(new parents please contact us for your T-shirt's)

- Please arrive on time: Pick Up and Drop ( $5 penalty for any late pick up- any later than class end time, paid during pick up, increments of $5 every 15 mins– late arrivals is a loss of time of the student and we would want to ensure the child is able to use the entire 45mins of the class to its fullest)
- Balance payments are updated online, please keep up (late fees will incur an additional $15 fee)
- Classes shouldn't be missed unless really required
- Closed toe footwear with socks – kids cannot dance in boots or sandals (safety issue, can cause them to fall) (doesn't apply to EC LOCATION)
