The dance year is September through June. ADSD does not accept students on a trial basis. A student that drops out in the middle of the year leaves a vacancy that will not be easy to fill and they will NOT get credit for that year of dance study. Please speak to the Director ahead of time if class participation or scheduling is not working out for your child. New student registration will end the first of October. You must receive Director permission to begin lessons in the middle of the year.
Placement of a student is left entirely up to the Director. Technique, age, and ability guarantees progress of the student. Progress increases self-confidence. Practice at home is encouraged.
