-Students that miss classes/solos due to illness, vacation, injury, personal reasons, etc have forfeited that time.  There will be no make-up lessons unless the teacher cancels class.

General Info

-Absolutely no shoes are permitted in the dance rooms.

-No food or gum is permitted in the dance rooms.

-Dancers and parents will always be positive and encouraging to other dancers, teachers and anyone who enters our dance studio.

-If you have questions or concerns about anything at the studio please speak with someone at the front desk, send us an email, or leave a message for the teacher and they will get back to you after class.

-Please allow the teachers to make all decisions regarding level and class placement of the students.  Each dancer will be placed in a class that the teacher feels is the best for that dancer's age and ability.  We cannot make accommodations for reasons such as friends, carpools, etc.  Please be reminded that each dancer progresses at their own pace and some groups that start a class together may not be at the same level after a year or two.
