To ensure the smooth, safe running of Studio 44 and an enjoyable experience by all, below you will find our code of conduct. As always we are
open to feedback, so if any of the requirements outlined below are unclear or concerning, please give us a call to discuss further. Following a formal meeting, we do reserve the right to dismiss or take disciplinary action regarding any member who breach our studio’s code of conduct.
Members who do not comply with their fee or other payment obligations may be charged a late fee, and/or excluded from performances. External debt collection may occur when fees remain overdue and this will be at the expense of the member.
Costume expenses are the responsibility of the parent, and costumes will not be issued to students with unpaid class fees.
We are unable to take responsibility for our members before or after their scheduled classes and it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure their child is picked up and dropped off on time. In the case of an emergency or unavoidable delay, please contact the studio immediately to inform us of the situation so we can keep your child calm and safe until they can be collected.
In the rare case of a parent or student showing disrespect or defamation to any parent, staff member or student, a meeting will be called immediately and dismissal may be considered at the discretion of the owners and teachers. Physical, mental, emotional or cyber bullying by parents, staff or students will not be tolerated and may result in dismissal from the studio.
Studio 44 takes no responsibility for any stolen or misplaced property on the studio premises and we encourage our families to avoid bringing valuable items into the studio where possible.
Studio 44 reserves the right to change teachers or timetabling when necessary at any time throughout the year. Choreography, costuming and studio policies remain the intellectual property of Studio 44 and may not be reproduced or sold by any students, parents or staff without permission of the owners.
DDC - Uniform
We believe that wearing studio uniforms give students a sense of belonging to our family as well as creating an identity for our studio in the greater community.
Our uniforms also:
• Encourage discipline
• Help students resist peer pressure to buy stylish clothes for class
• Help identify non-students in the studio
• Diminish economic and social barriers between students
• Increase a sense of belonging and school pride
• Improve attendance
Uniforms can be purchased all year-round from the Studio.
Full price list can be found on the DDC notice board.
Please ensure all parts of your child’s uniform are clearly labelled; individual shoes,
socks, underpants... you’ll be amazed at the amount of lost property we generate!
Children are required to wear uniform to every class!
