End of the Year Info!


Dear PPD Parents,


Our staff hopes that your family is safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. New challenges are surrounding our children in many ways, and having to adapt to virtual classroom learning is one of them. Our PPD teachers have tried very hard to bring some type of normalcy to your children these past few weeks and will continue to do so moving forward. It’s been wonderful to see our dancers together in a virtual zoom world learning together. The positive feedback from parents means the world to our staff, we thank you for your support.


We are asking our families to join their classes on the Band App (if you have not done so already). This app is a great way to stay connected, stay informed, ask questions and have access to PPD classes. If you haven’t received an invitation to join the app, send an email to


All families that pre-paid May tuition, your refunds have been mailed. If you have not received your check, please call us at 392-5355. I am asking families that have not paid costume balances or owe past due tuition through March, to pay in full by May 23. This can be done by calling the studio at 392-5355, our new hours are listed below. Please note, your account must be current to participate in the upcoming session.


As we move forward with our dance year, we will continue to be faced with obstacles. I want you to know our staff will follow all CDC recommendations and guidelines. Your child's safety is our main concern. We will be updating information pertaining to the studio as it changes. Also, we will be sending a short survey in the coming weeks asking for feedback and suggestions.


Many of our families have reached out to our staff with questions about recital and summer camp. We are pleased to let you know that we have finalized a year-end plan! I hope the following schedule is workable for you and your family. I am sorry for any inconvenience it may cause. 

  • We will continue to offer free dance classes via Zoom through Friday, May 22nd.
