  • Attendance Policy
    If a student is regularly late to class, their parent/guardian may be contacted. If you are aware that a student will be picked up late from class, please notify the class teacher as soon as possible via email, or at drop off time. Students are not to be dropped off at the studio prior to 3:30pm as adequate supervision cannot be guaranteed prior to this time.
  • Health & Safety Policy
    The studio space, flooring and equipment are set up to promote and maintain safe dance practices. Appropriate emergency procedures exist and GLM staff understand the procedures relevant to their location. GLM staff have the responsibility and authority to ensure that health and safety objectives are achieved. They will identify and eliminate unsafe acts, procedures, conditions, equipment, and hazards of all kinds. Behavior from students, parents or visitors that may cause an unsafe environment, will not be tolerated. It is the responsibility of the student or parent/guardian to inform GLM of any prior or current allergies, illnesses or injuries, detailed on their enrolment form. All GLM staff members hold a valid First Aid Certificate, CPR training and Working With Children Check. Parents/Guardians must be responsible for minors before and after class times. GLM will not provide supervision to minors outside of class time unless prior arrangements have been made. This includes students outside of GLM premises, in the car park and stairwell. An Emergency evacuation map is located on the premises. A fire extinguisher and smoke alarm is located within the premises. In the event of an injury, GLM staff will administer First Aid treatment. If medical services are necessary and an ambulance is required, the student/parent will incur the costs. Physical contact may be required. Where an injury occurs, the students’ parent/guardian will be contacted. If the primary contact cannot be reached, the emergency contact will be called. Injuries that occur on the premises will be recorded on an Incident report form. Due to the nature of dance classes and technique correction, physical contact with students is often required. Correct uniform and footwear must be worn at all times.
  • Emergency Evacuation Procedure
    In case of an emergency staff will alert all persons with the sound of a bell or vocally. Staff will direct and advise all persons to move safely to the nearest exit, following the emergency evacuation plan. Staff will then direct all persons to the meeting point, in the studio car park, or an alternative safe area. Parents/Guardians of all students will be contacted once we have reached the evacuation area.
  • Communication Policy
    Upon enrolment a valid email address, phone number and emergency contact number must be provided for each student. Important information and invoices will be sent to the primary email address provided upon enrolment. The GLM website and social media pages will include all current information and is available at all times. Communication involving all students under the age of 18 will be directed to the primary contact. All communication must not offend, intimidate, humiliate or bully another person. Digital communication must not be misleading, false or injure the reputation of another person. All enquiries, communication of concerns or queries, must be communicated to GLM in writing via email or website enquiry. Teachers are not available during or in-between class time to discuss matters or answer extensive enquiries.
  • Behaviour and Bullying Policy
    GLM does not tolerate swearing, indecent or disrespectful language, defamatory comments, or indecent or disrespectful conduct from students, parents/guardians, family members, or visitors. Appropriate behaviour is expected on the premises and at associated events, as well as online. Where any person or student feels that they are the victim of bullying, they should notify GLM immediately. Incident/Grievance forms may be completed. All incidents brought to GLMs’ attention will be addressed and resolved promptly. If inappropriate behaviour persists, GLM reserves the right to terminate their enrolment immediately.
