Studio Consortium

Dance Xtreme Studio Inc. is part of the Dance Safe Ontario. This is a group of studios owners/directors throughout Ontario, working together and with support of local and federal government officials to develop Performing Arts & Dance Studio COVID-19 Protocols. This was initially to address proper procedures during studio closure and to ensure we all work together with unified protocols in ensuring a safe environment for staff, students and communities. The consortium will continue to address wide encompassing issues many studio owners are still facing as a result of this global pandemic.

Studio Policies

The following Studio Policies are in place to keep our studio running efficiently throughout the year.  Please keep our studio tidy, and pick up after yourselves (all items you have have used and put away) so that the next day’s dancers have a clean studio to come too. Thank you for your consideration and cooperation.

STUDIO DRESS CODE

Why Dance Xtreme Follows a Dress Code:

All aspects of the dress code have been chosen with the safety of the dancer in mind. The dress code selected for each genre will allow for the teacher to examine and correct technique and form without the distraction of excess accessories or additional fabric. All outfits are age and activity appropriate. Studio rules regarding hair style are also placed in the dress code to ensure that all dancers have a full range of sight while dancing. Another element that came into play while opting to include a dress code within the studio is teaching young dancers, discipline, self-respect and the respect of sport.

Credits must be used before next new season stars. We will not transfer any credits to other dancers or following season. The costume and song will be selected by your dancers instructor.

*Parents are required to purchase tickets for the year end show which are in addition to class fees.

*Once costumes have been ordered, costumes cannot be cancelled or returned. Costumes are not custom made, they are sized to fit the average person of that size. For young children still growing we recommend submitting child’s size 1″-2″ more for “growing room”. Remember the bigger the better, as you will have material to work with for alterations, if the costume is too small alterations could be a problem. You know your child best, we do not.

*Many costumes arrive with some alterations or attachments required. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure these alterations or attachments are completed prior to picture day.

*If a costume is ordered incorrectly it is the sole responsibility of you, the parent or guardian to pay for the full cost of replacing the costume in the correct size.

*Any accessories that are required to complete the look of the costume for the showcase will be determined by the artistic director and will be the responsibility of the parent or guardian to purchase any new tights, shoes, earrings etc. Our studio dress code tight and shoes are used for the year end showcase, so please take care of your items throughout the season.  We can not allow brands from walmart, etc.. to be used or dirty wear.

CLASS PLACEMENT  

Recreational classes are available to help each student, regardless of age, ethnicity, sex, gender, physical or cognitive abilities to reach their fullest potential by enhancing their interest, talents and enthusiasm across all dance disciplines. Our pedagogical approach emphasizes dance and physical literacy as aspects of holistic human development.  Know matter how old you are,  it’s never too late to start dance. All students are placed in a class that suits both their age and skill set(ability). Students are assessed regularly to make certain they are placed in classes that are best suited for them.

FUN & SUPPORTIVE DANCE STUDIO

We understand that students dance for different reasons, and we make every effort to accommodate every one of our dancers individually. A student dancing for pure enjoyment, 30 mins a week deserves as much dedication, and technical training from our instructors as the more career-oriented dancer. Everyone has their own personal goals as a dancer; we are dedicated to helping you reach yours. We believe that nothing is an obstacle in life, unless you allow it to be.
