Gymnastics & Dance Wait List Information

We offer a gymnastics and dance program from toddlers to teens: from our preschool classes to our skilled boys and girls classes. We facilitate a relaxed and fun environment where every child will feel comfortable learning.

Wait List Information

When signing up for the waitlist, and are interested in both gymnastics and dance, you will need to sign up for then separately.

Due to the large volume of calls we receive, we are unable to return calls in regards the status. You may inquire of a general status by emailing us.

You will only be contacted by email when there is availability for your child's age group; therefore, your waitlist number is NOT indicative of how quickly you will be contacted.

Remember that you will only be contacted by email. We cannot stress enough the importance of keeping your information up to date on your account so that we may contact you when there is availability.

If you signed up for the waitlist prior to October 26, 2016, you have not lost your place on our list.
