    Young students need to maintain their focus in class, therefore it is very  important to keep distractions to a minimum. Please have your child take  care of any restroom needs prior to class. We know parents enjoy watching their youngsters, but we ask that you please not stand at the studio doorway during class. Young students end up focusing on the doorway rather than  the teacher. Teachers often invite parents in at the end of class to show  what they’ve learned.


    We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to having your student in our academy!
