ATTIRE

Your choice of dance outfit is suitable for most combination classes. We will fit you in the appropriate shoe for your class level. PATENT LEATHER TAP SHOES AND BALLET SLIPPERS WITH STIFF SOLES ARE NOT ACCEPETABLE. Ballet classes require a black leotard and ponytails must be worn in a secure and neat bun. Appropriate tights are required for class photographs, as well as our recital. TEE-shirts may not be worn as a cover-up during class.

ATTENDANCE AND PROMPTNESS

Punctuality is stressed. The lesson should be learned in its entirety. The most important part of the lesson often occurs in the first 10 minutes. Prompt regular attendance is very important to performance. Attendance is kept and the teacher reserves the right to remove a student for excessive absences.

SNOW & INCLEMENT WEATHER

When DARE COUNTY SCHOOLS close due to bad weather, the studio will be closed that day also. ALWAYS CALL TO CONFIRM IF YOUR CLASS WILL BE HELD.

RECITAL

Our recital is usually held the first or second Saturday in June at First Flight High School Auditorium. Students are billed individually for each costume. A $40.00 deposit is due on each costume by December 10th. Invoices will be available by February 10th. Your remaining balance is due March 10th.
