not complete until both an add/drop form and final penalty payment
of 1/2 month tuition has been received. Any dancer who has

Our student's safety is of the utmost
importance. For the safety of everyone, our younger dancers will
require an adult to come in to pick up their dancer. They
will not be allowed to exit the building without an adult.
If they are to go home with someone other than the person who
dropped them off, please let the instructor or office manager know
when they are dropped off. Parents should arrive to pick up
their dancer BEFORE the class ends. Students should be
picked up on time and should not be left in the lobby. All
children, including siblings, must be accompanied by an adult or
guardian. When students are not in dance class they are the
responsibility of the parent or guardian.
All students should be respectful of the
studio, other dancers, other's belongings, and dance classes that
are in progress. It is our desire to create a positive and
safe environment for the students to grow. Unruly or
disrespectful behavior, inappropriate comments, foul language, or
attitudes are unacceptable. British Ballet Academy reserves
the right to dismiss dancers from class due to inappropriate
behavior. Upon dismissal from class a verbal warning will be
issued. Once a second warning is issued the parents will be
notified. If a dancer is disrespectful of the class or the
instructor, or refuses to participate adequately, they will be
asked to sit down until they decide they are ready. NO cell phones
or electronic devices will be allowed during a class. If
cell phones are brought in, they must be silenced.
PLEASE be on time so there is no
disruption to the class. Attendance will be monitored each month.
If a dancer is going to be absent, please let the studio know as
soon as possible. This allows time for each instructor to prepare
in advance. Remember that good attendance is imperative, as
absences and tardiness can hold back the entire class. Please make
every effort to have your child attend and be on time to every
