Welcome to Cripple Creek!

Below is a copy of our October newsletter.  For a list of our studio policies, click on the policies link on the menu above.

Getting Settled In!!!
We hope everyone has gotten started back into dance easily over the last month. We will continue to let you know what’s going on around the studio by way of our newsletter, on our website, and our voicemail. If you have questions about weather concerns or class cancelations, be sure to check online or call the studio. See some of the rules below to help you understand how we do things here at Cripple Creek.

Rules for Class!

  • Please be present for every class.
  • Please be on time for class.
  • Use the bathroom BEFORE class time.
  • No gum or candy in class.
  • Cloggers and hip-hoppers please wear pants short enough for your feet to show and so they won’t be in the way!
  • Try not to wear jeans!
  • Do not wear your dance shoes outside. They collect dirt or other unpleasant stuff and can damage them.
  • Check out the website for a full list of our policies!
  • Have fun!


  • November 7 – Clogging Concert (see Article)

Clogging Concert!!!
Like last year, Cripple Creek will be putting on a one night only performance at Thalian Hall in downtown Wilmington.  The show entitled Looking Back & Moving Forward, is a celebration of both traditional clogging as well as more contemporary footwork being put on by our clogging team.  We hope you’ll come check out the performance.  For tickets call 910.632.2285 or purchase online at

The Office
In the office right off the main lobby we are selling Cripple Creek t-shirts, recital shirts as well as dance shoes and some other fun things that Mitzi has on display. Check it out because these are great gift ideas for your dancer. And if you still haven’t picked up your pictures from recital or if you would like a DVD of it ask Mitzi or one of the teachers!

If you still have not paid costume deposits your child may be asked to sit out of class. Make sure your fees are up to date and check our studio policies if you have questions. $5 charge on late fees!

Rules for Parents!

  • Please be on time for class and picking your children up.
  • Once you are sure your child is settled in class you don’t have to hang around. The studio can get crowded at times and feel free to use this time for grocery shopping or grabbing some coffee. Although, if your child is under the age of 5, please be available in case the teacher needs you.
  • Be sure your child is properly dressed.
  • Look for your monthly envelope and a newsletter. PLEASE READ THE NEWSLETTER!
  • When you pay your fees, if you pay by check please be sure to write your child’s name on the check! Especially if your last name is not the same as your child’s.
  • Let us know if you are interested in dance. We’re constantly trying to provide more for our dancers and their families. Let us know what you’d like to see in the future. Ballroom? Pilates? Shagging? Adult Clogging? Adult Hip-hop? Let us know! We want your feedback!

If you have any questions or comments, give us a call at (910) 259-5192 or email us at
