emjaez dance studio has a zero tolerance policy for bullying. emjaez students and parents/guardians are expected to conduct themselves in the highest form of dignity, respect and morality.
A dancer may not compete or train with emjaez dance studio if he or she is on another competitive dance team that competes in mainstream dance studio competitions. There is no other sport where an athlete competes on two different teams against her or himself, as it is a conflict of interest. We work hard to maintain a dedicated, positive, close team and family environment in our studio.
Please make sure to notify the studio of any type of medical/health concerns that could inhibit the student from or while taking class. This includes any illnesses and/or injuries (i.e., sprains, concussions, pulled muscles, etc.). Dancers are encouraged to observe their classes during recovery. Tuition is sill applied, as students are still learning through observation. Long-term/extended injuries with a doctors’ note should be discussed with Mary Jo to determine options for a recovery/tuition plan.
If you must miss a class due to illness, etc., please call the studio to notify us that you will not be attending class. Missed classes can be made up within one month. All students must give 24-hour advance notice that they will be making up the missed class. Please call the studio for the appropriate make-up class times.
