It's natural to want to observe your children as they're learning and having fun. And let's face it, they look adorable in the costumes. But it can be very distracting for both the instructor and the dancers to have parents in the studio during class (except for Wiggletoes). As a result, only students are permitted in the studio during class time. Parents may observe via a closed circuit TV system installed in the lobby. For the younger children in costumes, we generally have them make an appearance in the lobby at the end of class before removing costumes.
