Dance Classes for Children in Golden and Arvada, CO

Parents’ Most Frequently Asked Questions

What should my child wear?

Please see our dress code page for dress requirements for each class.

When do classes start and end?

Our season runs just like a school year.  Classes begin on August 16th and continue through May 19th, culminating with an end of the year performance on May 20th, 2023.

Do we have to commit to an entire year?

We always recommend that dancers participate for the full season as they work toward the Spring Showcase, an incredibly rewarding and empowering experience.

We do understand that sometimes plans change and you may need to drop a class.  In this case, simply fill out a FCD Drop Form by the 14th of the month and you will not be charged for the upcoming month.

Can we join in after the season has started?

Yes!  Enrollment is open until February 1st!

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. 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.

Can I come into the studio to watch class?

For students 5 and up, we ask that parents watch from outside of 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 every 8 weeks.  Parent observation days are listed in our FAMILY CALENDAR.

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.

What if my child needs to miss class?

Consistent attendance is imperative to the growth and success of your student.  Please do your best to ensure your child attends every class with his/her designated group.  In the event your child needs to miss a class, you can let us know in your PARENT PORTAL.  You can schedule up to 4 makeup classes per year in your portal

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.”
