JSOD follows the holiday schedules of Baylor University and most Waco area schools.  When one-day holidays fall on dance days, your dancer may come to another class closest to his/her level that week.  JSOD does not issue refunds for holidays.  When a student is sick or misses class due to another schedule conflict, he/she can make up that class on another day in a class closest to his/her level.  JSOD does not issue refunds when a student misses a class due to  being sick or other schedule conflicts.

Dance Recital

Our dance recital will be held on June 14-15 at Midway Performing Arts Center.  The studio will hold extra afternoon rehearsals the week of the recital.  Dress rehearsal is on Saturday for the entire cast.  We have 4 shows, afternoon and evening shows on both Saturday and Sunday.  Students ages 3 and 4 only perform in one afternoon show. The shows are filmed and parents have the opportunity to sign up for a DVD of the show at the studio and at recital.  We do charge a recital fee per student that helps cover the cost of renting the fine arts facility and the cost of producing a large scale show.
