ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE -  Children's Division students must be accompanied by an adult and arrive no earlier than twenty minutes before class time.  Students must be ready to enter the studio on time.  It is not the instructor's responsibility to search the bathrooms or hallways for students.  All students must be picked up promptly after class.  We cannot be responsible for children after class time.  For your child's safety, please arrange for prompt pick-up and plan to come into the child's assigned waiting room to meet them.  For our Children's Division and Elementary level students protection, we do not allow them to wait outside or leave their waiting room until a parent or responsible adult retrieves them.

CANCELLATIONS - When conditions beyond our control necessitate it, we reserve the right to cancel classes while making our best effort to notify those students involved.  When the weather will not permit safe travel to lessons, we will close the studio when Topeka Public School District 501 closes the schools.  We will make announcements over the local television stations, email, Facebook, and a recorded message will be left on the studio phone.

MAKE-UPS - Regular attendance is of the utmost importance for the progress of both the student and the class.  Classes may be made-up before the end of the current season in May.  There will be no deduction of tuition for missed classes.  Please be prompt.  If a student is too tardy to safely join the class, he/she may be asked to observe.

SPECIAL PARENT DAYS - Parents of Children's Division and Elementary students are asked to attend the first ten minutes of their child's first class session in September for orientation and discussion of the studio rules.
Parent Visitation/Observation Days - We encourage all parents to visit classes during the last lesson in October, December, February, and April.  Please do not bring children under three years of age as they become restless and divert attention from the lesson.  Visitors are requested to refrain from talking to each other or to your child.  Observation of a class is permitted before enrolling.
Parent Participation Day - Parents of students enrolled in the Children's Division and Elementary classes are welcomed into the classroom to actually take a class with their child on this special day (last lesson in February).  This is a wonderful opportunity for parents and students to experience class work together.  Parents will participate in every aspect of the class, so you'll want to wear comfortable clothing and heavy socks.  We strongly encourage at least one parent to attend.  Your child won't care if you're not a Baryshnikov, they just want you there.  Who knows, you may want to enroll yourself in an adult class after experiencing class!
