he classroom is for enrolled students only. Children participate to their fullest when it is only their fellow students in the classroom. There are designated times throughout the session where parents and families will be invited into the studio space.
Late/Absence Policy - A true team effort
Students are allowed 2 absences in a session. A dancer’s presence in class is important for their learning and the learning of others. If you know you are going to be late or absent, please contact us in advance at 563-888-3431.
Sick or Running late? - We've been there!
If your child is sick or you are running late please contact us at 563-888-3431 to let us know! This helps us to plan for the group. If no answer, please leave a message!
We will cancel classes due to extreme weather or emergencies. We post notifications on the homepage of our website and on our voice message system, (563) 326-7862. Please us your discretion and stay safe. Classes cancelled by weather will not be rescheduled. You can sign up for our text alerts as well here.
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!

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).
This fall we will be expanding our exchange program to include leotards! We are now accepting gently worn leotards of all sizes to grow our current stock. See our Dance Coordinator for more details!
