Who will be teaching classes?

We are working on the final staff lineup for Virginia right now. Miss Kristen will be staying on staff and we are very excited to be working with her! Whitney Burdick & Linnea Harris from the Hibbing studio will also be teaching classes in Virginia. We’ll share more information on staffing as we firm up our plans.

What kind of classes will be offered?

We will be offering a tap & jazz combo class, modern, hip hop, and ballet.

Our Hibbing studios are currently offering Zumba and Barre, while our Virginia location has been offering Yoga. We are looking into interest levels of these classes for adult students.

What age does my child have to be to start classes?

We start our dancers at age 3 🙂

Do you have an Open House?

Yes – We sure do!

The Open House event is usually within the first two weeks of September, and classes usually start the 3rd week of September. The entire Dance Shoppe staff will be at Open House to meet all the dancers and their families.

Where can I register for classes?

We do all of our registration online, which is extra convenient for busy parents!

Dance families are able to register online for summer classes now, and fall class registration will be open on August 1. Fall schedules will be posted online on July 25th.

Here’s the link for online registration.

What is my parent portal?

The parent portal is your link to class information. In the parent portal, you can register for classes, look at your child’s schedule, review and make payments on your account, and communicate with Dance Shoppe staff.

Is there going to be a competition team?

Yes! Our competition teams will rehearse at our Hibbing location.

Dancers that are going into 2nd grade and above in the fall will be eligible to try out for our competitive teams.

There are summer class requirements in order to be eligible for our competition teams. Please visit your parent portal to learn more about these classes.

How do I get dance wear?

Stephanie’s Dance Shoppe utilizes online ordering for all shoes & dance wear.

At our Open House events, you will be able to size your dancer, and we have sizing kits at the studio so that you can be sure you will order the right sizes.

Dance wear & shoes are delivered to the studio and given to your dancer at the next class after delivery.

Can I take classes from either location?

Absolutely. If there are classes you’re interested in that are not on the Virginia schedule, be sure to let us know.
