Studio Policies

Policies are in place to keep our studio organized, our parents informed, and our dancers happy.  Each student will receive a Handbook, either electronically or in print before classes begin.  Please take a moment to read through it so you are familiar with our policies, point of view, and way of doing things. Below are general studio policies.


  • Regular attendance and home practice is key to successfully learning a new skill, whether it be a musical instrument or dance. Please ensure your child attends lessons regularly and stays for the full class time.

  • All fees must be paid on time to continue lessons. For convenience, monthly tuition is paid with an Auto Pay system.Please see Tuition and Fees and your registration form for details.

  • No food or drink (other than water) is allowed in the teaching rooms. Forgotten water bottles will be thrown away nightly.

  • No gum chewing in the studio.

  • Students may not use cell phones during class times at all. It is disruptive to the teacher and other students. If you need to reach your child during class, call the studio number and we will give them a message. Adults waiting should take their conversations outside to keep the noise level down in the waiting room, and for privacy.

  • No friends, parents or siblings allowed in teaching rooms other than designated days such as Bring-a-Friend week or observance days. Parents are allowed to observe private music lessons in the room. Otherwise, all classes are observed through closed circuit TV's in the waiting rooms or through the viewing windows.

  • Students should arrive no more than 15 minutes before class, and must be picked up promptly after classes. Siblings may not be left without adult supervision in waiting rooms. Office staff may or may not be available but are not there to babysit. The Studio cannot be responsible for unattended children.

  • Parents are allowed to wait during class time in the waiting room, although space is limited. Siblings also waiting must be kept quiet, orderly, and supervised by an adult.  Please do not allow them to move or climb on furniture.

  • Parents should check their family folders weekly and read all notices. Communication is critical and this is your main way to stay informed. Most notices are available on our website as well.
