What We Expect
At Mobile Bay Dance Academy, we teach in a Christian, encouraging, yet structured dance environment.  We want our students to learn to love the art dance.  This is what we
will teach them to do.  In return, students should be respectful to all of their fellow dancers and instructors.  They should come to class prepared to dance. All students should
arrive ready to dance with a ready to learn attitude. They should wear dance appropriate attire and dance shoes. See our dress code for more information about appropriate
dance attire.
Parent Responsibilites
It is the responsibility of the parents to be aware of all dance studio activities, such as recitals, opening or closings, and picture days.  When public and private schools close due to weather, the studio will also close.  Dance classes will resume when school resumes. The studio notices are posted on the website, in our newsletter and in your email.  We also post to Facebook! Please notify us if your address, e-mail address, or telephone number has changed.
 We work hard to make the dance experience organized and fun. Keeping you informed is one of our primary goals. Please read all newsletters and other dance class
information. The studios primary method of communication with parents is via e-mail. If you are not receiving any e-mails from the us, then please contact us to ensure your
current e-mail address is on file. Additionally, please add the studio e-mail address mobilebaydanceacademy@comcast.net to your e-mail contact list so that all communications will display in your e-mail Inbox and not a spam folder. ***Please Note: While all of our student/parent concerns or questions are important to us, we ask that you respect our staff's personal time and not contact them via Text or Facebook messenger. You may email us at any time!
No Parents or Visitors in Dance Class
No Parents or visitors are allowed in the dance classroom.  Dancers are more focused and perform better with less people in the room. Dance is also about learning independence. You will see your dancer grow so much in confidence from their dance 
classes. If your child is feeling anxious about being in class without you, you can help by explaining to your child that they can show you what they learned after class.
 We will have a special "Parent Week"  during the second dance semester which will allow 
parents and
 grandparents to come in and observe their dancer’s class.
Attending Dance Classes
Students must attend classes regularly for their own benefit as well as the growth and development of the class as a whole. Our dance classes are based on individual 
commitment; however they are fueled by the entire class. Sometimes you may need to miss class due to illness.  If you are contagious, do not come to class. By coming to class we ssume that all students are healthy and able to dance. If your child has a sprained ankle, cast, etc. PARENTS should let us know about the situation in advance and we will let your child observe the class. We realize that most of our students are involved in other activities. Occasionally, dance and your other activities may be held at the 
same time. We understand that occasionally you may have to miss class to attend another activity, but it should not happen regularly. Sports and clubs usually meet several times a week if not daily. Dance class only meets once a week (per class), so be sure to 
keep that comitment.  MBDA offers classes all over Mobile County, if your child misses class, and you choose for them to make the class up, please email or call us to make arrangements for them to attend another dance class.

We love your dancers and can't wait to teach them!!!
If you have any questions, email or call us!
