Our Policies

Setting a new standard for dance schools

 

The studio welcomes children ages 3 and up.

Our areas of study are ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, musical theater, pointe and hip hop. Currently the studio has 7 competition teams with three of those being competitive travel companies.

Over 30 students from the studio have received dance scholarships and we are positive that several more students will recieve more- this coming season!

All messages sent to teachers of LSOD must also be sent to Laura, the director. Text messages, emails, and even phone calls must be duplicated!

 

Follow our studio policies to ensure your child's safety, progress and positive experience here at LSOD!

 

Class Behavior

LSOD wants every student to have and exceptional and enjoyable dance experience. We will treat you and your children with respect. We expect our students to have the same attitude towards all teachers and fellow dancers. Please share the following with your children:

*Pay attention to your teacher- Please do not talk to your friends during class! It disrupts the whole class and makes it difficult for the teacher to communicate with other students. Meet your classmates before or after class for social time!

*We allow ONLY water in the dance room. You may have food and drinks only in the lobby. Please dispose of all trash PROPERLY in a waste basket.

*Do not pull or hang from the Ballet Barres. They can be pulled off the wall or broken. Ballet Barres are for balance and support.

*Come prepared to dance- attire, grooming, attitude, desire to succeed, and energy!

Classroom Etiquette


Reasonable rules and standards are provided to promote self-discipline. Students should arrive at the school with sufficient time to change into dance shoes to begin class on time. Students who arrive 10 minutes after the scheduled class time are welcome to observe the class; however, they will not be permitted to participate unless there is an extenuating circumstance. Notifying a teacher via email or phone of a late student is not acceptable with an hour or less until class start time. If students need to leave before the end of the class, they should notify the teacher before class begins. Students may not leave the classroom without first receiving permission from the teacher.

Teachers of LSOD have the responsibility to see that their class is under control, and they have the authority to dismiss any student who will not cooperate and is a disruption to the rest of the class. Inappropriate dress or behavior will not be allowed. No gum, food or drinks other than water will be permitted inside the classrooms during class or rehearsal.

It is important for parents and students to understand that dance class is not the same as your grade in school. Nor do you dance from 8am to 3pm Mon through Friday. In most cases, the class will progress as a group but not all the time. Every child will be challenged in each class to compete against themselves not others.

Your Children are a Reflection of You ~
Good Manners and Proper Etiquette are always expected.
