Welcome to the 2016-17 dance year! 


We have a very exciting dance year ahead of us. To make this year successful for your child, 

we ask that the following rules and guidelines be applied.

Parking:In the past we have been able to use the parking North of our lot, That Is No Longer Available!! Please, when the BritZa lot is full, park on Bedford (being mindful and respectful of the neighbor's mailboxes) or in the Fairway lot!

1. Class begins and ends on time.  Please make it a priority to have your child to the studio five to ten minutes before his/her class begins. Students need to be on time so that they can be properly warmed up in order to reduce the chance of injury. The studio opens 15 minutes prior to the 1st class of the day and closes 5 minutes after the last class of the day is finished!

2. Parking.   To keep traffic flowing, please do not line up and wait for your child. Please find a parking place to wait or schedule pickup 10‐15 minutes after your child’s class is finished so they can be ready and watching for you. Do not park in front of the garage at any time. Please be considerate of our neighbors on Bedford Ave. Do not use their driveways to turn around. 

3. Parents are invited to wait quietly in the lobby area or Dancer Den during class. Students are required to remain in the studio and not allowed to talk with their parents. Siblings are also welcome in the lobby but must be supervised at all times. The studio is not equipped to handle children who are not able to sit quietly.

4. Cell Phones. Please remember to silence all cell phones.  No pictures or videos are permitted without teacher's consent. 

5. Payment of monthly fees. (Please login to your online account to see what you owe for tuition.)

  • Your monthly fee is due the first class of each month. (August tuition for all students is 50% of normal monthly tuition. The Multi-Class Discount will be adjusted August 31st.  Sept.- May tuition charges in your account will be corrected at that point.)
  • Sales tax is added to your monthly tuition.
  • Please make checks payable to BritZa Studios. 
  • Please understand that we’re on a budget and have monthly bills; therefore, everyone needs to pay their monthly fee even if your child has missed class. 
  • There will be a $10 service charge for accounts that are 30 days past due, a $20 service charge for accounts 60 days past due, and so on.
  • Online Account Access & AutoPay!  You may pay through your online account.  All registered families have an account already set up for them.  
    • Simply go to the "Home" page on this website and click "Sign Into My BritZa Account"  Your Login is your email.  Press "Forgot Password" and a temporary one will be sent to you.  
    • Please make sure all of your contact info is correct
    • Enter credit card info.  You can pay manually each month, or check the box next to "Yes, sign me up for AutoPay"  Charges will be applied to your card on the 5th of each month.  If your signed up for AutoPay last year, it will automatically start again this year.  August Tuition will be run on August 22nd. 
    • You can also view your payment history and tuition charges by clicking "View Financial History"  To see the details of each charge click the "+" sign to the left of each charge.
  • If you have payment questions, contact Miss Amanda at bitzastudios@gmail.com or 271-5053.

6. Class Postponements. If Sioux Falls Public Schools close due to weather conditions, the studio may also be closed. If it storms in the morning and clears by afternoon, we may still have class.  If there is a storm in the afternoon or evening the studio may close even if school was not canceled. This decision will be based on the road conditions in Sioux Falls. If you live outside of Sioux Falls, you will need to decide if it’s safe for you to bring your child to dance. Please check KELO Closeline or go to our website home page www.britzastudios.com.  We will also post class updates on the BritZa Facebook page. A make up schedule will be emailed to you. If school is closed due to a holiday, please refer to the schedule provided below.

7. Remove your shoes. In an effort to keep the public areas clean for dance shoes, all students must leave their street shoes at the entry. As the weather becomes inclement, parents, siblings & visitors will also be asked to remove their shoes.

8. Mark Your Calendars! 

  • Holiday Show - Sunday, December 4, 2016
  • Spring Performances - May 11-13, 2017

9. Contact Info. You may contact Miss Jill or Miss Amanda anytime during the dance year if needed. Morning is best. 

  • Miss Jill: 371‐3650 or jillkunstle@gmail.com  A phone call is the best way to reach Miss Jill
  • Miss Amanda: 271‐5053 or britzastudios@gmail.com  An email is the best way to reach Miss Amanda


Please help us enforce the above rules and guidelines. We are looking forward to a fantastic dance year!
