We feel we are set a part from any dance school in the Valley because of the expertise of our faculty and the heart of our mission. Our faculty members are currently being featured in television shows, touring the world educating others while still making it a priority to teach your children at The Studance LAB. Our safe and encouraging environment for dancers of all ages invites dancers from all over the world to train in our programs.
We offer classes for dancers starting at age 3 to adults. (Please note: Toddlers must be potty trained)
Most of the classes are 1 hour. Our Tiny Tots classes are 45 minutes.
Simply fill out our online registration form and sign up for your free trial class. You can also conveniently call us anytime at 623.932.1505 so we can schedule your free trial class. Prepare your dancer by following our dress code, arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled class, then it’s time to dance!
Yes, you can view the dress codes for each class here.
We require a parent to remain at the studio for our toddler and mini aged students (3 to 6). It’s the parents discretion to remain at the studio for all other dancers.
Please call the front office 623.932.1505 if your dancer will be late to class so we can notify the instructor. We ask our parents to be prompt picking up their children after classes are finished as there will be no teacher/ staff to specifically monitor them once class is over. If you will more than 5 minutes late picking up your student please contact the front desk.
Yes, tuition will run automatically on the 1st of every month with the credit/ visa card on file. You can pay cash, or a with a different card as long as you contact the front desk prior to the 1st of the month. We do not accept checks.
Yes, we have a Christmas Showcase in December and a Spring Recital in June. Participation is optional but highly recommended.
There is no participation fee to perform in our Christmas Showcase or Spring recital, if you registered prior to 10/1, because the costume is built into the monthly tuition. Those who enrolled after will have to pay a $30 costume fee, per class they are performing in.
We have both Hip-Hop competition teams and Dance competition teams that are available to dancers ages 5-17. We hold annual auditions in May for our competition teams: Groovy Babies, Shorties, Petite Elite, Jr. Elite LAB Ratz, Primas, Sr. Elite, and Groovement. More information on competition teams click here.
If a child misses a class and monthly tuition has been paid, the dancer is entitled to one make-up class per month for each registered class. A make-up class is any other class that we offer for their age and dance level. Make up classes are your responsibility. Make up classes must be made up within the same month of the absence. If you elect not to make-up the missed class, it will not be credited to your next month’s tuition. There are no transfers, refunds, or credits. Our teachers highly recommend that dancers take advantage of the make-up classes to help them from falling behind in their dance training.
Make-up classes are not allowed during May through June.
Our dance season runs from August through June, 11 months, with summer camps during the June / July months.
We offer family plans, the discount for families is built into the overall tuition based on number of classes selected. We credit our dance families $15 every time you refer a new family that joins us with a monthly tuition membership!
