Youth Dance Classes and Camps
Fall Class Sessions
Fall Session: September 1st-November 21st consists of 12 weeks of instruction with a small recital the weekend of November 27th (day, time and location TBA). Dancers may join at any time as payments are collected month to month, however dancers who sign up late may not be eligible to participate in the recital. Registration and payment must be made one week prior to the start of a new month. Classes meet at Papillion Landing Community Recreation Center.
We will have a parent observation week the 3rd week and the 9th week of the Fall Session. Typically, we will ask parents to wait for their dancer from a distance as to not distract students and to create a safe and comfortable learning environment for everyone. Special arrangements may be made during the first few minutes or first few classes for any hesitant or nervous dancers.
