Ettiquette = Effort!

Excellent Etiquette Tip #1: Be on Time For Class
Dance is a physical activity that requires the body to be warmed up in order to execute movement safely. Late students miss the proper warm-up and/or barre and therefore may sustain injury. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late may be asked to observe class for reasons of personal safety.
Excellent Etiquette Tip #2: Make Sure you Look your Best
Music House maintains a dress code to encourage concentration and a sense of inclusiveness. Uniformity in dancewear allows the teachers to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training.
·       Watches, jewelry, and safety pins should not be worn to class.
·       Dance shoes should never be worn outside.
·       Students with long hair should wear it tightly secured and styled away from the face
