STUDIO POLICIES

 

    • Required attire is mandatory in ALL classes – please refer to our Dress Code page for exact descriptions. 
    • To prevent distractions, parents and siblings are asked to wait in our waiting room downstairs and are not permitted to be in the classroom or hallways (Saturdays only) while classes are being conducted.
    • Student placement is determined by the staff ONLY and cannot be requested by parents and/or students.  The owners and instructors place students by ability, experience and age.  
    • All students are expected to attend all scheduled classes unless they are ill.  We recommend that students attend their class to watch if unable to participate where possible.  Failure to attend all classes will not only affect their ability to keep up but will negatively affect the learning of other students in their class.  We keep record of attendance in each class for this reason and monitor this for future placement.
    • A minimum of 4 students is required in all of our standard group classes. If we do not receive sufficient registration, class levels will be combined into one class.
    • Registration will be closed after October 28th
    • Mutual respect, between students and instructors, as well as between the students and each other, is a must. Courtesy and good manners are expected and will be enforced. At no time will bullying, rudeness or gossiping be tolerated.
    • Parents, please remind yourself that our studios are full of children, who look to us as role models, so as adults, we need to conduct ourselves in a respectful manner recognizing that youthful eyes are watching and wanting a positive and encouraging atmosphere. Please do not make disrespectful remarks about our staff, other dancers, other parents, or other studios while on our premises, at other related events or on social media. As we strive to uphold our promise to provide the very best for your child, we hope you will do the same by standing behind our program, and encouraging our children as they enjoy the art of dance.
