Parents and dancers alike: please practice respect. Rugcutterz strives to be a positive, welcoming environment for students, staff, and clients. Please do your part to make sure it stays that way!
Parents and/or guests are not permitted in the studio while classes are in session. It can be very distracting to our younger dancers, and many are uncomfortable with strangers watching. To keep all our dancers comfortable and happy dancing, we will only allow viewing to occur during our open house dates. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Parents are also asked to refrain from being in studio hallways. Only dancers are allowed to be in the studio hallways to reduce hallway congestion between the studios.
Due to severe allergies, Rugcutterz is a popcorn/nut safe zone within the studio. Please refrain from packing nut and popcorn related items in your child’s lunch and snack.
Items left behind after class will be immediately placed in the lost and found. Please check the lost and found regularly for any missing belongings. The lost and found box will be donated to charity at the end of each month. Rugcutterz Danz Artz is not responsible for lost or stolen articles.
