Please be respectful of our teachers and our students by observing these rules:


Do not enter a class that is in session - wait for a break in the music, then enter the studio.

Arrive on time and ready to dance, with a positive attitude and smiles!

No street shoes and no food in dance studios.

Cell phone use is not allowed during class time.

Eliminate distractions - no loud talking in the back hallway while dance/theatre classes or private classes are in session.

Reduce the likelihood of lost items by labeling all dance attire - clothing, shoes, tights and bags.  

DC DANCE is NOT responsible for missing items.
