Corrections and Behavior
Students are expected to behave in class. Students will be asked to not participate in class if they are disruptive. Dance is about body positions; therefore there will be times that the teacher will make hands-on corrections.
Regularly attending class is important in the development of the student. If a student misses more than four classes from January to the recital they may not participate in the recital unless due to family emergency or severe illness.
Parents may observe from the lobby with the closed screen TV. They are welcomed to observe the class in the studio two assigned weeks during the year. Please remain in the lobby at all other times of the year.
Classes may be cancelled due to bad weather. Shine Dance Company will follow Three Village School District, however, if roads and conditions are not suitable for driving classes will be cancelled. Please check our website front page for any delays or cancellations. Students may attend another age appropriate class for a make-up. There are no refunds or credit given due to weather. Please call the studio or visit the website for updated weather cancellations.
