    BlueJay Dance Program

    The BlueJay Dance Program offers classes in a variety of different styles for anybody aged three and up. Included in the cost of every class is instruction, recital costume, and a group picture. For the fall session, the recital rehearsal night will be scheduled the week of June 3 and the Dance Recital is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 8 in the JHHS Performing Arts Center. If you are paying by credit card, the option of utilizing a payment plan is available. The option of paying in full at the time of registration still exists (check, cash, or card), but we are also able to offer the ability to spread payments out over the course of the Spring session. By choosing the payment plan, the first of five equal payments is charged to your card at time of registration, with the final four payments automatically charged to your card on Feb. 1, Mar. 1, Apr. 1, and May. 1. Once you register, you are committed to all five payments as they will automatically be charged on those dates. Also, if your student qualifies for free/reduced lunches and has a current application on file, they are eligible to receive the Larissa Androli Dance Scholarship. Please stop in to the community education office to fill out an application prior to registration. ***New This Year*** Dance With Me Parent/Child Class (Child 18 months - 3 year old, with a parent/caregiver): Introduction to dance class.
