- All lessons begin with a warm-up.
Students should arrive on time properly dressed and ready to dance. Missing part of a warm-up can risk injury. Improper clothing
hinders movement and makes it difficult to view correct body placement. No jewelry is permitted in class and long hair must
be worn up! For a complete description of our dress code, please see our policies by clicking here:
- In order to prevent injury proper shoes
must be worn in all classes. Ballet shoes are to be pink for girls and black for boys. We use tan jazz shoes and the foot
undeez or dance paws for lyrical class. Tap shoes are black jazz/tap oxford. Hip hop students need black dance sneakers. The
pre-school combo classes need pink ballet slippers and black patent leater shoes (available at Payless). If you have questions
regarding what your dancer needs please ask. Shoes and dancewear can be purchased through Dance Distributors at 1-800-33-DANCE.
We ask that students DO NOT wear their street shoes on the dance floor.

FIRST WEEK EACH MONTH! A $10 late fee will be assessed to all payments not received on time. Checks that are mailed to the
studio must be received by the due date. Payments received after the due date but dated before will NOT be accepted as on
time payments. For example, if your dancer has class on Tuesdays your tuition is due the first Tuesday of each month.
A payment not received by the second Tuesday of the month would be considered late. A student whose tuition is in arrears
will not be permitted to attend class until the account made current. This will be strictly enforced. There is a $30 returned
