  3. Having their hair up off the neck.  No hair in the face.


Dancers show respect for others by:
  1. Keeping their hands to themselves during class;

  2. Waiting quietly for others to have a turn and for instructions from the teacher;

  3. Waiting until the music is finished before entering the classroom if they are late to class;

  4. Talking with one another only during Share Time;

  5. Supporting other students’ efforts, never laughing, pointing or whispering.


Dancers show respect for their teacher and dance by:
  1. Being properly dressed and ready for class on time;

  2. Listening when the teacher speaks;

  3. Always standing in a “proper dance stance” while listening to the teacher give combinations or corrections;

  4. Being prepared for their turn;
