EXPECTATIONS + POLICIES

No jewelry allowed in class.

Please refrain from applying lotion or oils prior to class.

Dancers should bring a water bottle to stay hydrated during class. We do not provide cups for water.

Food and drinks, except water, are restricted to the lobby only.

Dancers are expected to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of class. Good attendance is critical to consistent progress and advancement. Students who are consistently late or absent may be asked to withdraw from the class without refund. Students may not enter class late or leave early without the teacher’s consent.

Dancers are expected to treat their peers, staff, and the facility with the utmost respect. Parents will be consulted if a student is exhibiting poor behavior.

Dancers are approved to miss two classes per session. If a student becomes ill or injured and cannot attend class, they should notify the office of their absence. Students should schedule make-up classes within the same session of their missed classes.

Dancer's cell phones are required to be turned off at all times while the student is in the studio.

Dancers are responsible for keeping track of their belongings.

Students should ask teachers or staff to adjust blinds and should not touch mirrors or swing/hang on ballet barres.
