We do not coordinate our closings due to weather with any particular school district. Please reference the Remind app, Facebook and our website homepage for closing information.


To ensure student progression throughout the year it is imperative that class absences are limited to 3 or less classes per session, per class. Students who exceed the number of absences could jeopardize their involvement in the recital, competition or any other performances. Their participation will be up to the discretion of Kelly and Yvonne. Also, please note that being on time for class is essential for a proper warm-up.


Dance is a team activity in which everyone's involvement is necessary. Please note that dress rehearsal and performances are mandatory and it is imperative that you are available to commit. Students that are unable to do so must inform Kelly and Yvonne when the show dates are announced during Session II. Failure to do so may jeopardize involvement in the June recital.

Medical Conditions:

The safety and well-being of our staff and students is extremely important to us. All parents/guardians are responsible for informing teachers and assistants (in addition to Kelly and Yvonne) about all medical conditions/allergies associated with each student. Please utilize the medical conditions and allergies line on our registration form. We do not monitor the food and drinks that come in and out of our studio, therefore the studio is not an allergy free space. Sherry Martin staff are not responsible or qualified to administer medication. Students and parents are personally responsible for themselves at all times.
