Observation Week

Observation weeks are established not only to allow the students to demonstrate their progress to their parents/guardians, but also to distribute important information. Dates for observation are scheduled four times a year and are listed on the enclosed calendar and on our website. These dates will also be posted in the studio as the observation week draws near. Mark these dates on your personal calendars and make every effort to attend. If it is necessary to bring younger siblings to the classes, please be considerate of not disrupting the class in progress. We love initiating our babies to TOC, but must insist that parents remove children from the classroom who are not quiet and controlled. Observation weeks are scheduled for full year (not session) programs.

Emergency Closings

In case of an emergency closing, there will be a message left on the studio phone voice mail and a message posted on the Touch of Class website homepage, In the event of emergency closings, classes will not be rescheduled; however the individual student will be permitted to make-up the class in a class equal in level to the one canceled within 1 month of the missed class. It is the sole responsibility of the student to make arrangements for these classes. No tuition is refunded due to inclement weather.

Websites

All information concerning schedules and calendar are posted on our website. Our site functions as a way to keep students and parents informed and up to date on studio events and activities. Please visit this site often to receive current studio information as it is updated regularly.

Need Dance Help

2006-07-16 14:44:14 by PDXDuck1983

Hi everybody --
I'm wondering if there is another forum to get in touch with local dancers/dance teachers in Portland (aside from posting an ad). Here's why I ask . . .
I'm a relatively new dancer and have fallen in love with the art (ballet and tap mostly). Because of an erratic work schedule I'm finding it tough to take a regular class but private lessons are also pretty pricey . .
What I'd LIKE to find is a studio that could use an extra set of hands a few days a week . . .where I could do odd jobs around the facility in exchange for some help with my ballet and/or tap
