    Expectations of Students

    • Donita Ballet School is a professional school. From the beginning students are required to commit to its high level of training and attendance.
    • Donita Ballet School understands that not every student who enrols in dance classes wishes to be a professional dancer. However, the quality of teaching that Donita Ballet School provides gives the students the option to pursue a professional dancing career.
    • For ballet, students should wear:
      • black leotard
      • pink tights
      • pink soft ballet shoes
    • Hair must be tied in a bun if long enough. If short, it must be neatly pinned back.
    • Students are expected to attend classes regularly, as they will be preparing for the annual recital.
    • Parents and students must avoid making any plans that would interfere with dance classes, rehearsals and recitals. Absences slow down the progress of the student and are very disruptive to the class.
    • Replacement classes are allowed in case of sickness.
    • No refunds will be given for classes not attended.
