Where are you located?

We are located next to Magnolia Commons at 124 Market Street, New Bern, NC 28560.  

When does dance start?

We are excited to offer our dancers a variety of class options. Attitude Dance Center offers a Fall and Spring season. Our Fall season runs from August to December, with a recital performance in early to mid-December. While our Spring season will run from January to May, with a recital performance in early to mid-May. Performance dates are dependent on performance facility availability. This flexibility of split seasons will allow our dancers with interests in partaking in fall or spring sports activities to be able to enjoy both sports and dance together or in opposite seasons. Of course, we are happy to enroll any and all of our dancers for an entire dance year which will provide two recital performance opportunities.

What are your current rates?

Each class is $60 per month or $300 for the Fall or Spring Season

Registration is $75 per dancer per season. Additional dancers in a family will have a registration fee of $35 for each child with a family max of $225. 

Registration is REQUIRED for every term. Registration for the entire dance year (Fall and Spring Terms) is $115. $75 will be paid at the time of Fall Term Registration, the remaining $40 will be drafted on Oct. 15th when Spring Registration opens.    

Registration fees include an Attitude Dance Center shirt that will be used for all public events and will be required for dancers to wear upon arrival at all recital performances. Shirts will rotate between short-sleeved and long-sleeved for each season.  


What is your dress code?

Black, pink, or aqua/teal leotards are required. Tights are highly encouraged for classes. Dancers may wear dance shorts, skirts, and/or leggings. All dancers are required to have their hair pulled back, buns are preferred. Jewelry is not to be worn during classes. Proper dance shoes for each style should be readily available to each dancer for each class.  

Dress Codes DO NOT apply for our A.M. Preschool Drop-in classes, although dress code rules are encouraged.  

Approved dancewear and shoes can be found and purchased in our online store to be shipped and picked up at the studio. 

How much are costumes?

Each class has an $80 Recital Costume fee that will include a dance costume, (1) pair of tights, and a garment bag.  Additional tights may be purchased and are encouraged for backup.  

*Please note that while Combo-style classes will learn both tap and ballet in class, they will only perform one style in the end-of-season recital. This will only require one costume and will reduce the need for quick changes backstage. Styles to be performed in the recital will rotate to allow our year-long dancers to perform both a tap and ballet dance.    

What is the difference between Preschool Drop-In Classes and Preschool Combo Classes?

We are excited to be able to offer two styles of Preschool age classes to our dance families. Our first is the traditional Preschool combo class. In this class, dancers will learn both tap and ballet styles. Our A.M. Preschool Drop-In classes are a 1-hour class priced at $10 per class or you may purchase a 10-class Punch Card for $90 or a 5-class Punch Card for $45; Punch Cards have a 6-month expiration. Our Drop-In classes are designed to be fun and engaging for young children and aim to encourage them to explore their bodies and the space around them through movement and dance.
