Rules, Policies & Procedures
We welcome your interest in STEPS PAC. We realize that only a small percentage of dancers become professional performers and the majority of students are studying dance for other reasons. There are many benefits derived from the art of dance – among these are physical fitness, balance, flexibility, confidence, poise, mental alertness and discipline. Aside from all other factors, Dancing is Fun!
In order to maintain the high standard and positive environment of the studio, the patrons are required to observe the following policies and rules.
