Please note there will not be any ballet classes at the studio December 9th - December 16th due to Nutcracker rehearsals at the Tilden Arts Center.

Please contact the shcool if your child is absent due to an illness or vacation. Please use common sense and keep your child home if they are sick. We do not want to spread illnesses to other students or teachers. Students who miss classes are encouraged to take a make up class at the same level of instruction or below. Please check with the teacher for an appropriate make up class.
In case of snow or other unforseen nasty weather conditions we follow the belief of safety first. If public school is cancelled (please check with Harwich school system) we will also be closed. Many of our teachers travel a great distance to come to the studio so their safety as well as that of our students is important. Students who miss classes due to weather are invited to come take an extra class during the semester.
Students at all levels should look neat with hair secured off of their face. Our littlest dancers below level 2 should come to class with pink tights, pink ballet slippers, any solid color leotard, tap shoes for students with tap, and hair neatly secured in a bun or off of their face. Students in Jazz and Hip Hop should have appropriate shoes, please check with teacher on the first day of class, and hair off of their face. Students should wear jazz pants and a leotard for jazz classes, for hip hop a shirt and either jazz pants or sweat pants is appropriate.
We have a new dress code as of September 2013. Ballet 1 - Pink; Ballet 2A - Light Blue;Ballet 2B is lavender, Ballet 2C Dusty Rose, Ballet 3A - Royal Blue, Ballet 3/4 - Dark Purple, Ballet 5/6 - Black. There are specific class leotards colors and styles. These will be available at the RHC shop in early June of 2013. Students in ballet 4 and up are also required to have a class colored skirt. Please have all of your children's dance clothes labelled with their name. There is a lost and found located in the upper dressing room. However, it will be cleaned out as need be. Please check it regularly if you are missing items.
Teacher's at RHC welcome communication from parents. We now have a weekly "Flash" which is emailed to all parents and informs you of upcoming events and dates to be aware of. We also have a monthly "Heart to Heart" parent meeting held in the waiting room of RHC on the first Friday of the month from 4:30 to 5:30 pm. These meetings are ways of sharing ideas in the works for new programs at Reaching Heart! Please join us. It has also been a nice way of getting to know other RHC families.
