School Policies and Tuition
Overview of School Policies
For your child’s safety…
- Please escort students ages 7 and under in and out of the building, instead of dropping them off in the parking lot or street.
- When arriving, students should quietly prepare for class and assemble quietly outside the classrooms until invited in by their instructor.
- Students in Ballet III and up, however, may quietly enter the classrooms early for warm up.
- Please arrange for prompt pick up after class. We cannot be responsible for watching children after their class time.
- Students waiting to be picked up should sit quietly in the lobby until parents arrive.
- Children are not allowed to wait outside or leave the premises until parents retrieve them.
- Ballet shoes cannot be worn outside of the building: It reduces the life of the shoes and it can bring hazardous materials into the studio that can damage the dance floor and/or cause injuries for students and company dancers.
- All dancers must be wear a “cover-up” over their uniform when entering and leaving the premises.
