SEASON 14 / 2012-2013
ARRIVAL / SECURITY
For safety and student accountability, all students under the age of 11 are to be physically brought to their classroom by a parent or guardian. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILD TO ENTER THE CHURCH BUILDING OR WEST STUDIO ON THEIR OWN. Students should arrive promptly. We suggest that students arrive at least 5-10 minutes prior to class time. If a student is more than 15 minutes late to class and misses class warm-up, the teacher may ask the student to sit and observe class instead of participating. This is not a punishment, but is for their physical safety. This decision will be made at the discretion of the individual teacher.
Students under the age of 11 will not be allowed to leave class until a parent or guardian picks them up from the class.
Please do not ask your child to meet you in the parking lot for pick up. Please physically come to the room to pick them up. Also, please be aware that class schedules are planned with classes starting back to back. Your prompt pick up of your child is appreciated and will allow our class schedule to continue as planned.
Teaching a student the meaning of commitment is another basic building block of character - and commitment is always costly! If your child seems discouraged, please let us know. Many times there may be some simple solution to the problem, or an extra dose of encouragement may do the trick.
Sometimes the strenuous nature of dance combinations, the challenges of learning new music, and the difficulty of completing a task presents an overwhelming reaction in a student. We want to stress the importance of finishing a class and learning to respond rather than react to frustrations that might seem insurmountable but can realistically be conquered and mastered.
For the 2012-2013 season, enrollment is open for dance students through November 1, 2012. In preparation for the annual end-of-year production, new dance students are not accepted after this date.
There may be some short spring semester classes that begin in late January or early February 2012. Enrollment will be open for those classes. Please note that short spring semester classes do not perform in our end-of-year production.
In cases of inclement weather ONLY, Victory Dance will follow the Putnam City Schools cancellation schedule. If Putnam City Schools are closed due to ice, snow, etc. VDance will not have classes. We do not follow Putnam City Schools calendar for closing of holidays, teacher in-service days, etc.
