Summer is on, and things are heating up at the studio! Summer classes and camps are underway this month, and dancers have already begun working on their dances for the new season. In August, we'll be hosting three Open House events, so be sure to read below to stay in step with PADC!
Princess Dance Camp
If you have a budding dancer age 5-8, come share the fun and excitement at Princess Dance Camp! Children ages 5-8 will explore tap, ballet and jazz while participating in a variety of activities such as gymnastics, arts and crafts and make-up. On the Thursday of your dancer’s session, families are invited to come to the studio at 12:45 PM for a special performance.
Princess Dance Camp will take place July 29-August 1 from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM at the studio. Cost for each session is $85. All campers need to bring a water bottle and a packed lunch each day. Space is limited. Call 740-368-8800 now to register!

Spread the word, PADC offers a fabulous referral program. To thank you for the many referrals we receive, PADC would like to reward those clients who pass along our good name to their friends and neighbors. Any current student who refers someone new to our studio for classes will receive $10 off their tuition for that month. The new student also will receive $10 off their tuition for the first month. To make things even better, every five new student referrals you make, you also will receive a FREE COSTUME DEPOSIT, in addition to your $10 tuition discount for that month. To be eligible, the new student must write your name down on the referral line of our registration card and sign up for at least one month of classes. Previous students do not count toward referrals. We love all of our referrals and thank you for speaking so highly of PADC to your friends and neighbors. We appreciate it!

Registration is open for summer classes for all ages. Summer is a great time to try new classes before a new dance season starts. Summer session runs July 9-August 1. Check out the summer schedule here on the website, and call the office to register!
Recital videos are now available! Please click on the link in the main menu titled Recital Videos. You will need to click Accept first, then enter your password to download the videos. Your password may be obtained from the office. You will want to refer to your recital program to ensure you download the correct video of your dancer’s performance(s). Please note, these are very large files and take several minutes each to download.
Families are now able to check their studio account through our software program, Studio Director. You can access it from the main menu here on the studio website. Click on Account Login. That will open in a new tab. The first time you log on, click Forgot Password, and that will walk you through setting up a login with the email you have on file with the studio. That is very important – if you use a different email than what the studio has on file, it will not work. Once you are logged in, you can see your student’s class list, your current balance due, balance due within 30 days and also your last payment.
To make things easier for our parents, the studio offers an autopay option for tuition and costumes. This is a free service, and you can have it drafted from any credit card or check card. This is a stress free alternative so you don’t have to worry about remembering to make the payment and also guarantees you will never receive a late fee. Please check with the office if you are interested.
Watch for our studio’s monthly and weekly themes beginning in the fall. This is a fun way to incorporate different topics, points of interest and fun days that the students will look forward to and enjoy. All the classes at the studio will be involved and participate in the themes. Check the bulletin board and Facebook to find out the theme of each week.
There is no credit given for missed classes. If a student misses a class because of illness, family/school obligation or if the weather is bad, the studio will offer a make-up class. Make-up classes are the student’s responsibility and are strongly encouraged. Students have four weeks to make-up the class that they missed. Check with your child’s teacher or the front desk as to which class would be appropriate for them to join for the make-up.
Please check the bins under the bench in the front foyer for any missing items. There are separate bins for items such as water bottles, shoes and clothing. Please remember to label all dance shoes and bags with student’s name. If not claimed, these items will be donated at the end of the season.
