We will use Saturdays for additional rehearsals and choreography when needed. When we have a Saturday Rehearsal we will give you as much notice as possible but at least 1 month. There will never be a fee for additional rehearsals.

Every Saturday we offer an additional technique class in all areas of dance. The Class meets from 10am-12:30pm. There is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR THIS CLASS.

Conventions are optional and we will suggest a few we would like to take our team to at our parent meeting.  You are allowed to attend additional conventions; we just ask that we register you through The Dance Project.

Parent meeting will be Saturday, September 15th. At this meeting competition dates and additional information will be handed out. This is also a nice chance for the parents and the team members to get to know each other! The Dance Project wants to encourage the true meaning of “TEAM” and would like for our dancers to feel like they are part of a Family, not just a dance school.
