Please Note: TWS has a zero tolerance for BULLYING!!!

 

TARDINESS

It is very important that each dancer arrives on time to their class. We highly suggest arriving 10 minutes before class to get settled in.

Being on time means each dancer will participate in the warm up and be much better prepared for the rest of the class.

 

MAKE UP CLASSES

Make up classes are not available at this time.

If you miss a class, you will not be able to make it up.

 

PICK UP’S/DROP OFF’S

Parents/Guardians are asked to pick up their student on time.

A fee of $10.00 will be added to your account if you are more than 15 minutes late and/0r more than 15 minutes early.

TWS is a dance studio, not a daycare.

Please Remember: It’s unfair if a student only attends one day and we have to reorganize the class pieces.

Tickets will be sold to offset the expense of the recital. All attending must purchase a ticket.

PRODUCTION SHOWCASE

 

A Production showcase is for ONLY serious, dedicated students. This will require more rehearsals and training.

All students must audition to be casted in the production. If fail to follow the rules required for the production student

may be removed from cast. Our productions are the best way to bring together various

story lines, music, dance, and other endless possibilities.

TWS will have two production showcases. Schedule for December & June.

In order to participate the Production package is required. Production will be held on one or two days.

Tickets will be sold to offset the expense of the recital. All attending must purchase a ticket.
