During the summer prior to the start of the school year our ANNUAL Schedule will be online by mid June and early July. Families will be contacted with a TIME TO REGISTER email stating the class/classes your student is eligible to enroll in. Classes are leveled mainly by Grade, Ability and Experience. Many classes are multi grade. SEE CLASS DESCRIPTIONS to learn about our classes. NEW Families to HWSD are encouraged to email [email protected] with inquiries into our School Year Program of Dance.
Age 3.5 to Pre-K: Creative Movement Only: Students may register for more than one CM class
KINDERGARTEN to GRADE 2 : BALLET ONLY: (see Class Description) We believe Ballet is a great introduction to the foundation of dance. Students explore movement through the grace and technique of ballet to develop core, strength and focus to prepare to explore other genres when older.
GRADE 3 – GRADE 12 : In addition to our Ballet classes, students are eligible for other genres and register for multiple classes TAP: Modern: Jazz (incorporating lyrical, contemporary, Broadway, Traditional Jazz):
STUDENTS IN OUR Intermediate Ballet/PREPOINTE & ADV. BALLET & POINTE PROGRAM have a 2x week requirement for both Ballet Classes and Pointe Classes: There is a summer requirement for all Prepointe/P.A.S.S./ Int. / Adv. Ballet & Adv. Pointe students. All students must start in September: Summer requirements for 2020 have been suspended due to Covid.
In receiving the TIME TO REGISTER emails during the summer, families of existing students will email HWSD stating which classes their student will participate in for the school year. * New students entering in Sept. will be notified which classes they may be placed in according to experience and grade. Audition for Pointe is required for new incoming students who have not been part of our program. Summer Classes may be considered for audition purposes. Summer tuition is separate from our ten month school year program
HWSD will send a CONFIRMATION and BILL. Registration form may be filled out online or downloaded off the Registration page and mailed in with tuition. We will need a signed hard copy.
