"Our Dance and Acrobatic season is off to a great start!"


Our Dance and Acrobatic season is off to a great start!  We are thankful that you chose our school for your student’s training.  During the first week 6 weeks of classes, teachers are evaluating students for class placement.  If your student’s class is not the perfect fit, your teacher will recommend an alternative class time for you. It is important to find the right class.


Attendance is important in your child’s training.  New material is added each week, if your child misses a class, please call for a make-up class time.  We will give you class times that are on the same lesson plan.   


Tuition Express - If you are paying for your tuition by the month you must be signed up for Tuition Express.   Payments will be electronically deducted from your checking account or charged to a credit/debit card on the first of each month, forms are on the desk.   Once you have filled it out, please put the form in lock box in the lobby.  We do not accept payments at the studio.   Payments can be called into our Grand Pointe location at (810) 694-7754.  Tuition is the same each month, we guarantee a 40 week dance season.  New classes can be added at this time and we do offer Unlimited Student and Family rates.  Acrobatics classes however do not fall under Unlimited Dance rates.  Students 30 days behind in class payments will not be able to attend class.


The week of October 24 -30, we will be having a Halloween Party at the end of class.  Students are welcome to bring treats to pass.  Dancers may wear costumes to class for an interpretive dance class. We will be closed on October 31.


Bring a Friend Month – “Bring a Friend to Class”, If your friend enjoys the class and enrolls, their tuition will be applied to your account as a thank you for recommending your studio.  This promotion will last all month. 


Tremaine Dance Convention - is November 11 and 12.  If you have a dancer, age 6, or older who is interested in going, more information is available from their teacher.  It is a great opportunity to take class from the best teachers in the country.  All levels are welcome and our students come away energized with the love of dance.


Adult Classes - We are offering our Bemoved Fitness Class, taught by Miss Rae Litwicki.  This class is a new dance fitness experience.  Classes begin with easy-to-follow therapeutic movements that integrate the upper and lower body.  The warm up flows into dance styles inspired by a wide variety of musical genres, Bollywood, Jazz, Latin, Disco etc.  We also are offering Ballet, Tap and Jazz classes for adults.  Please let us know if you are interested.  We love a dancing family.
