Guidelines for Beginners Dance Students and Parents

 

1) Enrollment for dance classes for the school year is for a 10 month period, beginning the middle of August  through the end of May.  Class sizes are limited so early enrollment is recommended.

2) Tuition is based on the 10 month schedule and may be paid in monthly installments. There is an annual non-refundable enrollment fee of  $40 per student / $75 family rate. All tuition and recital fees are non-refundable. Tuition is due the 1st day of each month, paid in advance & past due the 10th, after which a late fee of $15 is due.

3) Parking: Parents may park in the curved school drive and along Rebecca Lane. The apartment complex across from the school  has requested no parking in their parking lot or in front of their mail boxes. Note: the curved drive is for one lane parking only - it is not wide enough to use as a passing lane.

4)  The observation window blinds will be opened only on designated Observation Days.  Family and friends are encouraged to attend  and observe their dancer’s progress!  Dates for Observation Days are posted on the School Calendar. .

5) Make up Classes:  Students are allowed to take make up for classes missed in the event of illness and family emergencies within a one month period of the missed class.  No make-up classes are allowed after April 1 as classes are preparing for the Recital.

6) All students must be properly dressed for every class. For girls, a solid colored leotard, ballet pink tights (footed) and pink ballet shoes must be worn for every class. Hair must be tidy and in a bun.  Boys may wear bike shorts or black tights, white t-shirt and black or white ballet shoes.  Ballet shoes must have elastic sewn on & strings trimmed off, and the dancer’s name written inside.

7) Students must be on time to class. It is a good rule to arrive at least 10 minutes before class.  If a student is late for any reason, and misses part of the warm-up at the barre, he/she may be asked to sit and watch the class.  This is not punishment, but a safety precaution to avoid possible injury.

8) Students are to wait inside the studio for their ride after class. As a safety measure, young students  are not allowed to leave the building without being accompanied by an adult. Parents are to pick up students  immediately after class.  If an emergency occurs in which you must be late to pick up your child, please call to notify the school.  

19)  Ballet School notices and announcements will be sent via e-mail to parents and students.  Please make sure that your working e-mail address is always made known to the school so that you can be kept up to date on school news & announcements.  Birthday & holiday cards are sent via www.jacquielawson.com. Please make sure to check for your child's birthday e-card!

 10)   Bad Weather: Anytime that Norman Public Schools are let out due to bad weather, dance classes will not be held. There are exceptions & the school will notify all students via e-mail if this is the case.  If the weather is treacherous due to ice, snow, tornado, etc after public school hours, please do what is best for your safety & stay at home in the event of ongoing and potentially  hazardous conditions. 

11) Students are to act with respect and courtesy toward their teacher and other students. Students are expected to act respectfully toward all school property, inside and out of the ballet studio. Students are to talk quietly while waiting for their class to begin. Absolutely no running or dancing in the waiting area is allowed.

12) Parents & siblings in waiting area should be aware that all sounds echo loudly into the ballet room. Siblings must be accompanied by a parent at all items and be reminded of respectful behavior toward school books and toys and all school property inside & out.

13)  Holidays:  Norman Public Schools have numerous holidays and professional days, etc.  The ballet school will have classes on all of these days except those holidays noted in the school calendar. 

14)  No food or drink is allowed in the ballet studio except for bottled water.

15) The annual Spring Recital is held in May at the Nancy O'Brian Center for the Performing Arts. This performance is the highlight of the year for all of the young dancers. Costumes are designed to be worn in class after the event with detachable tutus/skirts that may be worn on "Tutu/Skirt Day" throughout the year. See Tuition & Recital Fees page for details.

16)  Summer Dance Camps & Intensive Workshops are held during June &  July.
