Class Rules, Dress Code and Studio Policies

  • Class Placement: Students are placed in class according to age and ability level. A student may be moved to a different class, after evaluation, the teacher finds that the student is not in the proper class for his/her ability.
  • Levels:  “Open” class = advanced level. “*” = need director’s approval prior to joining the class.  Level I-II = beginner to intermediate level.  Level II-III – Intermediate.-Advanced.
  • Instructors:  Here at M.A. Dance Project we believe having different instructors from year to year only benefits the dancer.  Therefore, we do not take “teacher requests”.  Each Faculty Member at M.A. Dance Project exceeds their experience level and brings valuable knowledge to each class and student.
  • Class Attendance: Please make every effort to attend classes. Refunds are not given for student absences. Make up classes are only given to ill students and with in the same month of the absence.
  • Class Attire: all students must obey class attire. Instructors have the right to dismiss students if they are not in the proper attire.
  • Front Lobby Etiquette: when waiting in the front lobby; please keep voices to a minimum, as this area is also used for our office.  No food or drink in the front lobby.  For safety; children should not use the front lobby area as a play area.  Sitting on the floor can be unsafe.  To avoid over crowding; please use the drop off, pick up method.
  • Observation:  parents and visitors will be able to observe classes through our observation windows on the 3rd week of each month.  However, when it comes closer to our Spring Showcase, viewing will be kept to a minimum.  Instructors have the right to close blinds at any time if dancers become distracted.  Also keep in mind the viewing windows are not very large; please be courteous when viewing.
