What do I bring with me? Water bottle, your mat (or borrow one). You can change clothes in one of our two bathrooms.
How soon should I arrive before class? No more than 15 minutes to fill out a waiver and or pay for class.
What should I wear? Comfy clothing. This does not mean super expensive yoga gear. You can wear shorts or joggers. Anything that is comfortable is great.
Im not flexible, never done yoga. Should I still come to class? Of course you should. We are not flexible yoga teachers if we don't come to class. Sure, some days it is hard getting to class but a regular routine is good for us all. Become more flexible by finding flexibility in your schedule and showing up.
Classes begin in September and will run through mid-June. We will also hold summer dance camps, intercession camps, workshops and more. Dance class consists of 45 min Ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop classes, unless otherwise noted. Students will need both ballet and tap shoes, any color is acceptable; however, these need not be purchased immediately. If your dancer is signed up for a jazz/hip-hop class, they will need comfortable clothing and sneakers/jazz shoes. Girls typically wear leotards, tights/leggings, pink (or any color) ballet shoes and black patent tap shoes. Boys typically wear black athletic pants, comfortable t-shirt, sneakers/tap shoes (patent or not)/jazz shoes. We do not require a certain color of leotard, clothing or dance shoe. Wear what is comfortable.
Tuition is based on a yearly dance season (not a monthly tuition); the yearly fee is broken down into payments for your convenience. Tuition is not prorated unless your dancer starts classes mid-month. *Make payment online through the Parent Portal at www.downwarddogdance.com
*You have the option to sign up for automatic payments charged to your credit/debit card.
*To mail in your dance payment: send check to PO BOX 74101 RICHMOND VA 23236.

Please peek or arrive a few minutes before class is over.
