All students should strive to have an overall neat and professional appearance.
Hair: Hair is to be pulled back into a neat ballet bun. "Wispies" and bangs should be pinned, or sprayed back and secured. Please no excessive scrunchies, headbands, or other hair accessories.
Jewelry: Please, no jewelry. This includes necklaces, bracelets, rings, anklets, and dangling earrings. Small earring studs are permitted. Jewelry can hit other dancers, rip out, snag, etc. It is a hazard to both the dancer wearing it and others in class.
Females: All female dancers are required to wear a plain, solid black leotard. Any sleeve is permissible. Pink ballet tights only (i.e. Capezio, Motionwear, Bodywrappers, etc). Pink canvas ballet shoes. All shoes and tights should be clean and without holes.
Males: Clean, form-fitting white shirt and black ballet tights or dance pants. Black canvas ballet shoes. All shoes and tights should be clean and without holes.
Warm-ups are not permitted in class unless specified otherwise.
Regular class attendance is important in developing a dancer's technique. Students that miss more than five classes a semester may not be allowed to perform. This will be at the discretion of their choreographer. Please notify us if your child will be absent prior to the start of class. Lateness is not permitted. Students that are late will not receive sufficient warm-up time, putting their bodies at risk for injuries. Also, students coming into class late are disruptive to their classmates. Any student more than 15 minutes late may be asked to sit out of class.
Recordings of any kind (photographs, video recordings, tape recordings, etc.) are strictly prohibited. This includes both classes and performances. Please do not post any recordings or pictures on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Youtube, Flickr or any other social networking site, media sharing site, or blog without permission from Mossa School of Dance.
Parents are not permitted to watch class. This can be disruptive and distracting to the students and teachers. Please do not enter the classrooms. There will be designated observation days when you may watch your child's classes.
In the case of mild injury or illness dancers are encouraged to continue to participate by sitting in on classes and taking notes.
