Dress Code & Policy

What you need for class

Students are required to wear appropriate dance clothing and shoes for varying disciplines. All clothing that is worn in class must allow the instructor to clearly view the dancer’s body. Please make sure hair is pulled back neatly off the face. NO JEWELRY OR WATCHES are allowed in the studio. Street clothes are not acceptable such as jeans, please. However, at ATJ, we understand the added costs associated, comfortable clothing is recommended such as leggings, stretchy pants, and appropriate wearing tops. It is the responsibility of the student and parent to make sure they have appropriate clothing and shoes for dance class.

COMMITTMENT & CONDUCT

All That Jazz Dance Co.’s regular classes run from September to May.

Students are required to register and attend for the entire 9 months, as classes are progressive.

If for some reason a student can not attend class the office must be notified as soon as possible. Please email allthatjazzchatham@gmail.com

Students are required to arrive to class on time with their hair neatly pulled back out of their eyes and with proper dance attire.

NO JEWELRY OR WATCHES are allowed in the studio as they can cause harm to both the student wearing them and the other students in the class.

Chewing gum is not allowed, as it is a choking hazard.

PLEASE NOTE: Students in the 9-month program have until October 31st to withdraw from a class. Students who withdraw by this date will not be obligated to pay for the rest of the year, but do not get their costume fee refunded. Students who quit after this day are still obligated to all tuition fees for the remainder of the dance year.
