Q. My child is not potty trained. Can they attend camps?
A. It is alright that your child is not potty trained but they must be sent to camp w/ pull-ups and an extra change of clothes. Since our facilities do not have diaper changing areas, and to make changes as efficient as possible for our teachers and students, we require pull-ups for our students that aren't potty trained. Also, a change of clothes is a good idea to pack for your ballerina.
Q. My child has allergies, is he/she still able to join?
A. Of course your child may still join us. All students will provide their own snacks and lunches and can adapt those according to their needs. If your child's allergy is life-threatening please let us know and we will make all of the attendees that week's camp aware not to send any of that item in. Also, you will need to send your child's epipen in a bag w/ ice packs if it needs to stay cold.
Q. My child has never taken dance before, is this a problem?
A. Not at all! All students are welcome in our programs and our camps are a great way to give your child a taste of the magic and fun.
Q. Someone other than myself and my spouse will be picking up my child for camp today, what information do you need?
A. Please make sure your child's teacher knows the name and contact information for the person picking them up. If it is the same person each day you can let them know on the first day of camp or email them in advance.
Q. What does a day look like in the creative ballet camps?
A. Ballerinas participate in ballet class each day where they will learn fundamentals of ballet, as well as hear a different story that they dance out with props and beautiful costumes. They will also work on arts and crafts, play games, hear stories, have snack time, and play with friends.
Q. My child's lunch needs special preparation each day such as use of a microwave. Can the teacher do this for her?
A. Our facilities do not have microwaves. It's best to send lunches that your child can dive right into without any special preparation. Our teachers are happy to help open items for your child!
