Addressing Issues:

Unfortunately we do make mistakes. We welcome you as parents to bring those to our attention. We do ask that you use discretion as you address them with us. We ask that any conversations that are sensitive and private in matter be held while classes are not in session and are addressed to the director. If issues concern other parents or children, please do not address this issue at the studio. Please resolve the issue independently or make an appointment with the director to resolve the situation. Angry dialog, foul language and physical threats will not be tolerated. Parents and/or students who display this type of behavior may be asked to no longer participate in the classes at the Loveland Dance Academy and The Conservatory Dance Studio. Please remember that these rules are for the safety and comfort of ALL dancers.
