We set a limit on enrollment to provide the best experience for each dancer. This means that classes fill up quickly. When this happens, we start a wait list to get as many dancers in as we can. This also means we do not have room for drop-in students unfortunately. Thank you for your understanding. Contact us at info@momodancetheatre.org for any questions or concerns.
