Frequently Asked Questions

We hope this page helps answer some of your questions! As always, please feel free to call or text our office at 361-814-4307 or email if you have any other questions.

How long are classes?

Tippi Toes® classes are 45 minutes long. Our school year session runs from the end of August – July (with a few breaks such as Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring break). During the summer we use the month of August to train teachers and work on annual planning. All dancers will need to sign back up for classes each year in August.

We just found out about your classes. Is it too late to join?

We have open enrollment throughout the year, so it is never too late to join a class!

What is your enrollment fee?

We have a once-a-year enrollment fee of $35 that is due at the time of enrollment. For siblings, this enrollment fee is $20.

What does your enrollment fee cover?

This fee covers our usage of our online monthly payment system, supplies used in class and a Tippi Toes gift to each dancer.

How is monthly tuition handled?

When you purchase your tuition package, your credit card will automatically be charged tuition on the 1st of each month.

What happens if we join mid-month?

Your tuition for the following month will be prorated accordingly.

What happens if we can’t continue dance this month?

Please contact our office before the 1st of the month if you wish to discontinue classes for that month so that you are not charged.

What should my dancer wear to class?

Tippi Toes® encourages each dancer to wear dance attire or one of our Tippi Toes® leotards or t-shirts along with tights, leggings, or a skirt. For the safety of your child, pink leather ballet slippers are preferred for Tiny Toes and Combo Classes. For Hip Hop/Jazz non-restrictive clothing to move in and tennis shoes or black slip on jazz shoes are preferred.

At our school locations, attire is up to you! Your dancer may bring a change of dance clothes or wear non-restrictive school clothes. Ballet slippers are preferred. Please let your school teacher know if your dancer needs to change before Tippi Toes class starts.

Do you have dance recitals?

We have dance recitals in December and May. Although these are optional, we encourage all of our dancers to participate as it is a fun and special day for them to be STARS! These recitals are held at off-site locations. Each class performs in one of the 30-minute recitals held throughout the day. Information about recital will be sent home via email, newsletters and flyers throughout the year.

Toddler & Me dancers have in-class Rookie Recitals in May. Family and friends are invited to these performances and they are held in the familiar environment of their Tippi Toes® class to avoid stage fright!

How much is the costume fee and when is it due?

Costume fee for Winter Recitals is $35+tax. Winter Costume Fee is due on October 10th. Costumes for the Spring Recitals are $65+tax ($40+tax for Toddler & Me classes). Spring Costume Fee is due on February 15th.

If you choose for your child to not participate in either recital, you must contact our office at 361-814-4307 to let us know that you are not purchasing a costume.

What other fees are associated with Recitals?

We have NO other fees associated with our recital. We do not charge an additional recital fee nor do we sell tickets. You can bring as many people as you’d like to watch your dancer SHINE on stage!

Do we rent the costume?

Costumes are purchased and are therefore yours to own! We do not ask for costumes back after the recital.

How do we discontinue class?

If you need to stop classes at any time, please contact our office by phone or email. We can easily take care of that for you!

Do you offer any other services beside dance classes?

Yes! We offer Parent’s Night Out, Daddy Daughter Dances, Mother Daughter Tea Parties, and Drop and Shops. We also offer several fun dance camps throughout the summer. We will send more information home regarding our camps and events throughout the year. Follow us on Facebook for more information about upcoming events! We would LOVE to see your dancer there! Camps are open to the public, so feel free to invite your friends!

Are classes open to the public?

School locations are currently only open to children attending those schools. All other classes are open to the public!
