Policies & Procedures

Class Etiquette

Students should arrive on time to class with proper dress and hair neatly pulled back.  If you will be late or need to leave early, please call the studio in advance. Students who arrive too late and miss the necessary warm ups may be asked to observe class, as not to risk an injury.  All levels are asked to stretch before and after class on their own.

Attendance

Attendance is vital to the development of a dancer’s training.  Roll will be taken at the beginning of each class.  Those who have regular attendance are rewarded with the greatest improvement and possibly larger roles in performances.  A decision will be made regarding participation in the winter and spring showcases if too many classes are missed.

If you must miss class please call the studio.  If a student is injured or not contagiously ill they are strongly encouraged to watch classes especially during performance preparation.  Missed classes may and should be made up in the trimester they are missed, in a similar class and/or at the discretion of the studio.
