ALL registration is done through our website: www.mahoganydancearts.com. Our studio software system allows for digital documentation only. Once on the website locate the class you are interested in & click the REGISTER button. You will then be re-directed to the registration page where you will create an account & complete your registration. Throughout the year you can re-access your account through our Parent Portal where you can update payment information, print receipts etc.

Dress code is enforced at Mahogany Dance Arts. We believe this creates a sense of unity & community amongst the dancers as well give the teacher the ability to see & correct lines & technique as needed. Our Dress Requirements are listed on the website. Each class will be listed with pictures that specify attire & shoes required. All items are available for purchase on our online store & we recommend purchasing from there to ensure the correct style & color of attire. Prior to class beginning, you will also receive a “Welcome Letter” that also includes a link to the Dress Requirements information.

  • ALL Full-year dancers participate in our year-end showcase in June. Dancers will require a costume, which ranges from $65.00 – $75.00 per dancer & our Recital package, which includes your tickets and video to the event.

ALL Full year students are asked & encouraged to participate in the Recital. Recital is a celebration of Dance & an opportunity to showcase all your child has learned through out the year. It is a fantastic day of DANCE that your child will LOVE!!! The Recital is held at a professional theatre in or around Calgary. Dancers will also participate in a Recital Rehearsal prior to the big day so they have the experience on being on a stage. Tickets are required for each audience member attending & will be available for purchase with our Recital package.

Parents are not able to watch their child during class, therefore the viewing windows will remain closed but we do schedule 2 observation weeks through out the year where you can sit right in the classroom & view your child’s progress. We enforce this policy as it allows the dancer to fully focus & concentrate on what is happening in the classroom & not be distracted by eyes watching. It also gives dancers a safe platform to learn & enjoy the class without judgment.

If a younger child is feeling anxious or nervous about entering the classroom for the first time we do encourage parents to go in with the child then leave once they are more comfortable. Txs.

Competitive Team is for the dancer who has a passion for dance & performing & wants to take their training to a Competitive level. The demands of this type of program require more from the children so we want to be sure your child is physically & emotionally ready for the program. If your child is interested in this program please contact our directors so we can then assess your child & provide you with additional program information.
