ATTENDANCE

Attendance and promptness for class are also very important. Students are taught to work together and frequent absences or tardiness puts a lot of strain on the instructors as well as the other students. If you have to be absent for any reason please notify theschool of your absence and expected return.


CLASSES

Classes are graded and limited in size to afford every student the best possible education. All instructors are certified and have been chosen by founder Tina Socci to make your experience here fun and productive.


COURTESY

When waiting at the studio for your children to finish, please keep your other children away from the classrooms as they can distract the students and the instructors. We cannot be responsible for those children not participating in a class.


COMMUNICATION

We urge all parents to keep the lines of communication open with their child’s instructors. Do not hesitate to ask any questions you feel are important concerning your child/children, yourself or the studio policy. Please make an appointment to speak to your child’s instructor or Miss Carol. Do not interrupt classes or grab a teacher in the hallway.

Please check to see if your child is bringing home all letters and special instructions. We do our best to keep you informed about the studio happenings, but sometimes the children forget to pass these notices on to their parents. All papers will be sent home via email as well, so please check your emails regularly. If you don’t receive our email within the week, please email the studio at ladanseschool@hotmail.com, include your child/children’s name in the subject so we can add your email address to our records.


PICKUP and PARKING

We also ask that you keep the safety of your children in mind when dropping them off at the studio. Please pick up students promptly after their classes are finished. Any student left longer than 15 minutes will incur a child care fee of $10 per hour or part of. We are not responsible for students care after they are finished with classes.
