  • Be respectful and kind to instructors, peers and staff.
  • Do not talk during class unless you are asking a question.

  • Be willing to try new dance material. Put positive energy into your dance class.
  • No leaning, lounging or hanging on the ballet barres. NO SITTING IN CLASS!
  • Clap at the end of class to thank the instructor.
  • If late, ask permission to join class.
  • If injured, tell instructor prior to class…work slowly & carefully or observe.
  • If ill, do not come to class.
  • If you must leave early, notify instructor prior to class.
  • When leaving the studio, students must remove dance shoes and cover-up their dance clothes or change prior to leaving. Do not go outside during cooler weather without a warm-up.
