Studio News

The snow has melted, the days are getting longer and the sun is getting warmer. Spring is here, and things are heating up at the studio. Dancers are preparing for competitions and our annual recital! Please make sure you read through this newsletter to keep you up to date and informed of everything going on at PADC!

Updated Mask Policy

We have updated our studio mask policy. Moving forward, once dancers enter their classroom and find their spot on the perimeter of the room, they may remove their mask before heading to their socially distanced spot. They will then be allowed to dance without a mask if they feel comfortable. Any dancer who feels more comfortable keeping their mask on to dance is welcome to do so. Masks will continue to be required upon entry to the building, in common spaces and for teachers and staff at all times.

Zoom Class Access

If your dancer will be participating in classes online via Zoom, in order to log into class, you will simply log into your PADC account (click Register/Login in the menu at the top of this page), scroll through your dancer's schedule to find the appropriate class and then click on the Zoom link.

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.

Steps For Health & Safety

At PADC, the safety and health of our students and staff is our top priority. We want to reassure parents and caregivers that the studio is prepared for students to come to class. We have outfitted each of our four large studios with individual dance spaces that allow for appropriate social distancing. Masks will be worn upon entry and hand sanitizing stations are located outside of classrooms and at the studio entrance. Studio staff will be cleaning and sanitizing the facility on a schedule that exceeds state directives, focusing on high touch areas.

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!
