PROPER CONDUCT IS REQUIRED BY ALL STUDENTS:
While in class, each student is expected to show respect for the instructor and the other members of the class. Our students are taught respect because we show them respect. We expect each student to participate fully during class. However, no student is expected to do any more than what he/she is capable of doing.
A dance education is an excellent way to build discipline and character. The key element to achieve this goal is to see each student as individually important, while at the same time seeing him/her as important to the class as a whole. If a problem arises regarding a student's behavior, the instructor will speak to the student and parent before he/she disturbs his/her progress in the program.
PROPER DRESS REQUIRED:
The student is expected to dress according to the Dance Lakewood Unifrom requirements for each class. The student is informed of the Dress Code Requirements at Registration. Hairstyle is part of the dress code. Uniform cover-ups can be purchased at the studio.
SNOW DAY CLOSINGS:
Dance Lakewood Snow Day Closing Policy will follow the Lakewood City School District in snow day closings. Dance Lakewood's Holiday Closing Policy is posted in advance at the beginning of each year. We do not follow school holiday closing schedules. All closings and announcements can be obtained by checking on our website or the schedule handout from the office.
MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY:
A schedule of make-up classes is available at the office. If a student misses a class, it can be made up within one month. Attendance is taken during each class.
STUDENT PROMOTION POLICY:
All students are eligible for promotion to another class level if the instructor recommends it and the parent is in agreement.
The student is responsible for withdrawing from the program by notifying Dance Lakewood in writing or by e-mail. The class fee payment for any month is non-refundable once the month is in session.
Deposits placed on recital or competition costume(s) are non-refundable. Recital or competition costume(s) paid in full may be picked up by the parent/student once they sign a form and the costume(s) have arrived at the studio. Any costume not picked up with-in 2 months of notice will be forfeited and become property of Dance Lakewood.
