Welcome to CSC Dance!

We offer a wide range of classes for students of all ages and hope your child will dance with us for years to come. At CSC we believe ALL kids can learn to dance and should have the opportunity to go as far as they wish.

Our program is focused around building a love of movement and performance through proper development and technique.

  • Our instructors are devoted to building a love of dance and movement! Unlike many dance studios, our class ratios are low, and our lessons are structured but not strict.
  • Our dance curriculum is designed to develop skills and build confidence for performing – on stage and in life.
  • All classes also develop choreographed routines for a December Showcase and an Annual June Recital.
  • We’ll also let you know about additional opportunities to dance throughout the year.
  • Classes run throughout the year for all students. Membership is encouraged, but not required.

Please read the following and help our instructors maintain effective teaching environments for our dancers.

Class Policies

  • Parents please make sure your child is escorted to and from our dance studios by a responsible adult.
  • Parents choosing to stay in the facility must remain outside the studio.
  • We appreciate guests keeping noise to a minimum while waiting in the lobby.
  • For safety and to avoid disruptions to the rest of the class, late students may not be allowed to fully participate in all class activities.
  • All payments are non-refundable, including all recital costs.
  • Make-ups are allowed once per month. We require advanced notice with the front desk. Be aware that make-up classes may focus on dance styles not taught in your regular class.
  • Classes with low enrollment may be closed and students moved to another appropriate class.

Class Etiquette for All Students

  • Keep socializing to a minimum, especially in more advanced classes.
  • Please NO TALKING during warm up.
  • Respect all teachers and fellow students; students may not critique other students or poke fun.
  • It is proper to thank the teacher at the end of each class.
  • No food, drinks, or chewing gum in class!
  • Arrive on time for all classes, prepared and in proper attire.
  • If you arrive late, put on your dance shoes before entering the studio; do not distract others from learning when you enter. Follow instructions.
  • Attendance is very important to ensure that your body and mind retains what is being taught. This is true ESPECIALLY AS WE PREPARE FOR A RECITAL!
General Rules:

  • Students should be dressed in clothes appropriate for the class they are attending. Ask your instructor for guidance.
  • No jeans or jewelry. Hair must be pulled up or out of the face.
  • All students are required to purchase their own dance shoes.


  • Clothes should be form fitting. Preferred preschool attire is dance leotard and tights. Level 1 & up: all students wear pink tights and black leotard.
  • Tutu and skirts are allowed. If wearing a skirt, please have it fall above the knee so instructors can see the dancer’s knees and feet.
  • Ballet shoes are required.
  • Long hair needs to be pulled up and secured so it remains out of the face.


  • Tap shoes are required. Basics and younger: any black tap shoe (we suggest you purchase shoes with a snap or button, or replace the tie.) Tap 1 & up: jazz style tap shoes.
  • Clothes must be easy to move in so it won’t restrict movement. (No jeans.)
  • Suggested clothing: leggings, jazz or yoga pants and leotard. No pants that drag on the floor; instructors prefer to see the ankle.


  • Jazz shoes are required.
  • Same clothing requirements as Tap.

Hip Hop:

  • Clothes should be easy to move in so it won’t restrict movement. No jeans!
  • Shoes should be athletic/tennis shoes with non-marking soles.

Thank You!

Winter Showcase

At our December Winter Showcase, parents get an opportunity to enjoy a show and see the progress of their child. Costumes are simple and admission to this recital is free (there is a small charge per participant to cover our expenses for staffing and facility rental). Students get an opportunity to perform in front of an audience in a small venue.

Next Winter Showcase: December 15, 2018

Open to all current CSC Dance students. Our December Recital is more informal than our Summer Recital. There will not be a door charge, however to cover our costs we will charge $10 to each dancer’s account the second half of October. Family and friends are welcome!

Once again this year we are accepting donations at our shows to benefit…
