Dropping Off/Arrival
Dancers should arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the start of their scheduled class. For the safety of your child, please ensure that you do not leave the parking lot until you have seen them enter the studio. Independent drivers should park in the Academy of Dance parking lot whenever possible and only park on Piper Street when no parking space at the studio is available.

Picking Up/Leaving the Studio
Dancers should be picked up promptly after class and are required to wait inside the studio until their ride arrives. We ask that parents come inside the studio to pick up their dancer whenever possible as our parking lot can be very busy in between classes. We will not permit dancers waiting for rides to wait outside. Dancers who are independent drivers are encouraged to lock their vehicle and to use the buddy system when leaving the studio, making sure your fellow dancer gets inside their vehicle safely before departing.
