We are excited for the plans we have at Lifehouse this summer! We hope you will join us. Included in this letter is the schedule for weekly summer classes, company audition information for the 2023-24 season, and information about summer intensive and camps.
Class recommendations for next season
If your child is currently in an open class, you will receive a recommendation in April for class placement for the 23-24 season. Feel free to contact the studio if you wish to discuss the best options for your student. Ms. Nesha or Ms. Annie are happy to talk through options with you.
Schedule of Weekly Open and Company Summer classes
Summer classes will begin on June 19 and conclude on July 28. Classes will not be held on July 4. Makeup classes for that day will be on June 30. Summer classes are open to everyone.
Tuition is determined by the number of hours of instruction per week and is equivalent to regular tuition during the year.
There are six weeks of summer classes. Tuition for summer classes is due July 1.
You may also pay by the week if you will be gone a significant number of classes during the weeks of summer when classes are offered. A weekly tuition rate is included along with the entire summer rate. YOU MUST SEND AN EMAIL TO lifehouse.herriman@gmail.

Weekly Company Summer Schedule
Students interested in participating in a company for the 2023-24 season need to register for summer classes. Students 4th grade and older who are new to Lifehouse should contact the studio for recommended placement. We are looking forward to having six weeks of summer classes!
- The summer class schedule will be based on age for open class students and company placement from the 2022-23 year for company students.
- Summer classes will serve as the audition process for next year’s company placement. This will allow us to watch students for an extended period and better place them in the right class for their growth the following year. It will also allow us to better place new company members in the right class and help us to keep skills sharp and stay in prime condition year-round.
- You will need to register individually for each Company Class.
Pointe dancers must dance year-round
Because of the safety issues and intense physical conditioning needed for pointe work, students who are on pointe must dance year-round and take summer classes. If a student does not take summer classes, they will be pulled off pointe and must dance for a month on flat and be re-tested to be put back on pointe. Ms. Beverly, our Ballet Director, feels very strongly about this for the safety of the dancers.

Summer Intensive and Camps
Lifehouse will be offering a musical theater camp and our summer intensive in addition to the weekly summer classes. Below are links with detailed information.
Herriman Summer Intensive 2023 Required for Company students. Open to all.
Herriman Musical Theater Camp 2023 For students, 6-18-years old.
Auditions for Lifehouse 2023-24 Companies
- An audition for Dance Companies and Musical Theater Companies will be held Friday, July 21, between the hours of 9 am-2 pm. It is a good experience for students to learn the art of auditioning as it is a part of the dance world. Students will showcase what they have been working on all summer. After the audition, class placement for the next season will be determined. Always, our goal is to place dancers where they can grow and progress to their potential.
If you have any questions regarding class placement or want some feedback as to your child’s readiness for a company class structure, feel free to contact me.
