CANCELLATIONS

If classes are canceled due to weather: Dancers are encouraged to make up missed classes in another class of equal level. Please ask your instructor or contact the office for appropriate make up times for your dancer.

ABSCENCES

Dance is an athletic art where presence is necessary. Work done in class can rarely be "made up" so we need all dancers to attend their classes every week. In the case of illness, please contact the office to find an appropriate class your dancer can attend in it's place. Multiple unexcused absences may result in the inability of a dancer to perform. We appreciate your dedication to our craft.

"DANCER ONLY ZONE"

Sometimes the first week or two of an activity, especially if it is new, can be daunting and confusing for young children. Our staff is well aware of this and go out of their way to comfort any dancer who needs an extra few minutes to acclimate.

Our studios are “dancer only zones”, in order to create a healthy and trusting bond between dancer and instructor. We invite parents to observe classes at the end of the first semester and periodically throughout the year.

If a dancer clearly needs to be soothed by a parent we ask that we do this in the hallway outside of the dance studio. This ensures that the other dancers in the studio can continue to focus on their class as well as the teacher.

If you have any concerns or questions please come to the office or speak with an instructor come the end of class.

We greatly appreciate your understanding and support as we look forward to a wonderful dance season.

RECITAL 

Participation in our annual spring performance at SUNY Purchase is not required but is encouraged. A costume fee of $85.00 is required to participate. Recital tickets will be available for purchase one month prior to the performance on a date chosen by SUNY Purchase Performing Arts Center. Tickets for the performance are at the cost of participating families.

All dancers are also expected to attend dress rehearsals and are to be picked up AFTER the final curtain call of the show NOT during. This is to ensure the safety of all involved.
