Dance Program Policies:

You may view our Behavior Code of Conduct HERE.

For Fall/Spring: If your class is participating in an annual performance (Holly Jolly Follies or Spring Dance Showcase), enrollment in the session means that you will perform with your class.  This is not optional.  By enrolling, you understand that you are required to perform and/or purchase the necessary costume/shoes/undergarments/etc.

Students must wear appropriate dancewear and shoes for each class they attend. 

Students must attend all classes unless ill or have a family emergency.  Students who miss too many classes may be dropped (without a refund) at teacher's discretion.

Please do NOT wear dance shoes outdoors. 

It is recommended that all students bring a dance bag to C.R.O.W.​

Long hair must be pulled back into a bun or ponytail and out of face at all times. Do not leave long hair down / hanging in face.

Proper personal hygiene is required at all times, including use of deodorant if needed.   

PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO DANCE CLASSES IN STREET CLOTHES. Students should arrive to C.R.O.W. already dressed for dance.  Restroom facilities are available, but space is limited for changing, so we strongly recommend you arrive dressed and ready to dance.   

Please ask us if you need financial assistance with shoes/attire.  We will do whatever we can to make sure every child has what he/she needs for class.

If you want to donate shoes that are too small, we do have a small shoe donation box.  Adults may also look in the donation box for your child's size, but will need to do so when it is convenient for C.R.O.W.  We typically do not have many shoes in larger/adult sizes.  

Absolutely NO offensive logos or graphics permitted in our space.  Students dressed inappropriately will not be permitted to take class. 

Hip Hop / Jazz / Acro: leggings or tights, sweats, form fitting t-shirt or leotard.  Jazz/Hip-Hop: dance quality sneakers or black jazz shoes.  Acro: barefoot.  Any appropriate, non-distracting dancewear is typically acceptable.  
Contemporary: leggings or tights, sweats, form fitting t-shirt or leotard, barefoot or half soles.  Any appropriate, non-distracting dancewear is typically acceptable. 
Ballet: Girls: pink tights, black leotard, pink ballet shoes with elastics over arch.  Girls may wear a simple ballet skirt, no tutus.  Boys: black tights or black leggings, white T-shirt, black ballet shoes. 
Tap: Any dancewear or comfortable attire you can move in, tap shoes are required.  We suggest oxford style tap shoes (For beginners, we recommend flexible sole such as "Tap Flex" or similar)
Strength & Conditioning: any comfortable workout attire
Creative Movement: Girls can wear leggings or tights, leotard, skirt or tutu is fine.  Boys can wear tight fitting sweats, leggings, and T-shirt.  Appropriate logos/words only.  Ballet or jazz shoes are preferred over sneakers. 


Please enjoy your food and snacks in the car or at home before entering the C.R.O.W. building if at all possible.  Non-messy snacks (pretzels, carrots, granola bar, string cheese, etc.) may be quickly eaten between classes by students who have multiple classes/long days.  However, if students do not clean up their personal trash, this privilege will be revoked.  Do not leave trash & crumbs on the floor!  Do not bring messy foods, juice, candy, gum, soda, easily spillable fast food/coffee drinks to C.R.O.W.  Water in an enclosed container with your name on it is recommended.  We have a water bottle filler in the hallway for all students to use.  Above all else, please clean up after yourselves! 


Parents and visitors are not permitted to observe classes without express permission from the instructor.  This policy was created in 2021 by the C.R.O.W. Board of Directors for the safety of all students, and for the best possible educational experience for our class participants. 

Parents, p
lease drop your child off at the door and return to pick them up when class concludes.  Young children (under 13) may not walk out to the parking lot alone.  Parents may come inside at the beginning/end of class to drop off/pick up, but may not remain to watch any portion of class without permission from the teacher.
