We offer toddler classes, Preschool classes, Ballet/Tap/Jazz Pointe classes for Kindergarten-High School, and Competition/Performace team for Kindergarten-High School!

Our studio is dedicated to improving your child’s love and awareness of dance. Our classes are geared towards children 15 months & up. We specialize in teaching ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, creative movement, and lyrical.

We also have two competition teams:
Tiny Stars and Shining Stars.

All of our students, preschool and up perform at least 4 times each year!


Tuition is due on the first of each month. There will be a $5 late fee added after that date. This tuition policy requires that all classes are pre-paid. There are no refunds for tuition for any reason. IF YOUR CHILD QUITS, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL CONTINUE TO BE BILLED FOR TUITION UNTIL YOU CALL THE STUDIO AND LEAVE A MESSAGE TO STOP BILLING.

I ask that payment please be mailed in since there is not time allotted between classes. Please mail payments to:

Star Spangled Dance Academy
725 6th Ave So #20
Brookings, SD 57006

You are charged for all classes that are held, even if your child is absent. There is a 10% discount for paying tuition yearly and a 5% discount for paying each semester.

Check this out: Save $$$ on tuition by prepaying! Ask Emily if Interested. Families of 3 or more students get a 5% discount.

Tap: Leotard, tights, black tap shoes
Jazz: Leotard, tights, optional jazz pants, black jazz shoes
Pom Pon: Comfy shorts and top. Good athletic shoes.

Bad Weather -If Brookings schools are cancelled or let out early dance will also be cancelled.

Recital- There is a $10 recital fee per student due at the time of registration. This is to cover the rental of the facility. Students will enjoy participating in the winter and spring recital. It will be a fun time for students and parents. (Recital dates will be announced the end of September)

Attendance- Attendance will be taken at each class. Recognition will be given at recital to students that have perfect attendance. Good attendance is crucial as each class builds on skills learned in the previous lessons. Frequent tardiness or absences may require private “catch up” lessons at the rate of $10 per half hour. Three or more absences in a row and your child can be dropped from the class.

Class Observation- Parents’ observation days will be the first week of November and the first week of March. Observing in the class at other times is not allowed. Except in the toddler’s class parents are welcome to stay if they wish.

I look forward to seeing you in class this year!
