CHANGING CLASSES / ADDING - DROPPING
A change of class form must be completed and turned into the office. Class roster will be changed and dancer deleted from dropped class and added to new class.
A withdraw from must be completed and turned into the office. Dancer will not be removed from roster unless form is turned in and billing for registered class will continue.
STUDENT PICK UP AFTER CLASS
Dancer must be picked up promptly after class, especially those dancers who are in the last class of the day. Teachers are busy teaching and not responsible to watch your child. Please have your dancer wait inside, not outside for your arrival.
Class size varies depending on age & ability of the dancers. An 8-Student minimum is required in order to hold class. Normally this is NOT a problem, however if for any reason class size should drop below the requirements, and alternate class will be offered. Classes may be over booked at the beginning of the season and will stabilize. Students sometimes transfer to another class and sometimes drop the class due to other activities.
Attending class with minimal absences during the course of the year is vital for the individual dancer’s progress as well as that of the entire class. We realize that children are involved in many activities, and we will be happy to recommend another class that is more convenient. When dancer has excessive absences it affects the entire class.
All classes are open for observation.
The dance studio, although a fun place for dancers, can be very dangerous for siblings who are not attended to. They are not to roam the studio alone at any time. No one is permitted in any of the dance rooms unless child is a registered student and participating in class with a teacher. We do not want to see your child injured as a result of the disregarding of rules, nor the equipment (expensive stereo equipment, breakable mirrors, gym equipment, and special dance floors.
Absolutely no street shoes permitted.
Young children need to be supervised so that they do not get locked into restroom, toilets jammed with toilet paper or paper towels, and that hand soap is not squirted on the floor and walls.
Please keep the dance studio clean. Maintenance and upkeep is constant. Please dispose of any trash in trashcans provided. There is no food or drink permitted inside the studio as spills get carried into the dance rooms, which can result in either sticky or slippery floors that may cause a dancer to fall.
CONCERNS / QUESTIONS
We always try our best to ensure that all dancers and parents are satisfied with the dance instruction, rules, and policies of the school. If at any time, should you become dissatisfied with any aspect concerning the dance classes, or studio rules and policies, please bear in mind that rules and policies are set for a reason. No question is not worth asking, and any concern is welcome to be expressed. We are a family-oriented studio with our focus being teaching the art of dance in a fun and positive atmosphere.
