Welcome! Thank you for selecting Art Dance Academy (ADA) as your School of Ballet and Dance. I am delighted to be in my third year of operation, and I am thankful to you for choosing me in your journey of the performing arts.
In continuing to provide you with great customer service and ongoing communication about your child’s progress in their dance education, an office assistant will be available to you for questions, concerns and other matters relatable. The goal for this addition is to provide the students and teachers with a distraction-free environment during which time it is crucial to give the students undivided attention. This implementation will maximize the quality of care and attention each student requires to enhance their personal growth. For this reason, persons that are not enrolled in classes are asked to wait outside of the studio.
Parents may also request an appointment through the secretary.
ADA will post events, pictures, deadlines and announcements on the studio’s Facebook.
In addition to a distraction-free environment, we are asking that all cell phone use for any purpose such as, talking, texting, recording, or other, remain off limits by the parents or other persons not otherwise authorized by ADA to photograph or record students.
The studio reserves the right to utilize photos and video of the students taken at performances and events. As a performing arts studio, it is crucial you understand that photography and videography is an essential part of this business. The utilization of such components will be uploaded to various forms of any social media. As an enrolled party of ADA, you are hereby
notified that your objection to ADAs usage of photos and video may result in the student’s ejection from the program.
