Frequently Asked Questions
How many students are in a class?
Most classes this year are limited to no more than 15 students due to our commitment to provide your children with the best performing arts education and most nurturing class environment. Waiting lists are available and classes will be added as studio space permits.
Which dance classes should my child enroll in?
First, decide what area of dance most interests your child. For the unsure student, ballet is suggested as it is the basis of all types of dance. We separate students by age and ability. Students must be at least 3 years old and potty trained to be in our preschool classes. Students in Kindergarten and up should follow the 1-4 level guidelines. Students in the schools K4 "grade" are either in Preschool or Level 1 dependant on the class. If you or your child thinks Progressive classes would be the best level please contact the studio for more details.
How do I register?
Please come to the studio during the designated registration times to register in person. You can also register through this website under the classes tab. The registration fee along with the first months tuition is due upon registration at the studio or if registering online full payment must be received by the studio within 5 days of the registration to remain on the class lists.
How do I pay?
You may pay with cash or by check in person or by mail. Please make all checks payable to Bridget Dawn's Studio. You may pay by credit card online.
What if my child changes their mind after already enrolling?
We allow class transfers into other open classes. Pre-paid tuition is then credited to the new class. Classes are not pro-rated or refunded.
What should my child wear to class?
Bridget Dawn’s Studio of Performing Arts has a dress code that can be found in the Parent/Student Handbook. You will receive this handbook when you register.
Is the recital mandatory?
No, taking classes does not require you to participate in the annual dance recital. Please let the studio know, by November 1st, if you do not wish to participate in the recital.
What year trophy will my child receive at the recital?
They will receive a higher year trophy for each consecutive year that a student participates in the recital with Bridget. A student's previous dance
experience, unless in consecutive years with Bridget, does not count towards the recital. (i.e. If a student dances with Bridget for 3 years and skips a year, when they return they will only receive a 1st year trophy.)
