TDI Dance School Policies

It is important to please check the website regularly to keep updated and informed on all news & events throughout the School year.

ANNUAL YEAR END PERFORMANCE/RECITAL

The Dance Institute is proud to present its end of the year production at the Markham Theatre for Performing Arts. As Dance is a performing art, ALL students participate in this production to enhance their training and performance experience. There are no rehearsal fees for the recital.

Tickets will go on sales in May. All ticket sales are final, no refunds or exchanges.
Dates for the 2019 Annual Year End Performance are May 24 – 25.

HAIR & UNIFORMS

Students are required to attend all classes in proper dance attire. Hair should always be neat, tidy and pulled off the face. For all Ballet classes long hair is to be worn in a bun; in all other classes please wear long hair in a ponytail. Please find specific uniform requirements on the “What To Wear” page.

ATTENDANCE

It is much appreciated if students arrive to class on time, as it is disturbing for students and teachers when students are late. If students are continually late or absent for class we will notify you by phone call to make any necessary changes to your schedule. To achieve success students must make every effort to attend class, especially during the time leading to the Year End performance.
