We are committed to educate our students, model behaviors, and help dancers grow with love and respect in this program. If for any reason a student does not meet the expectations outlined above, Panaga Dance Centre enforces a 3-strike policy with regard to students misbehaving during class.


– Strike 1  a warning; student is still able to participate in dance class.
– Strike 2  a in class time-out, student will be asked to sit to the side of the classroom and observe. The instructor will determine the length of time for the time-out.
– Strike 3 student will be asked to sit down at the side and wait until the class is over. In the case of a Strike 3, the teacher will talk to both student and parent about behavior issues.

GENERAL POLICIES

  • Please be prompt in dropping off and picking up your child.

  • No gum chewing in the class at any time

  • Every child needs to bring their water bottle, but No Food is allowed.

  • Observation is permitted from the waiting room windows when the instructor chooses to open the curtains. Please refrain from peeking through the door or opening the curtains yourself. This is a distraction to teachers and students.

Don’t forget that we are always here to help and will happily answer any questions you may have.
