Dance Moves Maine is making it a priority to create a safe and successful dance experience for your dancer. We have always felt it was important to keep class sizes low but in an effort to ensure the above, we have created even lower class capacity. Therefore, if you are interested in joining us this Fall for in-person classes (Classes begin September 8th!), we encourage you to take the time to register now.
See a class you are interested in that is full? We are expecting this to happen and we strongly encourage you to join the waitlist! This means, anyone that decides later that they prefer not to attend or transfers to a different level or class, opens up a spot and you could be first on the list! It also means that if we see multiple people on a waitlist, we may choose to add another class into the schedule to accommodate those dancers. The class listing you will see available to you in your parent portal is a starting off point and we will continue to adjust, add and accommodate as necessary!
A little nervous about what the next few weeks will bring and hesitant to enroll? No worries, we understand. Registering now is just securing your spot and ensuring your dancer has this opportunity if they/you want it! If you decide it's not the right time, you can withdraw from the class by emailing us. We will have more information regarding the upcoming year ahead and Covid policies included with the student handbook that will be updated and shared prior to the start of the year.
We are SO looking forward to seeing you all again and doing what we love!
Each class, unless noted, is open to all students. When determining placement, we take into consideration their age and their skill level. It is important a student is not only in the correct level that allows for growth but also one that will coincide with their age and maturity level. The Studio Director and Instructors are skilled and trained professionals and it is imperative that it is understood by the student/parent that any class is contingent upon Instructor approval. You will be notified in the event we feel that a different style or level is appropriate.
The studio reserves the right to cancel or reschedule classes.
We encourage our students to take multiple classes in various styles to give them a well-rounded dance experience. As class hours go up, tuition is discounted to make this an affordable opportunity for our families.
