Student Handbook

 

Here you will find information you’ll need as a student at Everything Goes Dance Studio. Our front desk staff and faculty are always available to answer questions and help with issues like choosing the best classes, getting the proper dance attire and shoes, preparing for class and performances, and improving your dance skills.

 

To Enroll  in Classes: Check out our schedule and fees. Next, phone the studio (525.1000) and set a time to meet with the staff, observe a class (if desired) and take a look around. After you’ve chosen your classes, filled out the forms and paid the registration fee, you’re in! If you’re registering for intermediate or advanced classes, please meet with the teacher to ensure that you’re enrolled at the proper level of study.

 

Students should wear the class uniform as described below.

You may purchase uniform items at a professional dance outlet or online. Students may wear an EGD Studio t-shirt as warm-up gear. Instructors will teach students the proper method of wearing and maintaining dance shoes.
