We are so excited to announce the launch of our new “Part-time competitive” program!

This program is designed for dancers who want to participate in dance competitions but at a reduced level of commitment. This will allow part-time dancers to spend their time developing their passion and having the opportunity to share it on the competitive stage. Time commitment will be 2 days per week with a personalized schedule catered to the goals/needs of each individual. We realize that not all children can be put into the same mold, and we want to offer a platform for expression for students who may not be ready for a full time commitment but still want the fullness of the experience!

I am wondering if there is a way she can still attend your school and how we could work around her time off classes if it is possible for her to attend?
