Policies

 

Parent Observation:

For Dance Discovery classes, family members are welcome to watch the first and last day of the session.  For other classes, we do not encourage parents or visitors to stay in the dance room as it may be distracting or uncomfortable for our dancers. If you have any concerns, please let us know.  Parents and visitors may always watch through the window.

 

Makeups and Attendance:

Dancers are encouraged to come to an alternate class for a makeup in the event of an absence. Please contact the office regarding an appropriate class to make up in. This is a great opportunity to try a class out to see if your dancer may be interested in joining.

 

Class Guidelines:

All dancers are expected to attend each class in proper dress code and hair pulled back. Dancers are expected to arrive to class on time and ready to warm up. No gum, cell phones, or disruptive behavior are allowed. Respect for the teachers, staff, dancers, and one's self are expected at all times.
