Bringing the best of training WITH INDIVIDUAL CARE


We try to offer as much training for as little cost to you as we possibly can. Time in the studio, repetition of material and physical training of the body take a great deal of care. Development demands a certain level of commitment. For younger students, one time a week is a wonderful introduction. As the student begins to focus, more frequent and consistent training is the only way to develop proficiency and satisfaction. Therefore we have tried to price multiple classes at a lower per class rate to allow that training. Please let us know if you have any questions on our tuition pricing.

ATTENDANCE AND MAKE-UPS

Students Enrolled for the Semester may make up missed classes at an equivalent or less advanced level at any time within the semester. It is important to keep up the physical rhythm and training as well as the mental connection that comes with time in the studio. A lower level class will allow students the chance to demonstrate the proficiency gained as well as reinforce the structure of the technique at a slightly slower pace. This is an invaluable tool both in training and confidence building.

 

ADULTS

A class card is available for purchase at $60 for 5 hours of class or $105 for 10 hours of class time. 75/90 minute classes are marked as 1.5 hours. Please come to the registration desk, or have the instructor mark the card before class. Adults are also welcome to register for the class of choice from the regular registration fee schedule. The adult dress code is less strict, and adults are encouraged to wear close fitting dance wear but follow their choices for color and style. Proper shoe wear is essential.

 

DRESS CODE

Ladies: Solid colored leotard, pink tights, pink shoes. NO t-shirts, patterned overblouses or sweatshirts!
Skirts, leg warmers, and other attire will NOT be permitted except by express consent of the teacher.

Gentlemen: White t-shirt, black tights (bike pants) white socks, black or white shoes

IT SOMETIMES GETS COLD IN THE STUDIOS. Please provide your dancer with a close fitting solid color sweater especially over sleeveless leotards.

All students are asked to have their hair securely fastened away from their faces so that it does not fly into eyes. Beginning 1 and higher girls are required to put their hair in a bun (or very short hair in a ponytail). This includes bobby pins or barrettes to keep loose strands out of the face. Please adhere to our very generous dress code policy.

Please be aware that discount store footwear is poorly made and fitted. It is frustrating for dancers to utilize equipment which works against their efforts. Approved attire is available at the Enchanted Pointe, 226 N. 6th Street, Lafayette
765-404-8560 and www.enchantedpointe.com

 



POLICIES

1. Our goal is to provide the best possible training in a positive atmosphere.
2. Students will NOT be permitted to enter class if they arrive anytime 10 minutes after the start time. The tardy arrival negates the progression of physical and mental concentration by others. It also misses the crucial focus and warm-up for that student. There are alternate days in which these classes can be made up.
3. Instructors reserve the right to dismiss any student from class due to unruly behavior, or refusal to work within the structure of the class.
4. Parental observation in studio B is limited to the window. The window will not be open at all times. Class dynamics vary. Some classes are extremely disturbed by visitors at the window. We reserve the right to close observation at the window by drawing the blinds at any time.
5. Classes held in studio A are hindered by clients speaking loudly, children running in the hallway, playing the piano or keeping the door open during cold weather. Respectful observation at the front of the studio is available at all times, and allows children and their parents to observe the role models of the older students.
6. The lost and found shoe supply is for emergency use only, not to replace the proper equipment which should be purchased for each child.

RESPECT

7. Parental disagreement with our instruction should be limited to private consultations and not done in front of the other clients or students.
8. There are no refunds on prepaid tuition. If you are unsure of our working methods we encourage you to observe a class before enrolling. If you are in some way unsatisfied with the student's progress later in the semester, it does NOT entitle you to a refund of tuition. Our instruction remains what it is, and the way each student reacts to this training is personal,
9. LBS is not a preschool. Classroom etiquette, the ability to wait for a turn, and the respect for others in the classroom is essential. Please work with your child in the awareness of these aspects of the dance training as well as the actual dance knowledge which is presented.
10. Parents, siblings and friends of students are asked to have the same respect within the waiting area. That includes clean up of toys if they were used, correct disposal of liquids in the restroom sinks rather than in the trash, and supervised use of the restroom areas and hallways for very young children.
11. If a parent does not remain with the student please be sure that we have all correct contact information, and that you arrive promptly to pick up the student. If an unusual circumstance prevents this, please call the desk: 423-1633 immediately. Students leaving the building should be dressed in STREET attire with the body appropriately covered and street shoes. This is a downtown business district.

Classes can be observed upon request by visitors and prospective students. Parents are encouraged to observe from the windows or outside the classroom as they are able. An understanding of the rigorous demands of the training will help parents to better encourage their children.
