3. Attendance

Please make every effort to have your child attend all classes, we encourage you to arrive 5 minutes before class time. Arriving late is disruptive to the class and it is unfair to the other students. Any child not in class must be supervised by an adult in the waiting areas. For dance discipline, students who are not dressed properly for class (i.e, t-shirt, socks and shorts for Ballet without shoes) will be asked to sit and watch. Missed Classes: There will be no refunds for missed classes.

4. Class Attire       

It is required that all students where black leotard, black shorts and flesh tone or tan tights are MANDATORY. Bare feet are required for all other classes, except hip-hop.

5. Parent Observation

It is important to remember that parent viewing can be distracting to the student. We want the maximum learning experience for your child. Therefore, please limit any observation. We appreciate your cooperation.
