Studio C Policies
If a student chooses to discontinue dance classes during the fall/spring term, a parent or guardian must visit the dance studio to complete and sign a withdrawal form. Withdrawal forms may not be completed verbally with teachers or over the phone. A 30-day advance notice is required in order to stop auto pay. There are no refunds given for classes or fees for students that discontinue taking lessons at any time during the term.
First steps and combo classes: GIRLS: Dancers will need a black leotard (any style) and a pair of pink-footed tights. This is the required uniform to be worn during the first lesson of each month. In other lessons, dancers may choose to wear a different color leotard and tights. Skirts or tutus are acceptable any day. BOYS: black pants or shorts and a white T-shirt are acceptable. First Steps & Combo class dancers will need a pair of black tap shoes and a pair of pink (black for boys) ballet shoes. Toddler dancers need ballet shoes only. Ballet 1 students will wear a black leotard, any style, and pink tights each week. Split-sole ballet slippers are required, along with hair in a bun and no jewelry. Students in Lyrical and Jazz classes may wear any color leotard with tights or fitted leggings with a fitted top. Shoes should be brought to and from class in a dance bag. Take a minute to mark the name inside of her shoes and outside of her bag. Children’s tap shoes should have the ties replaced with elastic buttons that you may purchase for $5/pair. Shoes should always be worn with tights or socks. No bare feet. Hip hop, Little Bops, and Boys Crew students may wear athletic clothing and tennis shoes. Jeans are not acceptable.
Care of Students
The school is not responsible for providing before or after-class care for students. Parents with students under the age of 5 may be asked to remain in the school lobby during class time. Students are not to be left at the school for excessive time before or after class.
“Watch Days” will be the first lesson of the month in November and April. This is the lesson parents and visitors are welcome to view in class. Remember, this is your day to see your child’s progress. Please do not disturb the class by visiting amongst yourselves. Turn the ringer on the phone down. Please keep the little ones seated and quiet. In other lessons, parents are asked to walk their child inside the building and then wait in the waiting room, run a quick errand, or treat themselves to a walk around the block! This enables the dance instructors to keep the attention of the students, as well as helps those who may be a little reluctant to feel more at ease. For these lessons, we will need one parent to volunteer to stay in the Studio and act as a monitor. Duties may include; escorting younger children to the restroom, helping with the changing of shoes, etc. Look for a sign-up sheet if you would like to help. When class is dismissed, please come inside to retrieve your child. Try to make eye contact with an instructor, monitor, or studio staff so we know who actually picked up your child. Please remind your child to always wait until you have come inside to get him or her.
