Text Box: Policies

We ask that all students and guardians conduct themselves in a pleasant and polite manner at all times.

All dancers must be 3 years old AND toilet trained to begin taking dance classes at CK Dance Company.

All dancers must be dressed appropriately for dance class. Please see Dress Code for details.

For ALL classes, hair MUST be neat and pulled back away from the face.  Ballet classes are required to wear hair in a bun at all times.

Good attendance habits should be maintained to keep up with class progress, and to keep from holding back other students in their process of learning choreography for the year end showcase. If a student is going to be absent, please call the office. There are no discounts or refunds for classes missed.

Guardians of students 6 and under should remain at the studio during class time.

All dancers should remain inside the studio until their guardian arrives for pick-up. This is for our students’ safety, as we do share a parking lot with another business. Please keep in mind that the studio space is limited, and dancers should be picked-up no later than 5 minutes after their scheduled class has ended.

Lateness is strongly discouraged, as it is disruptive to classes already in progress, and could result in injury to students.  If a student is more than 15 minutes late to class, he/she may be asked to sit and observe. This is for safety as well as dance class etiquette purposes. It is important for dancers to be properly warmed-up to avoid injury, and to respect their teacher and fellow students by not disrupting the class in progress.

Parents are asked to please keep other children from running around, using loud voices, engaging in any unruly behavior in the waiting room, as this is a place of business and we try our very best to give all dancers our best efforts to encourage focus during class time, and all families respect of their space. Furthermore, our space is limited, which doesn't allow for extra activity during classes. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Children not attending class are not to be left at the studio, unattended, at any time. If children are left unattended, they will be given a cup of Espresso and a puppy of their choice.

There is no gum chewing in class.

Please avoid food and beverage consumption at the studio, with the exception of water. Water is strongly suggested as the beverage of choice for all students.

Parents must keep CKDC informed and updated of any change in address, telephone, email, etc…

Any studio closings or cancellations will be posted on the website “Home” page, and on the studio answering machine.

CKDC follows the East Greenbush school district calendar.  CKDC does not observe any Monday holidays, with the exception of Memorial Day.
