We are looking forward to getting the dance season started this week! Please review and reach out ASAP if you have any questions or concerns.
Dance Class Checklist:
- Proper dance attire and hairstyle
- Dance shoes
- Water bottle
- Dancers with back-to-back classes may want to bring a small snack. No peanuts please.
Double check your class requirements in our Dress Code. If you don’t have the correct attire or shoes yet please wear anything that allows full range of movement and have your dancer bring a thin pair of socks.
Drop-Off & Pick-Up
We will be continuing to reduce congestion in our small entrance areas and recommend all parents/guardians drop-off and pick-up only (unless a dancer requires assistance inside the studio). For younger or first-time dancers we welcome an adult in to meet the instructor and get the dancer settled into the studio space at the start of class for the first week or two as needed.
Dancers will be enter through the green door and will exit and be picked up at the glass doors. The studio will open for dancer drop-off approximately 5 minutes before classes start. If you need to use the washroom or to come in to change before the first class of the evening please knock on the glass doors.
Note: Our parking lot can be quite busy, particularly in the early evening when our hours overlap with our neighbouring businesses. For safety we ask that parents walk younger dancers to the green door and come to the glass door for pick-up rather than waiting in your vehicle. Please also try to avoid blocking the NAPA garage door or their delivery vehicles.
Absences & Make-up Classes
A reminder that we continue to request that dancers and staff not attend in-person classes if they are sick. We are once again able to offer the option of make-up classes for dancers. If your dancer has missed a class they are encouraged to attend another level or style to make-up for their absence. Online class also remains an option if a dancer cannot attend in-person and wants to participate from home. Notify the studio with as much notice as possible if you will be taking class online or to schedule an in-person make-up class.
If you are paying in full by cash or cheque or in installments with postdated cheques please be sure to bring payment to the first class. If paying in full you can also send an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. Credit card payments will be processed either in full or in installments as selected in your account.
You can log in to the DanceWorks Kenora Portal at any time to update your payment method, make an advanced payment or double check your account balance. If you have applied to Triple Play or for funding through another organization please make sure you have notified the studio.
Please note that emails or text messages are Ms. Erin’s preferred methods of contact as they are easier to respond to quickly between classes or after classes in the evening.
PS. Registration is still open. Do you know someone that might be interested in dance? Many classes still have a few spots left and we do accept late registrations through the fall. (Classes that are full will show as a waitlist registration.)
