Welcome! We excitedly preparing for the studio to reopen in June. We miss you all! Please make sure you read through this newsletter to keep you up to date and informed of everything going on at PADC! We look forward to us all dancing together again very soon!


PADC would like to say congratulations to all the students who have completed pre-school, elementary school and middle school and will be beginning new adventures in new buildings in the fall. We also want to say a special congratulations to Jordan Sandusky, our sole graduating senior! All the best, Jordan! Great things are ahead!

Online Resources

PADC has several online resources for students. The Online Learning button in the header of the site will direct you to fun activities, crafts and ways to stay active and dancing at home. Here you also will find the schedule for online classes held via Zoom.

In the main menu of the site, you will see Recital Prep. This page contains the online class schedule, conditioning videos, warm up videos and recital tutorial videos. This page is password protected. The password was emailed to you by the studio.

The studio is continuing to hold classes via Zoom.  The studio's goal is to keep kids connected, engaged and learning while they are at home. Please follow the same dance attire guidelines as you would at the studio. These classes are interactive and will give the students the ability to communicate with both the teachers and other students. PADC families are emailed links for their student's classes.

Class Attire

Appropriate dance shoes and dance attire must be worn in all classes. All students must wear studio brand dance shoes. The studio also sells a variety of leotards, tights, skirts and dance bags. Absolutely no street shoes allowed in the classrooms.

Ballet: Solid color leotard, pink tights, pink Revolution ballet shoes. Hair must be in a bun. Ballet 3-6 and pointe must wear a black leotard.

Tap, Jazz, Lyrical and Modern: Any style leotard, tights, leggings, dance top or shorts and appropriate shoes. Check for class color and style.

Hip Hop: Proper dancewear or a tight-fitting t-shirt and shorts/pants and black hip hop shoes. No jeans.

Combo Classes: Any style leotard and tights, pink ballet shoes. Combo 2 also needs black tap shoes.

Gymnastics: Any style leotard and tights or biketard. Must wear black gymnastics shoes.


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.


PADC offers several different fundraisers throughout the year to help offset the cost of tuition and costumes. Anyone can participate who takes classes at the studio. Whatever money you earn will go directly into your account. 

Dancer's Closet

Please be sure to order and pick-up dance shoes from the Dancer's Closet shop at the studio. The shop also carries dancewear, bags, shirts, tights and accessories. Any shoes or items that were ordered will be available for pick-up once the shop reopens.

Remind 101

If you would like to receive text notifications from the studio, including weather-related delays and closings, please sign up by texting @PADC to the number 740-279-1753.

Recital Practice Schedule

To help our dancers prepare for the annual recital, we will begin a new schedule on Zoom on Tuesday, May 26. Please watch your email for new Zoom links for these classes.

While we will continue to offer Zoom classes moving forward, our goal is also to offer these same classes in the studio, to those interested, the first week of June. In the coming days, we will be sharing steps we are taking as well as the new policies that will be in place in order to open safely. We want to move forward in a way that allows our families to choose an option that best fits their level of comfort at this time whether that is through Zoom or in the studio.

Picture Day Scheduled

Picture Day is tentatively rescheduled for July 25, 2020. We are unsure what the restrictions will be at that time, but we wanted to get a date on the calendar in hopes of moving forward with any necessary modifications in place. We will keep everyone posted as the schedule and format come together.


PADC will hold their annual recital. We will keep you informed about the recital as we navigate this unprecedented time. We appreciate your patience and cooperation. We are looking forward to seeing all of our dancers on stage at the recital!

Make-up Classes

Because we are moving forward with online classes, there will be no need to make-up any classes while the studio has been closed. Online classes will begin the week of Spring Break on March 30. Please check your email for links to your dancer's classes.

Referral Program

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!
