Dance Class Attendance and Tardiness Policies
Attendance on a regular basis is essential in order for the student to progress. As this is based on the number of students present, NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE IN THE CASE OF ABSENCES. Absences may be made up in another class. Be sure to alert the studio if there is to be an extended series of absences. ALL COMPANY MEMBERS ARE ONLY ALLOWED 1 BALLET ABSENT A MONTH, ADDITIONAL ABSENCES MUST BE MADE UP WITH PRIVATE LESSON OR ANOTHER LEVEL CLASS.
Arrival Time

Students should arrive no sooner than 15 minutes before their lesson begins, and should be picked up promptly after each lesson is over. The school is not responsible for students once their class is dismissed.

Late Arrivals
Students arriving to class after the warm-up period (15 minutes) will be asked to sit out that class. This is for your child’s benefit and physical safety. Your child will observe that class.
Bad Weather
We DO NOT cancel classes when schools are closed due to snow. If conditions are exceptionally bad, please call the studio in the afternoon to check, 703-330-5060. Or check on our twitter @SDDSOFFICIAL and STAGE DOOR DANCE STUDIO on Facebook.
Dance Attire

Please have your child come to dance class in appropriate dance clothes. All students are REQUIRED to purchase a black studio leotard from the studio. The BLACK leotards must be worn for EVERY dance class AND rehearsal. Pink tights should be worn for ballet. You may wear dance shorts over your leotards. NO SHIRTS ALLOWED.

Our annual dance recital will be held in June. Participation is voluntary but encouraged. If a student does not wish to participate, the instructor should be notified immediately. A dress rehearsal is held the week before the show. Please Note: FOR YOUR CHILD’S PROTECTION, ALL STUDENTS MUST REMAIN BACKSTAGE DURING THE ENTIRE PERFORMANCE. IF THIS IS A PROBLEM, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS BEFORE PURCHASING COSTUMES. PLEASE DO NOT SCHEDULE OTHER ACTIVITIES ON THESE DAYS. There will be no flash photography or video recording allowed during the performance. Most the venues in the area have a year long waiting list so the date will be released as soon as possible.


It is our goal to keep the expense of the recital to a minimum, but it will be your responsibility to purchase costumes (averaging $75.00 each). Families purchasing several costumes are welcome to make advance payments to avoid the expense at one time. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.


Pictures will be taken for your enjoyment and for the studio yearbook. All group pictures will be printed in the book but individual pictures are only printed when parents and/or students purchase space. You may get sponsors to purchase ads for you. The pictures are the responsibility of the individual, not the studio. The pictures must be purchased in order to be in the ad. The instructors will pose all students, but parents must purchase pictures from the photography studio. The photographers are not a subsidiary of Stage Door Dance Studio.


Parents wishing to discuss their child’s progress should send a note to arrange a time for a conference.
Please do not try to talk to the teacher between classes.

The staff at Stage Door is looking forward to teaching your children this year. We are always open for suggestions and constructive criticism to make Stage Door the best dance center possible.
