we ask that the following rules and guidelines be applied.

Rules and Regulations
1. Class begins and ends on time. 
Please make it a priority to have your child to the studio five to ten minutes before his/her class begins. Students need to be on time so that they can be properly warmed up in order to reduce the chance of injury. The studio opens 15 minutes prior to the 1st class of the day and closes 5 minutes after the last class of the day is finished!

2. Parking.
To keep traffic flowing, please find a parking place in our lot or the Fareway lot. We ask that you do not park on Bedford or in front of the garage at any time.

3. Parents are invited to wait quietly in the lobby area or Dancer Den during class.
Students are required to remain in the studio and not allowed to talk with their parents. Siblings are also welcome in the lobby but must be supervised at all times. The studio is not equipped to handle children who are not able to sit quietly.

7. Class Postponements.
If Sioux Falls Public Schools close due to weather conditions, the studio may also be closed. If it storms in the morning and clears by afternoon, we may still have class.  If there is a storm in the afternoon or evening the studio may close even if school was not canceled. This decision will be based on the road conditions in Sioux Falls. If you live outside of Sioux Falls, you will need to decide if it’s safe for you to bring your child to dance. Please check KELO Closeline or go to our website home page www.britzastudios.com.  We will also post class updates on the BritZa Facebook page. A make up schedule will be emailed to you. If school is closed due to a holiday, please refer to the schedule provided below.

8. Remove your shoes.
In an effort to keep the public areas clean for dance shoes, all students must leave their street shoes at the entry. As the weather becomes inclement, parents, siblings & visitors will also be asked to remove their shoes.
