Dancers are to wait quietly in the proper area until they are called into the studio by the instructor. For safety reasons, dancers should not be in the studio without an instructor being present. Parent viewing areas will remain closed for the 2022/2023 season in order to control the number of people in the studio and keep our environment safe and free from germs. There will be parent viewing dates scheduled throughout the season by invitation. Absolutely no outdoor footwear is allowed in the dance studio. Water is allowed in the studios; however, food, other drinks and gum are not permitted. YDA is a peanut/nut free studio so we especially ask that you leave any products that contain or may contain peanuts/nuts at home. We appreciate your consideration in this matter as we have many students with severe food allergies. Dancers are to eat in the designated area at each location.

Important note about respect for your teachers and fellow dancers:

Dance is a discipline and there are certain behaviours that are unacceptable. Students are expected to conduct themselves in a proper and respectful manner while in the studio. Disruptive behaviour may result in disciplinary action up to and including removal from the program. Proper dancer manners are posted around the studios. Please make yourself aware of these.
