Parents and teachers may look at a child’s learning from different perspectives. However, they share a common goal: to assure that every child receives the best possible training, physically, mentally and educationally. Mutual respect between our faculty and our dancers’ parents provides the children with the ultimate care and education.


  • Encourage your child and express your pride in their efforts and accomplishments. 
  • Make sure your child arrives ten minutes prior to the start of his/her class and that he/she attend all scheduled lessons and/or rehearsals.  Missing class can be discouraging when the child returns to class; often they have a hard time catching up, especially with choreography.  They can become frustrated and anxious when they can’t keep up.
  • Encourage your child to practice at home, especially when it comes to choreography or new material. A student who retains the choreography or movement from week to week is more confident and enjoys the dance experience more.
  • Talk with your child about what they learned at dance class; encourage them to show you the new things they were taught that day.
  • Show respect for your child’s dance teacher, especially when it comes to disciplinary action. Feel free to call the school for a parent-teacher meeting anytime you have a question concerning discipline.
  • Avoid judgmental statements concerning other parents and students at the school.
  • Be proud to be a non-gossip parent; spreading gossip or rumors creates a downbeat atmosphere and influences negativity both in and out of the classroom.
  • Promptness with tuition, costume payments and other funds due should be made prior or on due dates. In turn the studio is able to meet its’ financial commitments on time with out late or finance charges.

As a parent, the financial support of your student is important, but of equal – perhaps even greater – value is your emotional support.  Encourage your child to be the best that he/she can be without regard to what others may achieve.  Dance is an individual art form; each child needs to achieve at a pace that’s comfortable for him/her. No two students will progress at the same rate, even if they experience the exact same training.  It’s important to encourage the children to focus on themselves, give their all, and be satisfied with their own accomplishments.
