In the Waiting Rooms

Quiet Cell Phones

Cell phones must be on the vibrate mode. Most guest teachers prefer solitude and you may observe the final 15 minutes of their classes. Guest musicians prefer to have the room silent; please respect their time and talent.

Food and Drink

  • Although food and beverages are permitted in the studio, please keep an eye on small children and alert the staff if an accident happens.

  • We also expect our students to clean up and discard any food or drink items while at the studio.

  • WDA has gone Green – Please Recycle!

Allergy Foods

  • Please refrain from bringing any products containing peanuts into the studio as several dancers have severe allergies.

Dance Floor

  • The dance floor is strictly for dancers and teachers. Please do not allow your children to draw/color on the floor, and keep all toys in the carpeted area.

Quiet Please

  • Please keep all necessary conversation to a minimum during classes

No Markers

  • For those parent with small children. Please do not bring markers of any kind into the studio.

Lost & Found

  • We donate to good will every two weeks. Please check for lost items.

Being Prepared for Class

Be Early

  • All dancers should be on time or early for their class so they are warmed up and ready to dance. Those that are more than 10 minutes late, will be asked to watch class.

What to Wear

  • Dancers must be in dress code leotard and pink tights unless otherwise arranged by the studio or instructor. Those not prepared will be required to

    watch class.

    • Purchase these items at All That Jazz.

    • Summer classes require pink tights; dress code leotard not required.

    • Hair should be pulled back in a neat, tidy bun.

    • Short hair must also be pulled back off the face.

    • Hair ornaments should be kept to a minimum.

Studio Etiquette

  • Professional behavior must be observed while not in the studio so that observers may appreciate class and dancers in studio are not disrupted

  • Dance bags and personal items should be kept against the wall or on a wall hook

  • Respect the studio and the equipment

  • How students present themselves is a direct reflection of the studio. This is

    particularly true when interacting with other members of the dance profession. Teachers and guests should be treated with respect.

  • Using social media to “friend” or contact teachers is not permitted. Teachers value their privacy and all interactions should be strictly professional. Be aware that teachers who violate this policy are subject to dismissal.
