Can I observe class?
Classes can be observed from our viewing windows so you can see your child’s progress. Please limit your observation so that all parents can have a chance to witness their child’s class. All doorways must be kept clear so we can maintain safe exits. If the door is closed between the waiting room and the studio, we ask that you respect the instructors choice to concentrate on teaching and learning during that session.
What Should I Wear?
Jazz & Lyrical: Tights, leotards, close-fitting tops or jazz pants. Dance shorts with tights and close fitting shirts. Knee pads for floor work in upper level classes may be required.
Ballet: Tights and any color leotard so teachers can see proper alignment. Hair should be neat and/or tucked into a bun.
Boys: black ballet slippers, black tights or dance pants and T-shirt.
Hip Hop: No jeans. No large baggy shirts so teachers can see you move. Knee pads might be required.
