Class placement is at the teacher’s discretion. Not all students will move up a level every year. Some students will remain in the same class level for two years or more depending on their development. We would be happy to set up a meeting if you have questions regarding placement. The final decision will be based on what the teacher thinks will benefit the student the most. We ask that you trust and respect our decisions.
Due to COVID-19, lobby access will be limited until restrictions are lifted. Students will go directly to class rooms and we will limit the number of parents in the lobby area. Once restrictions are lifted the following guidelines will be in full effect:
All dancers should remain in the lobby until their teacher is ready for class to begin. Dancers should change into appropriate dance attire and shoes, use the restroom, and eat a snack, etc., before class begins. Children under 7 years should not be left in the lobby unattended. All food and drink should remain in the lobby. Absolutely NO food or drink allowed in the dressing room or back hallway.
ABSOLUTELY NO FOOD OR DRINGK ALLOWED IN THE DANCE ROOMS. Only water in a closed container will be permitted. NO cell phones will be allowed in class. No students allowed in rooms without a teacher present. No "playing" in studios before classes.
ABSENCE AND SICK POLICY
If your student is running a fever or has been in contact with anyone positive for COVID-19, the student should not attend classes. There will be NO REFUNDS for missed classes. Student may take make up classes when returning to studio. We will be sending out fun, educational videos throughout the season in order to offer options for those missing classes due to illness or quarantine.
COVID -19 POLICIES
Class sizes will be limited and are on a first come first serve basis. Once a class is has reached capacity there will be no exceptions to added students. If for any reason Branson goes back to lockdown, we will continue classes through Zoom online. You will be required to pay the following months tuition. If you choose to discontinue classes after that month, a drop form will need to be sent in writing by the 20th of the month in order to be exempt from additional tuition charges. If the class is not dropped you will be responsible for tuition.
PARENTS & VISITORS
Parents are welcome to remain in the lobby during class or leave and return when class is over. No one will be allowed in dance rooms during class with the exception of scheduled visitors week. Please inform your teacher if someone different will be picking up your child. We will not let children leave with unknown adults.
PICK UP & DROP OFF
Please do not drop your student off more than 10 minutes before any class. Students must remain inside the lobby after class and watch for parents through the doors; they are not allowed to wait outside.
STARBUCKS / TARGET / MCDONALD'S
Dance Branson is not responsible for children who visit nearby restaurants, businesses or any other part of the shopping complex. Students will not be allowed to leave the dance studio to go to these places without parent permission.
Please encourage your child to use the restroom before class, as doing so during class time is distracting and takes away from their learning potential.
