Policies & Guidelines
Students are expected to attend every class. Progress in class depends upon regular and consistent participation. Talk to your instructor about progression and development in class. Please make an appointment with the instructor to set up a conference if necessary.
Classes will begin and end promptly at the scheduled time. Be dressed and ready for class before the scheduled start. If other classes are in progress, do not distract the students, and observe quietly. Students should arrive no more than 15 minutes before class and should remain no more than 15 minutes after class.
It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to accompany students to and from the studio. Footworks Dance Studio does not assume responsibility for students arriving early and who do not enter the studio. Nor does it accept responsibility for students who leave the studio after instruction when no one is waiting for them. Please wait until class has begun and be available to meet your student when class ends. To ensure safety, students should remain inside the building until a parent or guardian arrives.
Dance class cancellations will occur in the event of severe weather conditions and will not be made up. A voice message will be left on the Studio phone (407-877-2260) with detailed information on any changes, and email sent out as well posted on the website. If the Orange County Public Schools are closed due to bad weather, Footworks Dance Studio will also be closed.
Notify the studio of any changes in transportation arrangements. Whenever a student is going to be picked up by someone other than specified on the registration form, please inform a staff member. If a student has been given permission to bring themselves to class, please indicate that on the registration form.
If a class is missed, the student is entitled to a make-up class designated by the instructor. The make-up class must be taken within one month of the absence. Call the Studio to schedule the class. All classes must be paid for even if the class is not made up.
All students must wear required dance attire to class as listed in the class descriptions. Required attire for all males in classes include black tap and ballet, and tan jazz shoes, black shorts, and white tee shirt. Required attire can be purchased at Footworks Dance Studio for your convenience. Baggy shirts, jeans, midriffs, and school or play clothes and street shoes are not allowed in class. All students’ hair must be pulled off the face. Limited or no jewelry should be worn. Students may not eat in classrooms. Smoking and gum chewing are not permitted at Footworks Dance Studio.
