Must see Michelle during her office hours and fill out form. Please also note effective (11/15/19) anyone who fills out a withdraw form must re-enroll as a student to begin taking classes, a registration fee will need to be paid when enrolling.

_________ Starsteps Dance Center follows the Caldwell County Schools’ schedule for Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, MLK Day and Spring Break. Starsteps will not close for teacher workdays.

_________ It is our belief that students work more productively when not observed. Teachers need the full attention of your child to teach effectively. We are proud of our teachers and teaching methods so parents may check on students through observation window at any time. Keep in mind not to distract or disrupt students during class. Please do not block hallway as classes are letting out because children can become scared or frightened in tight spaces.
Each level of dance requires specific attire as noted below. No jewelry. Please put your students name in all dance shoes and attire. All students must wear hair pulled up and away from the the face, so that it is not a distraction to the dancer. Place a pack of hair bands or clips in your students bag to facilitate this during practice.
