• Every month you or your child will receive a monthly newsletter containing important information in regards to the coming month’s activities at City Stage Dance Academy. You are responsible for all the information in the newsletters.
  • It is imperative that all students dress properly for dance classes. Students coming straight from school or work should carry their dance attire with them and change in the dressing room before class begins. Any student not following these dress codes will not be allowed to take class. I appreciate everyone’s cooperation in this matter. Our dress code is as follows:
    1. All students are expected to have proper shoes for class, no sneakers allowed.
    2. Tights or black stretch pants should be worn by all students.
    3. Anyone wearing Dance Shorts should still wear tights.
    4. No bare legs in any class please.
    5. Only the ballet classes will have a color code of pink or black, all other classes can match tights to outfit.
  • Pre-School Students: Parents are only allowed to stay in dance room for the first couple weeks, if necessary. If pre-school students are still crying after the first month the child will have to be removed from the program since crying becomes contagious! This is nothing to be ashamed of or concerned about it just means that your child is not ready for this type of program.
  • Star Cards: Children will be given a star card on the first day of class. This card is how we keep track of attendance. Please place the card in the basket at the reception desk at the beginning of every class. We will return it to your child at the end of class with the appropriate sticker or stamp.
  • In order for your child to progress in our dance program it is very important that they have a good attendance record. If your child has a long illness or if you will be away on vacation and your child will miss more than two classes please call the studio. If your child is persistently absent they may have to be removed from the program.
  • Students MUST BE ON TIME for class. If a student is going to be late please call to let their teacher know. The teacher has the right to not let a students in if they are more than 10 minutes late for class unless previously notified.
  • We are not responsible for your lost or misplaced articles. We strongly advise not to bring cell phones into the studio at any time.
  • Parents are not allowed to watch dance classes. Since children are easily distracted we keep the door closed so they are more likely to pay attention to the teacher. We do have two open house dates when parents are invited and encouraged to watch their child’s class.
  • On days when there is severe weather; please call the dance studio for information. We will change the outgoing message on the answering machine to let everyone know if we will be closed. We will also post a message on our website when we are closing due to weather.
  • We insist on respect for teachers and secretaries at all times. Any complaints will be heard if done in a respectful manner. We will not tolerate any unruly behavior. If there is an issue please make an appointment with studio director and she will be glad to hear any questions or complaints.
  • City Stage Dance Academy reserves the right to use any photographs or videos that are taken during class or performances of students who attend the studio for use advertising or marketing in print, broadcast, digital or internet formats.
  • If for any reason the student drops out of program before the end of the season, costume and tuition up to the date of students last class MUST BE PAID IN FULL

*These are the rules of our dance studio. If you or your child fails to follow these rules, you will be removed from the dance program*
