24/7 Dance Studio is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Parents with students under the age of 7 must remain in the building during classes. Small children should be taken to the bathroom prior to class to help minimize frequent “potty breaks”. Please do not be late picking up your student, particularly after the last class of the evening. Late pick up fees will be charged at $5.00 per 5 minutes.
Parents, legal guardians of minor students and adult students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on studio property from activity conducted by the student before, during and after class time.

24/7 Dance Studio strives to offer a place of fun and learning in a minimally restrictive environment. However, if disciplinary action is required, the following steps will be followed: 1) The instructor will talk with the student about their behavior 2) The Parent/Guardian of the student will be called and informed of the student’s behavior 3) The director of the Studio will be notified and the student will be suspended from class for one week 4) The executive director will be notified and the student will be expelled from all classes for the remainder of the year. Depending on the severity of the infraction, 24/7 Dance Studio reserves the right to accelerate this process and expel the student without intermediary steps.
