** Voted "Best Dance School" in 2017, 2018 and 2019 by Sun Sailor Readers! **
GENERAL INFORMATION & SCHOOL POLICIES
Our parking lot is located behind our building. The parking lot next to our building (west side) is NOT for Deuxmensions' clients, the owners will tow if you park there. There is also free street parking available both in front of the building as well as the side streets.
GENERAL SCHOOL POLICIES:
No beverages allowed in the building, other than water
No smoking anywhere on school grounds
No running or playing in the hallways or dressing room. It is disruptive to classes
We welcome families to stay in the lobby during class, but ask that the noise level be kept to a minimum. Please silence electronic devices. Our front studio's walls do not meet the ceiling, and therefore lobby noise travels into the studio during class.
We strive to get important news out to you in a variety of methods. We will post the most current and relevant information on our Facebook page. Most of our communication is done via email, so please be sure we have an email address on file for you. Other means of communication are posting reminders on Green Room bulletin boards and studio doors, and MAIL SLOTS which are in a filing cabinet in the Green Room. Information placed in MAIL SLOTS will be filed under your child's last name.
We try out best to begin all classes ON TIME.
See below for tardiness policy.
Visitors are not allowed in the classroom other than
Visiting Days, or by special arrangement.
Food and gum are not allowed in the studios,
but may be eaten in the Green Room/lobby area.
No street shoes allowed on studio floors
No hanging on the ballet barres or touching the mirrors
The beginning barre and warm-up exercises are the most important part of class. Muscles not properly warmed up are susceptible to injury. Students arriving more than 15 minutes late may be asked to observe for the day.
ABSENCES AND MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY
If a student must miss a class, it is recommended they do a make-up class as close to the missed class as possible. Please check with your child's instructor for the most appropriate make-up class and time.
CLASS ATTENDANCE AND CLASS CANCELLATION POLICY
If ever there is only one student in attendance, we reserve the right to cancel class that day, or to teach a half hour private lesson. Occasionally, classes need to be cancelled for other reasons. Any cancelled class is eligible for a make-up class.
CLASS WITHDRAWAL POLICY
Quarterly tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE after the first class of each quarter. Consideration will be taken in extreme or special circumstances and is done so at the discretion of the school directors.
SNOW DAY POLICY
We tend to follow the same procedure as the St. Louis Park, Minneapolis and Edina public schools. However, we recommend you confirm whether your dancer has class before traveling to the studio. In the event of inclement weather after school hours, or on a weekend, you can find cancellation information by calling our main line at 952-926-7542, tuning into KARE 11 TV (or kare11.com) or check our Facebook page. We also make every effort to email all families affected by class cancellations. Final decisions are made by 2:00pm on weekdays, and 8:00am on weekends.
