Please remove your shoes and place them on the available shoe rack at the door upon entering the waiting area of the studio.
Several HSDA students take more than 1 class per day and may need a snack/meal during their break time at the studio and do homework. In the past the studios have been left messy, particularly with food, drink and coffee cups left around the waiting area. It is expected that any mess made (spilling crumbs, food, drink and left over coffee cups) will be cleaned up by whoever made the mess and that belongings are kept tidy. Not doing so results in a messy receptions area, making it difficult for the next set of students to warm up and stretch properly. Spilled crumbs, food, drink and left over coffee cups can lead to unsanitary conditions and can attract pests. Students, siblings and their guests are accountable to help maintain studio cleanliness and keeping it orderly by picking up after themselves and respecting studio property. HSDA maintains a no junk food, no pop in the studio/reception/waiting area policy. This type of food offers no nutritional value required to sustain a dancer’s physical and mental energy. Make a healthier choice: water instead of pop or “energy drinks”, veggies, fruits and raisons instead of candy, yogurt or homemade sandwich instead of chips or pizza.
