Member’s Only Area

Parents’ Role and Expectations

• Please have your child at Festival Hall on time and prepared for class.

• Dancers and instructors only allowed in the dance hall during class time. No parents, siblings, friends, etc. This can be very disruptive to the class. There will be specified class “viewing times” for parents and “bring a friend” days which will be at the discretion of the instructor. There are chairs in the lobby for parents and siblings waiting for dancers.

• There is no adult supervision before or after classes. Parents please be aware of this. Students who are not dancing must not be left unsupervised at the studio.

• It is the parents’ responsibility to arrange for pickup of students immediately following the students’ class.

• Please notify a member of the executive with any change in contact information. It is important that all members’ contact information is kept current so that we may be able to reach families regarding events, class cancellations, etc.

• In the event of last-minute class cancellations, i.e. inclement weather, we will send out notices via e-mail and/or Team Snap.

• It is the responsibility of the parents to make sure they are receiving newsletters and information distributed via e-mail and at Festival Hall (posted on the bulletin board and/or on the inner doors to the dance hall). Please check regularly, and don’t be afraid to ask questions if you’re not sure about something.

• Parents are encouraged to become actively involved and to communicate their comments, concerns, and ideas to make the dance experience an enjoyable one for both dancers and parents. Our annual general meeting is held in September or October and we strongly encourage all parents to attend to stay informed and offer any input, feedback, etc. We also hold executive meetings on the third Wednesday of each month which are also open to all parents/club members.

• It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure the instructor is informed as soon as possible about a student’s potential absence from a performance, i.e. competition, year-end concert, etc. This will give the instructor time to adjust the choreography if necessary.

• Inappropriate and/or rude behavior by students and/or parents will not be tolerated. Meetings with the instructor and/or the board should be done in private.
