Hints for your first class...
 
Dancing is a highly trained art form which requires hard work and concentration. Dancing teaches coordination, musicality, skills for working in a group, and the list goes on. Above all else dance should be fun and enjoyable, even when dancing proves to be a challenge. Below is a list of guidelines to help make our class experience a fun and enriching one.
See you in class!

Communication

Class information is sent out via email. Students/Parents need to add Yvette Corvo Misner, dynamicdancing@sbcglobal.net to their contact list, please.
 
Attendance

Please be on time! If you are 15 minutes late (or more) you will have to watch class, since missing the warm up increases your chance of injury.

Let us know if you might be a bit late for class, if you need to leave early, or if you will miss a class.

Tell us if you are injured.

 
Etiquette


Please refrain from chewing gum, eating, drinking (except water) or running.

Please come to class ready and willing to participate to the best of your ability.

Please silence all cell phones and/or other electronic devices before class begins.

Do not talk a) when the teacher is talking, b) during an exercise, or c) when you should be watching your fellow classmates dance.

All students will treat their fellow students, the instructor, and other adults with courtesy and respect.

If for any reason a student demonstrates less than proper class etiquette they will be warned once, then, if the behavior is repeated, the student will need to sit out and watch, especially if their behavior is disrupting the class. For young students who repeat unacceptable behavior a third time, a parent meeting will be set up to discuss the child's behavior and solutions will be formulated to change the child's disrespectful behavior.

Dancing is a physical activity and as such touching the student to give corrections is sometimes required, if this is a problem in any way please let us know.


 
Etiquette for Parents and Observers


Once a dancer is comfortable with class, parents need to leave their children to do their class.

If you are in the dance area observing, please do not disrupt the class by making noise, such as taking phone calls or talking.

If you want to take pictures or shoot video of your dancer during class, you must speak to us first and we must make sure it is okay with the rest of the parents.
