What does my child need to bring for class?
All dance students are required to purchase a uniform. Leotard, tights, and leggings. Depending on the class he or she is taking shoes must be worn. Ballet requires ballet shoes. Ballet shoes can be purchased thru AMB Dance Theatre or on your own. For Hip-Hop, sneakers must be worn. For Acro no shoes or socks are needed. For Jazz shoes are required for Jazz classes, you may purchase thru AMB Dance Theatre or on your own. Technique class no shoes, however, socks are allowed.
Is EACH class $50?
No, the style of dance you sign up for is $50 per month, not one single class. One single class trial is $10. AMB requires that dancers sign up for 2 classes or more.
When can my daughter or son move on to a more advanced level?
Levels are only done with the ballet training. AMB evaluates each student to make sure their ability is up to par with the current class they are in. If the student understands the proper terminology, shows classroom etiquette, discipline, and strength. A meeting with parents and AMB will be the next process to discuss moving up to a new level of ballet training.
I am running late should I still bring my child to class?
Absolutely! 5 minutes late jump in for the warm up, 10 minutes late stretch on the side until you are ready to join in, 15 minutes late will result in a sit down class.
Where the student will take notes and observe the class. AMB does not want anyone to get injured due to tardiness, this is a safe way to still be a part of the class.
I left my dance shoes at home... what should I do?
The first time this happens will be a warning. The second will result in a sit down observing class and taking notes.
When is tuition due? Can I pay for a full year?
Tuition is always due at the first of the month. Not the first day you have class for that month. A late fee of $10 will be added to your tuition.
Absolutely you can pay for the full year. If any state wide emergency were to happen, a refund for the remaining months not in session will be refunded.
For the summer workshops what does that entail?
The summer workshops are broken down by age group, each session is 2 weeks. All of the dancers will have the opportunity to audition for a position in a showcase. The showcases usually are at a theater or gym. Workshops are $300 for the two weeks. Please call 973-668-6724 for further information and a packet.
