HI I am wondering about information on gymnastics classes and how I would go about signing my daughter up!
My girls are watching the mail box for sign up information...I think they are ready to start the year
Just wanted to say the performance tonight was incredible!! Keep up the good work, I know you will!!
What a special studio! Can't express enough what a fun dance experience we had, while our daughter and nieces were involved with Julie's Dance Studio for so many years! Everything from helping to develop self esteem, striving for perfection and working together as a team. Can't wait until my granddaughter is old enough to dance with Julie, 1 more year!!
Julie..wish you continued success.

This Year’s Theme - “Blast From The Past”

04/10/2022

Very cool moment at the Dance Studio this past week. The older competition group from 10-15 years ago watches this years competition group perform at the Studio! What started out as an Adult Tap Class grew into a reunion of students from years ago. I had no idea this was going to happen. The Adult competition class also decided to perform a number at this years 25th annual recital to be held June 3-4 at the Norway Fine Arts Theater. How appropriate that this years theme is “Blast From The Past”. Welcome back ladies!

03/17/2022

Something magical happened last night at Julie’s Top Hat Dance Studio. What started out as an Adult Tap Class with 3 previous dancers turned into a gathering of 20 previous dancers without any prompting from me. They all just heard about it by word of mouth and decided to show up for class! Im overwhelmed!

In light of the current situation I find it necessary to run the Studio as normally as possible. In order to do this we will be running via virtual learning starting Monday, March 30th. This will continue until we let you know otherwise.

Classes will run like normal -45 minutes per lesson and at your regular class time. Attendance will be taken and you will be able to ask questions and talk to us.

You will be emailed a link. Each class has a different link. I will use the email I have on file. Call or pm me if your email has changed. The important thing is that you receive the link so you can participate in class. Please watch for your email. We may have a few glitches the first week so please be patient with us. If you need to call the Studio the number is 774-5333. See you this week!

Stay Safe,

Julie

COVID-19 Precaution

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you for being part of the Julie’s Top Hat Dance Studio family. We take very seriously the responsibilities we have to our employees, our dance students and families and to our community. During the past week of events, it has become difficult to determine how best to navigate through these unchartered times we are now in. With very little formal guidelines being provided we must proceed with what we believe are the best decisions at this time.

Julie’s Top Hat has made the decision to extend our scheduled spring break by starting it one week earlier. This extended break will begin Monday, March 16, 2020 and dance will resume on Monday, March 30, 2020. We believe this extended break will allow us more time to understand the local COVID-19 situation and help increase social distancing among our community. In general, this extra time of closure will help to minimize the risk of exposure for our students and families, instructors, and help to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

We know you may have questions regarding this extended break. March tuition will remain the same as we will be scheduling make-up sessions once dance resumes. Please be patient while we make these arrangements.
We ask everyone to stay smart and stay safe. Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,

Julie’s Top Hat Dance Studio

Freshman dancer, Alexis DalSanto shares with us why she loves dancing at Julie's Top Hat Dance Studio!

Ever since I started dance when I was 5 years old, I have been drawn to it. I have made a great family at Julie’s Top Hat Dance Studio and they have been a huge part of my life. When I dance, I forget about everything in my life that is stressing me out and just have fun. Being in dance has helped me gain coordination which has helped with my other sports I do during the year. I am so grateful to have a place to go to, to let it all go and let loose with my friends. Can’t wait to start this year!!

General information

Our Facility Our state-of-the-art facility includes a high quality dance flooring system used by long list of professional dance companies throughout the United States, including the Metropolitan Ballet in Rockford, MD and Joffrey School in New York. Our studios our equipped with first-rate sound system technology, incorporate acoustical foam to absorb noise, and include special lighting effects to promote a more enjoyable experience for our dancers. Classes Classes meet 45 minutes per week. The cost is $9 per class. Holidays generally follow school schedules. Cancellations will be announced on WJNR and WMIQ, or you may call the Studio at (906) 774-5333 for a recorded announcement. If you are traveling from outside of the surrounding area, please use your own discretion. Payment You may pay by the month or by the semester. Monthly payments are due the first week of each month. We accept cash, check, credit card (VISA or MASTERCARD), and also offer AUTO PAY, a hassle free payment method that automatically deducts the monthly payment from your checking or savings account the first week of each month. Dance Attire Students must be able to move freely and proper body alignment must be able to be observed by the instructor at all times. Acceptable dance attire includes: proper shoes (tap or jazz, black will be needed for recital), leotards, tights, unitards, biketards, sweater wraps, or ballet skirt. T-shirts and shorts are acceptable if tucked in and body alignment can be observed. Jeans, jean shorts, or sweatshirts are not acceptable. THIS POLICY WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED! Shoes I personally fit students for shoes the first week of class. I generally fit shoes 1/2 to 1 full size larger so the student will be able to wear the shoes throughout the entire dance season. Although I advise that you purchase shoes through the Studio, it is not mandatory. Any shoes purchased through the Studio must be paid for at time of ordering. Class Observation Parents may observe their child's class twice a year. This is a normal class and the standard fee will be applied. The date(s) will be announced and included on the Studio Calendar of Events. Observing class at any other time is prohibited. Costumes We will be selecting recital costumes in late November/December. We do so at this time to ensure costumes are received by recital time. We will meet during regularly scheduled class times. This day is considered part of the normal dance curriculum and the standard class fee will apply. A separate costume will be required for each class or number your child is in. All students will be in a finale, which requires a separate costume. Costumes typically cost between $45 and $58. You have my assurance to keep costume costs as low as possible. We offer complimentary costume alterations to get the best possible fit while saving you time and money. Pictures Pictures will be taken a few weeks before the recital. The date and time will be announced and included in the Studio Calendar of Events. Pictures are optional. Perfect Attendance If a child attends every class, he or she will receive a perfect attendance award. Withdrawal Any intention to withdraw from class must be provided by the fifteenth of the last month of lessons. If a student withdraws after the 15th of the month, fees for the following month will be applied and due in full. Charges will not be prorated if the child chooses not to attend any lesson after the withdrawal notification is received. Class Books Each student will receive a dance book at the beginning of the dance year. You must bring the book to all classes. The book is updated each week with lessons and payment acknowledgement. Other Please feel free to address your questions, comments, or concerns with me whenever it does not interfere with class times. I am always interested in addressing your concerns and improving the quality of my dance education program. Lesson fees and costume fees are non-refundable. I will personally mail a Studio Calendar of Events to your home address on file that lists all pertinent dates and times.
