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.

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.

Dress Code & Appearance

Recommended dance wear 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.
Please label all dance shoes and clothes with the dancer’s name and phone number! DO NOT wear dance shoes outside. Clean dance wear is a must, launder it daily, have several leotards to interchange, while one is being laundered. Wash your FACE MASKS EVERY NIGHT!

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

A note on shoes: We will supervise all shoe fittings. 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, or tap, is to wear any “exercise” type clothing in which you feel comfortable. The correct shoe for each discipline is a must!

YOU ASK

WE ANSWER

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.

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.

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.
