Attire & Attendance
With choreography in full swing, being at dance becomes imperative. Regular attendance is important to ensure that dancers can learn dances in order to perform them to the best of their ability. As well, it is very important to be ready to go for your child`s scheduled class time. Coming late causes the class to have to stop and go over anything they may have missed and this leads to unproductive dance classes and is also very distracting. Thank you for your anticipated cooperatio. If your child must be late or absent please remember to contact the studio. Please remember to wear proper attire to dance class and ensure that hair is secured back. Reminder that black bodysuits and suntan tights are to be worn to all technique and exam classes.
Exam dates are schedule for March 8th-9th, please keep an eye out for an eamil in the next week or two regarding your childs times.
