Additional Registration Notes
DANCE TEAM & HIP-HOP REGISTRATION NOTES: Some of the age breakdowns for our Dance Team and Hip-Hop classes are different, as well, so we can get everyone a spot in a class and keep our numbers where they have to be. We ask that you fully read the registration class schedule information regarding these classes to avoid being moved or missing a spot entirely.
DANCE APPAREL & SHOES: For dance apparel and shoes, we recommend Applause Dancewear in Homewood, AL. They have everything you need and even offer a bundle discount starting in August.
