What To Expect When You Visit
The Children’s Ballet is located in downtown Danville at 51 South Tennessee Street, close to the Danville Public Library. Ample parking is available in a lot across Tennessee street. There is limited parking behind the studio and on Tennessee street.
A safe and positive studio environment is best for teaching, learning and having fun – and is essential to our success.
- Listen politely and follow directions.
- Be courteous, polite and encouraging to your classmates. Dance requires teamwork!
- Respect your classmates and teachers in your words and actions. Thank your teachers at the end of class.
Dancers are welcome in the studio dressing room 10-15 minutes before class. Please try to be prompt when picking up your dancer from class. Parents are welcome to remain in the waiting room during class. There are some games and books in the waiting room for younger siblings. Please keep distractions to a minimum.
Students should arrive at the studio ready to dance, with hair neatly in place, wearing clean, neat, uniform ballet attire. Dressing properly for class is a lesson in itself as students learn both discipline and cooperation.
- Girls should pull long hair away from the face into a ballet bun or braids. Short hair should be secured with barrettes or a headband.
- Girls wear plain black leotards (no velvet, attached skirts, rhinestones, etc.) with plain pink tights and pink leather ballet slippers.
- Boys wear black shorts or sweat pants, a white t-shirt and black ballet shoes.
- Please place student’s name in all articles of clothing.
- No jewelry or watches.
