June Dance Performance
Our Spring Production is scheduled to be at Towson University in Stephens Hall Theatre on Saturday, June 15. Our dress rehearsal will take place on Friday, June 14. If you are planning to participate in the performance please leave that week open for special rehearsals and other related events. Please fill out and turn in a “non performance” form (print out a copy from our website or form available at the studio) before January 1, if your child is unable to participate in our annual production. 


A $45 costume deposit per dance style will confirm a student’s participation in the performance. Deposits are due before December 31. Costume charges are posted in your online account. If your account is setup for autopay, costume deposits will be charged on Jan. 1st. Please notify us if you do not want costume deposits taken out by autopay.

  • Students in more than one ballet class only require a deposit for 1 ballet costume
     
  • RAD, Musical Theatre, Beginning Pointe and Pre-Pointe will not require a costume deposit. 

You are reminded that choreography does begin in early March and your commitment to regular attendance is required. The teacher has the right to limit participation in their choreography if absences are excessive (more than 1 per month in each dance class).
 

Please note: UFDA Policies (found on our website), UFDA tuition fees cover 30 weeks of lessons, which takes us into mid-May. After that time class schedules will change. This usually occurs 3-4 weeks leading up to the performance. A June fee (one months tuition) will be assessed for remaining classes and rehearsals leading up to our June performance.**
