Parent Pick Up /
Egress Options


Dear Parents,

Students in levels 3/3X-Level 6 under the age of 18 may have the option to leave The School building on their own with permission from their guardian.  Egress Forms are available at The School office.

ALL OTHER STUDENTS in Creative movement, Pre-Ballet, Levels 1, 1X, 2, & 2X are not allowed to leave the school building without a parent/guardian.  The School asks that these students have a parent/guardian come into The School building for pick up.  No Children in theses levels are allowed to leave unattended.  This is addressed for the safety and well being of the children.  Please contact The School office if there are any concerns or questions.

Thank you.

Note to Students


NO Ballet Slippers / warmup Booties outside school premises

  1. Streets/sidewalks are very dirty.  This dirt and grime is tracked into the Ballet Center making floors and studio floors dirty and slippery.  Not conducive to dancing.

  2. Ballet slippers wear out quickly on concrete and asphalt.

  3. Studio floors are “sprung.”  Concrete is hard on little feet that only have a ballet slipper for support.
