Dance Happens, Inc. Community Dancers Expectations
Attendance and Time Commitment
Each dancer will be charged a mandatory $150 costume fee for each session (session I and session II). All costumes purchases will be your property. A payment plan will be available.
To help keep the low cost of our classes we ask all Dance Happens members to participate in all fundraisers. Dance Happens, Inc. is not a public rec program. Thus all money raised through fundraising will keep the program running and ideally to expand it as well.
Students will not be allowed to participate if they are not wearing the required uniform
No jewelry allowed except stud earrings
Hair must be pulled off of face and neck
Girls may wear black dance shorts over leotard and tights
Please keep in mind that Dance Happens cannot and will not tolerate misbehavior. Students must exert a great deal of self-discipline and learn to abide by all rules and regulations. The expected behaviors are set by the Board, founder, and staff. Our expectations include but are not limited to: respect towards other students, teachers, and Dance Happens property; no fighting, rough play, or disruption of the learning environment; no inappropriate language; and no use of cell phones.
Our policies will be maintained in the following way:
For Daily Offenses
If a child is not respectful of one or more of the rules the following applies:
If your child is asked to leave the program on any certain day, he/she is welcome to come back to the next dance class. After being asked, however, to leave three times, the child will not be able to return until the following session. If a student is removed from two sessions, he/she will not be able to return to the program for the remainder of the year. At this point, the Program Director and parent/guardian will need a conference to discuss this termination process. We will be consistent and fair, and offer any opportunity to accommodate. If there are extenuating circumstances, we will try to accommodate after conferencing with the parent/guardian, but rarely will there be exceptions.
Exceptions to the Three Strikes Policies
For these offenses, a child will be dismissed from Dance Happens immediately.
A student who does not have enough self-discipline to control his/her own behavior according to Dance Happens rules will be dismissed.
If your child is asked to leave Dance Happens, the parent/guardian/emergency contact person will be called to pick up the child immediately.
