Uniforms must be worn to all classes so that teachers can correct students appropriately. Hair must be in a bun for all classes except for Babyballet Tinies, Movers and Movers, Beginner classes & Hip Hop which may be in a ponytail. Grooming is important for class as it creates less distraction and is showing respect for the teacher, fellow students and the studio.
Punctuality is important for any dancer. Please make sure the child is on time for their class as valuable information could be missed and it is disruptive to the other students and teacher. Classes are carefully planned according to the time allocated and the child is at a detriment when not punctual.
