BEHAVIOR

Dance class is education and FUN, however, an important part of class work is developing an attitude of discipline and respect for teachers and fellow students. We trust that following our classroom etiquette will provide an environment whereby classes at Dance Academy of Santa Rosa will be a pleasure for all concerned.
All dancers are to practice respect.  Students are not to be socializing in a disruptive manner during the class with other students.  Please come early or stay late to enjoy friends in the waiting area.  Please honor your teacher and fellow students by giving full attention and co-operation.  You will be advised if we feel any student is not well adjusted to the classroom environment for any reason over time.

  • Our viewing windows may be closed by the instructor if the students become distracted from class or by our viewing guests.
  • Students are to wear appropriate cover ups over dance attire when leaving the DASR lobby.
  • We reserve the right to dismiss any student who is acting disruptively from the classroom either temporarily or permanently.


ATTENDANCE
Students are encouraged to arrive 10 minutes before class begins. Any student arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be admitted to class.  For your safety and to receive full benefit from your class, please arrange for a make-up class if you expect to be very late.  

  • All students are encouraged not to leave the room once class has begun. Please allow for appropriate restroom use prior to class.  Very young children will be treated sensitively as the need arises. Preschool children may need a parent’s attention from time to time for various reasons including bathroom or behavior issues. Please do not leave the waiting room when very young children are in class without informing the office or having another parent responsible during your absence. We make every effort to have all children feel safe and cared for in a loving and inspiring learning environment.
  • There are no refunds for missed classes. However,Students are welcome to make up any missed classes in an equal or level lower than their current level.  PLEASE CALL IF YOU ARE GOING TO MISS CLASS. Please pick up your child at the end of their class.

CLASS PLACEMENT

Student placement in dance classes is first determined by age; however, your child's final placement is based on skill level.  The instructor will be aware to assess each student during the first month of class and if adjustments are needed, we will notify the parent.  The instructor has the final decision on the placement of the dance student.  Please note that it is quite common for students to repeat a  level.
