Each student will be responsible for purchasing a costume for each dance class that he/she is a part of (jazz, tap, and clog).   Costume deposits are due at the very first lesson in September and are NON-REFUNDABLE!  Deposits are $25 per class.  The remaining balance is due the week of November 10th so that costumes can be ordered and received on time.  Costumes are a very fun and exciting part of the dance season!




Visitors will not be allowed during regularly scheduled classes.  "Visitors / Costume Day" will take place in early-to-mid March where visitors will be allowed to observe. 

The studio is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Students are not to be left at the studio for excessive time periods before or after their classes. Siblings are not allowed to wait in or outside the lobby during classes without parental supervision.

Dianne's Dance

There will not be classes in the event of severe weather.  We will follow Woodbury Central School's judgment and will also post cancellations on local TV stations.  We do have lessons on teacher in-service days!  If you are unsure if classes are cancelled, there will be a recorded message on the Studio line below in addition to local news stations.  There will be makeup lessons (if needed due to weather) which will be scheduled in April.




We believe that dance can be an exciting experience and play an important role in a student's life and education.  All dancers are placed in the most advanced level suitable to their skills.  Students in advanced Junior & Senior classes are placed by teacher evaluation.  Classes are not grouped by grades & will have a variety of ages.  Thank you for trusting our judgment.

Please call for details.
