Simply fill out a FCD Drop Form a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the start of the quarter.
Drop Form Due Dates:
- Quarter 2: October 18
- Quarter 3: December 20
- Quarter 4: February 14
When should I drop my child off?
Please drop your child off 5-10 minutes before their scheduled class. We are not able to accommodate unsupervised students in the lobby/studio for more than 10 minutes before class.
Does it cost extra to do the Showcase?
Yes, there is a $115 showcase fee due on Feb. 1st and a $34 Showcase Intensive fee due April 4th. This covers the cost of costumes, rehearsals, Showcase venue and other associated expenses.
Is the Showcase mandatory?
While the Showcase is not mandatory, performance experience is a valuable component to a well rounded dance education. Working towards a performance is motivating and empowering and we strongly encourage all of our students to participate.
Will students still need to wear masks?
We are strongly encouraging but not requiring that students or staff wear masks. FCD instructors are fully vaccinated. Please note that this is subject to change.
Can I come into the studio to watch class?
For students 5 and up, parents are not permitted in the studio during class. This rule is designed with the success of our dancers in mind! We will host a parent observation day for the last 10 minutes of class on the last day of each quarter.
For students under 5 years old, parents may watch class from inside the studio or wait outside. We trust that as parents, you know what will be most successful for your child and ask that you decide accordingly. Please use your best judgement about whether your presence is supportive or distracting for your child.
Do you offer free trial classes?
We do not offer a free trial class. If you register for a class and your child does not enjoy the first class, we would be happy to refund your tuition minus initial class fee and $5 service charge.
What if my child needs to miss class?
If your child needs to miss class, please fill out an ABSENCE FORM. Consistent attendance is imperative to the growth and success of your student. We do not offer make-up classes for absences. Please do your best to ensure your child attends every class with his/her designated group.
What if class is cancelled due to bad weather?
In the event that classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, a makeup class will be scheduled.

Skilled and caring instructors…
“Dillon (4yr) has taken dance for over a year, and though he always loved it, it wasn’t until he started taking classes through Full Circle Dance that we really noticed him taking it more seriously. Not only has his dancing improved, but we have noticed growth in his self-confidence as well! Full Circle Dance is convenient and affordable and the instructors are skilled, patient, creative and caring. I would highly recommend them to any parent interested in getting their child involved in dance.”
