Don't forget to sign your waivers! Waivers must be signed in order to participate in class. You can sign electronically online by logging into your parent portal, or you can sign a paper copy at one of our Open Houses.
You will be receiving an invoice via email from the studio on the first day of each month. You can pay your balance online by logging into your parent portal, or you can pay at the studio via cash, check or credit card. If you prefer to receive a paper copy of your invoice, just let us know and we would be happy to provide that for you.
To ensure that you never miss a tuition payment, you have the option to enroll in auto-pay, and your credit card will automatically be charged on the first of each month.
Current balances on your account (registration fees & costume deposits) are due before the first day of classes in order to participate in class. Adult classes do not have to pay a costume deposit at this time.
As we are getting closer to the start of the dance season, you may be wondering what your child will need for dance class. You can find our dress code on our website at https://www.inspiredcreationsdance.com/dress-code.html. To make it easier to find what you need, you can shop our studio's Online Dance Boutique, find your child's class, and see the required shoes and suggested dancewear. You can purchase those items directly from the website. If you can't find what you need on our Online Dance Boutique, you can visit our studio's Discount Dance page and find additional suggestions for your class.
Not sure of the size? Come to one of our Open House days, and there will be samples of shoes for your child to try on to help you with sizing decisions. If you do not have the proper shoes for the first week of class, that is completely fine!
If you place an order through our Online Dance Boutique, your order will be sent to the studio, and you will be able to pick up your order at one of our Open House days. If you wait until after our Open House dates to order, your order will be given to you as soon as it comes in.
September 18th is National Dance Day!
Learn the Official 2021 National Dance Day Routine:
Established in 2010 by American Dance Movement co-founder, Nigel Lythgoe, and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, National Dance Day is an annual celebration dedicated to dance, that encourages Americans of all ages to incorporate dance into their lives. By creating a focused day of celebration to show support for dance as a valuable form of exercise and of artistic expression, American Dance Movement aims to educate the public about dance and its many benefits, as well as make dance accessible and inclusive to everyone.
American Dance Movement (ADM) believes that participation in dance connects the mind and body, promotes health and wellbeing, connects us with others and enables us to find joy through dance and movement. National Dance Day (NDD) is a day of celebrating dance, in all its forms, and takes place annually on the third Saturday in September.
"Dancing to bring joy and hope to the darkest places"
Our dance studio will be participating in this wonderful event, alongside Fenton Ballet Theatre, Modern Messages Dance Company, and other local dancers, to help two local families fighting childhood cancer.

If you are unable to attend the event but would still like to support this wonderful cause, you will be able to leave a donation at the front desk at the studio once we are open.
Established in 2019, Dancing For A Cure is committed to supporting families faced with childhood cancer -along with other terminal diseases- through dance performance based fundraising.
I wanted to send you an update regarding COVID-19 and our plans for the fall.
At this point, nothing is set in stone regarding mask requirements for the upcoming dance season. We will be monitoring the situation and following the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Livingston County Health Department (LCHD).
The current level of community transmission in Livingston County is high, and the current recommendation for students is the use of masks indoors by all individuals regardless of vaccination status to reduce transmission risk, especially due to the circulating and highly contagious Delta variant. Since a majority of our dance students are young and are not eligible for a vaccine, our number one priority is to keep them, as well as all of our dance families, safe. I realize that every dance studio and school district will approach this issue differently, and there are many varying opinions about this issue. My hope for this dance season was that we would not have to wear masks. However, no matter how I personally feel about masks, we will be following the recommendations of the CDC, MDHHS, and LCHD, and this will not be up for debate at our studio, nor will we make our decision based on what others are choosing to do. Based on current recommendations, we will be erring on the side of caution at Inspired Creations Dance Studio to protect those who are more vulnerable to the virus, myself included.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with my story, I am a fairly recent cancer survivor. I have an unvaccinated 3 year old (who I was pregnant with when I received my cancer diagnosis), and I will have a newborn baby this fall. I will also have to go back on my post-cancer treatment which will affect how my immune system functions, despite my vaccination status. I truly appreciate your cooperation with our COVID-19 policies to keep me and my family safe during these unprecedented times.
I am so excited to get back to dance this fall and am looking forward to sharing the joy that dance brings with all of you. I completely understand if you choose not to join us this year due to the mask requirement at our studio. I wish that we did not need to wear them, but again, safety of all of our students and families is my number one priority. We are going to do everything we can to reduce the risk of transmission at our studio. More detailed information about our mask requirements and COVID-19 policies and procedures will be sent out closer to the start of our season, and we will continue to update our policies and mask requirements throughout the year based on the recommendations of the CDC, MDHHS, and LCHD.
Keep in mind that these decisions regarding COVID-19 are not easy decisions to make, and a lot of thought has gone into our decisions regarding our COVID-19 policies. The decisions we make regarding COVID-19 are not up for debate and are solely based on the recommendations of the CDC, MDHHS, and LCHD, not personal feelings. If you choose not to dance with us this year due to our COVID-19 policies, we completely understand and respect your decision, and we hope that we can share our love for dance with you in the future.
Thank you for understanding,
Inspired Creations Dance Studio
