Promptness is very important. Classes start on time. Please arrive 5 minutes early to prepare for class. If you wish to chat and catch up with dance friends, arrive even earlier so you are not tempted to do so in class.
Put your shoes on before you enter the studio.
Line up at the door and wait for the teacher to let you in.
Go straight to the centre (or barre for ballet class) and begin your own stretches while you wait for the teacher to mark the roll. Please note: stretches does not mean handstands and cartwheels.
If you have just finished a class and are participating in the next class in the same studio, quietly start on your own stretches while the teacher lets the other students into the room.
If you are late, quietly enter the room and join in, explain why you’re late to the teacher at the end of the class. If the teacher has finished warming the students up and feels like the exercises they are now working on may lead to injury if you are not warmed up properly, you may be asked to watch that particular lesson for your own safety and protection.
Make sure you go to the toilet before class.
Bring water with you. No other food and drink are permitted in the studios.
Put your hand up to ask a question relevant to what the teacher is working on in that time.
Students are not to lean on, or touch studio mirrors.
Students are not to hang or swing from Barres.
All teaching tools, props, visual aids and sound equipment should not be used without permission of the teacher.
Siblings are not permitted to be in the studio while classes are in progress.
Take pride in your appearance.
Be polite and courteous to teachers and peers at all times.
No bullying of any kind will be tolerated.
