Rules and Guidelines for Dance Class

Please arrive promptly to class – if you have to change please try to be present five minutes before your class time so that the class begins on time.  Arriving late to class is a distraction to the other students, as well as the teacher.

 

PLEASE DO NOT WEAR YOUR DANCE SHOES OUTSIDE AND THEN COME IN TO DANCE!   MAKE SURE TO BRING YOUR SHOES WITH YOU AND CHANGE INTO THEM INSIDE THE STUDIO. We have had a lot of difficulty attempting to keep our dance floor clean.  If students wear their shoes outside, they track in a lot of dirt and sand, which makes the floor dirty and gritty, which is a hazard to our dancers.  It also ruins the soles and taps of the dance shoes – they are not meant to be worn outside.  THERE IS NO FOOD OR DRINK PERMITTED IN THE STUDIO OTHER THAN WATER.

 

DRESS CODE:

Jazz; Hip Hop and Modern ClassBLACK JAZZ PANTS WITH LEOTARDS, BLACK ATHLETIC TANKS OR “STUDIO FITTED T-SHIRTS OR TANKS” ARE APPROPRIATE.  No other t-shirts are acceptable. Recital T-shirts may only be worn in March-June, during recital season. DRESS CODES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. Only Jazz shoes or Jazz sneakers are appropriate footwear.  Street wear Sneakers are NOT permitted for dance class.  The sole of a sneaker is not amenable to dancing; in fact, it can cause serious injury because it can stick to the floor during a turn or a jump.  Any student wearing sneakers to class will be asked to remove them and dance bare foot.  No student will be permitted to dance in their socks for safety reasons.

 

Tap Class – same attire as above but with tap shoes.  Sneakers are not permitted.

Ballet ClassBlack Leotard with a skirt and tights.  T-shirts and pants are not permitted in ballet class.  Ballet shoes (or pointe shoes for pointe class) are the only acceptable footwear for ballet class.

 

Creative Movement Class – Leotard and pink tights – any leotard color is acceptable.  Please note that students participating in this class are required to have ballet AND tap shoes for this class.

No hanging jewelry of any sort – i.e., necklaces, hanging earrings, bracelets, etc. are permitted.  HAIR MUST BE PULLED BACK FOR EVERY TYPE OF CLASS.  If you forget a hair tie, your teacher will have a supply on hand.

 

PLEASE REFRAIN FROM ANY EXTRANEOUS TALKING DURING CLASS. Talking excessively during class is disruptive to the class as a whole.  A student who is not cooperating with this policy will be given a warning.  If the disturbance continues, the student will be asked to wait outside the class until he or she can be cooperative and return.

 

Please remember there are no cell phones allowed at dance class, please TURN THEM OFF OR PUT THEM IN VIBE MODE and leave them in the dressing room before you start class.

 

Please understand that our goal is to provide a valuable service for your child; one that is professional, one that teaches your child a good quality dance foundation and one that encourages self-esteem and a love and appreciation of the art of dance.  We wish to keep the lines of communication open.   If you have any questions or concerns, please call or email Miss June or Miss Nicole at the studio (516) 931-7947,  info@thestudiodp.com .  Thank you for your cooperation.

 

We are looking forward to a spectacular year of dance!!!
