Policies & Prices
Studio Dance Centre’s policies for 2019-2020 are summarized on this page. For full policies, please see your Parent Guide.
SDC’s 2019-2020 dance season begins August 12 and ends May 23. Summer camps and classes are offered in June and July. SDC will be closed on the following dates during the season:
- September 2

Proper attire and shoes are required for all dancers at SDC. The dress code supports our mission to provide high-quality instruction; it allows more freedom of movement, ensures safety in the studio, and instructors are better able to correct alignment and muscle use. The dress code allows dancers to focus on learning and having fun! Please know that dancers who do not follow the dress code may be asked to observe class. Upon registration you will receive details dress code information.
For all classes: no bare legs (no shorts) or bare midriffs; no extra jewelry (small earrings only); no fitness trackers; no hair ornaments; no skirts; no tutus, costumes, or dress-up wear. Dance pants or shorts may be permitted in tap, jazz, modern, or hip hop at the discretion of the instructor.
Leotards and tights are meant to be form-fitting and easy to dance in—please no underwear or sports bras. Nude dance undergarments are permitted and may be worn for classes or performances.
Dancers must wear a cover-up when coming to or from dance class. Dance shoes should be carried in a dance bag and never worn outside, as the outside wear-and-tear could damage our floors and your shoes.

Updates regarding bad weather days may be made via our website, voicemail recording, email, and/or text.
