CODE OF CONDUCT
En Avant Dance provides an environment that is supportive, encouraging and conducive to learning. We want all of our students to have and enriching experience. Students will be respectful of their teachers, their classmates and themselves. We expect students to be on time, dress properly and have a good attitude. If problems arise, the student may be asked to sit down or leave the class. For their own safety, students arriving 15 minutes late for class will be asked to watch instead of participate. If a teacher experiences repeated dress code and/or conduct violations, parents will be notified and appropriate actions will be taken.
