Important Rules every student has to follow

1. Come prepared. This includes the appropriate dress, shoes, and grooming for participating in your class.
2. Leave dangling or sharp-edged jewellery at home or in your bag.
3. Leave food and drinks (except closed water bottle) out of the dance space.
4. Don’t chew gum in the dance space. It’s rude to those around you and actually unsafe to do while you’re dancing.
5. Never wear dance shoes outside the studio or wear street shoes inside the studio.
6. Before stepping onto the dance floor with tap shoes, check your shoes for loose screws.
7. Use a dressing room, if one is available, for the personal items you have with you but don’t need for dance class. If a dressing room isn’t available, leave personal items at the back or sides of unused studio walls.
8. Turn off and stow your mobile phone. You have no use for your device during class. Completely silence it by turning it off – not simply setting it to vibrate – so that it will not disrupt class from your bag.
9. Don’t arrive late. If this cannot be avoided, enter the class very quietly.
10. Don’t leave class early. If you cannot avoid making an early exit, talk to the teacher before class. If your exit is an emergency, do so as quickly and discreetly as possible.
11. Don’t talk – not even a whisper – while the teacher is talking.
12. Be attentive at all times. Help class move along for everyone by staying attentive in line as you wait your turn.
13. Pay attention, participate and follow your teacher’s directions. Listen before asking questions. When you do ask questions, make sure that they are necessary and relevant.
14. Approach your class and activities in your class with a good, positive attitude. It helps you and everyone else in your class to learn more quickly and accomplish more.
15. Never sit down unless you are instructed to do so.
16. Watch your language, even when you mess up. The dance studio is no place for expressing yourself inappropriately.
17. Be respectful of others. Allow them the same opportunity you have to learn and participate and space to do it in. The best way to achieve this is to exhibit the Golden Rule at all times.
18. Respect the dance studio/space by keeping it clean and neat. Pick up after yourself – trash that you generate or that you see. Make sure your clothes and other personal items are neat and in the appropriate place when you’re in class and when you’re not.
19. Don’t use things that are not yours or that you don’t have permission to use. Do not turn things on, off, up, or down in the space without express permission.
20. Use good posture. Don’t slouch or hang on the barre (or anywhere else) and be aware of negative body language (like folded arms). After all, dance is about using your body to express a beautiful art form.
21. If you’re late, wait for the okay from your teacher to enter the dance floor. Once permission is granted, find an easily accessible, inconspicuous place to warm up or start participating. Don’t disrupt the class more by trying to apologize for your tardiness.
22. If you are sitting, or sitting out, sit tall. Never lie down. As a dancer, you should always exhibit good posture.
23. Develop spatial awareness (understanding where you are on the dance floor) and demonstrate it.
24. Give the instructor space, but not too much space. Be bold in trying your steps and combinations instead of being shy and tentative in your efforts.
25. Refrain from correcting others. The teacher is the only one in the class with that job.
26. It’s okay to mark combinations while you wait for your turn but only if you are out of the way and don’t disrupt or distract others.
27. If you find you have too many questions about something, save them for after class. Be respectful of the other students in your class.
