Dance Classes FAQ
Can you register yet for fall to spring session dance classes?
Yes, we highly encourage registering your child as soon as possible into our fall to spring 2013-2014 dance classes. We have class size limits so the best way to get the class and time you want is to register early. You can also take advantage of our current Early Bird Dance Class Discounts if you register by July 1st, 2013. You can see these classes on our dance class page.
Do you have a summer dance program?
Yes, we offer Summer Camps and Classes (you can see these offerings on our summer dance program page).
Do you have a limit on the size of a class?
Yes, Dancers Unite limits the size of our dance classes, since we want to make sure that each student receives individual attention. We limit class size to 15 and for our preschool dance classes we have at least a 5 to 1 student/teacher ratio.
Registration therefore is done on a first come, first serve basis, so if the class fills up then you will have to take another dance class.
If my child or I miss a class due to being out of town, my child being sick, or a holiday, will the class be made up?
You will be allowed to make-up the class by taking another class on our schedule that is for the same age. Just ask one of the owners (Miss Jo, Miss Julie or Miss Elizabeth) for assistance in finding a make-up class, or call the studio at 704-846-2985 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you sell dance shoes?
We sell pink ballet shoes and black tap shoes in children’s sizes, which are the shoes required for our dance recital. Our ballet shoes cost $16 and our tap shoes cost $20. We also sell black jazz shoes in both children's and adult sizes. The adult jazz shoes cost $26 and the children's jazz shoes cost $24. These jazz shoes are the shoes required for our dance recital for both jazz and hip hop dance classes.
Do you require any particular color leotard in your ballet classes?
Since we are firm believers in freedom of expression, we allow any color leotard. We just require that students in ballet must wear a leotard so that the instructor can properly see body lines in order to help correct students’ technique. Please see our dress code policy for a full list of what we require in each dance class.
My two year old likes to dance but I’m not sure if she/he is ready for the class. What should I do?
Go ahead and register your child for dance. If it turns out your child is not quite ready for the classroom experience, then your registration fee and first month’s tuition will count towards next year and your child will be able to try again then for no extra money! We want to work with our youngest students and give them the best experience possible!
What types of payment are accepted?
Dancers Unite accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover via online payments. If you do not wish to pay online, we also accept personal checks and cash.
Can I pay the monthly tuition payment online?
Yes! For students who take 45 minutes a week, 1 hour a week, or 1 hour and 15 minutes a week, the monthly tuition payment can be made online. Please click here for instructions on how to pay the monthly tuition payment online.
Do you offer sibling discounts?
Yes! Please check out additional information on pricing and sibling discounts for dance classes.
If you would like to register for classes in person, you can call the studio at 704-846-2985 to schedule an appointment. For your convenience, you may print off and fill out this registration form beforehand.
To pay with a credit card over the phone, please call us at 704-846-2985. Completing registration over the phone will reduce your paperwork as you can tell us the information we need & we can fill out the registration form for you! *Please note: you will need to sign a registration form on the first day of class, but the information will already be filled out.*
What is the age range of classes offered?
Dancers Unite’s goal is to make sure everyone has a dance class suitable for their age. We have classes starting at 2 years up to adult dance classes!
Do you have a competition team?
Yes! Our competition team competes in regional competitions as well as one national competition. For more information about our competition team please see our competition dance page or call the studio at 704-846-2985 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
Why are there no competition classes listed on the schedule for 2012-2013?
The competition class times will be given to students after the student is accepted on the competition team.
Why can't I enroll in the pointe class?
We hold evaluations for all students interested in taking pointe. This is to make sure that the students are physically ready for pointe -- starting pointe too early can be dangerous for the dancer. Pre-pointe classes are also an option, to help prepare the student for dancing en pointe. Please check out more information about our pointe classes. You can also contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at 704-846-2985 for more information.
