Why can’t I see the class schedule online?
We have a variety of classes that vary depending on age, date of birth, previous dance experience, and current skill levels. Our front desk can give you a personalized assessment of which classes your dancer should start in and where they may fit best. Receiving your dancer’s specific class options from our staff will save you time and confusion when looking at our many offerings!
How much does tuition cost?
Tuition is based on how many weekly classes your dancer attends, their level, and if performances are included. Our personalized program assessment begins with setting up a trial week where students can explore a variety of classes for their age and skill level at one introductory price. This provides an opportunity for feedback in determining the best placement for your dancer. Upon completion, our front desk will provide a summary of class offerings your dancer is eligible for. From there, based on what classes are chosen to enroll in, our front desk will provide a price quote and a breakdown of tuition.
*We offer military, fire, and police discounts and family discounts for multiple dancers!
What should my dancer wear to their trial classes?
Dancers may wear whatever they can comfortably move in for trial classes, with socks/sneakers if they still need to own dance shoes. Should the dancer choose to enroll in classes after their trial week, our front desk can go over their specific class dress code with you.
How does my dancer wear her/his hair for class?
For ballet, hair should be slicked back into a classic ballet bun, bobby pinned in, and covered with a hair net. For all other classes, hair should be slicked back into a ponytail. Please hairspray all wispy/stray hairs down.
Do we have to purchase the class dress code leotard? Do they have to wear ballet tights?
Historically, leotards and tights have been the traditional attire for dancers over the years, which is why we require a class dress code to instill tradition and discipline in our students. To ensure proper technique and safe execution of movements, instructors need to be able to see the line and form of dancers. Pink tights help them to do this. Like martial arts, the different leotard colors represent the progression in levels as students mature in their dance technique and artistry.
I want my younger and older dancers to be at the studio simultaneously; why can’t they take classes together?
Our classes and curriculum are very specific and vary between levels. If there is an age difference between dancers, they are most likely at different levels. To be the most successful and gain the skills to progress in their dance technique while remaining safe, their class placement is at the instructors’ discretion and follows our well-established system.
Do we have to purchase the class leotard and/or shoes from Dorothy’s Dance Shop? Can’t we buy them from anywhere?
Dorothy’s carries a unique dress code, strictly for Trilogy dancers, that can not be found elsewhere. The class leotard is a studio requirement, so please visit Dorothy’s to get yours and enjoy a Trilogy discount towards your purchase at the store!
