Visitation. We know, as parents you want to be actively involved with your child’s dance classes. On the specially designated dates in November and March all parents are invited to come and watch their student’s entire class. In addition, Kidlet through KidDance2 have special visitation times each month just for you. You are invited to watch the last 10 minutes of class the last full week of the month. All parents are invited.
Attendance. Regular attendance is important. Poor attendance affects performance and progress of the class. Dancers should arrive 10-15 minutes before class to prepare and warm up. Please plan to have your child attend classes if they are only mildly ill, and not contagious. They will still learn by watching. In respect of the class, the instructor, and your safety (student’s safety), students arriving 15 minutes or more late, are asked to enter their classroom and sit to watch class. Please call the desk personnel in advance to inform of any and all absence. Makeup lessons for missed classes must be made up within 2 weeks of absence. Students should have a written permission slip to leave class early. During the last 6 weeks of class it is imperative that no more than 2 lessons are missed. Children missing more than 2 lessons will be referred to Miss Suzanne for evaluation. It may make them ineligible for the Spring Performance.
Parents of young children, please have them use the restroom before class. Please be prompt in picking students up after class. For your child’s safety, please come inside to pick them up. If you must be late, please notify the studio in advance and have your child wait inside the reception area. Do not leave siblings unattended at any time.
