Where Stars Shine
Rising Stars School of Baton, Tumbling, and Dance
Rising Stars has been providing high quality baton, tumbling and dance education to Beloit and the surrounding communities since 1998. Our studio represents a positive learning environment where dancers can experience the incredible world of dance.
We offer once a week classes for individuals ages 3 through adult from the recreational through the competitive level. Our classes aren’t just for girls! Guys love to dance too, right?! Check out our list of class offerings!
Most classes have 1 instructor and 1 assistant. Younger classes have an average class size of 6-8 while the older classes have an average class size of 8-12.
Private and semi-private lessons are available upon instructor approval. A class lesson in the same subject is required.
Although parents/guardians, friends and siblings are not allowed in the actual classes, each of our classrooms have viewing windows through which you are more than welcome to observe each and every class.
Our students are placed in their classes according to their age, ability and experience. One or all may apply when placing the dancer in an appropriate class level. It’s been said, “Each child has a gift, some of them open their gifts at different times.” We have found this to be so true and we believe that each child should be allowed to experience all aspects of the classroom setting. Some years they may be at the bottom of the class, or the top, or even the middle. No one place is any better, each creates a different experience. One year they might look up to someone in their class, another year they might be the role model everyone is looking up to. No matter where they fall in the class, that experience is teaching them valuable life lessons.
Our classes aren’t just for girls! Guys love to dance too, right?! And why shouldn’t they?! We are committed to breaking down the barriers and erasing the falsehood that boys can’t/shouldn’t twirl, tumble or dance. Everything we offer at Rising Stars requires athleticism, agility, focus, dedication, desire, flexibility, strength, balance, hand-eye coordination, fine and gross motor skills, all of the same “tools” required for football, soccer, or any other sport. In fact, several ball players over the years have been known to take dance to help them develop these skills to enhance their sport. Does your son, nephew, grandson want to dance? Check out our list of class offerings!
Our studio represents a positive learning environment where twirlers, tumblers and dancers can have fun, be creative and experience the incredible world of dance. It is our hope that your STAR will carry the disciplines of dance into their everyday lives, helping to build the self-confidence, poise and self-esteem that will benefit them throughout their entire lifetime. We assure you that your dancer will receive a high quality dance education in a fun, healthy, loving environment. You will see your STAR involved in a wholesome activity that contributes to the growth and development of both their ability and their personality. It is our goal to bring out the best in each and every one of our students and we hope to not only build a solid dance foundation, but also to provide our students with priceless and memorable life experiences and friendships.

Fall Classes Start!
25 SEPTEMBER, 2020
We’re currently working to update our website.
As with any school, your monthly tuition is a standard fee each month regardless of the number of lessons in that month or the number of lessons your child attends. You will be paying for the entire school year of 34 weeks of classes held over 9 months (September – May). This is an average of 3.78 classes per month. In addition, if your dancer is absent, whether one lesson or an entire month, you still owe for that (those) lessons unless cancelled by Rising Stars due to teacher illness, in-climate weather, etc. We do promise a minimum of 34 lessons per fall/winter/spring session. Please note that when there are extra rehearsals for parades, recital rehearsal, extra shows, etc. there is no extra charge. New students joining after the first lesson of the month will have their first month’s charges pro-rated. The calendar in each month will vary depending upon which day you have your classes. Some months you may have 2 or 3 classes, others 4 or 5. If there are 3 scheduled lessons, you still pay full tuition, just as when there are 5 lessons you are not charged any extra. Tuition remains the same regardless of the number of weeks in a given month. Everyone will have had at least 34 classes over the nine months. If for any reason you decide to discontinue your classes, you are not obligated to pay for the balance of the school year.
No credit is given for student absences nor are make-up lessons given. Non-sufficient Funds fee is $25.00.
Any student with an overdue balance of more than 45 days will not be allowed into class until payment in full is received.
Tuition is due the first lesson of each month.
If your child is absent that week please mail your payment to 822 Broad St. Suite C, Beloit WI 53511 as any payments made after the 10th of the month will be charged a $5.00 late fee and family discounts will be forfeited.
