Arrival & Dismissal Procedures:
To ensure the safety of our students and avoid parking lot chaos, please do NOT wait in your car for students at the front entrance, blocking traffic.

  Students under the age of 10 must be escorted into the building.
  Students 11 and older may be dropped off in front of the building, please wait until the student has entered the building before pulling away. Drop offs are limited to 30 seconds.

  All students must be picked up inside of the building unless the student provided their own transportation to the studio. Parents/Guardians must park their vehicle in the parking lot.
  Parking spaces directly in front of the building are reserved for BW staff.

Facility Hours:
Doors Open: The doors to the studio will be unlocked 30 minutes prior to the start of class.
Doors Close: The doors to the studio will lock 10 minutes following the last class. Students must be picked up promptly as supervision is not provided.

Class Observation:
Parents/Guardians are welcome to observe class if they are seated BEFORE class begins. Parents/Guardians with children under the age of 18 or who do not wish to observe are asked to wait in the lobby. Observers in the studio are limited to 10 per class, on a first come/first serve basis.

Lobby & Front Door:
Respect fellow students and parents when waiting in the lobby. Due to the layout of the building, voices carry and a quiet atmosphere in the lobby is appreciated in the studios.

Please keep your child at home under the following conditions:

  If your child has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, please keep your child home until he/she is fever free without the use of fever reducing medication for at least 24 hours. Sending your child to class with a fever exposes his/her fellow students and instructor to illness.
  If your child vomits or has diarrhea in the 12 hours before class, please keep your child home.
  If your child has nasal drainage that is green or yellow consistently throughout the day, your child should see a physician for a possible infection and should not attend class.
  If your child is recovering from surgery or other type of procedure that requires pain medication stronger than Tylenol or Advil (such as a narcotic), your child should not be at class.
  If your child is too ill to go outside for outdoor activities or to the gym for play, please keep your child at home.

Photography and/or Videography of any portion of the class is prohibited, unless authorized by the instructor or Artistic Director. Publication of authorized recordings on any platform is prohibited unless explicit written authorization is given by the Artistic Director. Failure to follow this policy is subject to dismissal from class.
