OUR GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY
Durango Dance is committed to educating students in the art of dance. We are dedicated to instilling self expression, discipline and passion in each of our students. Whether recreational or professional, Durango Dance will help students gain the skills necessary to succeed. It is our desire to offer each dancer the opportunity to grow in confidence, coordination, creativity, technique and to gain a deeper appreciation for music and for the love of dance. Durango Dance will also provide dancers with a positive learning experience that inspires students to grow through social interactions with peers and teachers. Most importantly, students are encouraged to have fun and enjoy their journey with us in dance.
Level and class placement is based on both age and skill level, as well as maturity, and how many classes student is taking. Please be aware that students can expect to spend more than one year at a given level. Teachers do their best to recommend correct placement for each student based on the previous year’s assessment. However, teachers will observe all students during the first 2-3 weeks of each session and may ask a student to join a different class. For the safety of our students and to maintain the quality of training, dancers cannot always be placed in the same class with friends. Students should focus on their training and work hard in classes in order to advance.
DROP OFF AND PICK UP
Students may arrive early for class if they wait quietly. We request students arrive at least 10 minutes before class time to prepare for class. Students must be picked up immediately following each class.
Durango Dance has limited parking, including 10 spots reserved for our customers. Parking is first come, first served; but in order to park in the lot, cars must have a Durango Dance sticker in the window. Stickers do not insure that you will have a spot waiting for you. They may be purchased for $5. Please do not park in Durango Craft Spirits reserved spots.
Missed class should be made-up within 4 weeks of an absence. Make-up classes are available only upon consent of the instructor. DD cannot guarantee a make-up class at the same level or in the same style.
Observation is always allowed through the studio windows or doors. Please watch quietly and refrain from distracting students. In-room parent observation is permitted on an announced dates or upon invitation of the instructor. Special guests are allowed into the studios by permission of the instructor, as long as they observe quietly.

Durango Dance will follow 9R district closings. Please check the 9R website. In the event of closures for weather, we will offer make-up class options to all families affected by the studio closure.
By signing up my child for classes at Durango Dance, I accept the reasonable risk of injury to my child from events such as falls, collisions, acts of nature, and the like.
I allow for photos and videos to be taken of my child for promotional materials such as social media, website, and other public materials. Photos and videos will not have identifying information listed.
