*Please note that all registrations must be received in person. Fax and mailed copies are not accepted.

FIRST TIER Re-enrollment
Begins Monday, May 22nd at 12:00 pm and ends Friday, May 26th at 12noon
(NO NEED TO STAND IN LINE) Current Greenwich Dance Studio students are eligible to re-enroll in classes they currently take (same day, same time, same teacher). Students who are moving up a level (in the same style of dance) due to ability are also allowed to do so during this week. If you wish to add an additional class, or change classes, you must wait to do so until the second tier of registration. If your child is eligible to move up, GDS will place her in the appropriate level, even if you have not specified this request.
PLEASE NOTE: It is most helpful to us if we receive your re-enrollment form earlier in the week so that we have time to prepare for Tier 2.
SECOND TIER Current students add/change classes, Waitlisted from Fall 2016
Begins Tuesday, May 30th – Doors open at 6am
Current students are able to add or change classes; siblings of current students; current students enrolled at GDS Petite; and students who were waitlisted for the 2016-17 session are eligible to register for classes. This includes adding new classes, changing days or times, or requesting different teachers.
THIRD TIER New Students
Begins Thursday, June 1st – Doors open at 6am
Registration is open to the public. Your registration form must be completed in its entirety. The class name, day and time as well as participant’s personal information must be provided as requested.
THIRD TIER DISCLAIMER:
Typically, GDS classes fill up after First and Second Tier registration. However, submitting your forms in Third Tier puts your dancer on appropriate lists for the next available spaces in current classes. In addition it provides you with Second Tier status the following registration year.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Registrations will NOT be processed on the spot. However, every form will be dated and time-stamped so that GDS will be sure of the order in which they were received. Please anticipate a wait time due to the high volume of people, however, please know that having your form reviewed on the spot greatly benefits you and saves time in the long run.
If you are unsure of which level your child is, simply write the class name without the level. GDS will place your child in the appropriate level based on various factors specific to enrollment that year.
If you would like to check the status of your registration, please email our office manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org beginning July 1, 2017.
HOW TO PAY
It is most helpful to provide a credit card number when signing up for classes. Occasionally checks are written out for an incorrect amount and thus cannot be processed. This slows down the registration process considerably. Therefore, if possible, please provide a VISA or MASTERCARD. If you need to pay with a check please make it out to Greenwich Dance Studio or GDS.
Frequently, students are placed on waitlists because there is no room in the class of their choice. There is a benefit to being placed on a waitlist. In the chance that someone drops out of the class before it begins, or even while it is in session, we will call the next person on the waitlist to see if they would like to take the spot, provided it is within a reasonable start time in the year.
NOTE: Anticipated Spring performance date is Saturday, May 19, 2018. Please mark your calendars to avoid conflicts.
