We typically hold our recital on the first Saturday in June.

If your child is 3-6 years old, we recommend that your child take the Tippy Toes, Tappy Feet class to gain a strong dance foundation. We also encourage your dancer to add the Bop & Tumble class to gain strong performance skills.

If your child is 7 and up, they may take as many classes as they want. Being well versed in several styles is always a good idea. Each genre of dance is a separate class. We highly recommend that all dancers take ballet, as it is the foundation for all dance, and will allow your child to be successful in whatever styles they desire later on. We are happy to make recommendations. Please contact us.

For your trial class, we recommend your child wears comfortable clothing – leggings and a t-shirt – something easy to move and stretch in. We have a swap box of shoes that your child can borrow for their trial class. Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your trial class so that we have time to find shoes.

Please click HERE for class the appropriate shoes and attire for each class. Once registered, these are the shoes and clothing that your child will need. We recommend ordering from our dance wear online store. Stop by the studio any night during regular hours to get sized for shoes.

We take registrations all year long. Participation in the recital is dependent upon costume availability. It is best to start in September as the students are learning technique and building skills throughout the entire year.

We have video cameras in all of our classrooms. The video feeds are on the T.V. in the lobby. This is a great way to see your child without disrupting the class.

Our teachers are all wonderful, caring individuals. If they feel like your child needs you they will come and get you. Please allow our teachers to build a relationship with your child, comfort her when she misses you, and help her to gain independence. It takes some students 4-6 weeks to really get used to the class.

Should the teachers have any concerns about your child, they will share them with you. It is very normal for little ones to do nothing at times, to cry when you leave, to sit and watch, or to have difficulty staying on their spot. Our teachers are trained in toddler behavior and know exactly how to handle all of these situations. Please communicate with the teacher if you have any questions or concerns about what your child is doing in class. 99.9% of the time it is normal behavior.

Give your child 4-6 weeks to get used to coming to class. If he/she is coming home and practicing what is learned in class, that is a great sign!

It is normal to feel overwhelmed when you first start a class. Give your son or daughter time to adjust. Talk to the teacher and share your concerns. Most of the time the feelings are normal and will level out once your child gets comfortable. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. If we all feel like your child is not enjoying the class, has not gained confidence and improved in his/her skills we offer a 60-day-happiness guarantee.

Features and Benefits

Small class sizes

To ensure your child receives individualized instruction, we purposefully limit classes to no more than 15 students for ages 7 and up, and no more than 12 students for the Tippy Toes and Tappy Feet classes.

Personal relationships

Positive relationships are our first priority. Everyone who enters the studio is greeted with a smile. We take time to get to know the names of each student and their families. Our door is always open and we love it when you stop in to chat.

Professional Educators

All instructors hold degrees in education and/or professional dance experience.

We only hire people who we would trust with our own children.

Appropriate and Modest

Music is always appropriate for families and kids, costumes are tasteful and modest and choreography is developmentally appropriate.  We believe kids should be kids for as long as possible and we do what is right, not what is popular.

Family Friendly Environment

Parents are welcome to stay and get some work done at in the lobby, watch their dancer’s class on the TV, or get to know some of the other parents. Bring your younger kids – we don’t mind!

Growth Mindset

We help each child grow and develop as a performer at his/her own pace. Our choreography is created to highlight each student’s strengths while also building their technical skills. We strive to make learning fun, yet challenging.

We Build Confidence

S5DC works to help each child gain self confidence. There are so many negative messages coming at our kids daily. We believe kids need a safe place to grow, learn, and create. Our kids leave us with the confidence to take on the world!

Watch Classes

There is a camera in each studio. Sit in the comfort of the lobby and watch your child’s class. You can keep up on what is happening in class while enjoying a cup of coffee. Watch your child grow in technique and confidence.


We believe every child should have the opportunity to share their love of dance. We offer all students, not just company members, the opportunity to dance in the Christmas parades, volunteer at Retirement homes, dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, and participate in studio social events and Master Class workshops.
