Children should be at the studio at least 10 minutes before their class begins to warm up. This is especially crucial for the more advanced students who will need a longer warm up period. If the changing area is busy, children are permitted to use the back of the studio for warm up purposes provided they do so quietly and do not distract the children in class.
Children are expected to be courteous and kind, not only to their teachers but also to their peers. If they are late for class they should make their excuses and quickly continue with the class. If children are constantly late for class they could be withheld from entering examinations or participation in performances, as it is very disrupting for the other children in the group and they will always be falling behind with their progress.
