Evaluations: Dance evaluations will be given out at the end of each season. They are completed by the instructor and reviewed by the dance director. This will give the parent an overview of your child’s progress and placement for the following season.
Communication: Fusion Center for Dance is green! A monthly newsletter will be sent via email each month with important information.
Recital: All dancers are welcome and encouraged to participate in the annual recital. This is held at the Mendel Center, typically the 3rd Saturday of June.
