Please read the following studio policies carefully. We follow these policies strictly.
Students must be a minimum of 15 years of age to participate. Persons under the age of 18 require written consent from a parent or guardian. They will need to come to the studio with you when you check in for your first class to sign a release form and show proper ID.
ALCOHOL AND SUBSTANCES:
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE CONSUMED BEFORE ANY PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES.
If you are intoxicated you will not be allowed to participate in any activities, will be asked to leave the studio, and will not be receive a refund.
*Additional note – with the passing if the legalization of marijuana in Massachusetts, the same policy applies to this as is does to alcohol. If the instructor has any doubt about your condition they reserve the right to exclude you from the class.
Class levels are designed to give students the maximum experience for his or her ability. If, at any time, the instructor believes that a level is inappropriate for a student, the instructor CAN DENY THE CLASS to the student. This is for your safety, and out of respect for the other people in the class. Please read the class descriptions for level requirements and pre-requisites. If you have questions about whether a level is appropriate for you, please ask your instructor, as it is up to them to grant level advancement.
While we encourage advanced students to attend a lower level class once in awhile to brush up on basics, those levels are reserved for those in that level, and an advanced student may be bumped from that class if a lower level student would like to take it. In addition, please be mindful of the abilities of the other participants and follow what is being taught in class. If the instructor feels that you are distracting other students by doing more advanced moves, or not following the day’s curriculum, you may be asked to leave.
Please remember, these rules are for the safety and respect of others around you.
