Dress code is established so that instructors can have full visibility of the body so that they can insure proper form and safety of our students. Dress code varies between classes. Hair is to be pulled back in a ponytail or bun. If the student has short hair, their hair must be pulled away from their face.

If a student misses class, it affects them and their fellow classmates. That is why it is expected for them to be in class every week. If a student is unable to attend class, they must text the studio number to notify the instructor. There will be no refunds for missed classes. After their absence, a student may talk with their instructor about a make-up class, to see if there is a class they may be able to attend.
Our students are expected and encouraged to treat their instructor(s) and classmates with grace and respect. If a student's behavior has gotten out of hand and/or is hindering their classmates from learning, our instructors hold the right to excuse the student from the class for a period of time, that day, or to send them home. There will be no refund given for the class from which the student was excused.
Coming and Going:
Students should arrive at the studio a few minutes early so that they are dressed, with shoes on, when class starts. Children should not be left unattended in the lobby. For the safety of our students, guardians must come inside to pick their child at the end of class. If students, who drive, have classes that end after dark, they must walk out with a member of our staff.
During class, cell phones must be on silent mode and tucked away in the student's dance bag. If there is an emergency, you may call the studio.
Our lobby is a place where families are able and encouraged to come watch their dancers and should be free of things that may distract our students. Siblings are welcome and must be accompanied by a guardian at all times. Restrooms are located inside of the dance room, so we ask that they only be used in between classes, unless there is an emergency.
