Attendance

Consistent attendance is essential to dancer progress in class. We recommend that dancers attend all classes in a session to see improvement. However, if your child is ill, please stay home and recover. If you anticipate an absence from your child’s class, inform your teacher in advance when possible or email Genevieve Garcia at genevieve.garcia@pdop.org

Bathroom Breaks

Visit the restroom before class begins.  Please limit requests for breaks during class to reduce distractions for the students and staff and to maxmize the time we have in the studio together. 

Classroom Etiquette

Please make sure that your child has had water, a snack, washed hands, and visited the restroom prior to class as to not disturb the rhythm and focus of the class.  

To enter, we will line up at the far door at GRC and at the studio door for Stevenson and RCRC class. To exit, we will use the doors closest to the restrooms.

Parents/guardians may only enter the room when there is an observation day.  If you feel that your dancer may need some transitional help into the dance space, please email Genevieve Garcia and the team will do our best to accommodate your dancer’s needs.  

Communication

We strive for excellent customer service with proactive communcation and kindness from your teacher, teaching assistant, Dance Program Supervisor, and Customer Service Staff. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to discuss them with your instructor or contact Program Supervisor Genevieve Garcia, genevieve.garcia@pdop.org.
