Important points to take away from the Policy and Procedure Document
Every student participating in a dance class of an afternoon must make their way over to the dance studio immediately after school to sign in.
Thongs – we suggest that the easiest way to ensure that your child is always wearing footwear is to pack a pair of thongs in their dance bag. That way after changing in the MPH they can easily slip them on to walk back to the studio.
If your child will not be attending dance class, please phone/message/email Leigh to let her know that she/he will be absent.
Parents with children in Prep-Year 3 need to present themselves to a Dare 2 Dance staff member or assistant before they are released after a dance class.
Students in Year 4 and above need to be able to point out their parents to a Dare 2 Dance staff member or assistant after their dance class.
No dance student can leave the dance studio area unless their parent has arrived to collect them.
Parents are to be prompt in collecting their child otherwise they will be supervised in the homework room and a child-minding fee will be imposed.
College rules apply at all times – i.e. no entering MPH/climbing on railings. Footwear is to be worn before/after dancing. This includes parents/siblings waiting for a family member to finish dancing.
