Impact Dance Company Policies

The studio is the classroom where all of a dancer's dreams are realized. There are many rules and responsibilities necessary to incorporate for a smoothly running dance studio.  At our studio, we want every student to be the best they can possibly be! It has been our experience that the character of a dancer is built through consistency, commitment, dedication, awareness, and discipline to maximize the classroom teaching/learning experience. Our studio adheres to the following standards and failure to adhere to these requirements could result in the student being asked to withdraw from classes. 

PROPER STUDIO ATTIRE & GROOMING

Proper attire and grooming are MANDATORY. A student not conforming to this dress standard will be asked to leave the class and will be welcomed back once proper attire has been attained. ​

HAIR MUST BE SECURED UP IN A PONYTAIL OR BUN FOR ALL DISCIPLINES

PROPER CLASSROOM DISCIPLINE

A high standard of discipline will be maintained in the classroom. Class disruptions will result in the student being asked to leave the class, and as a parent, you will be duly notified. Subsequent disruptions will result in the student being withdrawn from class.

 

REGULAR AND PROMPT ATTENDANCE

Students are expected to be at the studio and prepared for their class approximately 5 minutes prior to class time. Regular attendance is essential, as all students are relied upon as members of a team effort. Non-attendance is unfair to both the group and the student involved. If for some reason the student is physically unable to participate in class, it is highly beneficial to have them observe the class rather than not attend.

 

PROPER RESPECT FOR STUDIO FACILITIES

Students are expected to:

  • Put garbage and recycling in proper bins.

  • Remove outdoor shoes when entering the studio

  • Have all apparel hung or placed in a dance bag

  • No food is allowed in the classrooms.  Water is permitted.
