Studio Etiquette:

Please:

  • No food or drink (except water bottles) in the studios.  Students who need to bring meals to the studio should eat in the lobby.
  • No street shoes in the studios.  Please help keep our studio floors clean and free from damage; dancers should change into their dance shoes in the lobby.
  • No chewing gum anywhere in the studio.
  • Student cell phones should be turned off during class. 
  • Students should be dropped off and picked up promptly before and after class. JDA is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students.  For safety reasons, students must remain inside until they are picked up.

During the first few weeks of class, parents may come into the classroom to encourage their dancers if need be, but once the dancers are comfortable, please enjoy watching your children from the comfort of our lobby. Both studios have full color, high definition cameras, which are streaming live video to the two flat panel televisions hanging in our lobby.
