To ensure the smooth, safe running of DCM and an enjoyable experience by all, below you will find our code of conduct. As always, we are open to feedback, so if any of the requirements outlined below are unclear or concerning, please give us a call to discuss further. Following a formal meeting, we do reserve the right to dismiss or take disciplinary action on any students or parents who breach our studio’s code of conduct.
Families who do not comply with their fee or payment obligations may be charged a late fee, and/or excluded from potential, if any, performances. External debt collection may occur when fees remain overdue and this will be at the expense of the client.
No classes (including private lessons) or teachers are to be disturbed unless it is an emergency. Parents are not to approach teachers or students during class and if messages or food/drink/medication needs to be passed on to a student, it must be done in advance prior to class and through a DCM staff member.
All parents must wait in the waiting areas or outside of the studios until classes have been dismissed unless participating in the Tiny Tumblers class.
We are unable to take responsibility for our students before or after their scheduled classes and it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure their child is picked up and dropped off on time. In the case of an emergency or unavoidable delay, please contact the studio immediately to inform us of the situation so we can keep your child calm and safe until they can be collected.
Any questions or complaints must go through the Principle – parents and students are to contact Kyie Tonellato via phone, in person, or via email. Personal meetings with the studio principal can happily be arranged on 0422974747.
In the rare case of a parent or student showing disrespect or defamation to any parent, staff member or student, a meeting will be called immediately, and dismissal may be considered at the discretion of the principal. Physical, mental, emotional or cyber bullying by parents, staff or students will not be tolerated and may result in dismissal from the studio.
DCM takes no responsibility for any stolen or misplaced property on the studio premises and we encourage our families to avoid bringing valuable items into the studio where possible.
DCM management reserves the right to change teachers or timetabling when necessary at any time throughout the year.
Choreography, any costuming owned by DCM and studio policies remain the intellectual property of DCM and may not be reproduced or sold by any students, parents or staff without permission of the principal/s.
DCM expects you to treat all members as you would like to be treated.
