To feel like a dancer, one must dress like a dancer. Students must be properly dressed for classes in order to participate. Parents will be notified if students are not appropriately dressed.

Pre-school and Kindergarten parents - Please take your child to the restroom before class to avoid accidents and disruption of the class.
Students are expected to be present and on time for all classes. It is very important that all dancers and acrobats get the appropriate warm-up needed to avoid injury. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late to a class may be asked to sit out to avoid risk of injury. Please notify the school if a student will be absent.
"Perfect Attendance" awards will be awarded to those students who have no absences for the year in at least one class, beginning 10/1. NO EXCEPTIONS! You must be registered and enrolled in class prior to October 1st to be eligible. Please do not mistake this as a punishment for those students who unfortunately lose perfect attendance. It is a huge achievement for those who happen to get through the whole year and we will not compromise the integrity of that honor. Please do not put us in the position to make an exception.
Perfect Attendance recipients will receive a personalized trophy and a special on stage performance at the end of the season recital. Recipients names will also be printed in the souvenir program handed out at the show.
A two hour party. The first hour consists of a class of your choice (ballet, acro, hip hop, etc.). The second hour can be used as you wish (cake, food, games, presents, crafts). We provide the class, the space, and the clean-up. You can decorate however you like.

- While classes are in session, please do not open the dance room door. It is very distracting to the dancers and teachers.
- The lobby is not a play area. Siblings of students in class are expected to sit quietly and must remain supervised.

Level & Placement
Students will be placed by the Core Elements Creative Team (directors, choreographers, instructors & staff), in the appropriate group for each student’s skill set. Placement is done according to age and ability and will reflect previous years’ performance and class attendance. Placement decisions are derived from many years of teaching experience, and are not an opportunity for negotiation.
Often a child is placed in a group or class where he or she will feel confident, in order to promote the development of self-esteem. A dancer who is placed in a group above their current level of ability risks losing their passion for dance. There are rare occurrences where a dancer responds to the challenge of being in a class with dancers who are more proficient by pushing themselves to work harder. Placement is highly individual and the factors that go into the decision are complex. We see your students in this atmosphere and strive to place each one appropriately so that they receive the proper training to suit their learning personalities.
Parents, siblings, and observers are not permitted in the classroom at any time. We need your dancer’s full attention. The studio is equipped with a closed circuit television network. You will be able to view your child’s class on one of our flat screen televisions.
Pick-up & Drop-off
Please drop-off and pick-up your child within 15 minutes of class time, as we are very busy and cannot provide your child with the attention they deserve to be safe. Late (more than 15 min.) pick-ups will be charged a fee.
Please park and come in to the studio to pick up your child. For their safety, we require every child wait inside until their parent/guardian comes in to pick them up. We cannot supervise them if they are waiting outside the studio.
We will follow Forsyth & Fulton County’s decision on school closings. There are NO refunds or make up classes when the studio must close. Please check the studio's website and social media pages to confirm closings.

We reserve the right to drop from our register any student for any reason including: excessive lateness or absence; disruptive behavior; non-payment of tuition or other charges
