Dress Code…

Our mandatory dress code helps the teacher see the silhouette of the body to make any necessary corrections to ensure safe/proper execution of all dance steps. This uniform also creates a sense of belonging, pride, & discipline as they learn the art of dance. We only use the best companies because they are well-made, stronger, and safer for our dancers’ feet & ankles. They also will not scuff or damage our dance floors. We do not carry or recommend used/hand-me-down shoes since they are made to mold to an individual’s unique foot and can break down easily with wear and tear.

Performances and Recital…

Throughout the year we offer optional performances such as parades, nursing home shows, community events, and more. Each activity is open to ALL Shore Stars dancers and is completely optional. We invite you to pick and choose whatever events work for your family throughout the year. Specific information will be e-mailed and advertised at the studio for each event. In June we have an optional recital for all dancers. It is very unique celebration with friends and family! The event begins with the show, then an elegant breakfast buffet and dessert, and then we have a party with a DJ playing music and games for all guests to enjoy together.

Communication…

Our primary source of communication is through e-mail, Facebook, and posters at the studio. It is your responsibility to read all e-mails from Shore Stars Dance Academy to stay informed and up to date with school happenings.

Attire & Additional Information…

We suggest that all classes (beginning around age 4) be a drop-off/pick-up program to help eliminate distractions, noise, crowding, and to encourage self-discipline and independence.  If you choose to stay please keep the noise to a minimum to allow teachers and dancers to concentrate and get the most out of their training. Please, however, be in the lobby at the conclusion time of your child’s class as your child’s safety is our top priority and we will not allow a child outside without a parent/guardian. Please call us or e-mail if someone new is picking up your children or if you are running late. Thank you!
