It's time to register for summer classes and next dance season!

The information packets have arrived. The schedule has been set and we are now taking registrations for summer classes and the 2015-2016 dance season.

We have early registration pricing of only $5 for registering before March 31st.  From April 1 thru May 31  the registration price will be $10 per student.  The price goes up to $20 for the first student and $10 June 1. 

We are also getting geared up for performances. On April 16 all the dancers will be performing at the Lewiston Civic Theater Parkinson's Fund Raiser.  Bring your friends and family. Admission is free but don't forget to donate to a worthy cause while you're there.

On April 26 dancers will be performing at Art Under the Elms on the campus of Lewis Clark State College. Come and watch our dancers and enjoy the activities at the college.

We will be taking group and individual pictures of the dancers during the week of May 11 - 14.

May 16 will be our own recital at the Clearwater Event Center located at the Clearwater Casino. There will be five mini-recitals in which the younger dancers will perform and a larger recital for the older dancers. Included in your packets that your dancers received in class is a schedule for all of the recitals and the performances at LCSC and the Civic Theater.

We have moved!

Footnotes Dance & Fitness has moved! After 4 years at our locations on Thain, by Rosauers, Footnotes has moved to a larger location on Warner avenue. Stop by and look around our new location, 731 Warner Ave. We are currently having summer classes so you can usually catch someone there between 5-7pm, Monday-Thursday.

We will be offering a limited 3 week July session of dance classes. You can register for those classes online or call Shawna at 208-305-6088. If you don't hear back send me a text or email

We are almost ready to start our 3 annual Five Chicks Fit Camp (Formally Three Chicks-yep, we added two awesome Chicks, Amie Warner and Cassie Nesset). Please sign up ASAP if you're interested. Camp will run 3 weeks, July 7-24. Classes are in the evening and the cost is $60 or $80 depending on if you're parent or have an unlimited pass already. I promise it will be super fun, as always!

Spring is here!

Footnotes has so much exciting activity happening over the next few weeks. We are excited to announce the beginning of our summer and fall registration! The schedules are finished and you can register online or stop by the studio. The registration fee is only $10 until the beginning of June so hurry and save your spot now! We're excited that we have over 100 dancers already registered for fall/winter classes but that also means that some classes have already closed so please don't wait.

Thank you for attending Dance Camp!

The Footnotes Dance Team Dance Camp was a huge success! Thank you to all who attended. This was a great experience for the campers and for our dance team. This year the Footnotes Dance Team took over and really did a great job leading the dancers in the fun routine they performed at LCSC.

We had so much fun and the 17 five and 6 year olds did so well making it through the whole four hours and then stealing the show that night at the basketball game. Our other groups of 7 & 8 year olds and 9 and older were awesome as well.

A special thanks to New Bridges Church for letting us use their facility and to all the Dance Team for helping out!
