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. 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 if you are running late please contact us at 563-888-3431 or email the Dance Coordinator at Jhampton@ci.davenport.ia.us to let us know! If there’s no answer, just leave a message!
We will cancel classes due to extreme weather or emergencies. We post notifications to the main page of our website and on our voice message system, 563-326-7862. Please use your discretion and stay safe. Classes cancelled due to weather will not be rescheduled.
Costume Fees : No Costume Fee for Fall Session!
For the 2020 Winter class session a $45 costume fee is due by February 21st. To pay your costume fee now click here!
We will be sending handouts home with your child almost every class! Please read them carefully as they will contain important info. If you need extra copies, please ask the front desk. Important info will also be sent via email by the Dance Coordinator. Also check out our Parent Info page on our website in the ‘Dance’ section. Instructors are available 5 minutes after class for questions!
We Want To Help Your Child Succeed!
Please let our Dance Coordinator or Desk Team know if your child has any intellectual, developmental, or medical concerns. We have a brief form to fill out. We want all students to be successful in class, the information you provide us helps us achieve that!
Holidays : Thanksgiving (11/25/19-11/30/19)
All classes will run on Monday Holidays. We will NOT have classes the week of November 25th-30th.
Class Presentations: December 14th & 15th
All Fall Dance and Tumble classes will conclude with an on stage Class Presentation where students will perform skills learned throughout the session. Students will wear regular class attire. Classes will perform during one presentation December 14th OR December 15th. There are no tickets for the Presentations but seating will be limited! Click here to view the schedule!
Lobby Etiquette : Respect One Another
Please be mindful of those around you and the classes that are going on while you wait in our lobby. We ask that you silence your devices while in use. Feel free to use our upper theatre lobby to take phone calls. Sound easily travels to our main studio space. Please help our dancers focus in class by keeping noise low in the lobby. Also, keep conversations appropriate to kids and families.
Wi-Fi Etiquette - PARK-REC Is Our Network
We offer free Wi-Fi access to our guests. Note that while on Wi-Fi you *may not engage in any illegal activities or pirated downloads.
All students must be potty trained. If a student were to have an accident in class our staff will come get the parent from the lobby. If a parent/guardian are not present our staff is prepared to assist them. If you feel more comfortable changing your child yourself, we ask you be present at all times incase your child were to need your assistance. We have extra underwear and clothing in a special bag for them to change.
We provide a safe, bully-free classroom environment. If a child is engaged in inappropriate behavior, we work with parents to solve it. Physical aggression will not be tolerated in class.
Dance Class Essentials : How to Prepare for Class!
- Water bottle
- Proper dance shoes/attire
- Hair pulled back/out of face
- Use the restroom before class
- Open mind and a positive attitude!

Shoe & Leotard Exchange Program
Here at DJT Dance we make an effort to make classes accessible and affordable for all parents and students. That’s why we have a shoe and leotard exchange program! How it works: We accept lightly worn dance shoes and leotards as a donation when students outgrow them. Students who donate their shoes/leotard will have an opportunity to trade in their old shoes for another size (if available).
