Supervision

Adult supervision ends at the end of each class. Students waiting for their parents past the class time will be instructed for pick up in our common area. Children are the responsibility of the parents upon the conclusion of class(es).

Attendance/Lateness

Attendance will be taken each week.  Please make an effort to bring your child to class every week in a timely manner.  Since we are working toward a performance, every class is valuable for building your child’s knowledge of dance and covering choreography for the showcase. We want every child to feel confident and prepared for the performance, so regular attendance is essential.

If kids are more than 10 minutes late for the class, they will have to sit an observe the class until the time when the teacher says it is appropriate to join. Please note that this is not to punish the child, but rather, it is to keep the class productive and to implement etiquette for the kids.  We have high goals for the kids and would like to make the most of both the students' and teacher’s time

We do understand that conflicts arise, so if you know in advance that your child will be absent, please notify the studio or tell the teacher in person so they can better plan for that week’s instruction. Every child is allowed two excused absences.  As we get closer to the show date in June, please avoid missing class as one student’s absence adversely affects the whole group.

Level Placement

Students are placed according to their age.  They should meet the minimum age range listed.  However, students are permitted to place into other levels according to their dance ability if permitted to do so by the teacher of the course.  In this case, written consent must be given by the parent. 

For assistance in placement of your child/youth, please call 212-924-5694 or email pmthouseofdance@aol.com.
