Studio 16 will offer multiple shoe fitting dates where dancers can be fitted for their shoes and/or dancewear. Shoes and dancewear can be ordered through Studio 16. Shoe and dancewear fittings is a service that we offer to our dancers. It is not required for you to purchase shoes at Studio 16.


Do you have a recital? How many costumes will I purchase?

Recitals are typically towards the end of May. You will receive an email as soon as the recital date is set. You will need to purchase a costume for each class that your child takes. Combo ballet/tap classes will have two costumes.You may begin making partial payments on costumes as early as September.


Can parents watch classes?

To reduce distractions and to protect dancers’ privacy, parents are not allowed to watch classes. We typically have several days throughout the year that we invite parents to watch class, but due to COVID restrictions, we currently are not allowing anyone into the studios except dancers.


What is your method of communication?

We have several forms of communication. Emails and announcements in your online parent portal will be the main method of communications. You can also like and visit our Facebook page and join our Remind text group for announcements.
