Newsletter September Welcome!

WELCOME TO AN EXCITING DANCE SEMESTER

We have an exciting school year planned for you! You will receive a Email Newsletter every Month! If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to someone in the office or schedule a meeting with your dancers teacher and/or Ms. Andrea.
We request that you keep all communications for the school year as you receive them from our office.

  • Classroom Policies - There is no chewing gum or eating during class times. You are encouraged to bring water so you can keep hydrated. You are only allowed to bring a positive and open mind to class. You need to adopt that frame of mind so you can face the challenges that class brings you and overcome them. The word CAN’T is one of the worst words you could use in our classes. We are also committed to treating everyone the same regardless of your dance experience and I expect the same out of my students. NO DIVAS!
  • LOBBY RULES:
    Parents are fully responsible for watching siblings in the lobby area and it their responsibility to clean up after children. There is no running, screaming, banging on walls....etc. Remember: NON dance students are NOT allowed into the dance room for safety purposes. Siblings are to please sit with their parents to avoid disrupting dance classes.
  • Please respectful to EVERYONE-in the Lobby. You are to support your student as well as ALL STUDENTS. No Gossiping or Drama. WE will NOT Tolerate Drama. ** Policy- we will ask you politely to excuse yourself from the lobby. The studio is a HAPPY place to build confidence and relieve stress.

Look forward to seeing all our SHINING STARS AND SMILES!

Leaps and Twirls,

Miss Andrea
