A Few Things to Know About SSDC

Proper Dancewear

Class Conduct

  • We expect our dancers to behave appropriately within the studio
  • Be kind to your fellow dancers
  • See the director with any issues and before serious problems occur. Complaints will remain confidential when possible and will be addressed in a general way
  • Class "rules" help prevent injury and help maintain a solid class structure
  • We see discipline as maintaining a safe and nurturing environment where the dancer can have fun and learn. If a child becomes a distraction (s)he may be asked to leave class. This is to help the other dancers
  • Please remember that ALL dancers develop in different ways at different ages. We are not competitive with one another. Class levels are determined by a combination of physical, mental and emotional factors. Dance is different for each child
  • Please do not hesitate to ask questions and help us do what is best for your dancer. Please ask if you need something or have a concern
