What should my dancer wear?

Any dance/athletic wear is fine for all classes. No loose/baggy clothes are acceptable (except in hip hop). Ages 3-5 are fine in any dance outfit you may find at Target etc. If wearing tights to acro/pre-tumbling, make sure they are footless or convertible so they can be barefoot for those classes.

Level 1-4 Ballet Classes on are required to wear black leotard and pink tights. Pink leather or canvas ballet shoes are required for all ballet classes.

Jazz shoes, pirouettes, or bare feet are appropriate for all jazz/lyrical classes.

Tennis shoes with non-marking soles are appropriate for all hip hop classes.

Tap classes require black tap shoes – any style is fine.

Hair should always be pulled back out of the face for all classes. Dancers should bring their own water bottle.

I most recommend Dance Xtreme for dancewear/supplies. There’s also Assemble in Castle Rock.

What is your make-up policy?

If a dancer misses a class for any reason, they are allowed to come to any other class on the schedule to do a make-up. Please inform the instructor that your dancer is there for a make-up when you drop them off. You do not need to notify us in advance that you will be coming. All make-ups must be done before Recital. No monetary credits will be given for missed classes.

Can I try a class?

Dancers are welcome to try any class for our standard $15 Walk-In Fee. You do not need to notify us in advance if you wish to try a class. Just stop by the office a couple minutes prior to the class. Fill out one of our walk-in forms on the desk and pay via cash or check. Pass these items on to the instructor and let them know you are there for a walk-in. If you decide to join the class, sign up online and tuition will be pro-rated for however many weeks are left in the month. If you are a NEW student to Boutique and have never tried a class before, we do offer 1 free trial per dancer. Please just go to front desk and fill out liability form.

How does billing work?

You will receive a billing statement 7 days before payment is due of each month outlining tuition for the upcoming month and any additional fees that were incurred since the previous bill. All payments are due the 1st of the month via cash, check, or credit card. Credit cards can be kept on file for automatic billing the first Monday of each month. We do have an online portal where you can pay, put a credit card on file and set up automatic payments. Please ask front desk if you have any questions.

What is your drop/refund policy?

If dancers are dropping their class(es), please notify us via email prior to the next billing cycle and you will not be charged further. If you choose to drop in the middle of a month you have already paid for, no refunds are given. If you need to change/adjust your dancer’s schedule, please email us with your changes and we will do our best to accommodate them.

What are your observation policies?

Parents are welcome to observe class from our Lobby space. No parents are allowed in the dance studio space. Parents are welcome to drop their dancer off and come back at the end of class to pick them up.

What is the studio calendar?

The only holidays that are observed by the studio are:
Halloween – Closed Oct. 31st
Thanksgiving Break – Closed Nov. 22nd – Nov. 26th
Winter Break – Closed Dec. 24th – Jan 6th

What is your weather closure policy?

If Douglas County School District has any snow closures or if after school activities have been listed as cancelled, then the studio is also closed. If there are morning delayed starts listed, our am classes will be canceled and we will open the studio at 1pm. In the event of a studio closure, it will be posted on our homepage, facebook and instagram pages, and an email will be sent out to notify you. Please do a makeup for missed classes, no refunds are given.

How does recital work?

We hold our end-of-year recital at the end of May/start of June. Each class learns one dance and receives one costume, (with the exception of a few classes marked on our schedule). You are responsible for paying for your costume(s) and ticket(s) to the show. We do one show for our Combo Level Students, and one show for our Level 1 – Level 4 Students.  This year, dress rehearsal and show is TBD.

Do you do any other shows/performances?

We have our annual Snowcase in December. We will also be doing some local performances around town. We will updated when we have more information on exact events.
