WELCOME LETTER

Welcome Packet 2020-2021

Welcome to Performing Arts School of Classical Ballet (PASCB). We are so excited to have you join our family!!


Here at PASCB our goal is to introduce each student to the joy of dance in a wholesome, supportive atmosphere while presenting classical ballet in its purest form. This welcome packet includes information that is vital for students ranging from their first year dancing to Company members. PLEASE READ carefully and thoroughly as it covers everything from attire to recital information. We require each student and guardian to follow all guidelines and policies.*

*You will receive two copies of the policy. One is for your records and the other is for our records and requires your signature.**

**Not required for online registration.
Office Hours and Contact information
There is someone available in the office sporadically. If you leave a message on any platform we strive to answer within 24 hours. The best way to contact either studio is to email: info@pascb.com or call (830) 484-8890.

Monthly Communication
Additional and new information as well as reminders and opportunities will be emailed in our monthly newsletter. PLEASE make sure we have a correct email address on file or update the existing one if it has changed. It is the responsibility of the student and parents to check for updates on a regular basis. Instructors will reference the emails in class during heavily scheduled months. Depending on the amount of events occurring in a particular month we will send anywhere from 1 to 5 emails.

Dancer Protocol
We ask that students arrive at the studio no earlier than 15 minutes before their class. There is a dressing room and restroom they can utilize for their items and necessities.

Unless a teacher requests, the only items allowed on the dance floor are: water bottles, other dance shoes (i.e. pointe shoes, jazz shoes), and an optional small towel.

Not allowed on the dance floor: food, gum, cell phones, jewelry, street shoes.

If a student has arrived to class late, please wait till the current exercise is complete before entering the dance floor.

While waiting for your class to begin, stretching and warming up are great. Please keep noise to a minimum.

Lost & Found

There is a basket inside the dressing room for Lost & Found items. Please check before leaving the studio as it is cleaned out every TWO weeks.
A good way to ensure your belongings make it back to you, is to clearly label all dancewear and anything else you may bring to the studio.

Available Classes

Accompanied in the Welcome Packet is a schedule of classes available for your selected studio including distant learning options. These times are set but classes can be added, or removed, based on demand. We also offer small group and private lessons. If you wish to pursue small group or private lessons, distant or in person, please email the office.





Class Levels and Placement

We have an array of class levels for the very young to the very mature. However, class placement is at the discretion of PASCB. Class placement is based on strength, concentration, coordination, experience, and the safety of the dancer. Class levels are not the same as school grade levels and sometimes it may take a dancer several years to move to a new class.

*If you are a beginner we will complete a trail class that is fitted to your dancer by age and then placement will be determined.

Pointe Shoes

Getting pointe shoes is a great achievement in the dance world. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be able to train in pointe shoes and we are always very excited to see our dancers progress.
A dancer must have a certain strength to wear pointe shoes and if they are not truly ready wearing pointe shoes prematurely can cause physical harm. At PASCB we ensure that our students know the proper technique and possess the strength needed before being allowed pointe shoes. As with class placement, dancers will be ready for pointe shoes at different levels in their training. No one dancer is the same.

Please know that you and your dancer MUST receive a letter from PASCB informing that your dancer is now ready for pointe shoes before they are allowed to purchase or wear pointe shoes. Dance stores will not fit a dancer without this letter.

If you are new to PASCB but have trained in pointe shoes at your previous studio, please inform the instructor.

Annual Performance
We hold an annual performance at the end of every season. As we get closer to our performance you will receive a recital packet. PLEASE read the entirety of its contents as it will contain VERY important information.
Be aware that once you have signed up for the performance, you have made a commitment to ALL required dates. There is no refund.


We are so excited to dance with you this season!!
Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
