Kindergarten & 1st Grade
Building on the experience dancers have as toddlers, natural movements are used in more directed and experience-based exercises that explore the elements of dance: time, space, and energy.
Teachers continue to pose questions and creative problems for students to solve, using their new understanding of tempo, rhythm, level, shape, spatial pathways, body organization, and teamwork. More complex movements are developed and taught to the students with emphasis placed on improvisational skills and free movement. Language arts, visual art, props, games, music, and stories are used as teaching tools to expose young dancers to the world and encourage them to think about how the world moves.
How do I register?
Use the tables below to access the online registration form. Once you fill the form out, select your classes, and input your information the enrollment will be sent to the studio. Nick – the studio owner – works mostly on his own without admin staff and will get you an email confirmation as soon as he is able! Please be aware there are several important disclaimers that you must agree to (the legalese) and you must input a credit/debit card or bank account info.
You are not required to pay via credit/debit card or bank account; however, we require this to make sure we have a method of payment on file in case we need to charge you account in a late/payment due situation. If you have issues or questions regarding this process, please get a hold of the studio.
Can we try a class first?
Absolutely! We’d love to offer you a FREE trial class to come and experience, first hand, the magic of what we do at South Valley Creative Dance.
Please use the table below and select “TRIAL” enrollment on the form. This will let the studio know that you are interested in learning more but not enrolling for the full semester/year just yet. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to the studio.
What fees do you charge?
We work very hard to keep our fees and tuitions rates down. Our 3 & 4 Year Old class is $50 per month. New families joining our studio for the first time will receive 2 months of tuition at 20% off; after that time, tuition will be full priced.
We do ask all families to pay a one-time $60 costume and production fee per student in the spring. This covers the cost of costuming ($30) and producing ($30) our show at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center – the main stage where most of Utah’s professional dance companies perform. It’s a beautiful theatre with amazing production opportunities; however, it does take some extra funding to pull off. Using the costume fee, the studio will purchase a leotard that your dancer will wear for the performance AND that you can keep afterwards. Using the production fee, the studio will pay for a videographer to shoot and record the show and will provide a digital download for you for FREE.
Do I need to enroll for the whole year?
We highly suggest that you enroll for the entire year – our Fall semester is spent in the studio dancing and building skills while our Spring is used to choreograph and prep for an end-of-year recital. We don’t want anyone to miss out on enjoying and being a part of our amazing production.
If you can only enroll for part of the year, we recommend dropping from classes at the Winter/Holiday break. Please see below for more information about our withdrawal policy.
What if we change our minds?
Every effort is made to make sure you love your dance class and want to keep coming – not only all year but for years to come! If you have issues with the studio or teacher, please feel free to bring them to the attention of the studio owner – we will make every effort to make a place for you at this studio.
If, however, you must leave classes we require a 30 written (email is fine) notice of your withdrawal after which time no more tuition will be due. This policy is strictly followed and will be enforced – it’s also a part of the legalese when you register – so you’ll see it again as a reminder!
