Welcome to Rae Studios,
In preparation for your first dance class, below are a few Studio Ediquette, general rules, and policies to take notes of to help provide a safe and happy environment.:
We strive to make all clients feel welcome and comfortable in our studios. We expect all students to extend the same welcoming spirit to one another and our staff. We are a community using dance and fitness to find inspiration in each other and within ourselves in a happy and safe environment.
Go jewelry-free. Obtrusive jewelry is potentially dangerous to you and others.
Please respect everyone around you and wear deodorant.
Listen while your instructor is talking. That means no talking while they’re talking. Not even quietly to your neighbor.
Please turn off and stow away your cell phone. Putting it on vibrate can still make distracting noise.
Don’t film or take pictures in class, unless instructed. Always ask your teacher’s permission before recording or photographing any portion of your dance class.
Pay attention at all times, especially when waiting for your turn. You don’t want to get caught slouching or looking bored. And don’t ever sit down unless you’re asked to.
Stay for the entire class. It’s always best to stay for the entire duration of the class, but if you must leave early, please speak with the teacher beforehand, and make your exit as quick and discreet as possible.
No ins-and-outs. Stay in the studio for the entirety of class. Leaving and coming back into class can be distracting to your instructor and fellow dancers.
Always arrive on time. If you can’t avoid being late, enter very quietly and wait for the OK from your teacher to enter the dance floor. After class, be sure to apologize for your late arrival. Please note that; to be respectful to other students, the instructor, and to prevent injuries, anyone who arrives more than 10 minutes past the beginning of class WILL NOT BE ADMITTED INTO CLASS.
Let advanced students stand in front. Whether it's your first time to the studio / class, or new to fitness classes, avoid the front of the room, unless you know the combinations or forms; even if you arrived first.
Demonstrate good spatial awareness. This includes giving the instructor space, but don’t crowd those in the back of the room to do so.
Try your best. If you make the mistake of taking a dance class that’s above your skill level, never walk out of a class or sit down in frustration—hang in there and try your best, no one will fault you for that.
Be courteous and respectful. At the end of class, applaud and thank the instructor.
No heels in Studio 2. Appropriate ballroom heels only. All heels must use heel protectors. If you don't have your own heel protectors, they can be purchased at the front.
No food or drinks (except water) allowed inside the studio. For the safety of our students, no glassware inside the studio.
We keep found items for 2-3 weeks before donating them to a local charity. If you forgot something, please check with the studio hosts or contact us here, so we can reconnect you with your item(s). We are not responsible for lost items.
Due to limited space, we highly encourage everyone to register early to secure your spot in class.. While we allow drop-ins, please note that we can't guarantee you a spot, if the class is full. If you are unable to attend class, please make sure to early cancel your reservation.
If a class is full, you can add yourself to the waitlist. Waitlist management is automated through MindBody, so please only add yourself to a waitlist if you are confident you can make the class. You may be taken off the waitlist and automatically added to a class up to 60 minutes prior to the start of class. You will then be notified by email or text, if you opt-in to receive updates on your MindBody account. In the event that a registered student doesn't arrive on-time for the scheduled class, the spot will be released to waitlisted student.
Please be aware that when registering for dance and fitness classes, you will be waiving and releasing all claims of injuries you might sustain from participating in these classes taught at Rae Studios or lost belongings. This agreement is by and between Rae Studio’s – Rae Model & Talent Agency, LLC facility, its owners, instructors and the individual whose name is registered for this class.
