What are the Rules of Dance Etiquette?

RESPECT YOURSELF: Come to class neatly dressed and prepared to focus on the work you’ve come to do.  Enter class with a positive attitude; leave your worries at the door and embrace the liberating energy of dance!!!
RESPECT YOUR PEERS: Allow the other students to focus on dancing. No running around, hanging on barres, touching mirrors, etc.  No social conversations during class, especially during a critique or when a combination is being taught or practiced.
RESPECT AUTHORITY FIGURES: Our instructors are here to share their experience, wisdom, and passion for dance with YOU!  Please give them your full attention, especially when they are giving critiques.  Assume every comment is directed to you personally and your dance technique will quickly improve by leaps and bounds!!!
RESPECT YOUR ENVIRONMENT: Prima Dance Arizona invites you to take ownership of YOUR studio! Please clean up after yourself and set an example for the younger dancers.

What are the General Studio Rules?

Class will begin on time. Our schedule allows for a 5-minute transition between classes.  Students are asked to be dressed appropriately with their hair done before entering the classroom.  For his/her safety, any student arriving more than 10 minutes late may be asked by the instructor to observe the rest of class.
During class, dancers should keep their shoes and water bottle in a bin at the front of the room.
Please--NO street shoes of any kind on the classroom floors.  Dance shoes are NOT to be worn outside the studio.
NO gum. No food or drink inside the classrooms. The refrigerator and microwave are available to use during breaks; please clean up your own mess and do not leave food in the refrigerator overnight.
PLEASE NO NUT PRODUCTS, THANK YOU! We have some students that are anaphylactic to nuts; we try to maintain an environment that is safe for everyone.
***Focus on the Positive Energy of Dance and HAVE FUN!!!!***
