Covid-19 Protocols and Common Questions/ Policies About The Upcoming Season
Are you taking precautions for in person classes due to Covid-19?
Yes. PEDC staff and students are required to wear a mask while in the Dance Facility while also following social distancing rules. Hand sanitizing is done before students enter the building. PEDC is also reducing the amount of students that are allowed in the classroom to allow for proper distancing between students. For this reason, it is important to register early as the class sizes are limited. PEDC has also increased the cleaning and sanitizing of the facility.
Due to covid-19, classes are drop off only. The lobby will be closed to parents until further notice. This will allow PEDC to limit the traffic in the building. Please contact the dance center if you have any questions concerning this policy. Download PEDC in person class policies.
Are masks required at PEDC while dancing?
UPDATE: Starting March 28th 2022, wearing a protective mask while in the building will be optional.

PEDC does offer multiple class discounts as well as family discounts. Download the schedule for the complete price list.
How many times a week does the class meet?
Classes meet once a week. If a student is enrolled in only 1 class, for example Intro Hip Hop, the class meets once a week. Students can register for multiple classes in different styles which may meet on different days during the week.
Is there a dress code for class?
Yes. You can download the dress code here- Dresscode
Is there an end of year production?
Yes. PEDC will be holding the annual recital at the R.P. Funding Center the weekend of June 4th-5th 2022. If due to Covid-19 we are still not able to hold the recital at the R.P. Funding, PEDC will host a showcase at the Dance Center.
Since PEDC has 3 shows during recital weekend, how do I know what show my child is in?
You can see what show your child is in by reviewing the class schedule. Located next to your child's class on the schedule their is either an A, B or C listed. This designates what show your child will perform in. If your child is taking multiple classes or their are siblings that are taking multiple/different classes, the schedule will tell you if all the classes are in the same show. If a student takes classes that are in different shows, then they will perform in two different shows.
Do I purchase a recital costume for my child?
Yes. Parents purchase a costume for each class their child participates in. Costume prices are outlined on the class schedule and payments are due by November 15th 2021. Once the costume has been ordered in November, there are no refunds if the child/parent chooses to discontinue classes. The student will then receive the costume when it arrives at the dance center. It is the responsibility of the student/parent to pick up the costume at the dance center.
