Dance In Style Studio 2020 Fall Registration
How to Register: Please use our online portal at thestudiodirector.com to register your child(ren) for dance classes this year. If you are new to our studio, please register via the September 2020 Registration button below. Returning families can login to the same account you used last season.
There is currently no way to pay for your registration through our online portal.
Due to COVID-19, we are waiting to take payments from families until September. At that time, we will only be doing monthly payments (just incase we have a second wave). Families can set up a PAD in the office, send an e-transfer or pay in the office.
We will send out an e-mail regarding payment closer to registration with further details. Your payment options will be:
1) E-transfer – email@example.com (no security question is required)
2) Office – We accept Debit, Cash or Cheque Pre-Authorized Payment. Set up a PAD which allows you to pay over a 10-month period for your child’s dance classes. NOTE: You must set up a new PAD each year. If you had one last year, it does not transfer over to this year. Please come in during office hours in September to make or set up your payment.
Welcome to Dance In Style Studio!
Hello Dancers and Parents,
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. The staff and I really miss our dancers and we can not wait to see them again at the studio.
Since being away from the studio due to COVID-19, we have done some really neat events with our dancers. The staff and I were running virtual dance classes on Zoom, which was a lot of fun and a great way to keep dancers moving. We made a YouTube channel that included fun videos so our students could practice all their moves at home. We participated in the “We Are One” song challenge by putting together a video of our dancers dancing and striking a pose from home. This video made it on Jason McCoy’s Instagram page!
I would like to congratulate all TEN of our graduate dancers! Unfortunately, these beautiful dancers did not get the chance to perform on stage for the last time. But we have assured them that at our next recital they will be included, so they can share their talent.
I am excited to announce that the fall 2020/2021 registration will be held on Saturday, July 4th online at 10:00 a.m. Our season may look a little different due to COVID-19. There will be breaks in between each class so that staff can clean their studios and equipment. Class sizes will be smaller and we will have separate entrances and exits. The staff and I will make sure that the studio will be a safe environment for our dancers. We will not be taking costumes fees until later in the dance season, when we know we can have a recital at the end of the year.
I received confirmation from Southwestern Public Health that our studio can open for summer camps. Our camps will have a limit of dancers and, due to COVID-19 and ratio restrictions, we will not be running our preschool programs. Our leadership campers will not be integrated with our other camps to help as this is not allowed, so the leadership camps will be held as full day camps instead of half. The staff and I are planning amazing activities, cool crafts and fun dances for our campers. Don’t worry, we will be enforcing social/physical distancing and following all the guidelines provided by Southwestern Public Health.
Thank you for your on-going support. The staff and I can not wait to share our love of dance again with our students this summer and in the fall!
