Studio Policy

It is our purpose to maintain the highest standards of dance training for students of all ages and levels. The curriculum includes beginning to advanced training in ballet, lyrical, jazz, hip hop, tap, musical theatre (includes creative dramatics) and vocal & dance coaching. Our staff and teachers are highly professional and you may be assured that our classes are conducted and disciplined in a manner associated with proper dance education. We do demand respect and proper behavior at all times and reserve the right to dismiss any student who upsets the harmony of the school.

Your cooperation concerning rules of the studio will be greatly appreciated.


  1. No smoking anywhere inside the studio.
  2. No food or drinks are allowed inside the studio.
  3. Classes will begin and end on time; please be prompt. Younger children should arrive ten minutes before class time. Do not bring young children 30 minutes early. When you do, they are too tired to learn in the dance class.
  4. Miss Persis Studio and MPS employees are not responsible for any injuries while students are on the premises or in classes.
  5. Siblings who are waiting with parents must be supervised. Thank you for controlling your children. Their manners reflect your love for them.
  6. All students must wear coverups over dancewear outside the studio and should remain inside the studio after class. We cannot be responsible for your child’s safety outside the studio.
