Studio activities are typically booked back-to-back. Help us stay on time by promptly beginning and ending your rental period. Should a space be occupied at the time of your reservation, please do not ask the occupants to leave. We ask that you request help from the Front Desk to assist with the changeover.

No food or drinks are permitted in any of the studios with the exception of water, in plastic or metal bottles.

Tap shoes are ONLY allowed in Studio 1. Street shoes are not allowed in any studio. Please remove your shoes before entering the studio; this applies to all participants and observers. High heels and rosin are forbidden in the studios.

Ballet barres should be used in their intended manner and cannot be removed from the studio, unless prior permission has been granted to do so. Sitting on the barres is strictly prohibited.

Sound systems are provided for your use in each studio. Each system is equipped to play via CD, AUX, or Bluetooth. The Bluetooth password is indicated on the sound system. The Front Desk is available to assist you if you need help operating a unit. If the volume level interrupts other activities or puts the speakers at risk, you will be asked to lower the volume.

Heating and air conditioning are maintained seasonally in the dance studios. The Front Desk is available to assist you if the temperature needs to be adjusted.

Intercoms are provided in Studio 3 – 5. Please use them to call the Front Desk for assistance.

Pianos are provided in each studio. Use of the piano is included in your studio rental at no additional cost. Please do not use these valuable and sensitive instruments as tables, coffee bars, computer stands, or for any other unintended purpose. Please do not move the pianos.
