Classroom Behavior

What We Expect - Dress and Timeliness

We expect each student to arrive to classes on time, dressed in attire appropriate for that specific class. This includes correct footwear, and hair already in place.

Arriving on time and fully ready enables our teachers to maximize the full class time with the fewest disruptions.

What We Expect - Behavior in the Classroom

Respect is a core value of our studio. This includes respect for the building and classroom tools, respect for each other, and respect for our teachers. Arriving prepared is part of that respect for the busy schedule of our classes.

We have a zero-tolerance policy for bullying and harassment. Students involved may be dismissed from class and parents/guardians will be informed. We will work with the students and their parents whenever possible to find a peaceable solution going forward.

Our teachers work hard to be fair and kind, arriving prepared to every lesson. We expect our students to treat their teachers with respect, and adhere to class rules. If a student or parent takes issue with a rule or class requirement, we encourage you to address it with the teacher as soon as possible. We will always be happy to address any concerns, and we prioritize our students having the best possible learning environment.

Our Promise to You

We commit to being prepared for each class, to being consistent and fair in our ​behavior towards students, and in finding solutions to any problems that may arise. Fun and Educational classes are maintained when both teachers and students behave respectfully, and we continue to strive to communicate in an effective and timely manner.
