Private Lesson & Special Routine Information:
If you are interested in Private Lessons or want to work on a new choreographed routine (i.e. Contemporary Solo, Traditional Solo, Choreographed Solo), please contact Marci Rickard and we will work with you to get it planned. We will check the studio calendar to see what days and times are open and confirm the instructor and studio availability. We’ll then get back to you via email with the details so that we can get started.

Referral Fee/Discount:
If you refer a dancer to a new class and they join and pay their registration fee and first month’s tuition, you will receive a $25 referral fee/credit for that dancer. Word of mouth is one of the best ways to get new dancers interested in clogging. If you would like to introduce a friend or family member to clogging we encourage you to do so and will give you a referral fee/credit. We have business cards available if you would like to help pass them out.

Starter Packs:
Are you new to clogging and in need of all the cool essentials to get started?  We’ve got two great Starter Packs worth considering!  For more information visit our Starter Packs page.

Rates for Music Mixes:
Do you need a song edited or mixed for your competition duo, choreographed solo? Are you participating in a school talent show and need a special mix for your routine? We can help you put a unique song together for your routine. First, select the music or pieces of music that you would like to dance to. Next, determine what sections of each song that you like. Schedule a time with the PowerTaps staff to work on your music mix. The base rate (minimum 1 hour) for each music mix is $35. For each additional 15 minutes (over the first hour) the cost is $5. Additional costs may apply if the studio needs to purchase music for your mix.
