Expressers and the EIR Studio Team are allowed in the building no more than 5 minutes before classes begin and must exit the building immediately after classes. Members of the EIR Studio Community (ex: parents, guardians, and siblings) are not allowed in the studio.
For the safety of our Expressers and the EIR Studio Team, the bathroom at Expressions in Rhythm Studio is for their use only.
No outside food or drink are allowed in the studio except bottled water. Write your child's name on their bottled water. Have your child arrive to class, in their class attire clothes with their dance shoes in a small bag. Do not let your child wear their dance shoes on concrete or grass. They will ruin their shoes.
