Q - Do you guys know how to spell Dance???

Q - Does FDLD do any performances?
A - Absolutely. In our first year alone, FDLD performed in the Natchitoches Christmas Festival Parade, a Northwestern State University Men's Basketball Game Half Time, and we will also have our annual Dance Showcase at A.A. Fredericks on Northwestern's campus. All ages perform!
Q - How many times can my child miss dance class?
A - Since dance class is usually only once a week, absences need to be kept at a minimum. Only 5 absences will be tolerated and make up classes will be offered twice a year and on a Friday evening. If a child misses more than 5 days and missed make up classes, the child will not be allowed to perform in the Review. No refunds.
