As a studio, we implement a specific dress code to benefit each dancer enrolled in our program. This document will list the required attire and shoes for both male and female dancers in each class. It is imperative that each dancer has the proper attire and shoes before the first day of class.
If your dancer is enrolled in our Preschool Program, use this Handbook to inform and prepare you for their class!
If you were with us during the 2021 Showcase Season, this is for you!
As we enter the 2021-2022 Season, please fully read this before registering your child for classes.
As a studio, we implement a specific dress code to benefit each dancer enrolled in our program. Not only is it a safety issue when dancers aren’t dressed properly, but it also lowers the level of professionalism in the class when dressed improperly. Having strict guidelines for these requirements will only enhance your dancer’s experience. It is vital that these expectations are met every week, and should any complications occur, we kindly ask that you notify us in the office via email or phone call.
Parents and families will be able to enter the lobby and stay for the first 10 minutes of class if they desire. Parents will also be able to enter the lobby for the last 10 minutes of their dancer's class. For our dancers' safety, the doors will be locked in between each class. Classes at Suite 612 will not have a viewing option for parents.
Parents will have 2 options for drop off if the first class is at Suite #612:
1. If your dancer's first class of the day happens at Suite #612, you will be permitted to drop them off at the back door of that studio.
2. If you are planning to drop off at the main studio (Suite #705), then your child must arrive at least 10 minutes before their class time so that their teacher can walk them over.
No dancers will be permitted to enter through the front door of Suite 612 because that door will always be locked. If their first class is at Suite #705
and they switch to a class at Suite #612, they will ALWAYS be walked over by
a teacher. Additionally, no dancers will be permitted to walk between studios without adult supervision.
Every dancer must have proper shoes and cover-ups to walk between studios. Flip flops, sneakers, and any other type of shoes are permitted. Dancers will NOT be permitted to wear any dance shoes while walking to
and from Suite #612. Each dancer must bring to bring their dance bag and all other items with them while switching classes from Suite #612 to Suite #705.
Students will not be permitted into class after 15 minutes of class start time unless the administration is notified in a timely manner.
Makeup classes are available if there is a corresponding and appropriate class that is open. We allow 4 makeup classes to be scheduled within the season. After January, makeup classes will not be available as classes will be prepping for Showcase.
If removal/cancellation from a class is needed, an email notification must be sent before the 20th of the month to prevent charges for the following month. If you do not request to be removed from the class before the 20th, you will be charged for that class regardless of whether your child can attend. Studio 61 Dance Company will credit your dance account for the amount due if your child does not attend. Studio 61 Dance Company would not refund or credit any funds if written confirmation in an email was not sent via email before the 20th.
