Frequently Asked Questions

When is the dance recital?2019-10-03T15:01:25-05:00

The recital is at the end of the second semester of dance, typically in late May, early June. The exact dates will be announced in our monthly FOOTNOTES and on our main Recital Page. When dates are announced, we suggest reserving those dates to ensure that you are available. Rehearsal times and more details will be communicated in the Spring semester.

Are there any dance class options for adults?2019-06-13T12:12:36-05:00

At this time, we do not offer any ROOTS adult dance classes. However, we host Area54 HipHop classes on Tuesdays (Beginner Hip Hop) and Wednesdays (Advanced Hip Hop) at 7:30pm. Check them out here

Our friends at b.fab.fitness also offer some amazing adult fitness classes at the studio! Check them out here.

How much does recital cost?2019-10-03T14:59:27-05:00

Recital participation requires one costume fee per routine (ranging from $80-$90 + tax) and one Performance Fee (about $100) per participant. For your convenience, these fees are split up throughout the year. The recital will also require the purchase of tickets.

How do I know which class is right for me?2019-06-07T14:01:17-05:00

The first step to determining the appropriate class for your dancer is to find the appropriate age division, Toddler (ages 2.5. – 3), Preschool I (ages 3-4), Preschool II (ages 4-5), Mini (ages 6-8), Junior (ages 9-11), Teen (ages 12-14), and Senior (ages 15-18). Age is determined by the student’s age as of August 15th. Open classes require no dance experience. Placement classes are more advanced for dancers with previous experience. For placement classes, the ROOTS dance staff would love to set up a quick placement meeting with your dancer. To schedule please contact dance@rootsacademy.net.

What if the class I want to enroll in is full and waitlisted?2019-06-07T14:08:09-05:00

If the class you would like to enroll in is full, please register for the waitlist. This will put you in line to be notified if space becomes available in the class. When a spot in the class becomes available we will contact you and confirm that you are still interested. You will not be charged tuition until a spot for your dancer is guaranteed.

Can my student decide to participate in recital after the deadline?2019-05-19T16:21:56-05:00

Please contact the dance office to inquire about your specific situation. We will do our best to try and accommodate the request, but we cannot guarantee a yes due to the many factors that go into recital preparations: costume availability, time to learn the recital choreography, student placement, etc.

What if my dancer has more than one routine in the recital?2019-10-03T14:58:44-05:00

If you have more than one routine in Recital, you will have a Costume Fee per routine. Payment plans are available for families with more than one Costume Fee. You can contact the dance office for more information!

If I miss a dance class, can I make it up?2019-06-09T21:55:44-05:00

Sure! During the months of September through January a make-up class may be scheduled for a missed Toddler, Preschool, or Mini level class up to one month after the missed class. Students are welcome to make up their class during another class time at their same level or below. Simply email us at dance@rootsacademy.com to let us know that you will be out for your class to schedule a make-up class. After January, make-up classes are not offered due to recital preparation.

Who participates in recital?2019-10-03T15:00:44-05:00

Do I have to participate in the dance recital?2019-10-03T15:01:44-05:00

All dancers are encouraged to participate, but recital participation is not required. All recital fees will be communicated and posted in the month of October. Because of this, Families will need to opt out of Recital before October. Dancers that choose not to participate will still be able to participate fully in their class and will still learn the recital dance. Any dancer that joins after this time will still be allowed to participate in recital, pending costume availability and may be subject to added fees.

Are costume and performance fees refundable?2019-06-07T14:02:53-05:00

Unfortunately, fees that have been paid have already been budgeted into the planning and production of the recital. As a result, we are unable to refund costume and participation fees. No exceptions.
