Q: How do I register for classes?
A: Registering for classes at TMB is easy! If you are a new student simply use our online registration form and submit your registration fee per family. If you already have an account with us you may log in to your account and use the “registration/enroll page” to select your desired classes. No dancer is guaranteed a spot in classes until a registration fee is received. Once we have received your electronic submission you will receive a confirmation email.
Q: How do I know what is the appropriate level/class for my dancer?
A: The studio director will recommend the appropriate levels/classes for every dancer. If you are unsure of your dancer’s placement, simply drop us an email or give us a call and we would be happy to answer these questions for you. Please note that some students may stay in the same level/class for multiple years.
Q: I registered, now what?
A: You will be receiving an email as we get closer to the start of the dance year. Please make sure you have taken the time to read through our studio policies. Everything you need to know about the studio is listed there. Again, we will be happy to help you if you have additional questions. We also invite you to log into your family account and familiarize yourself with our online account management system.
Q: My dancer needs new shoes and dance wear. Where do I find it and how do I know what they need?
A: You are more than welcome to explore the local retailers and online, however we do sell shoes, tights, leotards, and accessories in our studio store at very competitive and reasonable prices. You will then ensure you are not only getting quality dance wear, but that you have the appropriate items for your dancer. All of our expectations for class attire are also clearly outlined in our studio policies.
Q: Once classes begin, can I drop my child off or do I need to wait?
A: Do what feels comfortable to you. Children’s classes that are only 30 or 45 minute classes usually have parents that wait in our comfortable lobby area. Otherwise, it is fine to drop your child off and pick them up at the end of class. Please remind your children to wait in the lobby or on the front benches for pick-up.
Q: Will I be able to watch my dancer in class?
A: The studio doors will remain open for the first week of classes until everyone gets settled. After that our doors and windows remain closed as we have found over years of experience that dancers respond much better in class without the distractions of parents/siblings/and various outside factors. We do hold a parent observation week in February in which families are welcome to come in and observe classes.
Q: My dancer has missed some classes due to illness, school functions, etc. Can I get a refund?
A: No, there are no refunds for missed or canceled classes. However, we do encourage students who miss class to attend a make-up class. Please see your child’s instructor for an appropriate/suitable class to make-up their class time.
