"My daughters learned many, many things from their tenure at FSD - poise, strength, leadership and last but not least the ability to “not let them see you sweat!”
 -Karen, dance parent of 3

At Farmington School of Dance, we offer a combination of ballet & tap in our one hour preschool classes and ballet, tap & jazz for our 90 minute school age classes. We will do some basic tumbling in both classes as time allows.  These classes meet once a week and are open to both girls and boys.  There is a registration fee to enroll in classes and tuition may be paid monthly.

Students will need appropriate dance shoes for their class.  We carry the shoes in our studio & will have shoe fittings before classes start.  Please, do NOT purchase dance shoes outside the studio.  We want all of our dancers to match shoes, especially at recital and since they wear the same shoes for recital, we start with the correct shoes so they can get a full year's wear out of them.  Many dance retailers will tell you that dance shoes (especially ballet) need to be worn like a glove, fitting close to the foot, but this is just not practical for our young dancers!  Preschool dance students need their dance shoes to have a little growing room, just like their regular shoes.  You will also find that ballet shoes run small and I may size them as much as two sizes bigger in ballet shoes. 

Girls will also need a non-skirted leotard & footed tights to wear to class & we also have many styles available to purchase at the studio.  Leotards with attached skirts are dangerous during the tumbling portion of our classes.  Also, make sure the tights you choose have feet in them, as we don't want their dance shoes to make blisters on their feet.

A very important part of dance is performing!  Each year we present a professional recital at the Farmington Centene Center to show parents, grandparents & friends all the hard work we've done for the year!  And of course, costuming a big part of the recital!  You'll take your costumes home on hangers with garment bags and the package includes accessories and tights.  We try to make the whole experience as easy as possible for you!  There are several payment plans available for the costume/recital fees which includes costumes, tights & accessories, tickets to recital, and a recital t-shirt commemorating the entire recital experience! 

We are very conservative when it comes to costume, music & choreography.  We know you want your children to look and act like children for as long as possible!  We rarely use two-piece costumes with bare midriffs and we are very careful about choosing age appropriate music to dance to, in class and at recital.  Our youngest students will practice to traditional preschool dance music that we have successfully used for decades.  In fact, many parents who danced themselves are thrilled that their children are able to have the same experiences they did. (Although we do mix in a sampling of Kidz Bop-type songs and music from their favorite children's television shows!)

We do have a performing group which  performs at local events and venues.  Our team is not like what you see on TV!  We've found that unless they are very serious about dancing, that being "judged" at competitions can be quite overwhelming. 
We formed this performing group to give our students more performing opportunities and since they come to both their regular class and group practice during the week, it allows them to become better dancers and performers!
