Attendance & Punctuation

We are passionate about ensuring that each dancer feels valued, engaged and enhances their joy for dance.

Our happiness guarantee. We want your child to be surrounded by dancers and teachers who are passionate about dance and excited to be there.  If for any reason the class is not what your child was looking for and they have been attending class regularly and making an effort.  We will recommend an available class that may better suit your child or we will refund you your money.

Costumes

We ensure that costumes are affordable, tasteful and age appropriate.
Instructors will take measurements in November to ensure that we have all costumes ordered by December and in our hands by Spring for Pictures and Recital.

To save on costs, we do not order custom costumes.  We take the measurements gathered and order costumes that are a best fit but not always a perfect fit.
If you have any concerns about costume fit, we are happy to offer suggestions, but alteration fees are not the responsibility of Twirl Dance.

Once costumes are ordered, there are no returns.  Parents are responsible for final payment.

Costume Fees (per class):
$45 Costume Deposit - Due at Registration
Up to $35 Costume Balance - Due in March

Location

In the Fall of 2018 we moved into our beautiful new location at the Chestermere Recreation Centre.  Enter the building at the main/office entrance (under the Chestermere Regional Recreation Centre sign).  Take the staircase between the sliding glass doors.  At the top of the stairs you will turn left to a set of double doors.  Enter the doors and halfway down the long corridor you will find our new Twirl Dance Studio.

 

 Parent Night

December 9th - 13th *All Classes

 

 

Parent-Guided Classes

So what does Parent-Guided mean?

Parent-guided classes mean that a parent/guardian must remain present and participate in the dance activities.  Parents help to engage their child in the activities.
Little dancers love sharing this time with their favourite person - you!
Sometimes it is necessary for younger siblings to attend and this is okay, but since this is a parent-guided class please be prepared to focus most of your attention on the child participating in the class.

Please be sure to add no-reply@dancestudio-pro.com to your contacts or safe list to ensure you receive all of our emails and they do not end up in your junk mail.  If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact the owner or your instructor.  We will do our best to answer parent questions at the beginning or end of class but since the classes run back-to-back, this window of time will be very brief.  The best way to connect with us would be by email.
