Code of conduct
Our goal is to provide the highest quality dance instruction and to uphold a professional caliber. Whether a student is pursuing a dance career or just wanting the finest instruction for recreational purposes, Dance Gallery is the studio of choice. We want your experiences here to be educational, inspirational, and fun. Dancing is an athletic activity as much as it is an art form, so to maintain a students well being as well as preserve the integrity of the studio, the forthright adherence to rules and policies is highly regarded. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the rules and policies.
No gum, food, or colored drink of any kind allowed in the classrooms (plain water is invited in the classrooms)
Students are expected to be early to class. For all children’s classes, students are asked to wait outside the classroom until the teacher or assistant has invited them into class. For older students, if the classroom is available for warm up time, we encourage you to quietly warm up in the class…as long as another class is NOT in session.
Dance Gallery is not set up to “police” rides to and from dance class. We will do our best to make sure that students return to their parents in the hallway. If your child needs to wait for a ride, we insist that students wait inside the dance studio doors for safety purposes, as we are not able to control situations which occur outside of our business doors.
Since Dance Gallery is located in a primarily commercial center, we request that students bring clothing to wear over dance clothes, rather than having them walk down the street with only their tights and leotards worn on the body.
Historically, Dance Gallery has not found it necessary to address this issue, but this is worth mentioning. Our studio is built on the foundation of encouraging each other to do their best. With anything, a bit of competition is understandable, but we feel it is necessary to mention that we request all students of Dance Gallery uphold exemplary character, treat others (students/teachers/parents/office staff) with respect, and encourage positive interaction with classmates. Degrading comments, swearing, stealing, and harming others verbally or physically is grounds for removal from Dance Gallery.
