Studio and Dress Code Policies

  • At the Dance Attic we feel strongly that all styles of dance should be reinforced with ballet, therefore we require all dancers to take ballet or ballet technique.  Exceptions may be made only at the discretion of the staff.
  • Students must be on time to class.
  • Students must be appropriately dressed.  Leotards and tights must be worn to ballet. Hair must be up and no jewelry.  Dance pants may be worn in tap and jazz.  No t-shirts.  See this link for more details.
  • No food or drink in the studios.
  • Please stay up to date each week.  Important information will be posted on the front door so please be sure to walk your child in for each class.
  • Please make sure that your email address is current so that you can receive the monthly newsletter.

Costumes

  • All classes except technique classes will have a costume.
  • Costume costs are included in tuition.  Special costumes that exceed the costume allowance will result in extra charges.
  • Combo classes will only have two costumes.
  • Parents are responsible for costume alterations.

Competitions

  • Most classes will compete in one local competition.  The cost is currently estimated at $50 for each routine.  Once the competition is selected you will be provided a cost.
  • All combo classes will take one routine to competition.
  • Advanced ballet and technique classes will not compete at competition.

  • Recital will be on 1st or 2nd weekend in June.
  • Some classes may need to be rescheduled around competition and recital to accommodate extra practices.  We will try to give one week notice.

Seniors

All Seniors will be invited to participate in a piece choreographed for Seniors only that will be performed for the recital.  Seniors are not guaranteed a solo.  Those Seniors who are interested in performing a solo will be asked to audition.  TDA staff will then determine if the dancer will be invited to do a solo or not.  We want to be able to honor our Seniors, but with the growth that our studio has seen, we no longer have the staff to offer a solo for every Senior.  Thanks for your patience and understanding as we continue to strive to offer a dance program that benefits everyone!
