Frequently Asked Questions

Pre-enrollment Questions

How are class placements for advanced ballet, jazz & lyrical classes made?
The instructors of the advanced classes evaluate the progress and skill level of dancers and make the class placements they feel are appropriate for each student. If you are new to the studio call Terri and she can arrange a time to meet with an instructor to decide which class will best meet the student’s needs.
Who do I contact about enrollment or other studio concerns?
What types of performance opportunities are available?
A mid-year performance is held in December. A spring recital is held in May or June. Some intermediate and advanced ballet, jazz, contemporary and ballroom classes may have occasional opportunities to perform at other venues also, such as the Festival of Trees. Competition clogging teams participate in four competitions each year and also have other occasional performances.
Do I have to volunteer to participate in classes at Starz Unlimited?
No. Since Starz Unlimited is a co-operative, families can contribute their time or materials toward the group. It is up to each family how they contribute, through volunteer hours, contributing services OR by paying an opt-out fee of $40.00.

The instructors of the advanced classes evaluate the progress and skill level of dancers and make the class placements they feel are appropriate for each student. If you are new to the studio contact the Organizational Director and she can arrange a time to meet with an instructor to decide which class will best meet the student’s needs.

Does my child have to participate in the recital?

Performing in front of a group increases a child’s self-esteem and confidence and provides recognition of their accomplishments. All students are encouraged to participate in the recital. Students who are unable to participate in the recital must let the Organizational Director know by Nov. 1st (this is when the recital fee is due), to allow for costume and choreography preparation. If your child begins classes after that date you must notify the Organizational Director at the time of registration. If your child does not participate in the recital and a costume has already been purchased, then the full costume fee is still due. Recital and costume fees will be assessed for those who do not notify the Organizational Director by the deadlin

Can we have your teams or advanced classes perform at our event?

We love out-of-studio performance opportunities if they fit our studio schedule. Contact the Organizational Director about setting up a performance.

About the Starz Unlimited Dance Studio

How is Starz Unlimited different from other studios?

We cater primarily to homeschoolers and therefore have many classes during the day.  Although our teachers are highly qualified and compensated, the rest of the staff (directors, board, costumes, website, etc.) are strictly volunteer positions. We also employ high standards for modesty in costumes, music & choreography.

Where is the studio located?

3390 W. 1987 S. Ste. A
Salt Lake City, UT

From Hwy. 201 take the 3200 West exit. On 3200 W. go north through the light at the frontage road. Turn left (west) at the next road (1987 S.). Starz Unlimited is located in the brown building just past the Pepsi building. The entrance and parking is in the back of the building.

Ballet, clogging and creative movement classes are open to ages 3 & older.  Jazz, ballroom, tumbling, hip hop, modern & lyrical classes are available for older ages. Adult classes in clogging and ballroom are offered and other styles of dance are available based upon demand.

How long has Starz Unlimited been in operation?
Can we attend classes at Starz Unlimited if we do not homeschool our children?
Yes. Afternoon and evening classes are open to anyone. Non-homeschooled children ages 3-5 who are not yet in school may attend any daytime class also.

Clogging Teams

Where can I find information on the clogging competitions?

Starz Unlimited attends competitions hosted by America Onstage. Click here to go to the America Onstage website for competition information.

How are clogging team members selected?

A clogging camp is held during the summer, where the Clogging Director teaches short routines to the students. Observations are made throughout the week by the Clogging Director to determine the level of each dancer.  Students are evaluated on how well they were able to learn the routines and how accurately the steps are performed. The Clogging Director places students who meet basic criteria onto teams based upon skill level and age.

What ages can be on a clogging team?
Ages 8 thru adult may participate on clogging teams. Extra work and commitment are expected when participating on competition teams and students must have the maturity to understand the commitment required.
