Uniform Policy  

All students must follow the new uniform policy in all classes effective with the 2021-2022 season. Our uniform is designed to be a safe and practical outfit for your child to dance in. Having a dress code cuts down on distractions in the classroom, allows the teacher to see a dancers alignment and posture in order to make corrections, and creates a cohesive bond between the group. 

If you are in 2 different level classes (ie: level 2 for Ballet and level 3 for Acro), you should wear the lower level uniform color until you are at the highest level for all classes. 

 

Parking

Our parking lot is ONE-WAY.  The traffic pattern was designed for safety & flow.  Please use caution and follow the signs and arrows while driving through our parking area.  Do not stop and block the drive paths.  

  

Closures, Missed & Make-Up Classes

For closures due to inclement weather, pandemic or otherwise,  please call the studio (610-360-4335), or check your email, or visit WFMZ.com, if you are uncertain whether or not we are open.  Closures: If more than 2 of any class is cancelled, any subsequent classes will be made up at a later date.  Missed Classes: Tuition will not be adjusted or credited for missed classes.  You may make up 2 classes per season.  If you plan to discontinue dance lessons, one month's notice is in writing required for cancellation or you will be responsible for any and all charges for all classes until notification is received.   

Injury Policy

Communication with the instructor and studio owner/office manager is very important.  If a dancer is injured during class or outside of class, please let the instructor know as soon as possible, so that we can understand the injury and any necessary modifications.  If a student is unable to fully participate in class  due to an injury, she/he is invited to observe the class or to participate with modifications to the movement, as to not create more injury. Students must present a doctor's note with diagnosis and prognosis of an injury, if unable to participate in class for more than one week.  A doctor's release for full participation must be presented for all concussions and extensive injuries.  Regular tuition payments  are due for all  injured students observing classes.  Unfortunately, placement cannot be held for injured students who cannot participate or observe their classes.
