Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO WE PREPARE FOR CLASS?
Make sure that young dancers use the restroom right before class!
Dancers should arrive 5 minutes early, ready to dance (already dressed). Put all belongings in a cubby, then go to the door which opens to the studio and wait for your teacher. Students will be welcomed by their teacher and invited onto the dance floor.
IS IT OKAY TO STAY AND WATCH MY CHILD?
Parents and family members of all our dancers are welcome, but not required, to stay and watch class through the viewing window of the lobby.
WHAT IF WE HAVE TO MISS A CLASS?
Please notify your instructor by text or email as early as possible if your student will not be present for their class. Their contact information is available on Dance Studio Pro.
Because our ballet teachers have only 12 weeks to prepare choreography for the Christmas show, dancers who miss four (4) classes prior to the Christmas show will not be allowed to participate in the performance.
Irish dancers begin choreography work before Christmas break and will, generally, have just ten (10-12) weeks for preparation. Thus, the policy applies to these dancers, as well (during the choreography season).
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY TEACHER MISSES A CLASS?
In the event that an instructor is unable to teach a class, a substitute teacher will teach in the instructor's place. If there are no substitute teachers available, the class will be canceled and a make-up class will be scheduled.
