CLASS GOALS AND POLICY: Motto: Praise God through Dance. We are Christian in faith and will often refer to and praise Jesus during our classes. Classes are structured to have fun! However, students are asked to listen and pay attention, practice at home and have an “I’ll try” attitude. Summer session is more casual and relaxed than regular season classes. They are designed to give the student a “taste” of the classes.
Payment must be made prior to the camp starting. Payment methods accepted: credit card online through the parent portal, paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org, venmo @Heather-Reed-180, cash or check payable to Heather’s Dance Company. If not paid electronically, the student must hand the instructor the payment before class starts.
Dress Code and Shoes: The summer session is more relaxed so leotards are recommended but not required. The student should wear comfortable clothing that they can move around easily in. Shorts and tank tops or tshirts are fine. (Please remember that modesty must be maintained, breasts, belly and bottom must be covered at all times) (since they will be upside down, Tumblers MUST wear a leotard or one piece swimsuit)
Shoes: Tap dancers must have tap shoes but see if the studio has some to borrow before buying new, Hip Hop classes should wear a clean sneaker or jazz shoe, Ballet classes should have a soft ballet shoe or jazz shoe, Lyrical/Contemporary classes should have PAWs or bare feet, Tumbling classes should have tumbling shoes or bare feet.
Hair should be back away from the face: pony tails, headbands, etc.
OBSERVERS: To limit exposure due to COVID, the studio is not allowing observers in the studio this summer. Students can be brought into the studio by the parent, but the parent must vacate the studio before the class starts. There is NO Waiting in the studio this summer.
ENTRANCE: The front door entrance is the only entrance that should be used this summer. To minimize surface contacts that need to be sanitized between classes, the back door and the hallway will remain closed. Students will need to sanitize their hands before entering the studio each time.
MASKS: Masks are not required. We do not feel that it is healthy to wear a mask while dancing, especially for the intermediate or advanced classes, However, the studio will comply with your family policy on mask wearing. Please indicate to the instructor if you wish for your student to wear their mask the entire class and wish it to be enforced. Also NOTE: If/When the instructor needs to spot or touch your student (or be in their space) she WILL wear a mask.
FORMATION AND 6’ POLICY: All summer classes this season are designed to minimize exposure to others. Students will remain in their 6×6’ taped off square with only minimal (but possibly some) across the floor movement. Tumblers will have spaced x’s on the floor to assist with distancing while waiting for their turn across the tumbling mat.
CLASS SIZED: Class sizes are limited to 6 (ages 7 and under) or 8 (older classes) student per class at the most.
