WHAT TO EXPECT

If it's your first time at Formations Dance Center, we recommend you arrive 15 minutes early to fill out participation waivers. Please enter & exit through the large studio #129.

Make sure your dancer has their shoes, is dressed according to our dress code, and brings a water bottle.

We ask that parents drop their dancers off and return before their class is finished.  Students will be dismissed to their guardian after their class concludes. Classes offered for our 2-4 year olds are able to have observers; we do recommend drop off. 

We offer free trial class before committing to the full season; give your dancer a chance to try out a new style or class. Please send us an email at formationsdancecenter@gmail.com to set up the day your dancer would like to come.

annual recital & aerial showcase

Formations Dance Center has an Annual Recital (usually the weekend following Memorial Day).  Any student participating in the recital will incur a costume fee for each dance, due the middle of December.  They must also have the proper tights and shoes for each dance.  All Recital Fees & Costume Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. 

We also have an Annual Aerial Showcase in the spring.  This is an option for all students participating in an aerial dance class.  Participants must turn in a costume fee in November and tickets must be purchased ahead of time as space is limited.​
