It is not allowed to copy, modify, alter, and/or enhance these materials for any purpose whatsoever, unless specific written permission is obtained from I LOVE DANCING (ILD).
We strive to keep a clean and tidy dance studio not only to create an enjoyable atmosphere, but also for the safety and comfort for all dancers on our floor. – Leave personal items only in the wardrobe area. This is by the reception and your belongings be safely stowed. No bags or coats are allowed on the floor as they may become a tripping hazard to dancers. I Love Dancing Studio does not accept any liability for your personal belongings.
- No street shoes are allowed on the floor, as the outside dirt can damage the surface of our floor and create sticking or slipping hazards to those dancing on the floor. Bring your dance shoes separately to change into when you arrive.
- No food, drink, or chewing gum on the floor during class or during breaks
- see the above note about sticking and slipping hazards. – Smoking and pets are prohibited on ILD premises as prescribed by local, state and federal laws
- Dress code: Any comfortable clothing that allows for movement is acceptable. Although dancing is an athletic endeavor, tennis shoes or running shoes are not the best type of footwear for dancing as rubber soles prevent smooth movement across the floor. We suggest that you wear dress shoes that you might wear out to a club for dancing or to a wedding. For woman, shoes that have heel support and an ankle strap are best. For more committed dancers, shoes made specifically for dancing can be purchased
- speak to your teacher about the best options and the types of shoes we sell.
5. Dancing is physical exercise
You participate at your own risk and it is your responsibility to consult your physician to confirm your fitness capabilities before beginning any dance lessons. A doctors’ note may be required to begin a class if you have special physical concerns, or to return to activity after an absence from class due to injury, illness, or during pregnancy. Always make your teacher aware of any physical limitations or concerns that you may have.
6. Arrival and Attendance:
- Class will start promptly at the designated time. – Arriving a bit earlier to change your shoes and prepare yourself for class is suggested. Arriving late to class can be disruptive to other students, distracting to the focus of a learning atmosphere and difficult on the groups’ progression in learning. If you arrive later than 15 minutes past the start time of class, it is up to your teachers’ discretion as to whether or not you will be allowed to join the class on the floor, or be required to only observe.
- Notifying us of missing a class, or if you are running late is an appropriate courtesy. Please contact us to let us know your circumstances.
