All practices are very important. Students should be to every practice. We are aware that life is busy, so if your child must miss practice please let us know in advance, and do not miss for flimsy excuses such as: going shopping, being too tired, etc. Dancing is a class effort. When one person misses practice, class time is not as productive for the rest of the students.
Add & drop a class:
Add – You can add a dance class at anytime unless registration is closed in April & May when we are getting ready for recital.
Dropped classes have to be done by the Director. To drop a class you must send an email 30 days prior to dropping class. You will be required to pay the full tuition for the current month or up to 30 days. The tuition will be fixed for the following month or 30 day from the date the notice was given.
By agreeing to this studio Policies and Procedures form you consent to let Lone Peak Studios use any photo and or recording taken of me or my child associated with dance or this studio for publicity, promotion or advertising purposes. You also agree that all of these photos and or recordings associated will remain property of Lone Peak Studios.
Arrival and pick-up time:
Please bring your student and pick up your child on time. We are not responsible for them after the class is over. Students may arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before class and be picked up no later than 5 minutes after class. The teacher’s plan on that time to prepare for class. After 5 minutes LPS has the right to charge a $1 a minute beyond the 5 minute pick up and drop off time.
*Arrive to class on time for a proper warm up. If the student is more than 20 minutes late they may be asked to warm up on their own on the sidelines or sit out for the remainder of the class to avoid injury.
*To sit out in class for any reason the student must have a written consent from a parent or doctor.
*Dancers must wear the proper attire for their class including the correct dance shoes and their hair up. If they do not have the right attire they will be asked to call their parents to bring the right dance wear so they can make the most out of their class.
*Dancers are encouraged and expected to have positive attitudes, respect for others and always give their best efforts in class.
*Family and friends observation is aloud the last 5 minutes of each class. Besides that we encourage the parents and friends not to be in the room during class because it is distracting to the students.
*Please do not miss class unless you are ill and contagious. Keep in mind that if team dancers miss two weeks prior to a performance for any reason they could be moved out of the formation and will not be permitted to perform at the next performance.
In April/May Student evaluations are completed be their teachers and presented to students to acknowledge accomplishments, give advice and assess class advancement for the new dance season.
Email/text. Most of our communication is done via email or text. We use the contact information from your registration to communicate. If for any reason you are not getting the information you need please contact our dance director to make sure we have the right contact information for you. Make sure when you register you click yes to receiving emails and do not opt out. This is how we communicate with you and send out important information.
Correct attire is required and is important for the dancer’s success in class. When students dress like a dancer, they act and dance like a dancer. More importantly they need to be in the right attire so they can move like they need to and so we can see their bodies to make sure they are moving correctly as to help teach correct habits and avoid injury. We do not allow midriff tops or inappropriate dance wear. If students do not come to class with correct dance clothes and shoes they will be asked to call their parents to bring them their correct attire before they are allowed to dance. Please take the dress code seriously. Refer to what to wear and bring to class below.
