  • What are my payment options?
    At Sunshine Dance our preferred form of payment is by e-check (ACH), but families also have the ability to pay by credit card. You will register your preferred form of payment in your account and this payment method will be used on the first of each month to pay all tuition and fees due at that time. $25 charge for returned ACH payments. * all tuition and fees are non-refundable
  • Do you have a competitive Dance Team?
    We do! Information about our award winning Sunshine Dance Company can be found on our Company Page.
  • Do your classes and camps have waitlists? How can I add myself to the waitlist?
    Yes! We offer waitlist for all of our classes and camps, and you can add yourself to any waitlist entirely on your own through our parent portal! Simply navigate to our "Classes" page and click "Enroll" as if you were going to enroll in a class. When the system prompts you to choose a class for enrollment, make sure to toggle the switch at the top of the screen so you are seeing "All Classes" instead of just "Classes with Openings". From here you will be able to see all of our classes that are currently full and add yourself to the waitlist. Please note that you will not be charged any tuition fees when adding yourself to a waitlist. If a spot opens up in that class, we will automatically reach out to you via email to offer you the spot. If you still would like to claim the spot, we will charge you the relevant tuition fees at that time!
  • What if my child wants to drop out of their class?
    ​While we never want to lose a student from a class, we realize that sometimes life happens and it may become difficult to continue with your dance commitment. Any consideration to drop a class must be discussed with the Studio Manager or Business Manager (not a teacher). Enrollment in class is a 9 month commitment. If a final decision is made to drop the class, the parent must give a 30 day notice, in writing, of your intent to drop. You will be responsible for tuition fees for the full 30 days. * all tuition and fees are non-refundable.
  • What information can you give me about your recital?
    Recital performances for the 2024-2025 dance season will be held at the Batavia Fine Arts Center. This will be a ticketed event. Tickets will go on sale to the public in April. A direct link to purchase Recital Tickets along with other important details will be emailed to you in early April. Our recital week, which consists of required dress rehearsals and recital performances, will be held June 2-7, 2025. Please mark your calendar to reserve these dates. All additional Recital details will be communicated in early April when our 2025 Recital Packet is emailed out to all parents and students. Keep an eye on your inbox for that important document!
  • How do I know which class is appropriate for my child?
    Sunshine Dance offers 3 different degrees of dancer development (Pre-Core, Core and Company Level). Pre-Core Classes are for ages 3-6. These classes will have “Pre” or “Kinder” in their class title and are designed to give our youngest students a fun and educational experience while teaching them the basic core principles of dance. Core Classes are for ages 6-15 and are listed by grade level. In these classes students will learn and master the fundamentals of proper dance technique, style and performance. Company Classes are for ages 5-18. Placement in these classes are by audition only. Auditions are held each year in June and dancers are then placed into the appropriate class for their current skill set. For more information, please contact the studio.
