Respecting Dance and the Classroom

From the first moment class begins, we teach them to honor and respect dance. Proper dance class etiquette is observed and respect for others is encouraged. Listening and following directions is the first step towards learning. Students are expected to participate in all the activities and are not allowed to wander around the room or distract others. Learning to dance is not about “discipline” but is about self-discipline. Self-discipline is the path to success in all areas of life. We are firm about proper behavior in class because with focus and self-control we create an atmosphere where creativity can surface and bloom.
