and adhere to the following policies:

  • You are required to follow the Celtic Ceilidh Dress Code for the class you are participating in. See details on our Dress Code page.
  • Use the washrooms before coming to class.
  • Do not enter the studio unless there is an instructor present in the room.
  • Leave all belongings, including cell phones, in the dressing room or with parents during class. Only a water bottle and notebook is permitted in the classroom. Celtic Ceilidh is not responsible for the loss of any belongings.

For Dancers in Competitive Choreography Program

  • You must be present for all competitions and rehearsals.
  • You agree to all make up, hair, and costume requirements as requested by the teacher.
  • Missing more than three choreography classes or required pre-requisite classes for your competitive choreography program may result in dismissal from the competitive group. The success of our competitive dance groups requires the full commitment and dedication of each individual dancer.

  • Respect the building and property of others. Vandalism of any kind will not be tolerated.
  • Do not run or make noise in the hallways.

For Parents & Guardians

  • Notify the office when your dancer is going to be absent, so we can notify the instructor.
  • Wait outside of the studios while your dancer is in class; spectators are not permitted as it is distracting to the dancers. Seating is provided in the hallway, or you may enjoy the building’s atriums. We will have a designated watch week when you can join your dancer in class to see the progress your dancer is making.
  • You are responsible for ensuing your dancer is supervised outside of dance class.

Please make sure the office has your emergency contact information on file if you do leave.
