CLASSROOM POLICIES & RULES
1. Listen and follow directions the first time 2. Always do your best
3. Be on time and prepared
4. Respect your teachers, respect yourself, respect your classmates and respect your studio
5. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all
If a dancer does not listen to teacher or adhere to rules:
Action 1 - verbal warning
Action 2 - dancer asked to sit and watch until they are ready to listen and do what they are asked.
Action 3 - if they still do not adhere, the student may be asked to leave the classroom and wait at the front desk. A phone call or conversation will be had with a parent/gaudian after class to let them know there was an issue.
Classroom control is of the utmost importance. We have put our disciplinary policy into effect to ensure that your dancer's time in class is spent learning, dancing, and growing. We believe that by having consistency throughout the studio, the dancers are able to step into class prepared and ready to do their best! Please take time to speak to your dancer about how important it is to follow the classroom rules so that the entire class has a great experience. Hard work,
great attitudes, and focus make for a great dance class and a great future!
