Studio Policies

Dress Code

Our dress code was adopted by our staff for the purpose of improving the quality of our students' dance education. By making dancewear simple and uniform, instructors can more clearly see students' bodies and therefore make more accurate corrections regarding positions and movements.

This policy will be strictly enforced.

  • Tap & Jazz

Cover-Ups, Leotards & Hair

  • Cover-Ups
  • Leotards
  • Hair

It is requested that some type of "cover-up" be worn to and from the studio.

Please note that LEOTARDS (not "camisole tops") are required for all classes. Absolutely no T-shirts, sweatshirts, midriff tops, etc. will be allowed in class (unless special permission is given by the instructor).

Hair should be secured up and away from the face for all classes. Ponytail, French braids, buns, etc. for long hair – short hair must also be pulled back on the sides and fastened with barrettes away from the face. Loose hair inhibits the students' movement and placement.

We are committed to using age appropriate music, costumes & choreography!

Dropping A Class

If a student drops out of a class, at any time of the year, the instructor and office staff need to be informed so that parents will not be required to pay the next month's tuition and so that the parent and teacher can discuss any problems that may have prompted the drop-out.

Visitors

To avoid distractions, Parents are not allowed to attend classes except on those days set aside as "Visitor's Days." We will have "Visitor's Weeks" during the month of December. arents are then invited to come and see the progress their child has made. I would like to remind all students that friends are only allowed to visit class with prior permission by Instructor.

Missed Days

Instructors are aware that many of our students are involved in sports activities at school and there are times when dance classes must be missed. However, any student missing more than one week in a row will be expected to discuss with the instructors alternative make-up days for the missed classes

Safety

Please drive cautiously around the Studio at all times and be considerate of the other businesses when parking. Parents, please remind your children to remain inside the studio before class and until picked up. They are not allowed to stand outside or to leave the studio once they have been dropped off for classes.

Prompt Pickup

We appreciate the fact that all of you have busy schedules and understand when your "taxi service" runs a little behind, however, please make every effort to get your child to class on time and to pick up promptly from the last classes of the day as the instructors need to get home to their families when expected.

Questions?

Our staff is always happy to answer any questions you may have. Please try to reach us in the morning hours (before classes begin) or contact the office with a message for us to return your call after class hours. We try to avoid being pulled out of class if at all possible!
