STUDIO POLICIES


In and Outside of Class

Proper RESPECT for the studio director, staff, studio, curriculum, fellow students and facility is EXPECTED of all students, parents, and siblings on or off-site. When attending classes, participating in a studio event, performances, out-of-town excursion, or when wearing the studio logo, general behavior is as important as your ability to dance. Keep all competition related questions until Monday or leave a message with a phone number at the desk. Please DO NOT disturb classes, the students are trying to learn and have fun! Parents or students needing to speak to me or the staff should leave a message or call the studio rather than hold instructors up between classes.


Dance Season

The dance season will run form September to June. As part of the complete dance experience, students are required to participate in both shows at our annual recitals in June. The location, dates and times are TBA. All students participating in the annual recitals must purchase the appropriate costume, specific shoes or tights as required, and tickets to view the performances. *Note: no student will perform in the recitals unless their balances are paid in full.


Competition Team

Competitive level classes are offered to the more serious dancer. Students enter this program through invitation, audition or upon teacher recommendation and they are chosen by skill level, motivation and dedication. Being on the competition team is the equivalent to being on a select “sports” team, a significant commitment to dance and a great deal of extra time and effort is involved on the part of the student as well as the parent. If you are interested and able to fulfill all the required obligations, both parent and student must arrange a meeting with Miss Erin.

Arrive On Time/Be Prepared

Students should arrive ready to dance, dressed according to the dress code, hair up and shoes in a small bag. Small children should be taken to the bathroom prior to class. Our staff does not guarantee supervision of a child dropped off too early or picked up late from class. Good Attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class. The best way for a child to develop is to attend class on a regular basis. Students with a perfect attendance will be awarded a trophy at recital!

Snow cancellations are announced on our Facebook Page, on our website and our studio answering machine. The studio answering machine is updated between noon and 2:00pm.
