Dance Class Rules:
1. No chewing gum, food or drink, toys, electronic devices, or street shoes of any kind in class.
2. Good manners and behavior are expected of all students (and parents.). Any student who behaves inappropriately in class, the hall or locker room first will be given a warning. If there is no change in inappropriate behavior, the parent or guardian will be contacted. During the class it is the teacher’s job to correct inappropriate behavior. If there is ever a concern, please bring problems discretely to the attention of the director (Ella Magruder) i.e. outside of class when students or other parents are not within hearing distance.
3. No running, chasing, or other out of control, boisterous behavior in the halls or locker room. Parents/guardians are expected to enforce this.
4. No student is allowed in dance studio classroom without the teacher present.
Parents and children are invited to walk on campus, visit the bookshop and SBC library. Young children may be interested in children’s room in the campus library and for a minimal fee anyone can join Friends of the SBC Library and obtain a Sweet Briar College library card. Families are welcome to eat in Bistro (located in next door Williams Gym), purchase snacks in the bookshop café, or have a sit down evening meal in the Sweet Briar dining hall.
Pick up: All students must be picked up promptly after class. If you have an emergency and face a delay, please call 381-6952 (dance hall phone), 381-6150 or 381-6349 ASAP.
