The Fall Session 2017 will begin on August 5th and will run through November 16th.  The session will last from 11-13 weeks, depending on the class. (Specific dates off for each class are listed in the description.)  All classes will be off for fall break: Oct. 16 through the 28th.  The Showcase will take place on November 18th at 4:00.
To sign up for a class, either clink the link below, or go to the “Sign Ups” tab in the upper right hand corner of the “Home” page on the website.  Then click on “Class and Voice Lesson Sign Up” in the drop down menu.  All classes are listed there as well.  Once you have signed up, you will receive an invoice a few days before the first class.  You may pay with a credit card on-line through that invoice, or bring cash or a check made out to The Biz on the first day of class.

Dance Shoe Note:  If you’re wanting to purchase dance shoes, you may be able to find them at Payless for an inexpensive price.  If you are wanting to be fitted for shoes, we recommend Kinney Dancewear, which is off of 62nd St., just east of Keystone, on the north side of the road.  We also have two baskets of shoes that have been donated.  Anyone is welcome to go through those baskets and try on any shoes you find that you may need.  We also ask that you consider donating any dance shoes you no longer need.

All classes need a minimum of 5 people in order for it to be a “go,” so tell your friends!
