What's the missed class policy?

  • We offer make up classes for Rec dancers.

  • For a make-up class you may pick any available class that is the same time length and age range as your dancers current class.

  • During the winter and spring we do not encourage make-ups as they will be learning their recital dances and could fall behind in their class and be confused learning a dance in their make up class.

What should my dancer wear to class?

  •  It is most important that your dancer is comfortable in their clothing for class, what is required above all else is the correct shoes for that genre (tap, jazz, ballet, tennishoes).

  • Clothing Recommendations: 

    • Ballet: Tights, leotards, skirt, tutu leotard, leggings, shorts

    • Tap, Jazz, Broadway Bound, Popstar Dance Party: Leggings, shorts, t-shirts, leotards

    • Hip hop: Pants, sweatpants, shorts, t-shirts, tennis shoes

    • Acro: Leotards & shorts/leggings are encouraged

*No jeans, dresses, or skirts!

When can I drop off my dancer?

  • For youth and Starlet dancers please do not drop your dancer off any earlier than 10min before class begins. We encourage 5min prior to class start time.

How do I drop off/pick up?

Cleveland:

  • You may use 15-minute flashing spots next to the studio along Cleveland.

  • Please do not double-park next to cars in the 15-minute zone

North Ave:

  • For older children: You may drop off in front of the studio on North Ave. The driver must stay in the vehicle and may only pull over for a moment for the child to unload safely and go into AAD.

  • Pick up along North Ave. is not allowed.

  • During drop off/ pick up a front desk member will direct dancers into the classroom and help dancer find their parent/guardian.

  • If you are running late please give us a call and we will keep your dancer at the desk.

Can I do a drop-in class?

  • Fall Session: Of course! We encourage you to enroll your dancer in the entire session so they keep growing and learning with the rest of the class, but yes you can!

  • Winter/Spring: We encourage you to enroll your dancer in the full session because each week the kids will continue to add onto their recital dance that they will perform in June. 

Do you offer free trials?

  • Free trials are offered for new students at AAD.

  • If you are a current student and want to try a new class we encourage taking a $25 drop in class before enrolling in the session!

Can I watch my dancer?

  • To avoid an unhealthy crowding in studio spaces, we ask that parents & guardians drop their dancers off at the door!

  • We know that it can be difficult for dancers to part from their grown ups, especially that first week, we just ask that following your dancer entering their classroom, you leave for the duration of the class.

  • The door and curtain will be closed until the last 10min of class.

Where can I purchase dancewear/shoes?

  • We have a fully stocked dance apparel store in our lobby, Free To Be! Our store is open anytime dance classes are in session! During the Winter/Spring Session that will be 9:30am-8:30pm.
