How do I set up my trial?

You can contact us via the following avenues:

  • Email: amy@dance502.com
  • Phone: 502-425-7710
  • Facebook messenger: www.facebook.com/louisvilledance502
  • Drop in the studio! You can show up the day of to do a trial, although we recommend contacting us ahead of time.

What do I need to do when I arrive at the studio?

There is some paperwork (an info sheet, a waiver and a photo release form) that needs to be completed upon arrival (Enrollment Documents). You can pre-fill these out and bring them with you, or fill them out at the studio. If there isn’t anybody at the desk, a teacher will come out to greet you shortly after arrival. Please let the teacher know if you need to borrow shoes for your trial.

Can I watch class?

With the exception of our Saturday 10:30 AM class, we do not allow parents in the dance room during regular classes. We do not have observation windows so we would have to allow parents in class to observe, which is very distracting to the classroom. You ARE allowed to observe the trial class. Most parents take advantage of this, although if you believe your child will focus better without you in class, you can choose to not observe.

Attire

For your child’s trial class, if they don’t have dance attire, make sure they have clothing on they move comfortably in. We have an assortment of used ballet and tap shoes that can be borrowed for the trial class.

We sell Balera brand tap, ballet and jazz shoes at the studio. We can size your child for the best fit and order shoes if we do not have their size in stock.

Shoes can also be purchased around town at Target or Kinney’s Dancewear.
