Dance Etiquette and School Policies



Dance Etiquette

  1. It is the responsibility of all parents to see that their child attends classes regularly and to inquire about any missed newsletters, etc. if your child has been absent. 
  2. Dancers should strive to be in class on time and to warm up while waiting for the teacher to begin.  Dancers arriving to class more than 10 minutes late on an on going basis may be asked to sit and watch class. 
  3. It is important to be well groomed for class.  Hair is to be pulled back from the face and long hair is to be worn up.  A classical bun is required for ballet class.  Dancers are to adhere to the uniform set for the dance discipline they have chosen, a uniform keeps things simple allowing the dancer to concentrate on their art.
  4. As a dancer you should always come to class prepared to work hard and to respect the corrections given by your teacher.  Pushing yourself to do your personal best will result in great rewards!
  5. Respect of others is very important in the performing arts and in life.  Each dancer has the right to enjoy participating in class and developing their art.

Disrespect for others will not be tolerated at Ballare P.A.C.
