Students are asked to come to class in dance attire appropriate for the class. Ballet I classes have a uniform for class.
Please have your child wear either a leotard and tights or a tutu and tights. Ballet shoes are required for class. Ballet shoes are for sale in the studio but you are not obliged to purchase from Studio Quint.
Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Musical Theatre:
Dancers may wear dance attire for this class.
Dancers may wear dance attire for this class. Tap shoes are required for the class which can be rented for 20 chf for the year or purchase. Tap shoes are for sale at the studio for 45 chf.
Dance sneakers or tennis shoes and comfortable attire to dance in.
Dancers should wear their hair up and out of their face so they can see easily while dance. Please do not wear jewellery to class. Earrings are ok as long as they are not dangling.
Food and Drinks In Class:
Dancers are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to class. No food is allowed in the dance room but is ok in the lobby and changing room.
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. For all classes except 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. I thank you in advance for your understanding.
WC Needs During Dance Class:
Please make every effort to have your child use the toilet before class. It is disruptive to class when a toilet break is needed – usually it has a domino effect. Sometimes it can’t be helped, though. If your child needs to use the restroom during class, they should tell their teacher and they will be directed to the restroom. If they can’t do this independently, please sit outside of the studio so that you can be called to assist your child.
Entering The Dance Studio:
Class begins when students are invited into the dance room by their instructor. Please do not allow your child to enter the dance room before that time.
