1. Annual Membership
The annual membership is designed to help make the enrollment process as easy as possible for our dance families. No need to stress over if a class will fill up before you get a chance to register anymore! Plus, we enroll your dancer(s) for you, so you don’t have to worry or stress about getting into the class(es) recommended for you and/or your dancer. Having the knowledge of how many dancers are wishing to continue with their training helps us to accommodate enough space in the levels for all of our dancers.
**The annual membership fee is $55 per dancer and $90 per family for 2023-2024. Those renewing before April 1st will receive a 10% discount ($49.50 per dancer or $81 per family) and will be charged on March 25th to current families. The fee includes priority registration, easy enrollment, and special discounts for birthday parties, workshops, and summer camps.
The Annual Membership fee is posted on 3/20 and due on 3/25.

3. Picture Week
Please make sure to mark your calendar for the following dates:
May 15th- May 20th
Pictures will be taken on your normal dance day with a modified schedule. There will be a dressing room time, picture time and dress rehearsal time. More information to follow.
4. Share Week & Practice Videos March 6th-11th
We take the time to share dances with our parents, and with the other classes being held at the same time. This helps the dancers get used to having an audience and get excited about the progress they’ve made so far with their Recital pieces!
Share week will be in person! Parents and students of other classes will be able to watch in the studio this year.
Share Week Schedule can be be found HERE!
How to read the schedule: search for your dancers class by the day of the week they attend. Each class has a specific time they will meet and what studio they will share in.
Example: Tiny Stars Thursday will share at 6pm in the Teal Studio.
All the teachers also videotape this week and videos get uploaded into google classroom. This means parents can sit back and enjoy the performances the dancers are putting on for them!
Looking to practice? Just log in to your google classroom to listen to the music and see the practice videos.
Access Google Classroom Information Here!
Is your dancer in more than one class? Each class has its own google classroom, and videos can be easily and conveniently downloaded to help students practice.
5. Important message about sharing videos and photos to Social Media
Dancers love to perform and we urge you to come into the studio to watch! As we start to work on our recital pieces, we wanted to send a few notes about posting to social media.
When posting a video from class on social media, please make sure it’s only your child, or you have permission if any other child is in the video.
We LOVE to see pictures of our dancers having fun both inside and outside of class, so please tag us when posting on Facebook and/or Instagram (@joyofdancenh). However, we respectfully ask you do not post any FULL videos of choreography you take during class or at any performances(partial clips are great!). This is because rehearsal videos are meant for practice purposes only and are not performance-ready for the public to see. We also want people to be surprised at Recital!
We will be sharing small snippets of pieces on our FaceBook page and encourage you to share those with friends and family. After Recital, we are happy to see videos you have taken of dances posted to social media. In fact, we encourage it! We just ask that you please tag us in your posts so people know where you dance and how to find us. Thank you for your understanding on this!
6. Summer Dance
Our Summer Dance and Camp information was released earlier this week! Priority registration for our dance families runs from 2/27-3/11! Make sure to register during this time to claim your membership savings.
