CODE OF CONDUCT

No talking unless you have a question for the teacher.

Disruptive and disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.

Bad behavior will result with the student being expelled from the dance program.

 

Do not chew gum, eat, or drink during class. Do not leave the class to get a drink of water unless authorized by the teacher.

Do not arrive late. If you do, you need to check with the teacher to see if it’s okay for you to join or if they prefer that you just observe class.

If you have an injury prior to class, let the teacher know that you may not do everything full out.

 

If you get injured during class (i.e pull a muscle) let the teacher know. Get ice, if possible, and watch the rest of class from the sideline.

Do your best and have a positive attitude.

It is very important for students to maintain great personal hygiene. Students will be worked very hard and it’s vital for everyone to stay fresh.
