Make-ups for snowdays and single holidays are strictly voluntary and an appointment may be made with the studio to attend a similar class. Make-ups due to illness or other reasons may be completed in the same manner.

Parents may observe class at their convenience as long as their presence does not affect their Child's performance. NO YOUNG CHILDREN WILL BE ALLOWED TO OBSERVE.

In the event a student misses three or more consecutive classes, the teacher may schedule a private lesson and a private lesson fee will be charged. If a student knows a class will be missed it is highly and strongly suggested that a blank VHS tape be dropped off for EACH class missed. The tape should be properly labeled with the student's name, the date of the class to be recorded, and the name of the class and teacher. Class attendance is extremely important. Techniques are refined and new steps are taught each week. If a student is absent frequently, his/her placement in the dance can be affected.

The parking lots and driveways adjacent to our building do not belong to the school. Please do not use them. There is plenty of parking on Broad Street as well as on 5th and 6th Streets. A loading zone exists in the front of the building for you convenience. Please do not park in the loading zone. This is for drop off and pick up only! While waiting for your children, please be patient and cooperative. Every effort will be made to end classes on schedule.

We have a very experienced and dedicated staff and we appreciate your trust and confidence concerning the correct placement of your child's dance level for his/her emotional and physical well being. Each level is defined by a certain set of skills. Promotion to the next level is based on achievement of these skills and an understanding of technical concepts. Promotion must be left to the discretion of the instructor. There is no guarantee that a student will move up a level each year. If a child has been absent frequently during the year, it might affect class placement the following year. We offer video analysis and parent teacher conferences. Teachers will contact the parent(s) if a student is not keeping up with the program. Parent(s) are encouraged to inquire as well.

Students must be a senior in high school to perform a solo at the recital. A student must be with our studio for five consecutive years. If a student comes from another studio, it will be at the discretion of the staff as to the student's ability to perform a solo. A teacher on staff must be hired to assist and or choreograph the solo.
