Statement of Non-discriminatory Policy (as related to students)
Dancescape, LLC admits students of any sex, race, color, religious belief, any national and/or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Discrimination is not tolerated in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, and performance programs and any other school administered program.
It is the responsibility of the student (or the parent(s) of any minor student), to ascertain his/her health condition as being suitable for the study of dance from their personal physician. Dancescape, LLC nor it's instructors assume any responsibility for accidents, injuries or other health related disease, illness or condition. Please discuss with your personal physician the benefits and disadvantages of strenuous physical exercise encountered in the study of dance. Please notify the instructor of any pre-existing health related conditions.
Proper Attire & Grooming
Hair must be neatly groomed and secured so as not to interfere with movement. Ribbons, ornaments or jewelry should not be worn to class. Any student not in the proper attire will not be allowed to participate in class for that day. We do not allow gum inside of our studio.
Hair must be worn in a neat bun, or if short, headbands may be used to secure the hair away from the face. The line of the head is an important aspect in the study of ballet.

In any endeavor, worthwhile development takes place slowly. Regular dance class attendance over a period of time results in a student feeling self-confident poised and assured in the dance skills they have learned. Dancescape, LLC does not instruct dance as so many steps in a "routine"; rather, the study of dance is promoted as an expressive art form, one which is subject to personal interpretation and, as such, must be explored and expressed by the individual.
Each level of dance instructed at Dancescape, LLC has a methodology and a course content to be mastered by the student. Promotions to a higher level are at the discretion of the instructor.
All students are encouraged to attend classes regularly from August to May. We strongly discourage students from dropping out. Students may switch to another class section on a temporary basis, provided the particular class section is not full. It is the responsibility of the student to conference with his or her instructor prior to switching to another class section.
Absences & Tardiness
The fee paid for a missed class reserves the student's place in class. If a student must miss class, it is the responsibility of the student (or parent in the case of our younger students) to notify the instructor in advance. In case of severe illness or injuries (e.g., fracture, broken bone), please advise the instructor or call the Director, Jessica Boudreau.
Dancescape, LLC provides quality instruction in small class groups. Students must be at the studio in the appropriate class attire approximately 10 minutes prior to the stated start time of class. Latecomers will not be allowed to participate in class for that day.
Missed classes may be made-up by attending another class section. Any class missed due to holiday closure, absenteeism, or transportation problems are eligible to be made up. Permission is not required for make-up classes. If you are not sure which class is proper for you or your children, ask your instructor to suggest the appropriate make-up class.
Dancescape, LLC encourages positive behavior in students through positive reinforcement and praise. Please advise the Director, Jessica Boudreau, when situations arise at home, work or school that may adversely influence student behavior.
Dancescape, LLC reserves the right to refuse instruction to any student who disrupts class to such a degree that other student's quality of instruction is compromised. Upon a student displaying disruptive behavior, the following steps shall be taken:
- At the time of the disruptive behavior, sit the student on the side until proper behavior can be exhibited.
- Discuss with the student the disruptive behavior, the expected behavior, and the reasons expected behavior is necessary.
- If the behavior continues, discuss the situation (including possible causes and effects) with the parents.
- In cases of extreme behavioral problems, the instructor, with the concurrence of the Director, may decide to withhold instruction for a period of time as determined by the Instructor and Director (with parental input).
Dancescape, LLC follows the St. Tammany Parish School Board schedule of holiday closure of two or more consecutive days including, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mardi Gras and Easter. Occasionally, classes may be cancelled for adverse weather conditions. No deductions are allowed for holiday closure or cancelled classes. Classes may be made-up.
We no longer have open class. Our new studio location now has a viewing area for all parent, family, and friends.
Parents of prospective student/students are encouraged to observe classes in advance of enrollment to ascertain the quality of instruction offered by Dancescape, LLC.
A limited number of reduced tuition scholarships may be made available to students of Dancescape, LLC of high school age or older who wish to train to become teaching assistants. Any student who meets these requirements should contact the Director if he/she wishes to be considered for the next available teaching assistant position and the associated working scholarship.
