maddox dance studioGeneral Information

Class Levels & Placements
Students are placed based upon skill levels, coordination, musicality, concentration, and maturity in accepting and understanding corrections. It is important to understand that dance levels are not the same as grade levels in school, and that dance students sometimes take several years to move to a new level. Students are always observed by their teachers to determine level changes if warranted. Dedicated attendance is a must. Regular attendance is part of the discipline of dance!

Performances, Conventions, and Other Opportunities
Students have opportunities to study in master classes, attend a convention, and participate in community shows. We encourage students to take advantage of these opportunities. Information including schedules and costs will be provided in advance.

$40.00 per family- includes 4 tickets per family to the first performance a student is in and 2 tickets to each additional performance a student is in. The recital fee off-sets the rental of the auditorium, the lighting, sound rentals, the printing of tickets/programs, etc. Every family is obligated to pay the recital fee and have all class fees paid before the recitals. An admission charge of $10.00 per person for additional tickets will be made for recitals.

Children size Large through adult sizes range in price from $45-$65
Special sizes can require an additional $6 to $10 per costume depending on the costume company.

Costumes are not refundable, exchanged or cancelled due to the fact that they are being made to order. Costume deposits are made in November and are not able to be canceled, transferred, or refunded. Costumes must be paid in full by January 1st. Costumes are not released to the dancer until they are paid in full. Individual pricing of costumes depends on the style chosen for each particular recital piece.

Private Lessons/Coaching
Private Lessons/Coaching: $50.00 per half hour- Payment required before class. 24-hour notice required for cancellation or lesson fee will be charged. Private lessons are for special coaching only- no comparison to the many benefits of a class setting.

Students or their responsible party must carry their own insurance, and understand that any injuries which may occur are the sole responsibility of the student or the responsible party.

Dress Code & Appearance

Recommended dance ware must be purchased through the studio. Every student must have the required clothing items and have a dance bag. This is strictly enforced. Students will be asked to sit out of class if the dress code is repeatedly abused.

Purchase supplementary dance supplies through » Use teacher code TP39036 with ordering, for 10% off on 1st order and $2.95 shipping.

Please label all dance shoes and clothes with the dancer’s name and phone number! DO NOT wear dance shoes outside. Students must dress in the dressing rooms upstairs only, NOT IN THE RESTROOM.

Hair must be in a BUN for ballet and PONYTAIL for all other classes.

A note on shoes: We require professionally fitted pink leather ballet slippers. We order Revolution Brand shoes. Ballet slippers must fit well—not too wide, not too long. The shoe needs to fit the foot like a glove with “1/2 inch to pinch” at the heel when the foot is pointed. Pointe shoes (toe shoes) are strictly reserved for those dancers who are totally ready, physically, technically and mentally for this big advancement. A young student’s bones are soft and malleable before age 10 and long-lasting damage to the legs and back can be made if a student is placed on pointe too soon. In some instances, even older students are not ready because of body alignment and technique problems. Going on pointe is a very serious matter and commitment.

Adult Dress Code
Our dress code for adults taking Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Zumba, is to wear any “exercise” type clothing in which you feel comfortable. The correct shoe for each discipline is a must!

Answers to Your Burning Questions About Buying Dancewear



Why does our studio prefer Revolution Brand?

You’ll find our products far superior, with a more accurate fit, and competitive prices.

Why do I have to buy a specific color?
A uniform dress code helps keep distractions to a minimum, instills discipline, and keeps everyone looking and feeling professional.
Can’t I buy my Revolution products at a local store?
Revolution only sells to dance studios. They believe teachers are best equipped to properly fit students .
Will the studio know what size he/she needs?

We have a fitting kit. As long-time dance professionals we know how dance shoes are supposed to fit and which products are best.

Is it going to hold up for the entire dance season?

Depending on the growth of the child the shoes should fit for a season. Revolution products come with a 100% quality guarantee. Features like adjustable straps and flexible fabrics help to accommodate growth.

Why do the shoes and Dancewear have to be ordered?

By ordering only what we need, we’re able to keep prices low. Most orders ship very quickly so you’ll have it fast.

Studio Etiquette

Late to Class
Students who are late should wait outside the classroom door until the music stops, and then go in quickly. The warm up time at the beginning of classes are very important. The risk of injury is greater if warm ups are missed. Students who miss warm ups may be asked not to participate in that class session.

Class Observation
Parents/ Visitor observation is allowed at all times (some rehearsals are closed). The observation room will remain available for parents who need to wait inside the studio, BUT THE ROOM MUST REMAIN AS QUIET AS POSSIBLE SO AS NOT TO DISTURB THE CLASSES IN SESSION. ALL SMALL CHILDREN MUST BE SEATED AT ALL TIMES, AND CRYING BABIES REMOVED FROM THE BUILDING TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS. Siblings are not allowed upstairs alone. Strollers must be left outside.

Picking Up Students - Promptly Requested
Students will not be permitted to wait outside the building after dusk or in inclement weather. They can remain upstairs in the student lounge or by the front desk. The evening class students MUST be picked up on time so that the instructors are not delayed as they have other commitments, e.g. dance team, baby sitters, families.
