Welcome To SCD!

We welcome all returning students, new students and families. Here are some friendly reminders as we get back in the swing of things!!


Please let us know if you are unable to make it to class. You can either let your teacher know, or call our office at 204-452-1239.


Arriving for class on time makes a big difference to how a class runs and progresses. Latecomers are distracting for students and teachers, and are disruptive to the class. Plan to arrive early, and allow time for parking and changing. This will ensure everyone is able to make the most of their time in class.

Dress Code

Please make sure you have the proper dance attire for class.  Refer to our class descriptions for requirements of each class. Wearing the proper attire allows the teacher to see alignment of the body, and make corrections.

Lost Dance Clothes and Shoes

Remember to label all dance wear and shoes (right AND left). We have a lost and found for clothing in the women’s change room near the shower.  Please check with the office for missing shoes or jewelry.

Lockers in the change rooms are assigned to our Professional Program students only. We encourage you to leave valuables at home, or welcome you to bring them into the studio with you.
