Code Of Conduct

Respectful behaviour towards teachers, parents and other students is expected at all times. Students must be ready to dance at posted class times so as not to disrupt ongoing lessons by entering late. Unless prior arrangements have been made, a student who is continually tardy may be asked to sit out a class.

Uniform & Grooming

Proper uniform upkeep and grooming are an essential part of dancers’ training and necessary for participation in all classes. No jewelry is to be worn in class and students should not bring valuable personal items to the studio, as WDS will not be responsible for any lost or stolen items. Samples of dance uniforms as well as some new and used items will be available at registration. It is mandatory for all dancers to have the required uniform for each class.


Studio t-shirts, character skirts, junior bodysuits and junior skirts are only available through WDS. Other required uniform items can be purchased from:

  • Toes “N” Taps Dance Shoppe located at 1733 Cook St., Victoria (250-480-0017)
  • Ellswear Dance & Activewear located at 3180 Harriet Rd., Victoria (250-721-5356)

Dropping Off & Picking Up Students

Dance teachers are not responsible for supervising students outside of normal class time. Parents of younger students may stay until the dancer has been invited into class. At the completion of class, students must wait inside until their rides have arrived.

In respect for the teacher’s time, please be at the studio in time for pickup. We understand that emergencies do happen and you may be running late. Frequent tardiness may result in a late charge.


Communication will be sent out in newsletters via email. If you are not receiving the newsletter emails then please contact us. If you must speak to a teacher during instruction time, please do so at the beginning of your student’s class. You may also contact us by email.
