GENERAL

What is Thrive doing to keep our dancers healthy?

We are dedicated to keeping our dancers safe and healthy by regularly scheduled cleanings of the studio. We ask that any dancers who are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19 to please stay home.

When does the dance year start?

Our dance year runs parallel to the traditional school year with classes starting in September, right after labor day, and ending in June. The dance year will conclude with our annual recital that is usually the second Sunday in June. In addition, we offer a separate summer session for dancers who would like to continue their training through the summer.

Am I able to watch my dancer?

Parents are welcome to watch their dancer(s) via the viewing windows. Only dancers who are enrolled in the class are allowed in the classroom during class time.

Are makeup classes available?

Yes! If your dancer misses a class, they are able to make up the class on a different date for their level.

How will I be notified if class is canceled?

If your dancer’s class is canceled due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, an email will be sent to all parents as well as posted on our social media.

Where do I find the studio closure dates?

Thrive follows the Monroe Public School calendar. All important studio dates can be found on our Studio Closings page located here.

How does Thrive communicate news and time-sensitive information?

All information is communicated via email to the parent email associated with your dancer’s Dance Studio Pro Portal. Additionally, we are very active on Facebook and Instagram. All of our important information will be conveyed on these forums as well.
