All we want is for you to have fun and to enjoy yourselves whilst at our studios. For the enjoyment and safety of everyone, the following rules apply:
Clothing: All students need to be in the appropriate dance/sports clothing and footwear as appropriate (see list below under Health and Safety).
Jewellery: No jewellery is to be worn to class at any time. If earrings cannot be removed then they should be covered with a plaster.
Hair: Hair is to be tied up so it is out of the face to keep vision clear and to avoid any distractions when learning.
Arrival Time: Students must be ready for classes 5 minutes prior to the start time to ensure a smooth transition between classes.
Behaviour: Teachers and staff expect respect and polite behaviour from all involved with Simply Dance at all times. Any inappropriate behaviour will be recorded and suitable action will be taken. If any inappropriate behaviour takes place from either staff or customers, we ask kindly that it is reported to us to help resolve the situation as this too will not be tolerated.
If a student’s behaviour in class is unacceptable, disrespectful or distracting and disrupting to the others in the class, we will discipline them appropriately or ask them to leave if the behaviour persists. We are within our rights to ask anyone to leave the premises at any time if a behaviour is deemed inappropriate and threatening. In the event of this being a minor, the appropriate guardian will be contacted.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Uniform: Appropriate uniform to be worn to all classes. Examples below.
A Simply Dance logo item is compulsory for all children students and must be worn to all classes over leotards and will be required for all events throughout the year. This will ensure out and about helpers and staff can easily locate our children from others. Although we are a no-pressure dance school with no exams this does not mean we are untidy and careless with what we do, a uniform is very important to the improvement and safety of the children/customers who attend our classes. Correct dancewear allows teachers to see all children clearly and ensure customers’ posture is correct as if this is being executed incorrectly, injuries can occur. Items are available to purchase from the studio, please contact us for more information.
