DANCE INFORMATION

DANCE ATTIRE:
We would like our dancers to wear leotards, jazz pants, booty shorts, sports bras, etc. Tight fitting clothing is preferred as it makes it easier for teachers to correct the dancers lines and technique.  Also, we would like our dancers to wear dance shoes at all times while taking class (this is a safety precaution).


HINT :       

Buy a duffel bag, garment bag, or a container that is for your DANCE PERFORMANCES ONLY and another one for PRACTICES.  Keep all supplies in appropriate bags.  ALWAYS put items right in it when you are done using them. LABEL all pieces of your costumes. This eliminates the last minute rush of lost shoes, socks, hair tie, etc.  LABEL THE INSIDE OF SHOES. We find so many and will return if names are in them.

MESSES, THEFT AND VANDALISM:
It is our hope that our dancers and their siblings will treat the studio with respect.  Thanks for SUPERVISING siblings who are watching classes.

DANCER SUPERVISION:
Please remember that dancers ARE NOT supervised outside of class time.  If you have a younger dancer please wait inside the building with them until their class time. 

Please be on time to pick up your dancer after class.  If you are in the last class of the evening, this is even more important. Instructors want to go home to their families at the end of the night or have other commitments. Thanks for being on time.

ATTENDANCE GOAL:
Please make an effort to attend as many practices as possible.  We have had a few problems in the past with dancers missing practice but still attending the performances.  Naturally, they do not know the routine as well and it also throws the numbers off. It is also important to attend performances faithfully.  You owe it to your class.  In dance team, we depend on each other.  Of course, we all have other events in our lives and we are very understanding if you miss for a valid reason.  It is also very important that you arrive on time for performances, as we just have a short time to re-number our routines.  If you know that you will be absent or late to a performance, please let us know ahead of time.
