Our staff comprises professional and dance educated instructors. We instruct children at a level of learning that is both fun
and technical. We do not use inappropriate songs during any class or recital and all of our costumes are appropriate with
no cutouts or bellies showing. Recitals are ONE DAY ONLY and Videotaping is allowed at Recital!! Our class pricing has
NOT increased in many years and our instructors are all dedicated to your child’s growth as a dancer.
During the 2017-2018 dance year, the studio performed at many local and regional venues and we believe in giving back
to our community. Over the past 8years we have collected over $6000 dollars for various charities and donated more than
600 inches of hair.

Though we are NOT a “competition studio” but we do offer students in certain levels, the opportunity to participate in 3-4
Competitions a year. Students in competition must also be in a Ballet class in addition to their other classes.
The year ended with a celebration of our 8th year recital “Better Together”. All those who attended said it was “one of the
best organized, wonderfully choreographed, entertaining recitals they have ever been to.”
Dance Action of Newtown is going into our NINTH year and we are so excited for this year.

IMPORTANT PARENT/STUDENT INFORMATION
