Annual Recital - Studio C holds our annual recital in Mid-June. Participation is recital is not mandatory; but is a wonderful experience for dancers that create a lifetime of memories!!
Attendance – Attendance is taken at every class. Good attendance is imperative, as absences can hold back an entire class, and the studio cannot jeopardize its responsibilities to the rest of the class for one student. Please make every effort to have your child at every class. Make-up classes are available if your child cannot attend his or her regular class time. Any dancer with more than 4 absences between March & June will not be allowed to participate in recital for the benefit of all dancers. This rule will be strictly enforced.
We Do Ask that dancers try to arrive at least 5 minutes before their class time to prepare for class.When dancers arrive late to class it is extremely distracting to both the teachers and dancers.
Class Observation is only permitted on specific days. We will hold two parent observation days during the year, one around the Christmas holidays & one around recital time. One of our studio rooms has an observation window located in the lobby.
No food, candy, or open drink containers will be allowed in class.
Little Stars & Showstopper dancers will not be allowed to leave the building without their parents or carpool.
Communication – The main form of communication at Studio C is done through e-mail. Please include an e-mail address on the registration form.
Important dates & events are always posted on the bulletin board in the student lobby. We ask that parents & dancers keep an eye out for any new information.
