WELCOME BACK!
We are pleased to welcome both our new customers and valued returning customers! We are looking forward to another educational and exciting year. We ask for your cooperation and patience the first few weeks of classes as we make schedule changes in order to accommodate as many customer needs as possible. Please feel free to SCHEDULE A CONFERENCE via email or phone if there are any questions regarding your child's placement or any class changes your schedule may necessitate.  Please do not concern the individual teacher with questions of this nature during class changeovers as they are trying to start classes on time. As always, if there is anything else we can assist you with, please let us know.

NEW Dance Computer Program!!!
For your convenience, we are currently working on an ESOD Parent Portal to include Online Registration, Online Payments, Auto Pay (through our website), Tuition payment reminders and so much more! You will be able to check the balance on your account through the Portal with a password, then log in to our website to pay the amount. Studio bulletins & important news will be shared through the ESOD Parent Portal. Please note that this program is new to our staff and we are still learning everything it has to offer for our customers convenience. Please be patient, there may be a few errors and kinks we will have to work out. Our intention is to have this all running smoothly and fully functioning by October 1st. All customers will be receiving an email with login & password.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
