What happens when the weather gets bad?
Shuffles does not like cancelling classes, but we care that you and your dancer are safe getting to and from class! General rule of thumb, if the Shawano School District cancels school, we follow suit & don't have classes.
If the weather gets bad after school is out, please call before you head into class. We post cancelled classes on our Facebook page and in our voice mail box. Sometimes we only have classes for half of the night. For those of you coming from out of town, please use your judgement. If roads are bad & we haven't cancelled classes, please don't come into town ;)
What should my dancer wear to class?*
Please wear comfortable clothing that does not drag on floor or prohibit movements.
NO JEANS! Please wear shorts or leotards under skirts.
ALL HAIR MUST BE PULLED BACK SO IT ISN'T IN DANCERS FACE!
NO GUM or Candy!
Please do not bring in toys, jewelry, etc. to the dance studio.
*if you are doing the 11-14 ballet class or the 15-18 ballet class, pink tights and black leotards are mandatory! No pants or baggy clothes! Spandex shorts pants are acceptable and form-fitted long sleeved shirts are acceptable for warm-ups as long as they are form fitting! Ballet skirts are acceptable. No yoga pants! Hair must be pulled back in bun or ponytail. The cleaner you look the cleaner you dance!
