Class Times

Younger students are to arrive no sooner than 5 minutes before class time, unless specific arrangements have been made with their teacher. We do not have the staff available to watch over these little ones prior to the start of class. Also, parents should arrive promptly to pick up students from class for this same reason.

Dance Attire

Dance shoes, tights and leotards can be purchased (at competitive prices). As we set up our new office space, please reach out via email (manyetdance@gmail.com) to schedule time to purchase dancewear.

Fun Weeks

This is a break from the normal routine.

  • Tuesday, October 25th – Monday, October 31 – (all classes) Students may wear old recital costumes or any color of dancewear to this class if they wish. We incorporate fun and educational dance and coordination activities into these classes.
  • Wednesday, December 14th – Tuesday, December 20th – (all classes) This is our Christmas party time. More details will be in our December newsletter.
  • Monday, March 27th – Saturday, April 1st – (all classes) Manyet Spirit Week! Students should show their Manyet pride by dressing old costumes, Manyet dance wear or dance wear in the color purple.
  • For the younger classes, an additional Fun Week may be scheduled by individual teachers.



Every year (around September) Manyet Dance holds a fundraiser to earn credits towards FREE RECITAL ITEMS in the Ready – Set – Recital! bundle. Student participation in this fundraiser is optional. Students can earn recital bundle credits for each pre-determined amount of merchandise sold. The credits will help to earn free recital items such as costumes, t-shirts and recital videos. This is especially helpful for families with more than one dancer or students taking multiple classes. Money should be collected at the time the order is taken. All orders must be paid for with one check, or money order, when the order is turned in. We will only accept checks from our dance families and any checks from our dance families should be made out to Manyet Dance.

Every year we make arrangements with a company that specializes in dance photography, to photograph our students. Full length portraits will be taken at our studios on two separate dates in April of 2023. Please sign up for an appointment time that is convenient for you, as soon as the sign-up website is released in March of 2023. Sign up for separate time slots for each costume change. Also, on the day of, please notify the photographer in advance if there will be costume changes. The dance studio usually receives a 5×7 complimentary portrait of each student photographed to be displayed in our waiting area.


“Ready-Set-Recital!” Bundle (costumes and fees)

All dance students are invited to perform in the annual recital. In order to simplify your life, we are once again combining some of your dancer’s needs with your dancer’s memories in our Ready – Set – Recital! bundle. If you choose to NOT be in our spring 2023 recital(s), you must notify the office by October 15th, 2022. If you do not opt out, your dancer will be measured for/ordered a costume and you will be responsible for the FULL COST of the costume and/or recital bundle. We order our recital costumes early to help ensure costumes arrive on time.

What does your Manyet Dance Ready – Set – Recital! bundle include?

  • one custom recital t-shirt
  • one recital video
  • recital tights
  • recital costume fees

What does this mean for your family?

  • Your dancer’s recital t-shirt is already ordered.
  • Your recital video is already ordered.
  • Your dancer has the correct color, size, and style of recital tights already ordered.

And the BEST part???

  • The total cost for ALL included items is divided into 3 easy payments (see the list of dates below!).
  • This will help you budget accordingly to be prepared for the recital.
  • No last minutes trips and payments to get the correct recital tights!
  • By organizing this bundle for you, you are getting the best price on tights, t-shirts, and recital videos.

As always, we consciously try to keep costume costs to a minimum. If desired, see our fundraiser packet to help with these fees. Students with unpaid fees will not receive their costume until their account is up to date. Any student with an unpaid balance on rehearsal day will not participate in the rehearsal or the show.

Click here for the cost break down for each class type. This break down includes everything mentioned in the Ready – Set – Recital! bundle. This does not include your tuition cost or any dance shoes.

Due dates for “Ready – Set – Recital!” bundle payments coincide with tuition due dates and are as follows:

There are no refunds on Ready – Set – Recital! bundle payments.

Recital Dates

Every year we hold an end of the year annual recital. This enables the dancers to show off their abilities and talents in routines choreographed by their individual instructors. All dance students are invited to perform in the annual recital.

Our recital dates are usually held in early May. We are in the process of finalizing the contracts and will notify you with more details as soon as we have a confirmation.


Recital Tickets

Dance recital tickets are handled with a lottery pull. Because many students order several tickets we feel it necessary to fill orders with two ticket pulls. This method gives everyone a fair opportunity to receive their preferred seating first. In this way, we can assure that all of our parents get their choice of seating before all others.

The first draw is for a limited amount of tickets (which will be listed on the order form). Keep in mind that you may order as many tickets as you like in the second draw. Payment for all tickets ordered must accompany the order form. All seats are reserved. And, before fulfilling ticket orders, all outstanding balances in your account must be paid.

Recital ticket order forms will be distributed in March/April. Any student with unpaid balances will not receive tickets until balance is paid in full. Again, please keep up to date with your payments. Any student with an unpaid balance on rehearsal day will not participate in the rehearsal or the show.


Registration Process

All students wishing to enroll must complete our online registration. that will open in May each year. There is a yearly registration fee per student.

$15 for registrations submitted and paid before July 1st
$20 for registrations submitted and paid from July 1st – August 1st
$25 for registrations submitted and paid after August 1st

There are no refunds on registration fees or tuition payments.


Severe Weather Policy

In case of severe weather (heavy snow, ice or tornadic activity), an email will be sent no later than two hours prior to the start of class, directly to the email accounts of the classes being affected. You may also check the home page of the website, our Facebook page and our Instagram account for updates on any class cancellations.

When there are multiple classes for the same age and level, your child can make up a missed class during another regularly scheduled class time. Refer to the 2022-2023 class schedule to view the other available class times and then please call the office to confirm the make-up class for your child.

If the following classes are cancelled, the teacher will be responsible for scheduling a make-up day for the class: pointe, Dance Troupe, tumbling, hip hop and adult classes.


Watch Weeks

There will be 3 full watch weeks during our dance year.  Parents wishing to view the entire class are welcomed. At this time, one adult per student will be permitted to sit inside the classroom and view the class.  Please arrange babysitting for other siblings as they will not be permitted inside the classroom.  We do not make exceptions.  Your special performer deserves your undivided attention and other children can often be a distraction.  Classroom doors will be left open at the teacher’s discretion. Recital procedures will be discussed during the last half hour of the April watch week.
