Class Etiquette 

Dress appropriately and come prepared. Please mend ripped tights and wear leotards your level color.

No jewelry should be worn during class.

Your hair must be neatly pulled back and adequately secured.  Your hair also impacts your technique and can be a health and safety issue. Dancers who do not have their hair pulled back appropriately run the risk of creating bad habits, like unknowingly flicking their head to get their bangs out of their eyes, or not spotting because their hair hits them in the face when turning.

TAKE CORRECTION WELL

 

If an instructor corrects you, congratulations!

Take corrections with a positive mindset.

The goal is to see the students thrive and improve. It can be confusing for young dancers to understand that the only way to improve in ballet is to be corrected.

If you hear a correction being given to another student, pay attention! There is a good chance it applies to you as well!

KEEP IT CLEAN!

 

Respect the dance space.

A general rule, if you brought it in, take it out.

HAVE FUN!

 

Ultimately, this is YOUR class too, and you should be having a good time. Every instructor feels good when their students leave the room happy, so enjoy the process. Dance is an enriching experience, so be proud of your hard work, celebrate your accomplishments, and keep your eye on the continuing journey ahead.
