Attendance

Good attendance is a must in order to fully benefit from class each week.  Please make it a point to be there and be on time. Each class begins with a warm up and it is crucial the student does not miss warming up to avoid injury.

 

 

Students are not to be dropped off more than 10 minutes before their class begins and should be picked up within 10 minutes of their class ending.  Belle Studio LLC cannot guarantee supervision of your child(ren) outside of this time frame.

 

 

If you wish to drop a class, we only ask you give us notice before the end of the month, so we can extend an invitation to the next student on the waiting list.  No refunds will be issued for any unattended classes.

 
Calendar

Discipline

Belle Studio is an encouraging and uplifting environment, rule breaking or any disrespectful or disruptive behavior will be dealt with by removing the student from the dance room and the student needing to be picked up immediately. We are very big on communication and will work with the parents in trying to find the cause and a solution to the issue.

 

Visitors

We love parent involvement, but we do ask that you view from the television in the lobby to avoid interrupting or distracting the class. We want every minute of class to count and even the smallest interruption can take precious time to recover from.
