Frequently asked questions
Attire & Shoes
Where can I purchase dance shoes?
We use Mark's Dancewear in Johnston, IA for our shoe and accessory needs. You may call or visit them anytime and let them know you dance at Elite Dance by Nicole. They will set you up with the shoes you need.
What type of shoes does my dancer need?
PRE-K & K-1:
What should my dancer wear to dance class?
All dancers must wear dance appropriate attire. That includes leotards, form fitting tanks or t-shirts, booty shorts. No loose fitting clothing or sweatshirts. Hair must be pulled back and out of the dancer's face.
Can parents watch dance class?
No, parents are not allowed to watch. We do have a designated Parent Watch Week - typically in November and April. That week we invite parents to to watch class.
How will I know if classes are cancelled?
In the case of early dismissal or cancellation due to WINTER weather: We follow the Knoxville Community School District on cancellations. If KCSD cancels school or dismisses early, we will cancel dance classes. We post cancellation announcements to our Facebook Page, Facebook Groups, and BAND. Emails will also be sent.
