Our Policies/Dress Code
The director determines individual class placement according to dance ability and age. If at any time a student appears to be incorrectly placed, the student will be moved to an appropriate class.
Please call the studio if your child will be missing class. Students may make up a class with another of the same level or a level lower within one month.
Notices & Updates
Our staff makes every effort to keep students and parents informed of all studio information through our bi-monthly newsletter. A current copy will always be posted on the bulletin board, send via e-mail and posted on this website.
Our annual recital will be held in June. Although participation is optional, we encourage students to perform and experience this wonderful event.
Costumes will be ordered in mid-December and are paid in two installments. The initial payment is due by October 15th and the complete payment is due by February 15th.
We follow the Wilmington Public School snow cancellation policy ONLY. If snow begins after the school day is in progress, please call the studio voicemail or check the studio website for closing information. We DO NOT follow the public school calendar. A vacation and holiday schedule will be announced in the 1st newsletter.
Adherence to the dress code is mandatory to promote uniformity and to enable instructors to determine proper body placement. All hair must be tightly pulled back. We do not permit baggy clothes, T-shirts or sweatshirts in any class. During the winter months, students may wear a ballet wrap or tight fitting sweater or top to warm-up.
