Classroom Etiquette:

To keep order in the classroom and maintain a professional atmosphere, dancers should be aware of the rules and be on their best behavior at all times.

General Rules:

  • Please, no gum chewing, food, or beverages in MSDA dance studios.
  • Dancers must follow the dress code at all times. Remove all jewelry before class and have hair up securely out of face and off the neck. Any dancer with improper footwear or dress attire will be asked not to participate for safety reasons.
  • Tardiness: If a student misses any part of warm up he/she will be asked not to participate for safety reasons. He/she must sit and watch the remainder of class.
  • Performances & Costumes: registration fees, performance fees, costume fees, and 1 showcase DVD per student are included in the tuition of performing classes.
Waiting Area:
  • When utilizing our waiting area, we ask that you be respectful toward all dancers and patrons by keeping conversations at an appropriate volume.
