Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register for classes?
Check out our schedule and choose the classes you’re interested in. Come by the Studio during classes (check our schedule page or phone 525.1000) to meet with the staff and take a look around. Choose your classes, fill out the registration form, pay your fees and you’re in! If you’re registering for intermediate or advanced classes, you will need to arrange an audition with the director or teacher to ensure that you’re enrolled in the proper level of study.
Where can I find a list of classes, fees, and schedules?
Do I belong in a beginning, intermediate or advanced class?
Good question! Each dancer, each dance school is different. The best way for us to place dancers in the appropriate classes is for you to take a class. The teacher will evaluate the student and recommend placement. Since it’s both frustrating and can lead to injury to dance at a technical level you’re not prepared for, it’s important for you and the rest of the class that every dancer to be placed at the appropriate level.
What kinds of shoes and clothing are required?
Students are required to dress in the class uniform. Details on the dress code are available for each type of class listed under “Dances” on the homepage of our website.
How old do you have to be to enroll? How young?
We offer classes for dancers age 3 through adult. Nobody is too old to dance! Many classes include adult students and we have an entire adult division. Dancing is a great way to have fun and get a great workout at the same time. We even have several “just for fun” classes where students will not perform, so don’t let a touch of stage fright keep you from dancing. Please note that students must be at least 15 years old to enroll in the Latin dance classes.
I’d like to join one of your performing companies. What do I have to do?
We actually have several dance companies: Tap Co. Flamenco Fantastico, the Hip Hop Crew, Spirit of Mexico (Mexican Folkloric Company), our Youth, Junior and Senior Everything Goes Dance Companies that specializes in Jazz, Modern, Musical Theater and Ballet and our Production/Touring Company. If you’d like to join, inquire at the front desk.
When and where do EGD students perform?
We have one major performances per year: our Spring Performance on the first weekend in June. The Spring Performance features the entire student body, with the exception of certain non-performing classes (ex: Leaps & Turns, adult ballet).
