Ballet Requirement

Ballet is required for all levels in order to enroll in any additional classes. Enrolling in Hip Hop and Acro is an exception to this rule. (i.e. - A student wanting to take a jazz, tap, or extended study class, must also enroll in Ballet. A student only wanting to take hip hop or acro is not required to enroll in ballet.)

Annual Recital

Premiere's 2019 annual recital will be held June 28th, 29th, and 30th. Rehearsals will be held June 26th & 27th. Both rehearsals and shows will be held at Valley High School. All students that are enrolled in classes for the 2018-2019 season (Exceptions: Level I-IV Ballet, Condition & Strength, Stretch & Skill, Level I / II Training, and Industry Experience) are required to participate. 

Class Attendance

Parents, please be sure to notify the studio by phone or email if your child is sick or planning to be absent from class. It is imperative that dancers attend class regularly to continue growth. If your child is injured, they are still expected to attend class and observe. Missed classes will not be refunded.

Observation of Classes

A viewing window is available for parents and siblings to watch. Please be respectful of studio property and others around you when in the waiting area.

Inclement Weather

When experiencing inclement weather, Premiere will follow the Waukee school district's early releases and cancelations. If the weather is questionable please expect an email confirming any changes to the class schedule. Updates will be posted on our social media.

When classes are cancelled, dancers are allowed to make-up their class by attending another class of the same level within 1 month of the cancellation date. Please email the office prior to attending a make-up class. 

Class Cancellations

Classes with less than 5 students will be cancelled due to low enrollment. If this occurs, families will be refunded fully for their registration fee.

Premiere values your feedback. Please let us know how we are doing by contacting us by phone or email.
