POLICIES & PROCEDURES
The following information is provided to give you a better understanding of our policies and procedures. Your signature on the registration form indicates your understanding and acceptance of these policies.
GENERAL INFORMATION: At Village Dance Center we teach ballet, pointe, jazz, tap and acrobatic techniques with an emphasis on self-discipline. Each dancer is expected to work diligently to compete with his/herself and to encourage others. DANCERS MUST SHOW RESPECT FOR TEACHERS AND OTHERS AT ALL TIMES.
BALLROOM CLASSES: Are offered in October and February for 6th graders. A separate flyer will be mailed in July.
PERFORMING COMPANY: Dancers 5th grade and older are eligible. This company is chosen through a competitive audition. The fee for auditioning is $20.00. Information will be e-mailed in August.
PROMPT PICK-UP & DELIVERY: No dancers should arrive for class more than 5 minutes early (enough time to change shoes). The back door is open for dancers to wait in the dressing room. Dancers must stay on the front walkway after class. We cannot be responsible if you are late picking up your child. Please be careful as you pull in and out of the parking area and hold the younger dancers hands. Please be courteous. We will let your dancer out promptly and hope you will pick him/her up on time.
PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN: Dancers never need to arrive more than five minutes before class and they need to potty before they leave home. Each preschooler must be potty trained. Please see ballet dress code for your preschool dancer. They will need a black leotard (no skirts that are not attached to the leotard please), pink ballet shoes and black or tan tap shoes.
STUDIO RULES: No Food, Gum or Candy allowed inside. Be kind and courteous at all times. Do not walk through a class that is in progress. No street shoes are allowed on the studio dance floors. Dancers may not come straight from school unless they have permission. If your child is sick, please call the studio to let us know.
INSURANCE: Village Dance Center does not carry medical insurance for its students. It is required that all dance students be covered by their own family insurance policy. If injuries occur, it is understood that the family’s policy is the only source of reimbursement. This includes any outside activity of the studio such as parades, competitions, conventions, and/or performances. Village Dance Center is not responsible for any personal injury incurred during classes or any of these events.
HOLIDAYS: The studio will be closed on Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Break, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President’s Day, Spring Break, Easter Monday and Memorial Day.
