School Policies and Procedures
Any issues or concerns are best written, emailed or messaged by phone so that class time is not interrupted.
The school prides itself on keeping classes small and personal with an emphasis on good technique taught by superior instructors to develop student’s talents giving them a lifetime appreciation of dance and the associated arts and skills. Dances, music and costuming are age appropriate. The school strives to introduce students to dance as a fun experience.
Required dance attire: Wear solid black leotards, pink tights, pink ballet shoes, black tap shoes and jazz students wear black v-cut lycra straight leg jazz pants over the above outfit with black jazz shoes (names On all items). Boys wear white t-shirts and black jazz pants.
Wear hair off the face pulled back in a bun with a hair net
Wear cover-up and street shoes to and from class
Please put names in shoes and on all items.
Attend class regularly. Tardiness and high absenteeism cause students to feel awkward and interrupt the flow and productivity of classes. Warm up exercises are vital and, if late, you will be asked to observe rather than participate.
Ballet class is highly recommended for all students. Ballet provides the necessary technique to progress in other styles of dance and developing strength, flexibility, coordination, grace, and an appreciation of the Art.
No gum or food in the studio. Water bottle is OK.
Parents are encouraged not to observe classes without the permission of the instructor. Observation days will be posted. Students are easily distracted, so as soon as you and the student are acquainted with the new environment, it is advantageous to his/her development to be alone with the teacher. Older students are self-conscious and need a comfortable learning environment.
