STUDIO RULES
Attendance: Students should arrive 5-10 minutes early to prepare for class. If you are unable to make it to class, have to leave early, or attend late, please let Miss Jackie know ahead of time. Students who miss classes frequently will fall behind, develop a possible injury, and hold the class back. Poor attendance is unacceptable at TPSB.
 
Food/Drink: Please be mindful about what you bring to eat and drink at the studio. TPSB encourages healthy food choices such as: fruits, nuts, veggies, granola, yogurt, smoothies, juices, cold sandwiches. Water bottles are acceptable, but students may only drink them before class, after class, or if given a water break.
 
Street Shoes: Not permitted on the dance floor unless Miss Jackie gives permission to do so.
 
Gum: Strictly prohibited during class time. Gum is a choking hazard, and demonstrates disrespect in addition to poor dance etiquette.
 
Hygiene: Be mindful of your fellow students. Deodorant, baby powder for shoes, and hand sanitizer are great suggestions to store in your dance bag. On the other hand, strong perfumes and body spray are unacceptable, as some students are allergic to these items! Also, body lotion or oil will rub off on the dance studio floor, making it slippery. Please use sparingly.
 
Cleanliness: Keep the waiting room, lounge, and restroom clean at all times. No trash should be lying around.
 
Respect: Be kind to EVERYONE. Any student who is disruptive or disrespectful during class will have to sit out for the day. Bullying and stealing will NOT BE TOLERATED. Anyone who bullies or steals at TPSB will be expelled from TPSB with NO REFUND. NO EXCEPTIONS.
 
Literature: Check the waiting room and lounge each week for newsletters, updates, and schedules. Invoices will be e-mailed. Please keep Miss Jackie updated with new e-mail and mailing addresses.
 
Pointe Students: If you arrive late for class and miss the 1st exercise at the barre (Plies), you will not be allowed to wear your pointe shoes that day. This is for your safety, as there is an ORDER of ballet exercises performed at the barre to achieve proper warm-up. You must also attend an additional ballet class regularly. Students who miss ballet classes frequently will not be eligible to dance "en pointe."
(PLEASE NOTE - POINTE IS BALLET AND REQUIRES STRENGTH, EXPERIENCE, ADVANCED TERMINOLOGY, AND TECHNIQUE!!!  You cannot take pointe without taking at least 1 additional ballet class. NO EXCPETIONS.)
 


 

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

Dance classes will be canceled if bad, winter weather occurs. This is for your safety and the safety of others driving on slippery roads. TPSB follows Loyalsock Township School District's school cancellations and early dismissals. Please check the studio voicemail, the dance studio website, the TPSB Facebook page, or the TPSB Instagram page. TPSB may not be able to contact everyone on a snow day, so please utilize the options above. Please make arrangements with Miss Jackie for an appropriate make up class for you to attend. Your class must be made up within 2 weeks of the snow day and is your responsibility to re-schedule.
