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!

Classroom Environment

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 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! This helps us to plan for the group. If no answer, please leave a message!

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 do offer free wi-fi access for our guests. Please note that on our Wi-Fi you may not engage in any illegal activities or pirated downloads. Thank you.

Potty Accidents

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.

Classroom Safety

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.

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).
