CORE Dance Policies

We appreciate your cooperation in upholding the following policies at CORE DANCE for the benefit of all concerned.


  • Please arrive on time at the designated class time, ready to dance. For safety reasons, dancers who arrive more than 10 minutes late will need to observe class.
  • Dance instruction begins 5 minutes into each class.
  • Dancers in ballet classes must wear their hair in a bun. For all other classes, hair must be secured off the face and neck.
  • During class, dancers may ask instructors questions. All other talking is inappropriate.
  • Please be respectful and considerate of instructors and fellow students.
  • Disruptive behavior may result in temporary loss of class participation privileges. There may be certain cases where we reserve the right to offer future services.  We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to threats, bullying, or acts of violence.
  • Ask instructor for permission to leave the classroom. After class, younger dancers will remain in the dance room until their parents arrive. CORE Dance Studio is not responsible for students once they have left the Dance Studio.
  • No food, drinks, candies or gum is allowed in the dance rooms or down the hallway. Closed water bottles are acceptable and encouraged. All food must be eaten in the changing room or outside. No cell phone use during class. Please keep all cell phones on vibrate.
  • Lost & Found boxes are located in the changing room. Unclaimed items left in the container will be donated to a local charity four times throughout the course of the year.


  • Please do not interrupt classes to speak with instructors. Contact Stacy Estrada or Leslie Baumberger ( with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our instructors, classes or placement. Please contact the office to make an appointment to speak with the instructor.
  • Please make sure the dancer arrives on time, ready to dance.
  • Tuition is due the 1st of each month. We appreciate your promptness! A $15 late fee will apply if payment is received after the 7th of the month.
  • Please complete an add/drop form in the front office to make a change to your dance schedule. Dancers must be officially enrolled in order to take each class. Your tuition will remain the same until an add/drop form has been received in the front office.
  • Photography or videotaping of the students strictly prohibited. It is not always easy for another student or parent to discern when a photograph or a video is being taken of them or another student. It is a distraction to the dancers, instructors, and class, as a whole. Please respect the privacy and comfort of all involved and reserve your videotaping and photography for outside of the studio.
  • Parents are welcome to observe any class their child is participating in. All observations are done outside the classroom on the television screen in the hallway.
  • CORE reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment. Refunds will be provided for students that have prepaid for any canceled class.
  • We reserve the right to refuse service
  • Please call in advance to check on the status of particular class. Cancelled classes are posted on the CORE website.
  • Please “like” us on Facebook so you can keep up to date with all our changes. We stay current on Facebook.
