Frequently Asked Questions

 

How old does my child have to be to start class at B*Dazzled?

We recommend dancers be 3 years old but sometimes they are ready at 2 1/2. If you can answer yes to all of the questions below, your child is ready for dance class.

-Is your child potty trained? This means out of pull ups.

-Parents are not allowed to stay during class as it is a distraction. Can your child be away from you for an hour?

-We change our activity in Creative Dance about every 10-15 minutes to help dancers stay focused, can your childfollow instruction 10 minutes at a time? 

 

Can parents ever stay to observe class?

Parents are welcome to come back the last 15 minutes of class on the last week of each month to observe. However, many young children get distracted when they see their parents so if this happens please kindly step outside.

 

Is there a dress code?

Yes.   Please refer to the Policies page.

 

Can I just try the class?

Yes, we offer a free trial class in all recreational classes. 

 

How much does it cost?

Registration is $90 and monthly tuition starts at $53 per month. Your monthly tuition depends on how many hours of instruction your dancer signs up for. Tuition can be paid by cash, check or credit card. There is a $10 late fee for and tuition paid after the 1st of the month, we encourage all families to set up automatic payments through checking or credit card accounts to avoid this.

 

Do you give family discounts?

Each session discount rate varies. For our main season families combine hours to receive the family discount. Example: If you have 2 children dancing once a week for an hour each you will pay the 2hr rate. 

 

How much does the costume cost?

Costume deposits are $60 each. We try to keep the cost at or under $60. For our teen dancers and competition classes the cost can range from $60-$80. 

 

How many students are in each class?

While class sizes vary with age, we try to keep classes at 12 dancers or less. 

 

Does my child have to attend all performances?

No, recreational dancers do not have to attend each show. Kindly please let us know in advance though if your child will not be participating in a show.

Competition team dancers are required to perform at each show.

 

What happens if my dancer misses a class?

Please report all absences to the studio by calling (510)278-9035 or emailing BDazzledSL@gmail.com. Missed classes cannot be made up unless approved by your teacher. Thank you for your understanding.

 

How can my child join the competition teams?

Auditions for competition teams are held the last week of June. If your dancer is new to B*Dazzled and you have missed auditions, please enroll in a summer technique class so we can evaluate your dancers level.
