Parent/Guardian’s Responsibility to be Aware of Dates and Events
Please read all newsletters and other school information posted in the Customer Portal, the Dance Innovations Dance Center website https://DIDC.dance, and the studio’s Facebook page which are all available 24 hours a day. If you have any questions regarding the information distributed, we encourage you to contact the office at (603) 436-2300. Feel free to email questions to the office at Info@DIDC.dance. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian or the adult student to be aware of all studio activities such as picture days, recitals, extra classes, and dates the studio is open or closed. The studio will not only post all such notices on the website and on the bulletin boards, but will also email seasonal newsletters as well (be sure to check that DIDC is on your list of Safe Senders so important studio information doesn’t get sent to spam folders). It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to regularly check postings to ensure they are informed, and likewise, to inform the studio of any address, email, or telephone number changes.
Students must carry dance shoes to and from class; wearing dance shoes outside is not good for the shoes or the studio floor. Please check tap shoes for loose screws. Please WRITE YOUR NAME IN ALL YOUR DANCE SHOES. There is a used-shoe exchange bin in the studio – please feel free to take or leave a pair.
