TARDINESS

We encourage consistent attendance as this promotes a strong work ethic and will give each dancer the best results in regards to training.
Dancers arriving more than 10 minutes late to any class may be not be permitted to participate that particular class at the discretion of the teacher, no matter the reason. If a student is too late it will not be possible for them to be properly warmed up to safely join the other dancers. For ballet classes, students will be asked to wait before entering the class BETWEEN exercises. We understand that “things” may happen, but we will stick strongly to this rule, as tardiness tends to disrupt the class.

Photo/Video

We may video or photograph your child during class or performances.  These may be used for advertising or promotional purposes in print and/or on the website.  To opt out of this, please let the front desk know. PLEASE DO NOT VIDEOTAPE classes without the teacher’s permission.

With that being said, please try to hold questions or suggestions until you return home from the studio. We are available via e-mail.
