Class Policies


Students learn a variety of skills from basic through advanced levels of baton twirling, dance and pom pon. Tumbling classes focus on flexibility, balance, bodywork, and basic tumbling. Each class includes proper technique and drill segments. Time in class is also spent on preparing for many performance opportunities that arise throughout the year. In the spring, a recital is held for families and friends to attend. Teamwork, self-discipline, poise, coordination, and leadership are important skills that students will gain from participating at Stepper-ette Studios. These important qualities will carry over into additional aspects of each student’s life, and, it is hoped, will make a positive difference!


Tuition is a flat monthly rate from September through May. If a student misses a class, they can make up the lesson in a similar class. Extra practices and performances also help make up for missed classes. Tuition will be posted to your online account on the first day of each month and will be charged on the 5th of the month. Tuition is set up to be auto-pay.  If you would like to be removed from the auto-pay system, please email us at stepperettes@hotmail.com.  If you need to withdraw from a class, it must be done, via email, before the 20th of the month in order for tuition to be stopped.  


A good balanced baton is important. They are available in our store.  Practice caps are also available for $3.00 per pair. The practice caps help keep baton ends clean for performances. Students may use studio batons for the first few lessons. Students may then wish to purchase their own baton. Batons are measured to last 2-3 years. Studio pom pons may also be used throughout the year. For tumbling, students need to wear socks.


All Stepper-ettes purchase a team costume that is worn at all parades, performances, and the recital. To participate in performances, each student must have a uniform. Costume cost is approximately $68.00.  For those in Pre-Competition Team, there are two costumes.  For National Team and Competition Team, three or four costumes may need to be purchased.  


“Workout clothes” are appropriate for class. This would include shorts or sweat pants, a leotard or short sleeve t-shirt, and soft soled shoes. Hair needs to be pulled away from the face. For tumbling, it is best to wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off.  For Ballet classes, black leotards, pink tights and pink ballet shoes required.  Ballet "skirts" or "Tutus" are also acceptable. Pre-Competition, Competition Team and National Team black tank top and black bottoms are required.


Bad weather information Please call the studio at 402-592-4545 or check our website at www.stepperettestudios.com if there is a question about lessons due to weather. Classes may still be held even if schools are closed if conditions have improved.
