Drop off/Pick up Procedures

Please drop off participants 5-10 minutes prior to their first class. Punctuality is an expectation in our program. Please pick your child up right when their last class ends. We expect all students to wait inside for their parents to pick them up so they are not waiting outside without supervision. Repeat late pick-ups or pick-ups over 15 minutes past closing are subject to service fees for our staff to stay late with your child. Thank you in advance for dropping off and picking up your student on time.

What to Wear to Class

Please securely fasten your child’s hair for their safety and the safety of others. Students with very short hair (above shoulder length) need to tie their hair back at least half up.

Attendance, Absences & Make-Up Class Policy

Attendance is a vital part of the any successful program. All students registered for class should attend each week, as not to fall behind and to maximize the success of the team/group.

Any student who misses a cheer, dance or tumbling class will be allowed a make-up lesson in a similar class (max 2 per semester.) 

Please note that there are several months within the school year that there are 5 classes for the month instead of the normal 4. Wight Noise Dance Company does not charge extra money for 5 week months! This is an added benefit for being a part of our organization! Thank you for your continued support as we try to keep class pricing as affordable as possible!
