  • The lobby is for sitting, observing and visiting only. When students are not in class, parents are responsible for their children's behavior and safety.  Children are not permitted to play in the lobby at any time. For everyone's safety, the lobby floors must remain clear of toys and other materials.

  • No street shoes in the dance studio.
  • Parents must walk children 12 and under to and from the classroom.

  • Students must be picked up on time after class.  Ace Dance Academy is not responsible for students outside of class time.
  • Family and friends are asked to remain outside of the classroom at all times.  This is beneficial for the student and class progression because it provides a safe and non-distracted environment (see Observation below).
  • Please keep conversation in the lobby positive and up-beat.  Negativity does not provide for a healthy environment.

In order to keep distractions to a minimum, only students are allowed in the classroom. There are observation windows located in the lobby. You are welcome to discreetly observe as long as it does not distract your child or other class members.

Generally scheduled in the weeks prior to our winter and spring breaks and the final week of our summer session, family and friends are invited to enter the classroom for class observation and a special presentation. During this week, students may wear any special dance attire to class. Family and friends are welcome to take photographs and videotape the presentation. If you would like additional information on how your child is progressing, you can schedule an appointment through the office.

Attendance is taken every week. If you have to miss a class, please contact the office to let us know. There are no refunds for classes not taken, but missed classes may be made up within four weeks of the student's absence. Makeups must be scheduled in advance with the office and must be in a similar level and age group for the student. Ace Dance Academy limits makeup classes to four per school year session and three per summer session.


To dance is to be out of yourself.
Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.
