studio for Showcase Week. Dancers get to show off their hard work and you get to see the progress your child has made over the course of the first semester.  This year's Showcase Week is December 14th-20th.

Our season leads up to an end of the year recital.   All of our dancers are highly encouraged to participate in the end of the year recital.  It is a culmination of a year’s hard work and allows our dancers a chance to shine.  They truly enjoy their moment in the spotlight.  Each class requires a recital costume, which average $75 a piece. Our costuming is beautiful and always age appropriate. Tickets for the End of the Year Recital are $15 a piece. This year's Recital "A Decade of Dance" will be June 15-20th.

A bit about dance education: Dance education encompasses far more than the steps your children will learn. Discipline, Commitment, Respect, Friendship and Teamwork are just a few of the virtues dance education fosters.   We strive to provide a loving, professional, age-appropriate environment with a first class staff and facility that enables our dancers to grow and flourish.  Our goal is to educate our dancers; to teach them skills needed for success in life, whether or not they stay involved in dance.
