      DANCERS AGES 3-6 
Recital week is a long week for all dancers. With that in mind, all Creative Movement and PreBallet/Tiny Tap dancers can leave the recital after their second dance on stage if they don't mind missing the finale dance which includes all the dancers. Parents need to make sure they tell their class mom that they are taking their dancer home early.

Dance shoes are mandatory when attending dance class. If dancers don't have dance shoes, they may be purchased through the dance studio. Please remember to put your dancers name in their dance shoes!! If you ordered dance shoes on one of our registration nights, the shoe will be available for pick up at your first dance class. If you still need to order shoes, please bring your dancer to class early so they can get fitted. All shoes need to be paid for when orders are placed.


When dancers for the Pre-Ballet/Tiny Tap and Level 1 classes come to class please make sure that both sets of their shoes have their names in them and please make sure their shoes are in a bag when they come to class each week. This will help lessen the confusion of whose shoes are whose since most dancers have the same shoes.

Parents are welcome to wait in the waiting room at the dance studio while their dancer is at class but we ask you to make sure siblings aren't running in and out of the dance room while classes are scheduled. This is a distraction to the dancers and the instructors. Also, if you bring a snack up to the studio please be sure to clean up after yourself and your kids so there isn't food or trash left behind. Thanks in advance for your help!

Throughout the dance season, please be sure to read the monthly newsletters. They always have lots of important information. All newsletters will be emailed to everyone who put an email address on their registration form. Please email us ( if you didn't receive a copy of this month's newsletter by email. Extra newsletters are always available in our waiting area at the dance studio. All of the information is posted here on our website too. You can also find us on facebook.

Please feel free to call (715) 292-3567 or email ( if at anytime throughout the dance year you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Monthly payment reminders will be posted in the waiting room at the dance studio. All payments may be given to the dance instructors or mailed to ASOD 1310 Vaughn Ave Ashland, WI 54806.

              LOST & FOUND
