Studio Etiquette

Each student should arrive ten minutes before their class begins in order to prepare for their lesson.  Classes will meet once a week for 45 minutes or one hour, depending on class need. Punctuality is important! Tardiness is extremely distracting and interrupts the group process. There will be a fifteen minute break between classes to escort students to and from the dance studio.

Please make sure that each child and adult has used the restroom facilities before class. No gum, food or drinks are allowed in the dance studio.

It is important that all students attend class each and every week to meet individual and group goals. If a student is injured or recovering from surgery they are encouraged to attend as the learning process continues to flourish on so many levels through observation alone. If a student is ill and will not be able to participate in class, please notify the studio as early as possible at 656-1321.

It is MANDATORY that all parents and staff stay in the studio or waiting room for the duration of the session.

Since we understand that it is often hard for siblings of our dancers to wait patiently for their brother or sister to finish their class, the studio has a bookshelf filled with children’s books and a television equipped with satellite service located in our waiting room. If the television is not turned on, please feel free to do so and tune it to age-appropriate programming. Children not enrolled in the program may NOT play in any open studios or play with studio equipment in the hallways (rolling stools, therapy balls, etc.) as this is a distraction to classes already in session, particularly for students with sensory needs.
