REGISTRATION INFO:

We are so excited to kick off year 20 of our Twinkle Program! Want to register you dancer?

Registration for the Twinkle classes for the 2024/2025 season will open on Saturday, April 6th at 10:00 AM for all new dancers. We will have priority registration for our returning dancers starting on Wednesday, March 27th at 10:00 AM and ending Friday, March 29th at 2:00 PM to give us time to figure out how many additional dancers we can take during the open registration period. Any returning dancer who would like to be guaranteed a spot for the new season must register during this priority registration period as space will be extremely limited once it is opened to new dancers. Our classes fill very fast so please register ASAP once you are able to do so. Again, this season there will be a non-refundable registration fee of $35 that will go directly to Seton Athletics. Your dancers’ registration will not be complete if this fee is not paid during the online registration process.

PROGRAM DETAILS:

The Twinkle teams are comprised of the youngest dancers in the Seton Dance program: 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders from both private and public schools in the area.  Starting with 1 team in 2005, we anticipate having 4 teams for the 2024/2025 season. The main goal of the Twinkle program is to introduce young girls to the world of dance team and acquaint them with the Seton Dance program. For all of the Twinkle teams, we focus on basic ballet and jazz technique, along with the core style of pom. We, of course, want the girls to grow into beautiful dancers, but we pride ourselves on having each girl leave class with a smile on her face! Along with a full-length pom or jazz routine that each team performs several times a year, we teach what we like to call “fun dances” and some of today’s most popular line dances including Peanut Butter Jelly Time, Ice Cream and Cake, Cha Cha Slide, etc. As a members of one of our Twinkle teams, girls are introduced to dance, learn tremendous amounts of new material, and are welcomed into the Seton Dance family!

  • We anticipate having 4 different class times/teams for the 2024/2025 season:
    • Shine Team: Monday’s @ 5:00-6:00 pm (1st  & 2nd graders)
    • Glimmer Team: Monday’s @ 6:15-7:45 pm (3rd graders)
           NOTE: All practices for the Glimmer Team will be at Pilgrim Preschool this season.
    • Sparkle Team: Tuesday’s @ 5:00-6:00 pm (1st & 2nd graders)
    • Glitter Team: Wednesday’s @ 5:00-6:00 pm (1st & 2nd graders)
      NOTE: We anticipate classes to be split up per the above but will adjust as necessary based on actual registrations by grade. We do want to have an all 1st grade class again this season but are not yet sure which night that will be on.
  • Classes start in August and end in January/February. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s class preferences indicated at registration.
  • The cost for the entire season is $300 (1st & 2nd graders) and $350 (3rd graders). This fee can be paid in full at the beginning of the season or split into two $150/$175 payments due in August, when classes begin, and then again in October. This cost includes your dancers instruction, performance costume & accessories, 1 pair of tights, pom usage, music, competition entry fees, Christmas/End of Season parties and a Twinkle t-shirt.
  • Each dancer is required to have a pair of tan/nude slip on jazz shoes for all practices, competitions & performances. This cost is not included in the yearly fees and it is each parent’s responsibility to obtain them for your dancer. We will offer a 1 time group order and the cost is approx. $40/pair. You may choose to obtain shoes on your own if you like.
  • Each class will perform 4 times throughout the season:
    • Twinkle Preview (November)
    • Winter Showcase of Dance (December)
    • 2 Local Events/Competitions (dates & locations vary per team)
