|3. Recital classes|
Please note that our program is set up into 2 semesters, fall (learning the basics, combinations, etc.) and winter (building and working on our recital piece). All classes are recital classes (except 6 week classes) but this does not mean your child has to participate in the recital. We do not force any child into anything they are not comfortable with. If your child decides not to do the recital, they may still participate in both the fall and winter sessions. Please do understand that if you decide not to continue in the winter, there is no open registration for new classes, meaning you cannot drop ballet in the fall and try tap in the winter. Classes remain the same from the fall to the winter session and the day and time will stay the same.
