Good attendance is imperative as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class, and the studio cannot jeopardize its responsibilities to the rest of the class for one student. Please make every effort to have your child at every class and on time. If your child is tardy, they should knock before entering and ask permission to participate. A proper warm-up is imperative to prevent injury. Whether or not your dancer can participate will be at the teacher’s discretion. Progress depends on regular and consistent participation.
Turning Pointe dancers are expected to show respect to Turning Pointe’s instructors as well as other dancers while participating with any activity that involves Turning Pointe of Melbourne, Inc. We will not tolerate any form of harassment or bullying.

~Social Media Policy~
Teachers and faculty of Turning Pointe of Melbourne, Inc. are advised not to accept requests or private messages from current students and/or parents via social media. We believe that social media interaction can be misinterpreted too easily. It is our policy, at Turning Pointe of Melbourne, Inc. to have all studio related questions and concerns discussed, in person, at the studio to avoid any such misinterpretations. If you need to speak with Miss Lin, or any of the other teachers, please email the studio at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text (321) 254-2340 to schedule a meeting. You may have to leave a message, as most of the time we are unable to answer the phone due to class instruction. If the issue is minor, you may speak with the appropriate person between classes.
