Frequently Asked Questions


Youth students should wear leotards, unitards, under armor style pants and shirts, leggings, or fitness bottoms.

We offer a live stream of classes in our lobby! We also have specific parent observation weeks that are typically every third week of the month, where parents are given a Zoom link into the classroom area to watch and observe. Please ask your child’s teacher to send you photos and videos from class. Older students may bring devices to class to take pictures and videos of what they are learning. When parents are watching or standing in the classroom area, it becomes a distraction and distraction becomes a safety issue when students are upside-down and up high in the air. 

Exceptions to this rule include very young students who are afraid to enter class on their own for the first time, students who are taking a private lesson outside of busy group class times, or a student’s first day.
