Attendance is crucial to a student’s growth and learning. Therefore, it is important that students be on time for their classes as a courtesy to their teacher and peers. Additionally, it allows sufficient time for stretching and warming up to prevent and injuries. Students must be dressed in appropriate dance attire, such as leotards, tights, skirts, shorts, etc. and proper shoes. Please put the students’ hair up in a ponytail or bun.
Should your child be absent, please call and notify the studio. Make-up classes can be taken at any point throughout the year.
After January, students are not allowed to miss more than three classes, unless in instances of severe sickness, as that is a crucial time for preparing for our show.
In instances of inclement weather, the studio will contact you via email, as well as post updates on Instagram and Facebook should it be determined that it is in the best interest of our students and families to close.
Students may try the first class for free, as it allows us to assess their ability. The teachers will determine the best placement for the student. Students typically remain in the same level for two years to allow for continuation of learning.
We invite you to observe the last 15 minutes of each dance class during our Visitor’s Week, each of which will take place in December, February and April. We ask that you sit quietly when watching the classes, and please tag the studio should you take and post any images/video to social media.
Preparations for our June show will begin as early as November when we order costumes. All students and classes will be able to participate in the show. Ability to participate in the show for students registering after Christmas break will be contingent on whether or not a costume can still be purchased from the distributor
