Weather Related Cancellations:
Tuition includes 2 weather related cancellations per year. We typically follow the Woodbury school district for cancellations. We will send an email and also post on our social media pages.
32 Lesson Year:
Tuition is calculated based on a 32 lesson year and is not dependent on the number of classes per month.
Dancers should wear comfortable clothing that they can move and stretch in.
Examples include: leotards, dance/yoga pants, dance shorts, tank tops, etc. Boys can wear athletic shorts, t-shirts, etc. Please no jeans or sweats. Dance apparel and shoes can be purchased at Step-n-Stretch in Woodbury, MN. Please visit the Recreational Classes page for a list of what shoes to wear for your child’s class.
All dancers should have a bag to keep their shoes in, labeled with their name (first and last). For younger dancers, bags should be brought into the dance room for easy shoe changes. For older dancers, please leave your bags in a cubby.
Attendance and Make-up Classes:
Attending class is very important for dancers. Each week we will learn new skills or new sections of the recital dance/s. If a dancer misses a class and wishes to make-up the class, please contact your dancer’s instructor for make-up options. Make-ups are not required, but are recommended. Dancers coming late to class should enter when music is not playing as to not distract other students.
If at any time you find the need to withdraw your dancer/s from their class/es, please contact our studio immediately. Tuition for the current month will not be refunded.
Parents are welcome to stay in the lobby during class. We ask that there is no eating or drinking on the carpeted area of the lobby. Please use the tables and stools in the eating area. If siblings are present, no running or roughhousing allowed. Please make sure to bring a quiet activity for them. We ask that you do not distract your dancer during classes.
We often have staff photograph dancers during class time or special events. These photos may be posted on our website, Facebook, or in ads promoting DelMonico Dance. When registering for classes, you’ve agreed that we may use any photographs taken of your dancer for these purposes. No name will ever be listed with these photographs. In the spring, we will have professional pictures taken of all our dance classes. Students will wear their recital costumes and take both individual and group photos that will be available for purchase.
DelMonico Dance has an active Facebook page, Instagram, and Twitter! “Like” us to see photos, updates, contests, and more. Also, please tag DelMonico Dance in any dance photos you post with the tag #delmonicodance #dmdartists #dmdfamilyforever
Special Needs, Allergies, etc.:
If your dancer has special needs, allergies, etc., please let the teacher know. Also make sure to input that information under your dancer’s tab or family portal.
Please have your dancer use the restroom before entering their dance class. Restrooms are located near the office, behind the half-hall with the television.
Please feel free to ask any questions and get information from the front desk staff. We will try to keep you posted on all relevant information via the family portal and email but if questions arise, the front desk staff is available to help!
Please keep us updated on your email address. If your email changes, please update it in the family portal and send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know! We don’t want you to miss out on receiving important information!

We will have our annual year-end recital in June. All dancers will have the option to participate in the recital. The recital venue will be announced at a later date. A recital packet with more information will be available closer to show time.
The mission of DelMonico Dance is to enrich the lives of children through the art and expression of dance with an emphasis on proper technique. Students will be provided a safe and nurturing atmosphere that challenges them to strive for personal excellence through the development and improvement of skills and personal style. The students will develop a sense of teamwork and be able to foster relationships that will last a lifetime. Through these relationships, students will grow by encouraging each other to achieve their personal best. We want our dancers to create memories here that surpass the amount of trophies they have won. Teachers will be encouraged to further their education and skills by taking classes and attending workshops. It is the commitment of DelMonico Dance to operate with honesty and with integrity; to build cohesive relationships as a dance family, and to offer quality instruction. Every child has a talent and must be allowed to explore this talent in his/her own time. It is our desire that every child will be shaped by dance in some way and share their passion with others in the classroom and through performance.
Thank You for being part of the DelMonico Dance Family!
~~~We are looking forward to a fantastic year~~~
