Fall Class Reservations
Hello Factory Street Families!
Fall is coming, and so is Class Registration!  Classes will begin Tuesday September 5, and Class Registration will be open from Monday,  August 28 to Friday, September 1.  We’re finalizing the Class Schedule, and will release it on or before August 21.
To streamline the process, and make registration easier for returning students, we’ll be trying a new registration process this year.  Students who were registered for classes in the Spring, will have the opportunity to reserve space in the SAME classes for Fall.  Once reserved, your child will have a guaranteed spot in those classes, and you can register anytime during Registration Week without worry.
Here’s how it’ll work:
1)  Fill out a copy of this form for EACH student that is returning for the Fall, and select the classes for which you’d like to reserve a space.  Please note that you may ONLY reserve space in classes for which the child was registered in the Spring – you’ll add any NEW classes during Registration Week.  If you’ve been contacted by the studio about your child moving up to a new tech level (e.g. from Tech 2 Modern to Tech 3 Modern), please reserve space in the NEW level.
If you’re undecided whether your child will continue in a particular class this Fall, you may still reserve a space and make a final decision during Registration Week.
Reservations MUST be received by Thursday, August 24.
2)  Registration Week will be from 8/28 to 9/1.  During Registration Week, you’ll register or in the studio.  On your registration form you’ll select ALL of the classes your child will be taking, including any new classes they didn’t take in the Spring. FSS staff will be available for registrations on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:00 – 7:00 pm.
To keep the spaces you’ve reserved, your registration and payment (or payment arrangements) MUST be received by Friday, September 1.
We hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer, and can’t wait to see you in the studio!

Dear Factory Street Studio Community:
We hope you are having a wonderful summer! We are working hard to finalize the annual calendar and fall class schedule as we start our second week of camp and our second session of summer dance classes.
We are thrilled to announce that Maria Warmke has been promoted to Business Director as part of her annual performance review process. Maria has filled many roles at Factory Street Studio over the years – FSS dancer, parent of an FSS dancer, 6 years on the FSS Board of Directors, 3 years as an FSS manager and now as a Co-Director – and we could not be happier to have her expertise and passion. Her expanded role means that you will see her at the studio more often, and that she will be managing many of the studio’s processes and communications moving forward.
Factory Street Studio is excited to welcome a number of new volunteer board members. Welcome to: Valerie Wang, Gillian Ice, Andrew Pueschel, Tyrone Carr, Robin Stock, Andrea Diaz, and David Hayden. They join Cheryl Schroer, Danielle Ammann Young, Tresa Randall, and Nathan Andary, who will continue their volunteer service with the studio.
The Board has also elected Robin Stock as President and Tresa Randall Vice-President for a two-year term that began on July 1.
We are forever indebted to long-time board members Molly Mason Hurst, Ginger Schmalenberg, Lauren McMills, and Mark McMills, who all begin a transition to Factory’s Street Studio’s Advisory Board, which also includes Cita Strauss, Elizabeth Atwell-Brumley, and Mary Beth Brown. The Board also thanks Jona Moberg and Laura Hibbard for their years of service as they transition away from their volunteer roles with the studio.
Please feel free to reach out to Maria with questions about the studio and its programming at Additional questions or concerns can be addressed also to Molly Mason Hurst, at or Robin Stock at
Thank you for your continued support of Factory Street Studio. Whether you are a family member, dancer, instructor, alumna/alumnus, donor, volunteer, or friend, we appreciate your part in our nearly 40-year legacy. We look forward to continuing our journey with you.
Molly Mason Hurst – Immediate Past President, Factory Street Studio Board of Directors
Robin Stock – President Elect, Factory Street Studio Board of Directors
