ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE

Prompt arrival and consistent attendance are crucial for dancers to be successful. No child under 5th grade should be left unattended or allowed to leave without an adult present at the studio door to pick them up (Paramount policy).

Please be quiet in the hallway outside the studios. Noise and even normal conversation can be distracting for in-progress classes.
