We are excited to have you here!
Welcome to DJT Dance, a program geared towards the development and bettering of your child’s personal growth! We look forward to your participation in our program, giving your child the tools to engage and express with the world around them! We believe dance is and should be fun!
The classroom is for enrolled students only. Designated show weeks will be scheduled during the session for families to watch the last 5-10 minutes of class. Otherwise the classrooms are for students only. Children participate to their fullest when it is only their fellow students in the classroom. Parents are not allowed in studio unless invited by staff or during our parent show week.
Late/Absence Policy - A true team effort
Any student with more than two unexcused absences may be asked not participate in the performance. If you know you are going to be late or absent, please contact us in advance. (563) 888-3431 or contact our Studio Coordinator via email. Excessive absences may result in not being able to participate in performance.
Sick or Running late? - We've been there!

There will be no costume fee for the Summer and Fall sessions. Students wear their classroom attire for final sharing. The Winter/Spring session is our recital session. For that session there will be a $45.00 costume fee per class and you can pay here.
We will be sending handouts home with your child throughout the course. These handouts will discuss any change in classroom policies and will provide updates on information regarding the class or upcoming special events. Please read them carefully. We will also send emails and update our parent info section.
We Want To Help Your Child Succeed!

Dance Recital Schedule
We are proud to have the only free dance recital in the QCA. However, seating is limited due to only having 350 seats in our theatre. All enrolled students will receive 5 tickets to the dance recital. There will be a two week period for families to apply for more tickets and return tickets they do not plan to use. For recital schedule and list of when each class will dance, please follow this link.
Please be mindful of those around you and the classes that are going on while you wait in our lobby. Please help our dancers focus in class by keeping noise low in the lobby. We ask that you silence your devices while in use. Feel free to use our upper theatre lobby to take phone calls. Please keep conversations appropriate to kids and families.

Shoe Exchange Program
Here at DJT Dance, we strive to make classes accessible and affordable for all parents and students. That's why we have a shoe exchange program!
How it works:
We accept lightly worn dance shoes as a donation when students outgrow them. Students who donate their shoes will have an opportunity to trade in their old shoes for another size (if available). As DJT Dance grows, we hope to grow our donation efforts.
