We will also try our best to get notices to you via email & Facebook about studio closings.
Placement: Students will be placed with respect to their age, potential, and proficiency by the director and teacher. Please respect their opinions. Regular attendance is essential for your child's progress in dance. If your child must miss class, please call and let us know.
Dancewear: All students must wear appropriate dancewear and shoes for the classes you are taking. Shoes and dancewear must be on students by the second class. For ALL CLASSES: no jewelry and hair needs to be pulled back. BALLET: hair pulled back, leotard & tights, dance skirt, leg warmers (NO shorts). HIP HOP: shoes, shorts (NO jeans or street clothes). COMBO: leotard, tights, black patent tap shoes & pink leather ballet shoes. Any questions, see your instructor for details.
Please do not leave your child unattended when they are not in class. We do not have anyone outside the classroom to care for unattended children. Also, please accompany children in and out of the studio for their safety, due to the heavy traffic and town creek, which is immediately behind the studio. Please use the side door to enter and leave.
All students are required to arrive in time for their class, and while on the premises of the studio, conduct themselves in an orderly fashion. No one is allowed in the dance rooms unless a teacher is present.
Please put student's name in all shoes and clothing that is used at the studio. All students need a dance bag to hold their dance shoes and belongings. Please check bags on a regular basis to make sure all of your child's shoes are accounted for before leaving.
