Costumes, Cheer Uniforms, and Photos
For the Spring Performance, each dancer will receive a beautiful costume for each class they are enrolled in.

You pay the EXACT price of the costume. AND, We have our costumes picked out and available for viewing on the first month of class! Payment is due by November 22nd – if you have a credit card on file, we will add the costume cost to your November tuition. You may break down your costume payments over Sept. - Nov.

  • End of the year photos are taken in costume. If you opt out of costumes, you are welcome to come have your photo taken separately in a nice outfit.

Conduct and Behavior Policies​ 

  • NEW FOR 2019/2020: Please be considerate of our staff and teachers privacy. Do not message any MYM affiliates on their private social media about studio related questions. We have multiple sources of communication including the studio FB page, instagram, email, phone, or live chat on our site. We aim to answer these questions during business hours. Mon-Thurs. 4PM to 9PM

  • Lobby Behavior - At MYM, we want you to cherish the lobby we have provided for both parents and students. With this said, we wish to maintain a peaceful and respectful atmosphere, keeping shoes off furniture, voices at a medium to low level, and any messes cleaned up. Should any conflict ever occur within the lobby, we ask you to contact a faculty member in an effort to diffuse the issue outside studio doors.

  • If a parent is disrespectful or rude to our staff or students for any reason, they will be asked to leave without a refund. We are providing you a service. Bullying will be not tolerated.

  • Parents are not allowed in the dance rooms. We have viewing T.V's for this reason. 

  • Students must arrive on time to participate in class activities.

  • Respectful behavior is expected of everyone.  If a student is exhibiting rude or slanderous behavior, they may be warned, then asked to leave.

  • Students are expected to participate in class. They may not sit out unless asked or excused for injury.

  • If you are waiting in the lobby, please be respectful of others waiting there with you. 

  • Please don't let other children wander around the building while waiting for class to start or end.

  • Please clean up after yourself when using the waiting area.

Dance class is educational and fun, however, an important part of class work is developing an attitude of discipline and respect for teachers and fellow students. We trust that following our classroom etiquette will provide an environment whereby classes at Make Your Move will be a pleasure for all involved.

YOUNG CHILDREN: All students are encouraged not to leave the room once class has begun. Please allow for appropriate restroom use prior to class. Very young children will be treated sensitively as the need arises. Parents should not come into the room unless directed to do so. Preschool children may need a parent’s attention from time to time for various reasons including bathroom or behavior issues, but this should be initiated by the Teacher. Please do not leave the waiting area when very young children are in class without informing the teacher or having another parent responsible during your absence. We make every effort to have all children feel safe and cared for in a loving and inspiring learning environment.

OLDER STUDENTS: School age children and teens: please practice respect. Students are not to be socializing in a disruptive manner during the class with other students. Please come early or stay late to enjoy friends in the waiting area.  Please honor your teacher and fellow students by giving full attention and cooperation. You will be advised if we feel any student is not well adjusted to the classroom environment for any reason over time.
Feel free to watch class through the viewing windows, wait in the lobby or take advantage of our great location by running some errands. Classes run back to back, so please be prompt to pick up your child as teachers are unable to tend children after class has let out. Make Your Move is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Students are not to be left at the school for excessive time periods before or after their classes. Please be aware that we always allow parents to stay at the studio during class, but younger siblings and loud conversations in the waiting area are not only a disruption to the dancers and teachers but also the parents who are trying to watch their children.  If you have a question or concern feel free to email or call us and we’ll be happy to talk outside of class time. If you have other children with you as you wait in the lobby, please be respectful of the studio and tidy any messes you or your children may make.

Food and Drink

  • Due to the age of our current building location, we do not have access to a water fountain. We ask that all students bring their own water bottle. (Supplied at the beginning of the season.)

  • Any drink that is brought facility must have a lid, drinks brought into the studio rooms must be in plastic containers with lids, no glass containers EVER.

  • Students and parents are responsible for cleaning up their trash before leaving. We have a beautiful facility and we would like to keep it looking that way so PLEASE DO NOT leave your mess for others to clean up.
