Ah, rules.  You've got to love them.  As with all things provided at Reverence Dance Academy, we want to make sure that everyone of our students and their families know that a big part of enjoying a ballet class is having fun with people you enjoy being with.  It's been our experience over the past 20 years that though every family has their own version of rules to live by, there is a code of conduct which will help facilitate an effective, safe, and enjoyable dance experience if everyone adheres to them.

We wanted to take this opportunity to communicate what will be expected of every student who participates in Reverence Dance Academy.  I hope that we will communicate it in such a way that no family will feel restricted or confined, but will come to appreciate, as we have, the wonderful tradition of ballet, it's value as a classic art, and how it will help your children develop healthy and well disciplined habits for life.


Class Cancellation:  If Rockford or Northview schools are closed due to weather, Reverence Dance Academy will automatically be closed due to weather.  No email or posting is guaranteed.  We try to email if at all possible to help get the word out about the closing but it is not guaranteed and we do ask that each family be alert to closings.

Rule 1:  Payments will be made on or before the first class of each month.  Payments for half and full year in advance are allowed but subject to non refund policy as instructors may have been contracted as part of the fulfillment requirements based on student demand.  Monthly payments are preferred and there is no cancellation fee for monthly payments.

Rule 2:  Students will enter the Reverence Dance studio quietly when other classes are in session.  They will remove coats, shoes, etc. quietly and place them in the appropriate locations set forth by Reverence Dance Academy(L-Cove with coat hooks).  Students will then remain with their parents in the waiting room or may begin warming up on the designated blue and black mats quietly in order to respect the other classes still in session.  If at anytime, a student does not remain quiet, they may be asked to wait with their family in the waiting room. 

Rule 3:  We hope that parents will feel free to relax and enjoy themselves as well as carry on conversation while their children are in class.  The Reverence Dance Academy waiting room facility was designed with closed circuit video monitoring of both Studio 1 and Studio 2 so that parents may watch their children during class.  Parents are not required to wait on campus while their children are in class.  There will always be an adult supervisor or an adult instructor.

Rule 4:    GOLDEN RULE!   Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.    Respect others.
