Studio Expectations

Studio Expectations

  • As a Christian dance studio, we expect all of our students to display a Christ-like attitude when receiving dance instruction and while waiting for class. 

    • This means we expect our students to walk in humility, kindness, patience, and love to their fellow classmates. We expect our studio to be free from strife, contention, and gossiping.

  • We ask that all gum, food, and drink(other than water) be kept out of the dance studio room.​

  • Only students registered for the class are allowed in the dance studio.

  • Students are to wait in the waiting area until parents arrive. 

Attendance

  • Attendance is necessary for a student to learn and develop their dance skills. Students should come to class regularly and on time, in order to grow in their dance ability.

  • We expect students to be prompt and prepared for class when it is set to begin.

  • The studio follows the St. Tammany Parish school closings for Holidays and inclement weather.

    • Make up classes for classes closed due to weather may be rescheduled at the sole discretion of the owner.
