Please do not park or leave your car unattended in front of the studio. IF YOUR DANCER IS NOT WAITING IN PLAIN SITE, DO NOT STOP IN FRONT OF THE STUDIO. Proceed to the parking area, park your car and walk to the studio. If you have a little one in the car, drive around the back parking lot, or even better, the shopping center, only stopping when your dancer is waiting in plain site and ready to load and go. The curb is painted red, per the fire code, and needs to remain clear. The crossover period from one class to another can be very busy as families come and go. One parked car can be a safety hazard. People need to be able to safely navigate their way to their cars and with a single car parked in the red, traffic is reduced to one lane, forcing pedestrians to go around the car, directly into the one lane of traffic. All too often we see cars waiting or left unattended as parents run in the studio searching for their dancers.

We’ve changed our dance software and the new Parent Portal is awesome! There are a lot of new features, like a dance calendar, online store, payment manager, studio shared files and more! Registration is even easier as the classes your dancer is eligible to take will be listed in your new Parent Portal. If you don’t see the class you are looking for, be sure to email us as it is likely due to age requirements (for Fall birthdays). We are here to help! You can log into the new Parent Portal by clicking the green “Sign In” toward the bottom of this page.

Registration for the Fall Session is ongoing and classes are filling up! Parents, please check your email as a link and temporary password to register in our new system was emailed on Friday, 5/17. You can also try reseting your password via the new 4SDA Parent login page.
Should you have any issues accessing the new system or registering, please Contact Us!

Stop by the studio to complete your back-to-school checklist in one stop!

Log into your 4SDA Account by clicking the green button above. On the home page of your Parent Portal click on the Manage Students icon. You will see a listing of your Family Members (students) and if they are registered in a class, you will see it listed under Classes.

Please check out our Dress Code Page to see the dress requirements, listed by class level. Approved dance wear may be purchased at the local dance store, Dressed 2 Dance.

Dressed 2 Dance is the neighborhood dance apparel store and they stock all of our approved division leotards and dance dresses.Tell them your dancer’s class name (level) and they will do the rest! They have ballet slippers, tap shoes, tights….basically anything your dancer will need.

Feel free to Contact Us with any questions!

PLEASE NOTE: The Saturday 12/07 rehearsal at 4SDA will be in costume so we can see all of the costumes on the dancers for any final alterations. The Dress Rehearsal at CCAE on Wednesday 12/11 is Mandatory. All dancers must attend the dress rehearsal in order to perform. Please read through the rehearsal postings for all of the details!

For the safety of the dancers and to avoid audience distraction, photography and video recording of any kind is not allowed during the performances. We have seen dancers lose their timing and audience members stand and / or hold bright devices that distract other audience members. PLEASE! Your dancers have worked hard in class and during the rehearsals. Enjoy the amazing moments with your own eyes! We partner with professional photographers and videographers that will capture those special moments at reasonable prices! The theatre ushers will ask anyone they see taking photos or recording to put away their devices, so please sit back and enjoy the show!

– Rehearsals are outside of normal class times, primarily on Saturday afternoons.
