  • Arrive on time. Latecomers will not be accommodated.
  • New students should arrive at least 15 minutes before class to tour the studios and complete their waiver form.
  • Class placement is at the discretion of our instructors to ensure the safety of all students. Your skill level may be assessed and recommendations made.
  • Dress Code. We do not have an official dress code, but we suggest that you wear clothes that are comfortable to move in and do not restrict you. Avoid clothes that are too loose, as they will make it difficult for the teacher to give you accurate feedback.
  • Professional Rates are for dancers employed by one of the accepted Bay Area dance companies or a legitimate national or international dance company; or be a member of AFTRA, AGMA, Actor’s Equity, or SAG.
