Frequently Asked Questions For Nan’s School of Dance

Here are answers to commonly asked questions. If you cannot find something you are looking for, please see our online Policies Handbook for more detailed information or ask at our front desk. We are happy to help!
Our school year runs mid-August through May like a traditional school calendar. Most of our students register before our school year starts; however, we do accept registrations for the school year through January 31.
Although we do not specify a particular style or color, students are asked to wear “dance attire” to every class. Leotards with skirts are perfect for our littlest dancers, while dance pants and tight-fitting tank tops are fine for the older group. We simply ask that all dancewear be fitted so the instructors are able to see the dancer’s body in order to make critiques. For Hip Hop classes, play clothes are acceptable, but jeans, jean shorts or skirts are not acceptable. Hair must be secure and off the face.
We ask that all students wear the appropriate dance shoes to class. If you are worried about your child outgrowing their shoes before recitals, we recommend that you buy the shoes a little bit big (about a thumb’s width of room in the end), but not so big that they trip! Kids grow quickly! We sell shoes at our Open House Registration for your convenience.
Absolutely! We offer a FREE trial class to dancers so that they can find the perfect fit for them! It’s a great way to find out if your child is going to like class, and if it works with your schedule.
Our lobbies have TV monitors in addition to one-way windows so that parents can watch their dancer during class. We ask that parents do not sit in the studio because it is unfair to other parents & kids. Often kids have a hard time understanding why one student’s mom/dad can sit in class, but theirs cannot. Thank you for understanding!
Yes! Come to any class that is style and age‐appropriate. There is no need to call or email ahead of time. Just simply come, and tell the teacher that you are making up a missed class. It’s that easy!
Recitals are in the spring at the end of our dance year. They are not mandatory, but we highly recommend every student to participate. It is fun for the kids, and it builds self‐confidence! If you choose not to participate, we must receive notice in writing before November 10th.
Recital & Costume fees are due by November 10th. Cash or Check is acceptable. Parents will get an invoice via email for the costume fees.
Students will receive costumes in the spring before picture week.
