Student Requirements For Dance Instruction
PDT is first and foremost a technique driven school of dance. As such, student and parents must understand and comply with the following.
- Attention: Students will be attentive to dance instruction at all time while in class.
- Hard Work: Students are expected to work to their ability. Barring a medical reason, students should plan to work hard the whole of class time.
- Respect: At all times students will show the upmost respect for teacher, fellow students, and each other.
- Attendance: PDT respects that many of our students have outside the studio obligations. However, there is no pro-rating classes do to missed attendance. Furthermore, if lack of attendance impedes the students learning or becomes a disruption to the class, the studio director may move said student to a lower level class, remove them from recital, and/or remove the student from the class.
- Attire: Students not wearing proper attire may be asked to leave class until such time that they have proper attire.
- Studio Behavior: It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to monitor the behavior and activities of students outside of class time. Disruptive students in the lobby, office, or changing area may be asked to leave the studio.
- Overall High Standards: You can expect the best from us when it comes to your dance education. Likewise, we expect your best. For more information, please request our policies and procedures handbook.
