Studio Rules for Adults

For Parents and Adult Students

  • Please check your emails, our Facebook page, and the KBA website for information and announcements about schedule changes, weather closings, and upcoming events.

  • Please put the student’s name in all dance shoes, bags, and clothes.

  • Students should arrive 10 minutes before class so your child can prepare for class and use the restroom if needed.

  • All students must follow the KBA dress code policy.

  • Dance shoes should not be worn outside of the building.

  • We kindly ask that you keep your child home if he or she is sick.

  • Contact the studio if your child will be missing class. Email miss.emily@kba.dance / message us on Facebook / call studio 570-582-9100.

  • No child will be allowed to leave with anyone other than a parent unless we have prior notice from the parent that signed the child up for classes.

  • Students should be picked up promptly after class. Call the studio if you will be more than 5 minutes late. (570-582-9100)

  • Please do not leave any young children unattended in the waiting area, restroom or hallway.

For Students taking class

For Students attending class

  • Sign in at the office when you arrive.

  • Use restrooms before class to avoid disruptions.

  • All students should arrive 10 min early in their assigned classroom attire with their hair properly secured and dance shoes on.

  • All students must follow the KBA dress code policy.

  • Please wait quietly in the hallway near the studio. If you must talk, stay in the office/waiting area.

  • No jewelry may be worn to class other than small earrings.

  • Teachers reserve the right to dismiss any student from class who continuously disrupts. A parent/teacher conference must take place before a “dismissed student” may return to class, and the student will be allowed to attend make-up classes.

  • A student arriving more than 10 minutes late may have to observe class. This is not a punishment but is done to avoid injury from not properly warming up. A make-up class can be taken.

Studio Etiquette

Expected behavior in class

  • Leave your coat and shoes in the cubby outside the studio.

  • Please use the hand sanitizer before class and as needed during class.

  • No climbing, lounging, or hanging on the ballet barre.

  • Please do not touch the mirrors. They are not glass and can puncture or crack if poked.

  • Cell phones must be silenced and remain untouched during class.

  • No food or gum is permitted in the studio. Only water with a closable lid.

  • Eyes and attention must always be on the teacher. Talking or leaving class before it is over is not acceptable.

  • Everyone will get corrections. Be appreciative of corrections as they help you improve. Students will progress only as well as they can when they take corrections and use them.

  • Students show respect for others by: keeping their hands to themselves during class, waiting quietly for others to have a turn, waiting until the music is finished before entering the classroom if they are late to class, and talking only when spoken to by the instructor (or asking a question).

  • Any student who repeatedly disrupts the class will be dismissed from class that day. This could result in a parent/teacher conference with the student.

  • If a student needs to leave early, he/she must ask the teacher’s permission before class begins. Please leave discreetly so as not to disrupt class. 

  • Every class ends with clapping. You are thanking the teacher, showing respect for yourself and fellow students, and letting people outside the studio know the class is over.
