and their parents.

Absolutely no cell phones or I-pads in class. Students may not leave class for snacks or drinks or to check phone calls or text messages. A water break will be given if needed.

           Parents :

As parents we all want the best for our children and I think we all know life gets busy, some of us even want to direct our children while in class…( where they should stand in line, tell them to pay attention, give them a drink, take pictures while in class, help adjust their tights, etc…) This makes it difficult for the teachers  control in class and is also a distraction  to children that are not your own. Parents, please follow these basic guidelines for your child while attending class.
   *Please call the studio if your child has a fever or is sick for the day.
   *The studio doors may not always be open to observe class. Please do not open the doors if they are closed.   
   * If the studio doors are opened to observe class…..
                              * Do not correct your child from the sidelines!
                              * Do not send the younger sibling in the class to dance around.
                             * If you take photos, don’t ask them to pose during class. Wait for a break.
   * The dance studio is not a babysitting  service while siblings are in class. Parents are responsible
        for your other children in the waiting rooms. The living room provides toys, books, TV, DVD player,
