The dress code will be enforced. Female Creative Movement dancers are to wear a leotard (no loose glitter please), tights and an optional skirt. Only black, or theatrical pink leotards. Black, tan or pink tights. Students may wear short plain black or pink ballet skirts, no long attached skirts, short attached skirts are ok, no tutus. Boys black tight fitting t-shirt, black shorts.
Ballet/Tap/Jazz Level 1 and up dancers wear uniforms in class.
Jazz students may bring jazz pants/leggings, or spandex dance shorts to wear, over leotard and tights, during the jazz portion of class. The BTJ I & older dancers will follow the dress code stated in their registration/confirmation email.
Street clothing will not be allowed. No shirts, sweats, or other baggy cover-ups. Hair must be tied back. Boys are to wear a fitted top and non-baggy pants or shorts.
All dance shoes are to be purchased and fitted with us at our shoe fitting. This is to ensure a proper fit and proper shoes that have been approved for our dance floors. New shoes may be purchased through the studio at cost plus postage (pre-paid orders only). We will notify you of the dates and times in your confirmation email.
We expect the students to arrive dressed in the appropriate dancewear and with their dance shoes. The dancers are to be well behaved and to understand that they are in a learning environment. Dancers need to respect their fellow classmates and be ready to work in a team style class setting. This includes home practice of dance skills and Choreography, so they are prepared for class the following week.
Students must be able to control their talking and be able to be quiet and still during the teacher’s instructions. Students who have difficulties in these areas may be removed from the class until they master these important skills. Our classes are “closed classes” to help the students with these skills.
The waiting rooms are for families who need a quiet place to wait while students are in class. Noise from the waiting room can affect the environment in the studio, please keep the waiting room very quiet. We encourage our families to leave their students with us during their class times and enjoy the free time.
Food (including gum, pop & candy) is not allowed in the waiting rooms or studios.
Water is fine.
Street shoes are not allowed in any of the studios or beyond the shoe rack. Dancers are to leave street shoes on the shoe rack before class and bring in any other personal items, such as dance bags, into their dance class. If it is necessary to bring a cell phone it must be turned off. For security reasons, only students and teachers are to go beyond the shoe rack area. No food gum etc is allowed in the studio, water bottles are encouraged for the dancers in longer classes.
Dress Code - THE DRESS CODE WILL BE ENFORCED!
Students may not wear street shoes, jeans, baggy shirts, etc to class. Hair must be secured and away from the face.
Noise Policy - The classroom can become very noisy very fast, please help us by creating a QUIET WAITING ROOM.
We encourage our dance families to enjoy the free time while their children dance. Most families do leave during their child's classes. We have your phone number(s) with us each day.
Please do not leave students in the waiting room without a parent or other adult. It is ok to leave your older students (roughly ages 10+).
Class Time - Students should arrive at the studio at least 5 minutes prior to their class start time fully dressed and ready to dance. We will open the doors to the studio (from the waiting room) when they are invited to come in.
Food Policy - No food is allowed in either studio. This includes any food, gum, candy, pop. Water is fine. Please be sure your dancer does not have gum or candy in their mouth when they walk through the doors.
Bathroom Breaks - Please encourage your dancer to use the restroom before class time.
Water - In studio 1 we have a water cooler for the dancers to use AFTER CLASS. Students aren't allowed this before class (to cut down on those "potty breaks")
Questions & Comments - If you have any questions or comments PLEASE do not ask us during class time, instead email (which is typically best) or call. Teachers do not have breaks during their dance nights and we need to dedicate that time to the dancers.
Student Information - If any of your information changes during the year, please email us. We want to keep our contact info up to date so we can contact you if needed. Also please make us aware of any major allergies or other health issues.

Feedback - some feedback from recital 2011. Thanks everyone, we really enjoyed recital too and absolutely love teaching each and every one of the dancers!
"Julie, Brittany, and Megan,
Thank you for such an incredible recital! It was amazing! You guys made our girls look so good out there! Thank you. I also doubted that there were many dry eyes during the Dad’s dance song. I got misty-eyed during the evening recital and I had already seen it in the afternoon one!
The routines were great, the costumes flashy and fun, and it was a pleasure to watch.
Thanks for all of your hard work!"
"This year has been so special to Emily and our family was so thankful to be able to be a part of your dance family! The recital was precious. Both grandmas and papa came. It was especially sentimental for my mom and I as I tucked in Emily's ties I looked up and there was my mom watching us thinking about my first year of dance. Our theme was the LOVE BOAT! Oh, the memories! Thank you!"
"Thank you for everything!! Emily had a great year, and we appreciate all the time and energy you have poured out!!"
"Recital was great, you did a good job with the girls. Believe it or not, Josie is still dancing her recital routines for the fun of it. She has taught her older sister the pre-team one! She says she wants to be a dance teacher like you, so why not practice on her sister! : ))"
"I just wanted to say thank you for all your (and the girls) hard work. Ema had such a good time in class."
"I want to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. The recital was awesome! You are so talented and have soooo much patience with the girls!"
Thanks so much for such a great dance recital! The girls did so well. Thanks for all you've done in preparing the girls. Evie just loves you, and she can't wait for summer dance!
"I just want to say how much I enjoyed the dance recital this evening! Thank you so much for all your hard work and patience with the girls. She had fun and we loved watching her on stage!"
"The recital was so much fun!
Thank you for all of the work that you did to make Saturday and all of the classes through the year special. You have a special gift for working with young people."
