ARRIVAL TIME

Arrival time for each class is different.  Before classes begin, you will receive an email with instructions to follow for drop off/pick up and arrival and departure times.  Please follow them carefully!  Our new studio will have one drop off/pick up lane in the front.  Anyone parking to walk a dancer inside must park in the back of the studio and use the back entrance.  We share a building with other businesses so we must be respectful of parking.  We strongly encourage everyone to use the drop off lane, if possible.  Most classes will have an instructor outside retrieving children and another inside preparing them for class.  Interruptions are distracting especially for the younger students. The instructor will open the door when it is time to change classes. Again, pay special attention to the schedule and your class’s instructions.  The first few weeks are always a learning experience and our time to work out issues.  Please be patient!  We are in a new location so we’ll get it all worked out eventually.

LOCATION

Our classes are held at 900 N. Park Lane.  If using the drop off/pick up lane, you must enter the lane from northbound traffic.  The single lane will move north close to the covered porch and will exit into northbound traffic.  If traffic is congested, your other option is to pull through the gates located south of the building, turn left once inside and follow the road and either park behind (to the east) of the building or pull around and drop your child off at the back door.  As with any drop off situation, do not pull off until you see your child with the instructor or see that your child is safely inside.  We have cameras in the front, back and inside our building monitoring all activity to ensure the safest environment for your children.

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 text the studio phone at 580-318-2255 and let us know so your child does not worry.

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.

If you have a special visitor that would like to observe your child in class (Grandma and Grandpa, for example, are visiting), simply notify your child’s instructor in advance to request permission to observe so she can prepare the students for visitors.

COSTUMES & RECITAL FEE

Costumes for the recital will be ordered in December.  One costume is ordered for each class, except for Musical Theatre, Vocal Performance and Hip Hop.  At the time of enrollment, your child’s costume deposits are due.  If you have multiple deposits to pay, you may pay them at your convenience until November 1st.  We will measure students in November and order in December.  We will not know the balance of the costume until it is ordered.  Budget approx $100 for each costume.  We include tights with costumes, if needed, so that the class will match.  Shoes are not included in the cost of costumes.  You will receive your balance due is December and it will be charged in January with tuition.

A $25 recital fee is due in March for all dancers participating in the May recital.

STUDIO ONE RECITALS

Our recital marks the culmination of our dance year.  Our recital theme for 2019 is Under The Big Top!  Recital DVDs will be available for purchase from KEYB.  Recital T-shirts are sold with all the dancers’ names on the back as a momento of our big day!  We will start posting recital details when we resume classes after Christmas break.
