If your child participates in a private lesson (solo, trio, duet), and you wish to enter that in a competition, please fill that in on your payment form. Submit the grand total of all group dances, solos, duets and trios. FORM MUST ACCOMPANY PAYMENT. We will not submit a competition entry for any student with an
overdue account. All tuition and fees must be current.
Classes are in session and we are off to a great start. Our recital dates are unknown as of November 1st. We are waiting on a confirmation from the Auditorium Theater.

Welcome to the 2020-21 dance season at Elite Studio of Dance! Classes will start Monday, September 14th. We are looking forward to a great start to the 2020-2021 dance season. We Are Committed To Keeping Our Dancers SAFE. After careful consideration, and until further notice, we will be requiring masks for dancers in all classes except our ages 2 ½-4, Toddlers and Tots 1 class, where masks will continue to be optional for students (mandatory for teachers). As many schools and all gyms require masks to be worn full time, this added measure will further protect our dancers and families. In addition to our mask policy,
- class sizes will be limited according to social distancing recommendations
- teachers and staff will be required to wear masks
- students will be asked to use hand sanitizer (provided in the classroom) at the start and end of each class
- studios and equipment will be cleaned between classes
- the lobby will remain closed to limit the number of people in the studio. Parents need to drop students off at the front door and pick up from the sidewalk
- we ask that students who are not feeling well do not come to class
