Thank you for your interest in INTUIT Dance. We hope your whole family will enjoy our studio. Please see our studio policies below. Starting Fall 2011 we ask that the dress code for shoes, clothing and hair be followed. Look forward to seeing you in class!
NO STREET SHOES ON THE DANCE FLOOR.
Ballet: Barefeet are preferred until the second semester of Ballet II and then a pair of ballet shoes should be purchased. Children need to feel their whole foot on the ground for proper body alignment that is why INTUIT waits to place children in shoes.
Contemporary/Dance for Children/Dancig Tots: Barefeet
Tap: Tap shoes
Jazz: Jazz shoes or barefeet/socks
Hip Hop: Sneakers that you do not wear to the studio
Ballet: Any color leotard/ballet skirt. Footless tights for children not in ballet shoes yet. Tights with feet in them if they are in second semester ballet II or above.
Jazz/Modern/Contemporary/Hip Hop: T-shirt and jazz pants or follow ballet dress code.
Dancing Tots/Dance for Children: Follow ballet dress code or t-shirt and jazz pants.
Teens and Adults: We leave it to you to dress appropriately for your style of dance. Dance clothing is preferred. Wear something that you feel good about, but instructors can see the line of your body in order to help you. Hip Hop dancers can not wear jeans – but anything you can move in.
Hair Needs to be pulled back so it does not interfere with skills the dancers are learning.
Watching Class / 3-4 yrs
Do not stay to watch your child -- but do come back the last 10 minutes. The teacher needs to establish a rapport with your child and this is easier without parents present. If there is a specific way you would like to see us handle a given situation, please continue to speak with the teacher.
Watching Class / 4 + yrs
If you stay to watch class please no talking.
Clothing is available for purchase at INTUIT or online [COMING SOON].
Class fees are non-refundable; balance transfer able to another family member or another class (provided space is available). If a substitute is needed to cover a dance class, a refund will not be given.
Plan to be on time for classes. The most important part of class is at the very beginning. This is when we center ourselves and prepare for learning. Injuries occur when you have not warmed-up sufficiently. If you are late, wait off to the side of the room until the teacher gestures for you to enter class, as this is proper dance etiquette. Continue to speak with me about individual circumstances as they come up and I will inform the teachers.
Please call if your child is going to miss class. This is especially important if the class is small so the teacher can plan appropriately.
Rehearsals for Recitals and Performances
It is important to attend all classes when preparing for a performance.
