We are so excited to welcome back all of our dancers to SMDC! It was a wild summer with lots of camps, classes and our major remodel. We are now ready to get back into weekly classes with all of our students and families. 


Studio Remodel

It has been a mad dash to the finish line to get our two new studios ready for classes this week. As you will notice, although the studios are ready for our dancers, we still have a lot of finishing touches that need to take place. Please “pardon our dust” over the next couple of weeks as we work to continue to get all of the pieces in place.


Continuing road work on Sierra Madre Blvd 

If you have been in town over the last few weeks you are aware that the city is doing major construction on the road through the downtown area. This is impacting all of our parking on Sierra Madre Blvd. The construction is set to continue through the month and should be complete in October. Please try to utilize public parking near the park as well as the public lot behind the shops south of the boulevard. Also, anticipate that the parking lot will be crowded at peak pick up and drop off times, give yourself extra time heading into class and please be cautious while driving in the lot.


Merchandise Log

We have expanded our merchandise and uniform area in the lobby. If your dancer needs shoes, leotards or tights we have a nice selection available. We will have someone working at the desk during peak hours in the afternoon, but if no one is available, please utilize the merchandise check out log. If you need an item you may write your name and item in our log book and then it will be charged to your family account.


Adult Dance & Fitness Classes
