General Studio Information

We strive to keep the studio as Healthy an Environment as possible. If you or a member of your family
have been sick and/or display symptoms of Covid-19 or have been in contact with someone with
Covid-19 symptoms, you are restricted from entering the studio or attending classes. Further, if your
child is unwell for any other reason, please keep them at home.


We have developed a “Safety Drop and Dance” policy for all dancers.

  • We ask that parents and guardians of dancers ages 8 and up not enter the lobby unless absolutely necessary.
  • Parents and guardians of dancers ages 3 – 7 should accompany their child to class and then leave the building.
  • As dancers become more comfortable with their surroundings, we ask that if you do not need to enter the building, please don’t.
  • Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes prior to class time.
  • Please be on time for pick up.


We are very excited to have so many students in the studio. We are working to
create a new format for Classroom Observation Days. Stayed tuned for more info!


Parking is limited at peak times. Russell AV is running operations from behind their building at the rear of the property. Please be careful when coming around the back of the dance studio building. Don’t forget to give Bill, Jon and Darren a wave!

  • Please refrain from parking in the lots of our neighbours. They will have you towed.
  • Please do not park on the sides of the building. Parking is avilaable on the street and in the front and rear of the building.
  • Please be aware of your surroundings. The parking lot can be busy so, PLEASE, watch for pedestrians.


Change rooms are meant for changing and should not be used as “hangouts”. It is important
that these remain quiet spaces so as to not interrupt classes. Please do not come to class extra
early to spend time in the change room.
