Policies

 

Students

We expect all dancers to:

Respect all teaching staff. This includes listening when the teacher is speaking, not talking back, not talking during lessons unless asking a question and applying corrections/trying new suggestions positively, without hesitation.

Treat all other dancers as you would wish to be treated yourself. Support each other, don’t criticize. Encourage your fellow class members and be positive. Bullying in any form will not be tolerated. Also, do not correct other members of your class. You are not the teacher. Concentrate on your own learning and being a better dancer yourself!

  • Practice teamwork and fairness.
  • Be on time. In fact, be early. Arriving late to class is disruptive and disrespectful.
  • Be prepared. There are no excuses for coming to class unprepared. If you are unsure of uniform or     what is required for class each week, please ask.
  • Always ask for help if you need it.
  • Consistently try your best.
  • Dancers are required to adhere to our dress code.
  • Treat the studios, premises and possessions of all other dancers with respect and consideration.

Attend class every week unless with good reason. Regular class attendance is key to improving yourself as a dancer. For every class you miss, you effectively put yourself back a week in terms of training. Over time this can have a big impact on your overall standard

Parents

The vision of dansko Studios is to provide all young dancers exceptional role models in a healthy and encouraging environment. I recognize the importance of dance in the lives of young people; I pledge that I will participate in my child’s dance activities in accordance with the following:

  •         I will promote teamwork and sportsmanship for all dancers and spectators in a positive manner.
  •         I will not question the judgment of any faculty member or choreographer.
  •         I will support my child’s class, teachers, and choreographers and resolve to allow the teachers to     manage their dancers and choreography as they feel best benefits the entire class.
  •         Because I am a role model for my child as well the other dancers, my personal conduct at the studio, performances and other studio events must be above reproach, and represent the highest standards of morality, teamwork and sportsmanship.
  • Please do not have dialogue with a teacher regarding a problem before, during or in between classes.
