Does RDC have a dress code?

Yes – RDC has a dress code – Please see below for basic information.

Does RDC enforce dress code?

Yes – Revolution Dance Center enforces a strict dress code to promote safety, discipline and uniformity in its classes. Proper dress allows instructors to view proper body alignment and muscle use. Dancers who do not dress appropriately in class will be issued a reminder card. If more than one incident occurs, dancer will be invited to observe class or go home. Parents may be called.
Dance shoes should not be worn outside the studio at any time.

For the safety of our dancers, we ask that NO JEWELRY be worn inside the classroom.

Please note that Dancers not respecting the Studio Dress Code will (1) be given a reminder card and (2) asked to observe class with no make up being issued.

Do you have placement classes?

Why Should My Child Be Evaluated?

Every studio has different class level structures, so if you have had previous instruction elsewhere those class “levels” are not necessarily comparable to RDCs level structure. Students with prior dance experience are evaluated upon arrival at Revolution Dance Center by one of our dance discipline directors so that they can be placed in the correct level based on RDC’s teaching methods and student progression. We believe it is extremely important that your child gets the very best training so they can grow at their speed. We want our students to be challenged but not frustrated or overwhelmed.

Class Placement
Students are placed in classes according to what they have accomplished (the skills that they have learned) during the years they have studied dance. Dedication and natural ability are also considered. When a new student transfers to our studio, it may be advisable for the student to attend several different types of classes in order to determine which dance style class is the best fit.  After that class, your child will be recommended for a class level based on the skills, terminology and performance ability they have already achieved. Regardless of age, dancers in each level class will be at the same dance level. Dancers are not “stuck” in any level for a specific length of time. Dancers may be reevaluated at any time during the year and may be moved to a higher level during the year. Some dancers develop skills at a quicker pace, so we want to make sure they are challenged and guided to reach their highest potential. Directors have specific schedule of placement classes at the Front Desk.

For more information about our Placement Classes and Levels, please see the attached information sheet – Class Evaluation Information.

Questions? Please ask the Front Desk.

Does RDC have an attendance policy?

Yes, students are expected to be present and on time for all classes. Please notify the school if you expect to be absent. Please arrive promptly, but not more than 15 minutes prior to class time. Parents, please pick your children up promptly at the end of class.

Attendance Policies: Absences must be reported to the Front Desk prior to the beginning of class. RDC reserves the right to have dancers who do not dress in appropriate dance attire or required shoes, sit out of class and just observe or be sent home.

Warm up is critical in preventing injury and to enhance the productivity of the class. DANCERS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO CLASS AFTER THE FIRST 30 MINUTES – if your dancer arrives after the first 30 minutes, he/she will need to find a make up class to take.

What is RDC's makeup policy?

When a dancer misses a scheduled class, they will be able to make-up in any class that is age and level appropriate. You do not need to schedule a make-up class ahead of time. Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes to pick up a make-up slip from the front desk and find the studio you will be dancing in. You must make-up the class in the same month it was missed.

Do I need to let the studio know if my child will be absent?

It is not required but please let us know. We would appreciate a phone call.

Do you have a waiting list?

Yes, if our classes are full, we are happy to put you on a waiting list. We will call you if the class opens up or if we add a new class of the same type. When we contact students from waiting lists we generally give the family 48 hours to accept the space in the class or we move on to the next potential student.

Can I watch my child from inside the classroom?

NOTE POLICY CHANGE

No. Parents, friends and younger siblings are NOT allowed in classrooms during class. This rule helps students keep focused without distraction.

Due to current County of Los Angeles guidelines and social distancing requirements, no parents, siblings or friends may wait in the studio lobbies for students. Parents may wait in cars in the parking lot and pick up students from back doors (leading to parking lot).
