First week of dance classes, Hamilton Workshop, September DMA Workshop, and more!
First Week of Dance Classes!
Monday, September 12th is the first day of our School Year 2022/2023, Teen/Adult Fall/Winter 2022, and Creative Movers 2022/2023 dance sessions!
Here are our Top 5 Tips for a great Back-to-Dance Experience:
1. Make sure you have logged in to your Parent Portal to double check that your contact information is correct! You can also double check your class' day and time through the portal if you need a reminder, along with which studio your classes are held in, your teacher's name, and your class content page ( toward the bottom, under "Class Schedule"). This is where you will find your class Zoom links if you ever need to attend virtually, as well as recordings of previous classes, and any supplemental materials provided by your teachers.
2. Review the Studio Policies and COVID Safety Policies & Procedures so you're up-to-date and know what to expect!
3. Plan to come a few minutes early the first day so you can get settled in. Please go directly to the correct studio for your class:
4. Make sure you have the proper dress code items for your class. If you don't have them yet though, no worries! You can purchase all dress code items as well as PP logo gear and other accessories through our on-line boutique. We can also help you in-person at the studio during regular desk hours if you need to be fitted. Please note that shoe orders can take up to 2 weeks to arrive. For the first few weeks of classes, the hours between 4:30 and 7:30pm on weekdays, and 9:30am to Noon on Saturdays, tend to be very, VERY busy! If you are able to drop by the boutique outside of those hours, it is likely to be a quicker and calmer shopping experience.
5. Mark your personal calendars and/or subscribe to our Google Calendar to stay up to date on all studio holidays, special events, etc. Specific calendars are available below, as well as in hard copy at the studio. You don't want to miss a thing!
