Rules and Regulations

GENERAL INFORMATION
1. You, the parents and students, may be assured that your classes are instructed and disciplined in a manner keenly associated with proper and correct dance education.  Classes are taught by a lead teacher along with assistant teachers and student helpers.
2. It is my desire to provide you with excellent results.  This can only be accomplished by you and your child’s patience and cooperation. I will be happy to discuss progress with you at any time.
3.  A positive and supportive attitude is expected from all students and their parents.  I reserve the right to dismiss any students or parents who upset the harmony of the school after the third time of discipline, especially when other students want to change class or even quit due to that child or parent.  If a student misbehaves or is disruptive the first time is a warning, second time they sit and watch their class the third time they are asked to go into the waiting room.
4.  I am not responsible for any injuries sustained while in class or on the premises that are not supervised.  I am also not responsible for lost articles.
5.  For the benefit of the students, parents or friends will not be allowed to watch the class being conducted weekly, as it tends to disturb the students.  When one is learning how to dance, he/she does not perform to the best ability when someone else is present.  However, I will schedule a time when parents will be allowed to watch their child’s class.  The 3 year olds will have the door open the first few lessons until the children feel comfortable being in the studio.
6. The measure of success attained during the first few months is a major factor in shaping the proper attitude toward dance and influencing future dance achievement.  I ask that the parents encourage the students by showing interest and enthusiasm and see that they practice as much as they can fit into their schedule.
7. If your child has a physical or emotional problem, please bring it to my attention before the first lesson.  This way we will be prepared to give your child the extra understanding and assistance they may need.
