The school and office will be open by 8:15am daily

  • Please visit the office if you have any questions, and for payments or dance wear.
  • If you have not already paid your summer tuition, please do so before your first class.

Ballet Intensive students should be at the school 10-15 minutes before class in order to have time to prepare for their first class.

  • New families – please introduce yourselves at the office when you first arrive at the school. 🙂

Please remember to pack healthy snacks, water bottles and a healthy lunch (for those with us all day)

  • Always avoid sugary drinks & processed foods as they will not give you the proper nutrition or energy you need for your day!
  • Don’t forget your cutlery if you are bringing food that needs a spoon or fork.
  • Avoid bringing nuts at the school as some students have severe nut allergies.
  • We have a filtered water fountain and water-bottle filling station in the lobby.
  • We no longer have microwave or fridge available for students, so pack a cold lunch or use insulated lunch bags.
