After School FAQ
What does my child do between classes: until 5:30pm daily students in our after school program have access between classes to arts & crafts as well as board games, and a staff member is available to give homework help.
How to wear hair: all students, no matter the class, should bring hair ties to secure their hair away from their face.
Where to buy attire: we offer a small selection of retail items at our Gearhart studio & can order for you if we don't have your size!
Where to store belongings: each after-school participant has either a cubby or hook just for their personal things (be sure to label stuff with your child's name though, lots of dance and tumble attire looks the same & this helps identify lost items).
What should I send my child with: after-school participants should have a water bottle and snacks (snacks available for purchase for $1)
Can I watch my child's class: at our Warrenton studio we will have viewing of both rooms available from the front windows. At our Gearhart studio we have some seating available in the lobby with viewing monitors for our 2 main classrooms.
