Ballet Dancers

COVID-19 Updates

Here's what to know before you visit the studio for dance class:

  • Dancers will have spots to stand on spaced 6ft apart both center floor and at the ballet barre.

  • Dancers will have a milk crate to keep next to them at the ballet barre and put their things in. This eliminates shared cubby space.

  • Classes will be capped at 9 students.

  • Students will wash hands before and after class.

  • Masks are up to the discretion of parents.

  • If your child is sick, please, keep them home.


Uniform and Policies


In order to accurately instruct students in executing proper classical ballet technique, the positions of the legs, feet, and torso must be visible. The physical transition of changing into dance clothes assists students in making the mental transition to focusing on the body that is essential to a successful learning environment. For Pre-Primary and Primary Levels a black leotard with an attached skirt, pink tights and pink shoes are required. For other levels a black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes are required. Hair is to be pulled back in a neat bun. Only small pierced earrings may be worn and we ask that no necklaces, watches, or bracelets are worn during class. Boys are required to wear white t-shirts or white male leotard with black shorts or tights. We now sell tights, leotards and ballet slippers in the studio! Please ask Michelle to see sizes and styles.


  • Unfortunately, parents cannot observe weekly classes as it is disruptive to both the teachers and the students. We have an annual peek week in the spring which is an opportunity to see what your child is learning in class.

  • Children should be potty trained and able to use the bathroom by themselves. Please help remind your dancer to use the bathroom before class. 

  • Punctuality and consistent attendance are crucial aspects of ballet practice. We respectfully ask that you arrive on time to drop off and pick up your child. If you are consistently late to pick up or drop off your child, we will request an individual meeting and reserve the right to terminate participation in the ballet program. 

  • We understand that illness and circumstances beyond our control happen and some absence is inevitable. For any absences please call and leave a message at the studio 508-228-5028, or email Michelle 

  • If you enroll with a payment plan you must have an active credit card on file. Payments will be made on the 1st of the month unless otherwise requested.

  • Once registration is complete and tuition has been paid, there will be no refunds given.​
