Observers are encouraged to watch class through our viewing windows. Observers are NOT allowed to enter the classroom at any time, unless using the restroom. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO COMMUNICATE THROUGH THE WINDOW WITH YOUR STUDENT. This disrupts the entire class and will result in asking you to leave this room.
You will have to walk through the dance/gym studio to get to the restroom. Please do so around the edges of the room, and not directly through the class. Also please do not talk to the students or disrupt the class if you need to use the restroom.
We have a variety of toys and activities for you kids to do while their siblings are in class. Please be sure that all toys, food, drinks, etc. are properly put away, before you leave! If your child plays and does not clean up, he/she will be banned from playing the following week. If this happens multiple times, they will be banned indefinitely. Thank you for helping us keep this area safe and clean for all children to play.
You Are Responsible
Any damage to studio property or furnishings will be billed to the responsible parties involved. Any parents or students that do not agree with this policy will be dismissed from the studio effective immediately.
Substitutes & Make-up Classes
In the event that your instructor is ill or has to miss class, we will do our best provide a substitute for their class. If we are unable to find a suitable substitute, we will cancel class and schedule a make-up class for you. In the event that we have to cancel classes due to inclement weather, a power outage, or some other event out of our control, a make-up class will also be rescheduled. In the event of inclement weather, please stay aware of Facebook, calls, texts, and/or email for closing notices. We will make every effort to contact you before the scheduled class.

Holidays & School Breaks
Although we follow a similar holiday schedule to Aiken County schools, we DO NOT FOLLOW IT FOR ALL HOLIDAYS/BREAKS. Make sure to mark down our holidays and breaks which are available under dates to remember tab.
Each summer, we offer an audition for dancers interested in joining our competition teams. For dancers under the age of eight, teachers will recommend them if they feel they are ready to pursue competitive status. Please see the front desk or your instructor if you are interested in our competition program and they will answer any questions you may have.
Each year Wes Wilson, from Wilson Studio, comes in to our studio to photograph the Spring performance’s group dance photos and optional individual photos. Photos are taken all week during regular class times. There is no charge to be in our group photos, so we ask that all participate. These group photos will be put in our recital program. Purchasing individual shots is completely optional. Payment is due at the time the photos are taken. No one is permitted to take pictures on your own device using the background or props!
Info coming soon…
