In order for your child to get the full benefit of classes, it is important that teachers be able to devote all class time to teaching. If you have questions/comments, please leave a message with the office or email the instructor. We are interested and do care. Please email the office and your email will be sent to your child’s teacher. All teachers are available to discuss your child’s progress and goals. As a courtesy to our parents, information will be emailed regularly and will contain important information regarding upcoming events and payments that are due. Please pay careful attention to these newsletters, as this is our way of communicating with you. The office staff is always willing to help students when they have questions or concerns. Please do not hesitate to approach them.
For your convenience, BDT sells ballet shoes (leather and canvas), tap shoes, and dance paws. These may be purchased at the time your child registers and throughout the year.
In case of inclement weather, please watch for an email and/or text from the studio. The studio does not always close in accordance with area schools. BDT does not prorate tuition for weather cancellations, but makeup classes may be scheduled.
