Be courteous and respectful in the studio at all times.
Keep your voices low and be respectful of classes in session.
Keep your belongings organized and contained.
Pick up all trash and return borrowed items to their proper location.
Limit food consumption and dispose of trash courteously.
Do not enter classrooms or open closed doors without permission.
Walk quietly through the halls.
Check-in at the Front Desk or with your instructor for each class.
Bring a water bottle and towel to all classes.
Make sure sneakers are clean (no dirt/rocks) for the protection of our floors.
Classes with less than 3 participants may be cut to 30 minutes.

Put all equipment away properly.
Female dancers Levels I & Up are encouraged to store their belongings in the Dressing Room or lobby cubbies. Gentlemen may use the lobby or Men’s Restroom cubbies. Combo Classes take their dance bags into the studios. Put dancer’s name on all belongings. Ladies are kindly asked to use the Dressing Room for changing NOT the restroom. Dressing Room cubbies are available for rent on a first come, first serve basis as a fundraiser for the ADFS Company, Inc. Cubbies are private property and should not be touched without permission.
Arrive 5-10 minutes before class with proper hair, clothing, and shoes per dress code policy. Cover-ups should always be worn over dance clothes when entering and exiting the building.
Do NOT wear dance shoes outside. Wearing dance shoes outside ruins the shoes and our special dance floors!
Dancers should use the restroom BEFORE class. The use of the restroom is discouraged during class, unless it is an emergency.
Water bottles are permitted in the dance studio on the bookshelf. Water fountain breaks will NOT be given. No juice, Gatorade, or soda. Please label water bottles with your dancer’s name.
Dancers are dismissed by their teacher; do not enter the classroom to pick up your child. We use separate entrance and exit doors for Studios A & B to reduce hallway traffic. Please help your dancer line-up at the correct door.
