POLICIES AND MORE…

ARRIVAL TIME

Arrival time for all classes is NO EARLIER than 5 minutes before class when classes run back to back. Interruptions are distracting especially for the younger students. The instructor will open the door when it is time to change classes. The studio will open for the first class of the day approximately 10 to 15 minutes before class.  When the “OPEN” sign is turned on, the doors are unlocked.

LOCATION

Our classes are held at 1413 Falcon Rd.  When entering the property on Falcon Rd., traffic must stay to the right so the drop off lane will run smoothly. Parking will be in the center around the trees and to the east or west of the property. There will be no parking directly in front of the building to allow for a drop off lane.

PICKING UP CHILDREN

Please let us know who is picking up your child. Be prompt! If an emergency arises and you are running late, please call the studio phone at 580-318-2255 and let us know so your child does not worry.  You may also text to the studio phone.

VISITORS

No visitors are permitted during class time! If a student is unable to attend class without a parent, then he/she should not be taking dance. Also, your child is not allowed to bring friends to observe class. We cannot be liable for children not taking class. In the case this happens, we will call a parent to pick the child up.

Having a “no visitors” policy reduces distractions thus giving us the full attention of our students. Parents will have several opportunities to observe class and we will notify you as to when we will be allowing visitors. Be sure to check our website at the beginning of each month to read that month’s newsletter or calendar of events.

COSTUMES & RECITAL FEE

Costumes for the recital will be ordered in December/January. One costume is ordered for each class, except for Musical Theatre and Vocal Performance classes. At the time of enrollment, at least one of your child’s costume deposits is due.  Additional costume deposits for additional classes must be paid by November 1st.

A $15 recital fee is due in January for all dancers participating in the May recital. We will bill you for your child’s costume balance as soon as we order costumes.  Costume balances are normally due by the first week of February.

STUDIO ONE RECITAL

Our recital marks the culmination of our dance year and is held in two parts, Act I and Act II.  If your child is in one class, he or she will be in one of the two recitals.  If your child is in multiple classes, your child may possibly be in both. The recitals are held the weekend after school is dismissed by Altus Public Schools.   AHS Graduation is on Friday night, our dress rehearsals are on Saturday and our recitals are on Sunday.  The week of our recital, Shanda’s Shots will take professional group and individual pictures during all classes.  KEYB videos our recitals as well.  Recital T-shirts are sold with all the dancers’ names on the back as a momento of our big day!
