Spring Session 2024
January 15th- May 18th 2024
Our 2024 Spring Session Registration is right around the corner!
A & B classes of our most popular toddler programs are the same level and age groups, offered twice weekly and therefore denoted by A & B (no level or age difference)
Toddler Twirl is for children ages 2-3 that want to enroll in an intro to ballet & tap class!
*Your Twirl Pack is billed at time of registration, $25
Kinder Twirl is for children ages 4-5 that are looking to continue learning the basics of ballet & tap, and are not yet ready for our Level 1 classes!
*Your Twirl Pack is billed at the time of registration, $25
Toddler Tumble Twirl is for children ages 2, 3 & 4 that want to enroll in an intro to acrobatics and tumbling class! Age 4 toddlers with approval can enroll in an Acro 1 class.
*Your Twirl Pack is billed at time of registration, $25
All of our Twirl Packs include a book, ribbon and certificate for each child! Note that Twirl Packs (Lilac for Toddler Tumble, Pink for Toddler Twirl and Yellow for Kinder Twirl) remain the same both sessions. Therefore returning dancers who already purchased the appropriate color Twirl Pack in a previous session do NOT need to re-purchase, pending they have the appropriate color pack already!
All of our Toddler classes are student only classes- meaning dancers are expected to be able to participate in the class without their parent present! Although we understand the first few weeks may be an adjustment, the end goal is go get students dancing on their own with our teachers & assistants! Please be prepared to exit the dance studio if our staff feels your dancer is ready!

CLASS LEVELING SYSTEM: General Guidelines listed, with any questions please contact the studio!
Our Acro Leveling System
At SASD, all acrobatics students receive a "Goals Rubric" within each level. This rubric provides a set of goals they must achieve in order to move up to the next level in acrobatics. These goals focus on 5 areas of training- Flexibility, Strength, Balance, Limbering & Tumbling. Because of this, all acrobatic class placement MUST go through Miss. Gabby- for new & returning students! It is vital that we place your acrobat in the correct class, so that they can flourish and move up our leveling system correctly! SAFETY IS OUR MAIN PRIORITY!
