Fall Registration! Plus info on Online Bill Pay

It's hard to believe Summer is already coming to a close! But that means it's time for more dancing! Yah!
This post will have some info on our new online registration and account management.
First, thank you for registering with Dance City for our 2011-2012 Dance Year! Our Annual Recital will be June 2, 2012. It's never too early to add that to your calender and share the date with family and friends!
Thursday classes will begin August 18th, and Monday-Wednesday classes beginning the following week, Aug. 22, 23 & 24. This way all classes will meet two times in August. August tuition will be half price of Regular Tuition since it is only half a month. August is the only month that the pricing changes. May will be your last month of tuition for this dance year. 
This is our first year using our new REAL Online Registration Process. I believe that we may be the only studio in the state of Arkansas to offer this service. We're still setting up our online payment system, but when it goes live, you'll be able to visit our website again to select a Tuition billing plan. This will allow you to pay your bill automatically each month or you can continue to send in checks if that is what you prefer.
All Dance City families will be able to visit our website and look over their online statements through our "Customer Portal" much like an online banking system. This should improve your Dance City experience by letting you look over your account at any time that is convenient to you. The link to your account will always be in the right-hand side of this website.
As always, we are working to improve your Dance City Studio experience and welcome your feedback.

This will be a great Dance Year and are so happy to share it with you and your student!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Welcome to the new DanceCityStudio.com!

Hello! Thanks for visiting our new site! You've probably noticed things look a little different around here, but it is the same Dance City Studios from Hot Springs, Arkansas. This post will explain what's new on this site and how you can use it to stay up-to-date on the what's happening at Dance City.

Introducing the Dance City Blog.

To the parents reading: We know you're are busy and the easier we can make it for you to know what is going on with your child's dance class the better! So with that in mind, we're launching a Dance City blog here which we'll use as a bulletin board, of sorts, to post important dates, reminders and information you need to know. We'll also share photos and stories from the studio and other fun things from time to time.

To the students reading: Welcome! We don't want the parents to have all the fun, so we hope you'll enjoy our new site too!

Stay Up-to-Date with Social Media!

If you use Facebook, come check out the Dance City Studio page, which we use as another way to share important info, post photos, as well as stay in-touch with you all. Our Facebook page is a also good place to look for sudden updates like the studio closing due to nasty weather.

Have a Question? Check the FAQ Page or Ask Us!

FAQ stands for "Frequently Asked Questions" and we've set up an FAQ page to answer some of these common questions. If you're wondering when registration is held, where we're located, when our annual recital is held or a number of other questions, look there first. We'll be adding new answers to questions as needed, so feel free to suggest questions we should answer there.

If your question isn't answered on the FAQ page, that's fine too, because we've added a new Contact Us page that has a handy form for emailing us a question. Just type in your question or comment and we'll get back to you shortly with an answer!

We hope to add more information to the site, but wanted to get it live and find out what you think and what information would be useful to you, so let us know! Leave a comment or send us an email.

Finally, because I can never say it enough, I just want to say a big THANK YOU! to all of you for supporting Dance City and what we are trying to accomplish by teaching your kids to love dance. This is a dream come true for me and it wouldn't be possible without all of you! So thank you!
