DWMR now conveniently sells everything you need for your first day of class! Stop by the studio to choose from our selection of leotards, skirted leotards, tights and shoes!
At DWMR we like to let our dancers' creativity shine! We ask our ballerinas to dress in a leotard, tights, skirt, and ballet shoes. Any color or style is acceptable. For our tiniest ballerinas who may not have ballet shoes just yet, socks are acceptable. (Socks with grips are even better!). Boys are asked to wear a t-shirt or tank top and comfortable pants. Ballet or jazz shoes are required. Our Tutu Tap dancers should dress as they would for a ballet class. Tutu Tap dancers should bring ballet AND tap shoes to class each week.

There is a one-time registration fee of $25 per new student for classes (including Baby Bop! music), spring and summer programs, and voice & piano lessons. (This fee does not apply for special events or birthday parties).
For Fall and Winter/Spring dance sessions, a $100 non-refundable deposit will be charged at the time of enrollment, with any remaining balance due charged the first week of classes.
There is a 5% sibling discount for weekly classes applied to the second child and any additional children from the same family. Discounts cannot be combined.
Free trial classes are offered for all classes. Please email or call ahead of time to set up a trial.
NOTE: There are no trial classes for spring or summer short programs.
3 makeup classes are allowed per semester for missed classes (and do not carry over from session to session) during Fall/Winter/Spring sessions. 2 makeup classes are allowed in Summer and Baby Bop! music classes. Makeups may be taken in any other, non-wait-listed, age-appropriate class, pending instructor approval. Due to recital preparation, no make up classes will be permitted in the month of June. We do not offer additional make up classes for holidays, weather closures, or other instances in which classes do not take place.
Please email or call ahead of time to request a makeup class. Makeups may only be scheduled after the class has been missed
NOTE: makeups cannot be cancelled or changed within 24 hours of the makeup class. If you miss your makeup, you will not be able to reschedule. There are no make ups or trials during spring or summer short programs.
REFUNDS & SESSION ROLLOVER
All sales are final. Should you move out of town, you will be required to present proof of new address. Should you need to cancel your enrollment prior to the start of a class session, you will be charged a $100 deposit fee. No refunds for withdrawals from Summer classes or short programs after June 1st. In special circumstances where a class credit is issued, credit may only be used for a student within the same family for which it was originally applied.
FALL & WINTER/SPRING ENROLLMENT ROLLOVER
Students enrolled in Fall dance classes (not including Baby Bop!) will automatically be re-enrolled into their same classes in the Winter/Spring Session unless they opt out, in order to guarantee their spot(s) in the Winter/Spring Session. No less than two (2) notices will be sent to enrolled students via email reminding them of this rollover and providing opportunity to opt-out of Winter/Spring classes. Should students not opt out by the provided deadline, they will be re-enrolled and their credit card on file will be charged for the published rate of the Winter/Spring Session. Should student withdraw from the Winter/Spring session after the provided deadline, a $100 deposit fee will be subtracted from their refund.
