Proper dance footwear is permitted in the studios. Tap shoes are allowed ONLY in Studio 1. Street shoes are not allowed in any studio. Please remove your shoes before entering the studio; this applies to all participants and observers. High heels and rosin are forbidden in the studios.
Ballet barres should be used in their intended manner and cannot be removed from the studio, unless permitted to do so. Standing, sitting, swinging, or hanging on the barres is not permitted.
Sound systems are provided for your use in each studio. Each system is equipped to play via CD, AUX, or Bluetooth. The Bluetooth password is indicated on the sound system. The Front Desk is available to assist you if you need help operating a unit. If the volume level interrupts other activities or puts the speakers at risk, you will be asked to lower the volume.
