A note about the email signup.. It looks like it doesn't work after entering information but if you check your email in a couple minutes you should have a verification email. Newsletters are sent on one of the last days of each month. If you don't receive it, check either your spam or trash folder. You may need to add our email address to your contact list for it to be delivered correctly.
Special Events to note:
Check our current newsletter for important information. Newsletters are always published on or before the 1st day of the next month with a few copies available in the studio to take home or to read. They are also emailed to any of our parents that have given us an email address. We don't generally pass them out to students as they tend to get left all over the studio and crumpled up in bags. Links are above if you prefer to read/print online.
We are now closed for Christmas break! Classes will resume the week of January 5th and tuition will be due that week as well. Responses from us may be slow as we will be out and about enjoying the holidays with our families. We wish all our families and students a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! 2020 ... here we come!
Watching week: The next one will be the week of March 8th! Parents are welcome to come in and see what your students have been learning during their classes but please do not bring in food or drinks. Only water in closed bottles is allowed in the dance area. Seating is very limited so we are having to limit visitors to one or two per family per watching week. Any visitors over two (including siblings) will need to stay in the waiting room. In some classes, we may have to limit to 1 at a time so parents may have to split the class time due to class sizes. Also, please be respectful of our classes and keep conversation to a minimum. Sapphire, Ruby & Opal Team parents may choose to watch the last hour of their normal class time. Hip Hop Team parents may watch the whole hour. Extra practices do not qualify for watch weeks.
Student Aid Fundraisers: These fundraisers are very different! These are designed to help our students pay fees which they may not be able to afford otherwise! Check out the button above for all the details! All registered SKDS students are eligible to participate! Keep an eye out for an announcement for the specific fundraiser and the date details.
Dance Teams: Our dance teams have been chosen for the upcoming year and we're very excited to get the year started! Check our FB page for pictures and a cool behind the scenes video! If you are interested in being on a team for next season and are (or will be) at least 8 years old with a dance background, all the information is on our dance team page under the more link. We hold dance team training classes in the summer to help prepare students for team life. These classes are MANDATORY as experience in ballet/lyrical, tap and jazz are all required. Tryouts are no longer a part of being on a team which is why the training classes are mandatory. Sara will place all students onto appropriate teams at the end of the summer if she feels they are ready for the team environment.
NEW!! Hip Hop Team! New for fall 2019, we have added a hip hop competition team! See both the Hip Hop Team info and the Dance Team info pages for all the information!
Studio closings: Any studio closings due to weather or other events, will be announced through our texting service (see information above), on our facebook page, on cinewsnow.com/closings and on WEEK-TV & WHOI-TV. Announcements will be made no later than 4:00 pm. Please check all these resources before contacting our teachers.

Please help us by abiding by the dress code! All students must wear clothes they can move in easily as it helps both the student and the teacher. NO jeans or anything jeans related. No jewelry except stud earrings and wear the appropriate shoes for the class. DO NOT WEAR YOUR DANCE SHOES OUTSIDE! Sweatshirts and pants are fine until they are warmed up but be sure they have on clothing underneath when they get too hot.
