Hi DWK families,

A few updates as our dance season continues and as we begin to approach spring performances and events.

Parking & Drop-Off/Pick-Up

Our parking lot can be busy and harder to navigate during the hours that overlap with our neighbouring businesses. If you are dropping off or picking up your dancer and there are spots available at the studio entrance please use those spots before parking in the middle of the lot. Parents are also asked to walk younger dancers to and from the studio doors in order to ensure their safety in the parking lot.


Dancers have been trying on our performance costumes over the past month and classes will begin taking costumes home this week! Please be sure to store the costume in a safe location in your home. The costume is only to be worn for picture day and performances (not for weekly classes).

Costume rental is included in your tuition fees. Costumes are the responsibility of dancers and their families until after the recital in May. A costume replacement fee of $90 will be charged to your account if the costume is lost, damaged, or is not returned after recital.

2023 Picture Day

Our studio picture day will be happening on Saturday, March 4, 2023. Group photos will be taken of all of the performance classes which includes Creative Movement, Creative Movement + Tap, Dance Foundations, and Primary through Senior classes as well as the Performance Ensemble. This year’s class and individual photos will be taken by Stafford Studios. Details on scheduling, order process, etc will be coming soon. 

If you have any conflicts on Saturday, March 4th and would like to request your dancer’s pictures to be in either the morning or afternoon please let the studio know by no later than Thursday, February 9. We do our best to accommodate any schedule requests that are made in advance but once the schedule is sent out it is considered final and will not be adjusted.
