Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back!  I hope you are as excited as we are to be starting our 37th season of dance.  

We have a wide variety of classes available for all ages starting at 3, to our adult classes. 

JoAnn's is dedicated to instilling an appreciation of the art of dance in each of our students while having fun learning to dance.

Studio Policies

Attendance - You have committed yourself/ your child to a dance class that is held once a week, sometimes more.  Please make sure she/he is at class each week.

Some students try to "juggle" sports and dance and it gets very difficult when they are consistently absent because of a sporting event.  We find that it is not fair to the other students in the class to be held back when a student to catch up on what was missed.

Attire – Students are expected to be in proper dance clothing – NO jeans, shorts, capris or t-shirts of various groups, designs, etc.  Studio dress code is:

Tap, Jazz, & Hip/Hop: students wear dance pants and a JoAnn's Academy of Dance t-shirt or sweatshirt, & hip/hop sneakers, white tap shoes for preschool children, tan shoes for older students, tan jazz shoes. 

Ballet & Lyrical: students wear pink  (preschool students) long sleeve leotards, older students wear black long-sleeve leotards; all students in pink footed tights and pink slippers. Dance skirts are acceptable.  NO t-shirts or sweatshirts.

Tardiness – Please be on time for class. Lateness not only disturbs the flow of the class, but it is disrespectful to the teacher and your fellow classmates. Be ready, with your shoes on, a few minutes before class starts. 

Tuition – Each class is based on an average of 4 classes per month. As there are no charges for months with 5 lessons, there is no reduction in tuition for lessons missed during scheduled holidays. Tuition is due on the 1st of each month.  A $10.00 late fee will be added after the 10th of the month. There will be an additional fee of $25.00 for all returned checks.

Cancellations: If classes are cancelled due to inclement weather you will be notified via e-mail.  Please do not call the Patrizio Center for the Arts.  All classes cancelled due to inclement weather will be made up at a later date.
