NEW HEIGHTS DANCE FESTIVAL

  • There will be a festival fee charged to your account of $90 per student on February 1st, 2024 to cover related expense

DRESS CODE

  • There is a dress code for all classes in order to set students up for success - CLICK ON ANY PICTURE BELOW FOR DETAILS

  • New Heights Dance stocks leotards, tights, and shoes for purchase in our studio. Please visit our "shop dance wear" page for some more options

  • Hair should be pulled back and out of the student's face for all classes

  • Students should not arrive to class in their clothes from school - they should have a change of clothes for dance- even if their school wear loosely fits into a dress code requirement. It is important for them to feel mentally prepared for dance class, and part of that is being in dance specific attire.

  • For summer camps, please send students in clothes they can comfortably move in (including doing tumbling). Leotard and tights, or athletic wear with leggings are great options. 

STUDENT DROP OFF/PICK UP & PARKING

  • Please drop off and pick-up your student within 10 minutes of their class time. 

  • The entrance is on the south (right) side of the building. As soon as you walk around the corner, you'll see an entrance through a fence- that's us! 
  • The outdoor waiting area is provided for parents to wait during class if you wish to stay
  • You will pick your students up from the side patio as well. 
  • Parking is available directly in front of the building.   You may also utilize the church lot across the street - park anywhere in the lot - they will not close the gates or tow!  You can also park along Keyes Ave (again, the church will not tow) - OR after 6pm you can park in front of the gates at the tackle shop next door. Please plan ahead for parking!
