General Class Information for 2020 Spring Term:

Listed below information on dress code, missed classes, term holidays and parking!

 

Little Stars: 

You and your dancers are welcome to come to class in anything comfortable to dance in. If dancers do not have ballet shoes then barefoot is preferable. Sox are slippery on the dance floors.  Don't forget you also need something comfortable to dance in...you will be dancing too! *Ballet shoes, tights as well as ballet outfits are available for sale in the studio. 

Fairy Ballet: 

Dancers are required to come to class in ballet attire. Leotard or tutu & tights for girls, shorts and a T shirt for boys. When the weather is very warm the girls are welcome to come to class without tights. I ask that all dancers with long hair have their hair up. (Buns not required). All dancers should have their hair out of their face while dancing. No costume jewlery, crowns or tiaras please (we provide the girls with plenty of costumes and props to wear throughout the term!) 
 Shoes: Dancers need to have ballet shoes for class. H&M dance slippers or gym slippers are not permitted as they do not support dancers feet, are too sticky and often slip off while dancing. *Ballet shoes, tights as well as ballet outfits are available for sale in the studio. If your child is trying the class for the first time they are welcome to dance barefoot for the first class and dress in something comfortable. If your child decides to continue with the course they will need the proper ballet attire.

Missed classes & Make ups: If your child needs to miss class due to illness they are able to make up the class. Please make sure to email me at least 24 hours in advance to let me know which class your child will be attending so I can make sure I have enough space in the class, costumes, coloring pages and stickers. The make up must be done within the term. 
 
Parents watching class: I am occasionally asked by a parent if they can sit in and watch the class especially at the beginning of the term if their child is new and unsure. If your child needs reassurance you are there, you can tell them that you will be waiting in the waiting area for them. With the exception on Little Stars your child needs to be able to be in the class without you there. Please understand that with this age group it is difficult to have one parent in the room without it being a distraction to the other children therefor I have a strict closed door policy. If you have any questions about this and would like to discuss I am happy to set up a time to chat. I thank you in advance for your understanding. All parents are invited into the class room before the holiday break in December for a class demo.
