A safe and positive studio environment is best for teaching, learning and having fun

Our dancers learn respect, teamwork and leadership

Students

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.
Parents

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.

Studio Attire

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.
