General Studio Policies:

Kim Massay Dance Productions is proud of our new studio.  We need your help in keeping our studio clean and tidy.  Dancers and Parents need to clean up before leaving the studio. Siblings are welcome in our waiting areas, however please do not allow them to put their feet on the furniture, run through the lobby, or make excessive noise that could disrupt ongoing classes. Children not in class are the responsibility of the parents, not the studio, and should be under parent supervision at all times.

  • Please throw away all trash.  Trash cans are located in several locations around the lobby.

  • Food or drinks are not permitted in the studio lobby or dance rooms.  Food and drinks will only be permitted in the break room.

  • Gum is not permitted in the dance studio or dance rooms.

  • Please do not leave any children unattended in the lobby or dance rooms.

Classroom Policies:

  • Dancers should arrive on time or a little early for each of their classes.  Dancers who arrive late cause distraction and delays.  It is important for the dancer to arrive on time.

  • Dancers should come into class fully prepared with hair properly secured and dance shoes on.

  • Dancers should keep talking to a minimum during class instruction.

  • Teachers reserve the right to dismiss any dancer from class who continuously disrupts.  Dancers need to be courteous in the classroom as there are other students trying to learn.

  • A parent/teacher conference will take place before a “dismissed student” may return to class.

  • Parents are not allowed in the classroom during class time.  Each studio will have a viewing window.  Once a month the curtains will be open for parents to watch.

  • Parents will be invited to a Visitor’s Day once a semester.

Dropping Off and Picking Up Dancers:

Parents are welcome to drop their dancer off for dance class.  Parents are welcome to stay for young children in our combo classes that need help changing shoes.  If you drop your dancer off, please be sure to pick them up on time.  It is not the responsibility of the studio to watch your child if they are no longer attending class.  If you are late in picking up your child and a KMDP staff member or instructor must stay past their scheduled time, you will be charged a $15.00 late pick-up fee.  If you are parking on the driveway that leads to the back of the studio, please only park on one side so cars from the back lot do not get blocked in.

Negative posting toward anyone in our studio or someone else’s studio is absolutely prohibited.

No liking, sharing, re-tweeting any negative posts in general. When you do this, yourself, your classmates, and our studio is now associated with the negativity. Parents please monitor your dancer’s social media and make any adjustments necessary.  If you see something that needs to be addressed immediately please notify info@kimmassaydance.com. We will be watching, violators will face consequences.  Repeat offenders may be removed from classes (dances).
