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 fees, 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.

 

Dance Class Attire

Note: Please purchase all dance shoes at professional dancewear outlets (Queen of Hart’s Dance Boutique or Show Biz Dancewear in OKC). Please do not purchase shoes from Target, Walmart, etc, as these shoes are made for play and not dance. Consult a teacher if you need guidance.

General Appearance

Dancewear should be clean, well maintained, and modest and the proper shoes should be worn for each class. Please do not wear jewelry to class. Do not wear panties underneath leotards. NO GUM! Instructors reserve the right to dismiss a student from class if they are not dressed and prepared properly.
