Where in Gorton Community Center is LPAA satellite located?

  • On the second floor in the Friends Room.

 

Do you have a dress code?

  • Yes, please Click Here >>

  • A dress code helps teachers see how well students are implementing the technical aspects of dance being taught: body alignment, stretched feet, extended knees, etc.

  • For parents, a dress code takes the hassle out of readying their child for class, and it’s less expensive than keeping their children’s closets full of the latest dance styles.

  • For students, a dress code promotes equality in the classroom and allows the student to focus on training without being distracted by what others are wearing.

Where do I find Recital information?

Can my child enroll in a full season class once the season has begun?

  • Many of our classes run from Sept-May however we also offer shorter sessions throughout the school year and a summer session.  

  • We except new students throughout the year in our Early Childhood classes, however recital participation may not be possible pending the date of enrollment.

  • Having new students join a Full Season (Sept-May) class mid-year would force existing students to unnecessarily review the previously taught material. For this reason new students are not accepted into Full Season (Sept-May) classes after November 15.

    • Exception 1: Students with previous training may be allowed to join an existing class, depending on their ability level.

    • Exception 2: Private lessons maybe available to catch a student up.

    • Exception 3: Students enrolled in a Sessional class may be shifted into a Full Season class.
