Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register for classes?

Enrollment for our 2021-2022 Dance Season is currently closed, but feel free to check out our schedule and see what kind of classes you might be interested in. Come by the Studio during classes (check our schedule page or phone 405.525.1000) to meet with the staff and take a look around. Choose your classes, fill out the Enrollment Paperwork (Spanish Enrollment Paperwork), pay your tuition and you’re in! If you’re registering for level IA, II, or IIA class, 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?

Click the links to get information about registration &  fees, and our latest schedule. All available classes are listed on the homepage of our website under “Classes.”

What level class do I belong in?

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.  If you took classes with us in a previous year, give us a call or stop by and we can give you your instructor’s level recommendations. Due to our particular studio leveling, a student can expect to spend at least 2-3 years in each level before being moved up by the instructor.

 

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 in our “Student Handbook”, listed under General Info.

 

How old do you have to be to enroll? How young?

We offer classes for dancers age 3 through 103. Nobody is too old to dance! Many of our classes include adult students. 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. 

 

I’d like to join one of your performing companies. What do I have to do?

We actually have several dance companies:  Youth & Teen Tap Companies, Youth & Senior Hip Hop Crews, Flamenco Fantastico, and the EGD Companies: Mini, Petite, Junior, Senior, and Pre-Professional, which specialize in Jazz, Ballet, Modern, Musical Theatre, Lyrical, and Contemporary. If you’d like to join, inquire at the front desk.

 

When and where do EGD students perform?

We have one major performance per year: our end of year dance Recital, which will take place the first weekend in June of 2022. The Spring Performance features the entire student body, with the exception of certain non-performing classes (ex: Leaps & Turns, Acro, Strength & Stretch).

 

How do I know when the studio is open?

We try to stay open for classes as much as possible. Our office hours are listed on the homepage of our website, under “class schedule”. Give the studio a call during office hours or check our facebook page (facebook.com/egdokc) to find out about any bad weather closings.

What safety steps is EGD taking due to COVID-19?

We at EGD always focus on our number one concern: the safety of our students, families, and staff. Due to COVID-19, we are taking multiple precautions to keep everyone safe. We are still requiring all dancers, staff, and anyone entering our building to wear a mask while inside our studio. We have masks available in adult and child sizes for those that need it. When you enter, you will be greeted by our front desk staff who will ensure that everyone is and remains masked in our building. Hand sanitizer is available in each dance room, as well as at the entrance/exit of the studio. We have changed the layout of our lobby to encourage social distancing and help traffic control. In addition to our already high-maintenance cleaning standards, often-touched areas will be sanitized even more frequently. We plan to continue all of these procedures until it becomes safe for even our youngest of students to be vaccinated.
