Enrollment/Admissions:

It is the policy of BQC School of Dance not to discriminate based on race, sex, color, religion, national origin or ancestries that are unrelated to the ability to dance or enjoy the benefits of the performing arts.

Attendance:

Dancers are expected to maintain a high level of attendance to class. Regular attendance in class helps build strength and lessens the risk of injury.  Roll will be taken for each class. If a dancer has an excessive amount of absences, the teacher may advise the dancer to move down a level.  Please note, there is no refund for absences.

Advancement/Progression:

Teachers will assess each dancer. Advancement to the next level is based on individual progress in class and the level of understanding and maturity demonstrated in class. Any questions regarding your dancer’s progression should be addressed in a scheduled parent/teacher conference. Only students who are approved for and complete pre-pointe class may be allowed to begin training on pointe.

Observation:

A designated “Watch Week” will be assigned for one week each semester to allow parents an opportunity to observe their dancer in a classroom setting. If you wish to observe your dancer at a time other than during the designated “Watch Week”, please contact the school or the instructor prior to the day of the class you wish to observe.
