Missed classes may be made up at another class of equal level. Severe illness or injury can place tuition on a hold status, however you need to make us aware of this.
Classes canceled by the studio because of an act of nature, i.e., a hurricane, which is out of our control, will not be made up. If there is any threat of inclement weather, please call the studio and listen to our message since our voice mail is through Bellsouth, you should always be able to hear the current message.
Our attire is basic, simple and classical, this keeps all students/all levels looking the same. It helps limit most parents to purchase only one leotard annually. In addition, it is much easier for teachers to notice corrections that need to be made when any student is doing something different from the rest of the class.
Leotards & Tights:
PLAIN Black Leotard (no skirts, rhinestones or designs) any Style for all students in any/all classes Pink Tights with/without seams for all students in any/all classes. This keeps parents from feeling they need to keep buying different leotards.
We recommend Bloch Shoes in the following style numbers. Primarily because we wear Bloch tights which match Bloch Shoes exactly and this brand wears extremely well. If for any reason that your child does not fit into any of these shoes, then you will need to get him/her whatever fits properly. The color & style may be different but, no one belongs in a shoe that does not fit properly. If he/she is wearing something that currently fits, please do not feel compelled to replace them now. Wait until the child out grows them or replace them for the recital.

Dance Bags & Contents:
Please make sure that your child has a dance bag, preferably with their name on the outside. Make sure that all shoes are labeled with their names and that you check them periodically to see if the label has faded. If so, please re-label them accordingly.
NO jewelry should be worn during classes. (especially no hoop-type earrings or dangling necklaces or bracelets). No street shoes are allowed on the actual dance floor. Students out of uniform will be asked to leave the class.
- If a student is more than 10 minutes late for any Pre-Ballet & Tap, Combo or Acro classes they will not be allowed in.
- If a Junior and Senior Level student is more than 5 minutes late, they will not be allowed in.
All Pre Ballet & Tap, Pee Wee Acro, Combo 1, Combo 2 , Combo3, Petite Acro, Petite Hip Hop Students: It is recommended that all students participating in any of these recital routines not miss any more than four classes between August- December and January - June unless advised by a physician. If a student does not know a recital routine, parents will be responsible for makeup classes (if available) or to pay for private lessons.
All Jr & Sr Level Students: are not allowed to miss any more than 4 of each class August- December and January - June unless otherwise advised by a physician. The dancer may either be removed from the routine or the parents will be responsible to pay for private lessons.
Ages are used as guidelines. Ability, experience, effort and dedication are the main criteria for placement. The completion of a dance year/session does not always general a level change. The curriculum is structured so that advancement takes place as skills are mastered, by each student as an individual.
It is fun for students to dance with their friends, however, friends generally have different strengths and weaknesses. No student will benefit from a class that is too easy or too difficult when it is just to take it with a friend. Therefore, we ask that you trust the judgment of the staff and support our decisions of class placement.
NO FOOD OR BEVERAGES IN THE STUDIO/LOBBY.
Water ONLY within bottles with a SIPPER or TWIST top are allowed.
