*Dress: Having the proper clothing and footwear for dance and fitness classes is essential for students to maximize their mobility in class. It also allows instructors and students to see the lines of the body to correct placement and alignment. Students who are not appropriately dressed for class may be asked to not participate. We are a family friendly environment and apparel should not be overly revealing or vulgar. Please, no bare midriffs, revealing shorts, fishnet tights or apparel with negative imagery or language. If there is any reason the dress code is a difficulty for you, please let us know and we will do our best to help. (Local dance supply shops are: Dancer’s Closet, Newark and Opening Night, Gahanna and Dublin.)
*Cancellations: The Ballet Academy reserves the right to cancel 1 class per term for unforeseen circumstances; this is not common and students are welcome to make up the class. The Ballet Academy reserves the right to combine classes when necessary.
*Make-up Classes: There is no tuition credit for dancer absences and dancers are encouraged to make up missed classes. Make-up classes are taken at the same or lower level and must be completed within 30 days of the missed class. Some classes may not be available for use as a make-up class.
*Complimentary Classes: Dancers who are enrolled in all of the available classes at their level may take a lower level classes at no charge.
*Pointe Program Guidelines: The following classes are included in the program: Pre-Pointe, Beginning Pointe, Pointe 1, Pointe 2 and Partnering. In order for our dancers to have the strength to support the rigors of pointe work, we require that all dancers take a minimum of two ballet technique classes per week in addition to any Pointe Program classes. These guidelines are in place to protect the safety and health of our dancers. Dancers who lack strength run the risk of injury and long-term ill effects on their bones and joints. As always decisions regarding individual pointe readiness and student advancement are based on age, strength & flexibility, student focus and instructor recommendations. More information about our approach to pointe work is available here.
