PARKING

As this space is shared with other programs, we ask that you please pull all the way up in the spaces. Parking is limited so additional options for parking are:  

  • Park along the road that is parallel to Broadway (the road is actually called Broadway as well but there is no street sign for it). From St. Matthew's go through the light but bear to the right a bit onto the side road.
  • Hillside Ave - next to the High School (there may be some street parking along that street)
  • Chauncy Lane - coming from St. Matthew's, turn right at the first intersection. Follow road along playground and park by the tennis courts (cut through the park to walk over to class)
  • FYI- Parking is permitted after 3:30pm on Farragut Avenue in front of the church.

CLASS GUIDELINES

No cell phone use during the class: To respect the privacy of the other students, we ask that there are no photos or videos taken during class.


Food, drinks and toys (including pacifiers, bottles, and transitional objects) should not be brought into the class, as they serve as distractions to others and are not easily shared. No eating during the class. Children will quickly learn the classroom routine.

Please make every effort to arrive on time. The first few minutes of class are especially important for your child to explore, ramble and socialize BEFORE the teacher begins the class. Omitting this valuable “free” time is sometimes frustrating for a child and makes it difficult to join in the “structured time”.


Drop-Off Classes:

  • Please be sure that the dancers have a chance to use the bathroom before class begins. This will help eliminate disruptions during class...thank you!
  • In the drop-off classes, parents and caregivers are asked to wait outside the studio during class.


Tots/Toddler Classes:

  • Be sure to remember that each child will respond to the class in their own unique way. Some children explore and move constantly while others may need extra reassurance by being held. Follow your child’s initiative: hold them or give them distance as they require but always remain an active participant yourself.
  • You are your child’s most important teacher and example.  Through our own (parent, caregiver and teacher) example we teach the advantages of careful listening and focus, kindness to others, joyful participation, and appreciation for everyone’s efforts. Your willing example in the adult/child classes will help to ensure a climate of accomplishment and fun.
