Recital Policy - To provide the best quality show possible students are not allowed to miss more than one class during the last 6 weeks of the dance season. If students miss more than one class during that time participation in the recital will not be possible. Exceptions will only be allowed if previous arrangements have been made with the instructor.

Good and regular attendance is expected. Students cannot achieve their goals with out consistent attendance. Jody's school of Dancing has the right to remove a student from a class as a result of poor attendance.

Parental Observation

The studio waiting area has an observation TV to allow parents to view class. The Observation TV will be turned on at the director's discretion. Parents are invited to observe finished routines during Peek Week. Peek Week takes place the last week of scheduled classes before the recital. Visitors may view finished routines the last ten minutes of class. Please arrange for babysitters on these days as small children can be very distracting to those dancing and watching.

Inclement Weather

In the event of stormy weather, kindly call the studio #781-396-8180, a half-hour before your scheduled class. There will be a recording if classes are cancelled. Public School cancellation does NOT necessarily mean that dance classes will be cancelled. Class cancellations will be sent out by email, listed on our Facebook page and sent through Remind101.

Waiting Area

Our Waiting Area is solely for the use of our students. Please do not bring friends to wait between classes as there is not enough room. Valuables should be brought into the dancing rooms with the students. Please bring small snacks only into our waiting area. Full meals should be eaten at home. No fried foods or open containers allowed in waiting area. Please bring closed water bottles. Jody's School of Dancing is not liable for any lost or stolen item left in any area of the studio.

Drop off and pick up: There will be a $20 charge for students not picked up after 15 minutes of the end of dance class. This also applies to students dropped off more than 15 minutes before start time of class. We are not responsible for students in our waiting area.
