I know that right now we’re really up to our ears in recital planning, but behind the scenes we’re also prepping for next year’s classes as well. That may seem a little crazy, but when recital is all done for the year and the last piece of scenery has been lovingly tucked away, we’ll only be about 3 weeks from needing to send out a finalized class schedule (and we have Nationals for the Competition Team right before that!). That’s why we start pre-registration soon, and I take advantage of it every year, even though I’m part of the staff. The biggest reason for that? Input into the class schedule.
When you pre-register for next year’s classes you get to let us, your DC staff, know what works best for your family as far as days and times during the week, and what classes your dancers will be taking. This is a huge bonus for both the staff and our students’ families because it ensures that not only will we have enough classes to accommodate next year’s students, but that we schedule them in a way that will fit into as many schedules as possible.
That’s not the only reason to pre-register though. Your pre-registration will go toward next year’s registration fee and a portion of your first month’s tuition, so you’ll be a little bit ahead of the game. Depending on when you pre-register, there are even coupons to the Dancewear Boutique, and discounts on the first month’s tuition and summer class registration too, not to mention a pre-registration gift!
Pre-registration offers a lot of benefits to those who take advantage, and it there are a couple of stages. Priority Pre-Registration is the one that offers the most benefits and is happening soon, so make sure to let us know when is best for your dancer to attend classes and enjoy the perks that come with it! If you have any questions, feel free to ask any of the studio staff. We’ll be happy to help!
