Class Etiquette & Rules

Please do your best to attend the class you are enrolled in each week. Curriculum in each class
is a building process so consistent attendance is CRITICAL to students; success. Students are
expected to be punctual so that we may utilize all our time efficiently.

Student Expectations:

  • All students are expected to come to class on time and prepared to work.

  •  Students should be attentive and obey group directives given by their instructor.(Instructors will kindly guide them in learning this skill).

  • Students should be kind and polite to their classmates and teachers. Being courteous and respectful sets the tone for learning.

  • Students are expected to remain in class for the duration of time and must receive permission from their instructor to leave for safety reasons. Permission will be granted at the discretion of their instructor with consideration made for younger dancers.

  • Food and drink are not allowed in the class nor is chewing gum.

  • ABSOLUTELY NO CELL PHONES (INCLUDING WATCHES) IN CLASS. Students should silence cell phones and leave them in their locker or student area at your own risk. 3’N Motion Dance Studio is not responsible for lost or stolen personal items.

  • Students are expected to keep their belongings neat and tidy and clean up after themselves while at the studio. This includes disposing of wrappers/papers and keeping their belongings/shoes in the cubbies or lockers provided. Staff will help assist our younger dancers, but parent support is appreciated to set this expectation of behavior.

  • 3’N Motion Dance Studio is not responsible for any personal belongings left in the campus. “Lost and Found” articles will be disposed of or donated after 30 days.

Parent Expectation

  • Parents are expected to be courteous while waiting and keep a low volume in the lobby as the noise is distracting to our dancers!

  • Parents may leave the campus while their child is in class.

  • Supervised siblings are welcome to wait in the lobby. We appreciate you helping to keep the waiting area neat and tidy.

  • Students should not be dropped off at the campus earlier than 5 minutes before class time and must be picked up promptly afterwards. The studio reserves the right to charge a $20 for every ten minutes you are late picking up your dancer.

  • 3’N Motion is not a daycare. If your child has more than an hour between classes, you will be required to pick up your student and bring them back for their next class. Alternatively, you can opt to pay a $20 supervision fee for them to stay instead of picking them up.

  • If late for class, please have your dancer wait until the end of music to enter the dance classrooms.

  • Observation is closed to parents on a regular basis, but observation days will be offered at times throughout the year. Please note that we do not offer observation windows or one-way mirrors in our classrooms.

  • Posting video clips of classes or choreography on social media is prohibited. Please respect our intellectual and artistic property, as well as the safety of other dancers.

  • Instructors are happy to speak with parents about concerns or give feedback but respectfully ask that you arrange to conference with them in the daytime hours, not during or after class time.

Dress Code

All Classes:
Our dress code is carefully crafted to ensure unity, discipline, and respect in the classroom. By following the dress code, instructors can see students’ silhouettes and make the utmost technical corrections. Similarly, abiding by the dress codes sets an attitude of respect, attentiveness, and courtesy for students, instructors, and the classroom. Uniforms create a sense of unity and remove distractions caused by different attire. Colorful and distracting dance attire can take the focus away from the instructor. Choreographing is also easier when dancers are similarly dressed. Lastly, our dress code ensures your dancer’s safety to avoid injuries (e.g., no dangling jewelry or chewing gum). If dancers are out of dress code, they will be asked to sit out of class.

  • Please do not wear street shoes on the studio floor; this ensures the safety of your dancer’s feet from outside debris.

  • No necklaces, rings, bracelets, or watches are allowed. Dancers can only wear stud earrings with nothing else on their necks, wrists, or fingers.

  • Underwear should not be worn with leotards and tights as tights serve the same purpose and are more comfortable for dancing.

Hands-On Correction

Hands-on corrections may be used by instructors to teach proper technique. These corrections are never invasive, punitive, or intimate in nature. Parents can opt-out of this form of instruction by notifying the studio director.

5

Class Placement

Students are initially placed in classes based on their age level and consideration of any experience. All faculty will then recommend placement for your dancer based on their trained evaluation. Faculty can recommend a change in placement if a student is not being challenged. Faculty does not have permission to discuss placement with parents. Only the artistic director will discuss any placement changes with parents. Students may be required to audition for placement in the future.


6

Observing Class

Observation week will be announced in advance via email, social media, newsletters, and the website. Parents who are observing either in the lobby or during designated observation weeks are asked to do so quietly and without distraction. Walking in and out of the studio, talking to

each other, talking to your dancer, or calling on the phone is distracting. Siblings will not be permitted during observation week(s).

Missed Classes & Withdrawal Policy

We will not adjust or prorate tuition for missed classes. Dancers are not eligible for make-up
classes due to holidays or inclement weather. Your tuition pays for your classroom spot. NO
REFUND will be given for MISSED CLASSES or early withdrawal.
The studio will be closed for National Holidays and follows Saint John County School District
calendar. Make-Up classes are optional and at the studio’s discretion.
No refunds or deductions are provided for missed classes (e.g., holidays).

Withdrawals/Termination From the Studio:

We are a year-round studio program, that runs from August-May:  All dancers are expected to complete their year long contract. An early termination fee equivalent to at least two-months tuition up to 6 month will be charged to early drop-outs.  All payments are non-refundable

Dropping or Changing Classes

  • Notification Deadline: To drop or change a class, parents/guardians must notify the dance studio by the 20th of the month preceding the desired change. For example, if a student wishes to drop or change a class for the month of March, the studio must be notified by February 20th.

  • Dropping a Class and Returning: If a student drops a class and later decides to return to the same class within the same dance season, an additional registration fee will be charged. This fee is intended to cover administrative costs associated with re-enrollment and class management.

  • Registered Classes Only: Students are only allowed to attend the classes for which they are officially registered. This policy ensures accurate class rosters, proper student-to-teacher ratios, and a safe learning environment for all participants. For example, if your child is registered for a Monday Primary Level 1 Ballet class, they will not be permitted to attend the Saturday Primary Level 1 Ballet class (unless you are registered for both classes).

  • February Deadline for Class Changes: Due to recital preparations, no class changes will bepermitted after the end of February. This restriction helps maintain consistency and ensures that students and instructors have sufficient time to prepare for the upcoming recital or performance. It is important for students or their parents/guardians to adhere to these policies to facilitate smooth operations within the dance studio and to provide a fair and organized experience for all participants.

Recital Information

Around March tuition you will notice, and additional recital fee billed along with your monthly tuition.

The recital fee is $125 for one dancer and $50 per sibling and includes a recital t-shirt for each dancer and a single digital download of the recital.

The recital fee also covers various expenses related to the recital production.

All fees associated with recital costumes and the recital itself are non-refundable.

Mandatory Rehearsals: Attendance at all scheduled rehearsals is mandatory for all participating dancers. Rehearsals are crucial for ensuring a successful and well-coordinated recital performance. It is important for dancers to commit to attending all rehearsals as outlined by the dance studio.

 

Account Status Requirement: To participate in the recital, a dancer's account must be current, meaning all outstanding balances for tuition, costumes, team balances (if applicable) and recital fees must be paid in full. This requirement helps maintain the financial stability of the dance studio and ensures a fair and equitable experience for all participants.

 

Non-Refundable Payments: Although you enroll for a full season, we understand that circumstances may arise where you need to drop/withdraw from a class. If you choose to discontinue services and no longer wish to be enrolled with 3’N Motion Dance Studio payments made toward tuition, costumes, or recital fees are non-refundable, regardless of a dancer's participation in the recital.

 

By adhering to these policies, dancers, parents/guardians, and the dance studio can work together to create a successful and enjoyable recital experience for everyone involved.
