Studio Policies

CLASSROOM ETIQUETTE

We ask that everyone is respectful.  Be respectful of the instructors, dancers, fellow patrons and facility.  Dancers should give their full attention and cooperation in class in order for everyone to be able to get the most benefit out of their classes.  Shared spaces outside of the dance room should remain peaceful and quiet so as to not distract the dancers or other activities going on within the building.  

NO EATING OR CHEWING GUM.

 

All Pre-Primary, Primary or older students with special needs must have a caregiver present at all times. These children may need a caregiver’s attention from time to time for various reasons including bathroom or behavior issues. Please do not leave the lobby when children are in class without having another adult responsible during your absence. 

We request that students follow our dress code which can be found on our website.  Dancers who are not dressed according to our dress code may be asked to go and change based on the teacher’s discretion.

SAFE SPACE POLICY

In an effort to the keep The Institution of Dance Arts a safe space for all our dancers, instructors, and families, we ask that no one use abusive or prejudicial language that discriminates against groups or individuals on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, race, color, ethnicity, nationality, class, religion, age, mental or physical disability, body type or size.  

 

OTHER

Class size and student placement will be left to the sole discretion of management.  Instructors will place students in classes that will best provide a positive learning environment for the student.  Instructors will take ability, age, and experience into consideration.
