*Parents, we need your help with ballet slippers. Please triple or quadruple knot the elastic ties at the front of ballet slippers and either cut the laces to about an inch and tuck them into the shoe, or tie an additional triple knot bow. Thank you!
Communication – Our primary method of communication is email. If you have not received an email from us this year, please check with our front office staff or call to update your information.
Weather Cancellations – Our policy is to close the studio when Jefferson County Schools are closed. If schools are open and road conditions are worsening throughout the day, we may close and will update our Facebook page and email classes.
Attendance/Absences – Good attendance is a vital part of any educational process and students with high attendance (and their peers) learn more throughout the year. If your child misses a class, s/he is welcome to attend a make-up class with any other class in the same age range.
