PICK UP AND DROP OFF POLICIES:
Because we do not have a large waiting area available or a dressing room, we would like to ask that the parents drop off and pick up your dancer on time. Students must wait inside the building to be picked up. We can only be responsible for children DURING their class times, NOT BEFORE OR AFTER CLASS. Do not leave young dancers unattended in the dance studio. Please wait with your child before class begins. Class begins when the teacher calls the dancers on to the dance floor.

NOTE:
If your dancer has a break between classes, the studio & teachers are not responsible for your dancer. We do not have a supervised space for them to wait. We are only responsible for your dancers during their class time. Please be sure to make arrangements to have them picked up between classes.

STUDIOS:
For safety reasons, no student may enter a dance room without an instructor present. We are not responsible for unsupervised children. Empty dance rooms are not play rooms. It is not safe for your child to horseplay in the studio. No one is allowed in a dance room without an instructor's supervision.

LOST AND FOUND:
We are not responsible for lost or solen items. Please keep your belongings in your dance bag and your valuables at home. Items left in the studios will be collected at the end of the day and placed in the lost and found bins. Please check these often. We encourage all students to label their shoes, tights, etc., to insure that the proper items are recovered.

PARENT OBSERVATION:
It is distracting to the dancers to have parents watching and talking during class. Therefore, we ask that parents come back 10 minutes early to watch and pick them up at the end of each class. This is especially important with young dancers.

HOME PRACTICE:
We strongly suggest setting up a daily home practice time of 15-20 minutes for each class. All of the younger students need parent supervision and support during this practice time. The most important home practice day is the first day after your lesson. Encouraging home practice will ensure your dancer is getting the most out of their classes.
 
RECITAL COSTUME FEE:
We will be ordering recital costumes from catalogs again this year. Ballet costumes will be collected by October 1 and all other class costumes will be collected by November 1. They run $50 - $75 per costume.
 
WATER & RESTROOM VISITS:
Allegro recognizes that water intake is a crucial element to athletic activity and we encourage students to make sure they are drinking a sufficient amount. However, visits to the restroom during class disrupt the class and cause the student to miss valuable instruction time. Therefore, we ask that your dancer get a drink of water and use the bathroom before class. Water bottles are allowed but must be kept with the student’s possessions and away from the barres and dance floor. Please have your young dancer use the restroom before they come to class.
 
BEHAVIOR/TALKING:
Students are expected to treat Allegro staff with respect and a positive attitude. There is to be no talking during class. Excessive talking is distracting and disrespectful to teachers and classmates.
 
STUDIO ETIQUETTE:
Food, gum, and drinks (except water) are not allowed in any of the studios. Students are responsible for the disposal of their garbage. NO STREET SHOES are allowed onto the Marley dance floors. Dance shoes should NEVER be worn outside where dirt and rocks would be brought onto the Marley. Dance shoes are to be worn inside only! Barres are not to be hung or sat on as they might break or cause injury. Mirrors are breakable and easily smudged; they are not to be touched. Students should not sit down to “rest” during dance classes. This causes the muscles to cool down and may result in injury by resuming exercise when cold.
   
COMMUNICATION:
We will send all our newsletters, reminders and announcements via email. Please let us know ASAP if you do not receive any of our emails. Please let us know if you change your address so we can update our files. Please be sure to read the bulletin boards in the waiting area carefully. This is an important resource for students and parents. Check our website www.allegrodancer.com often for newsletters, time changes, rehearsals and important notices.
