Parents are never discouraged from observing classes at the studio. However, the teachers request that you observe the classroom from the observation windows located in the lobby and not by entering the dance studios. Too many adults in the classroom during instruction is confusing to the students, especially at a young age. If your child is not able to separate from you during their allotted class time, they will need to wait until next year to enroll in dance classes.
If you need to speak with one of the teachers, please set up a time apart from the regular class time for conferences. The teachers are very limited in their time between classes and any discussions about a student are best done when the teacher is not rushed and there are no other students present.
For the safety of your children, we DO NOT allow the students to stand outside the building waiting for parents to pick them up. All students are required to remain in the lobby until their parents arrive in the parking lot. The younger children will remain in the dance room when their class is finished if the parent is not present. Please advise your teacher when a student will be riding home with someone other than the parent. Students are not to be dropped off any sooner than 15 minutes prior to their first class. The teachers are not responsible for baby sitting any students either before or after class time. The front door remains locked until 30 minutes prior to the first class each day.
Please park your car in the parking spaces provided...do not park at the end of the sidewalk or parallel to the lot next door. This causes severe traffic jams.
