What to wear on the trial class?
For a trial dance class, we recommend that your child wear clothes that allow comfortable movement. Although ballet shoes are required for ballet class, for a trial class you can wear tennis shoes / soft shoes or bare feet.
What is the difference between the Creative Movement I & CM United Class?
There isn’t one! Both classes cover the same content, they are just offered on different days to accommodate families with different schedules. Saturday tends to be our busiest day, so Creative Movement is separated into a 3-4 year old class and a 5-6 year old class, to help us maintain lower ratios and offer individualized instruction. Wednesdays aren’t as crowded, so we can combine our 3-6 year olds on that day and still maintain a small class size.
Does BOW offer free tickets to performances for families in the program?
No. As a non – profit organization, free tickets are not available to families. Ballet On Wheels relies on its revenue to maintain our studio, pay our staff and to provide high quality programming and performances.
Can I sit in on my child’s class each week?
Parents are welcome to sit in and observe their child’s first class. After your initial observation, classes are closed. We want to provide a distraction free environment for your child and his or her classmates.
Will my child progress to a new level each year?
Sometimes the class name may not change each year, but the group of students will progress in that level / class. It is normal for students to remain in class levels for multiple years. Dance classes are typically not like regular academic classes where you are promoted from year to year.
My daughter is 3, how many classes will she take?
Our three year olds take only one class per week.
Do you offer Summer Dance Camps?

Why should my child participate in multiple classes per week?
As student’s progress, opportunities arise for them to take multiple classes during the week to continue to hone in on their dance training in various genres.
When will I get to see my child perform? Do you offer any additional performances throughout the year?
Dance school students participate in the “Snow Lilly” Holiday performance each December and our annual year end dance production. Yes, we also offer additional performance opportunities.
Do you offer scholarships?
Yes, we do. “Dream to Dance” Scholarship Auditions are held each fall for students ages 12 & up. No dance experience is required, just a passion to dance.
