PARENTS CODE OF CONDUCT

  1. Parents must notify THE DANCE COMPANY staff if their child will be not attending a lesson for whatever reason. If more than 2 lessons are missed without notification we will assume that the student is not returning and placement will be filled.

  2. Parents are asked to encourage their child/children to dance as long as he/she is interested. Please don't force your child to attend classes if it’s not what they want.

  3. Parents must understand that dance is fun but also an art. Your child may receive corrections, the teacher may yell over the music directions/corrections, your child may be asked to repeat things numerous times and sometimes the teacher may take a firm stance in class to achieve results. This is not the teacher picking on your child, disrespecting your child, or having an attitude problem but your teacher striving for results maximising your child s potential and sometimes working to a deadline (concerts exams, or competitions)

  4. Parents are asked to have their child/children at class at least 10 minutes early.

  5. Parents are asked to NOT speak to the teacher in between classes, as classes run back to back it interferes with other children’s paid lesson time. If you need to speak to the teacher please email to arrange a time which suits both parties. The studio's email address is: thedanceco@live.com.au

  6. Payment of class/classes is to be made at the beginning of the lesson unless prior arrangements have been made.

  7. During term 4 parents are asked to help the studio prepare for the concert by having their child at all lessons and rehearsals.

  8. Parents are asked to encourage their child/children to follow the rules of the dance studio and be respectful to teachers, other students, and other parents at all times.

  9. Parents are asked to help promote THE DANCE COMPANY in a positive way. If you feel there are issues you would like addressed please discuss them with the director rather than between other dance parents. Most issues can be quickly resolved to avoid any animosity or negative gossip that holds no truth.

  10. Parents should not upload choreography onto any social media (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) unless permission is given by the director of The Dance Company as this is a breach of copyright.

  11. Parents need to indicate on the enrolment form if their child/children have an existing injury or medical conditions prior to starting classes at THE DANCE COMPANY. In some cases, you may be asked to obtain medical clearance from your local GP depending on the injury/condition before commencing classes. If they require any asthma sprays or specific medicines please indicate this on your enrolment form.

  12. In the unlikely event of an injury requiring treatment by a doctor, an ambulance will be called to the studio. Any parent opposed to this should advise on the enrolment form. Every effort will be made to contact the parent if this situation arises.
  13. Parents are asked to check emails regularly. All correspondence for THE DANCE COMPANY is done via email so please ensure you provide your current email address on the registration form. Also please advise the studio if any of your contact details change during the time you attend classes THE DANCE COMPANY.
