Policies & FAQs
Children and parents choose Dance Unlimited for various reasons. Some enjoy dance simply for the fun of it. It is exhilarating and very rewarding! Still, others see it as an avenue to build self-esteem and poise, as a means of expression of imagination and creativity, or as a route towards socialization and friendships. Whatever your reason, you’ll find it at Dance Unlimited. Dancing is one of the best methods for developing the mind and body, even at the young age of two.
It challenges and therefore, improves all six components of physical fitness: muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, body composition, and neuromuscular coordination. Dance also adds to one’s grace, self-confidence, sense of rhythm, appreciation of music, and overall conditioning. From an emotional, psychological, and social aspect, dance is very rewarding.
Even young dancers may find a healthy release of tension while exploring a sense of creativity and artistic empowerment.
In a classroom situation, students appreciate the value of working hard and maintaining self-discipline while learning the importance of respect and loyalty. In addition to exercising their body, dancers also challenge their intellect on both a kinesthetic and creative level. All dancers, whether young or old, will learn to dance in an ensemble and work as a team.
Whatever your goals, we hope to help you in your progress toward achieving them. Dance your way to a healthy body and a happy life!
Our facility consists of four dance studios and one acting/dance studio and a voice studio. We have a professional faculty and floating wood floors for long-term body/joint protection.
The Studio Opens at 3:30p
Please do not drop your dancer off any earlier than 3:30p.
Please make sure your children are picked up promptly after class. Younger students get very nervous when parents are not prompt picking them up. Students should not have to wait more than 5 minutes. Please remind your children not to go outside unless you are there!
If a student decides to drop a class after the LAST DAY of the month, there will NOT be any refunds issued.
All drop forms must be submitted before 6pm on the LAST BUSINESS day of month.
Viewing Windows and TV lobby monitor.
In order to foster each dancer’s progress, please observe students thru windows or lobby TV. Students, especially those new to dance, improve at a more accelerated pace without the scrutiny and pressure of parents, peers, and other observers peering throughout the window. The dancers can see you thru the windows.

When weather conditions result in local school closings please call the studio after 2pm, check our Facebook page, and check our website. If we close due to weather, classes will not be made up on a separate day, however we do want you to attend another class of the same level for a make up. If any school cancels, that does NOT mean we will, so please check with us! Also, weather can worsen during the day and we may have to cancel when school does not. 90% of our faculty do NOT live in Edmond and may or may not be able to get to the studio when we have weather situations.
Our office hours are Monday through Thursday 3:30pm to 9:30pm. Phone messages are not checked Thursday after 9:00pm, and until Monday at 4:00pm.
