Inspire Dance SB provides an opportunity for students to develop discipline, responsibility, self-confidence and co-operation in a professional environment. Parents and dancers must have a full understanding of their obligations to their PERFORMING GROUP. Please read the following rules carefully before returning your signed contract to us. Please retain the rules and guidelines for future reference.

COSTUMES: Costumes must be kept in good repair and stored properly. We will do our best to keep costumes at a reasonable price. They are custom made and measured to the individual.

PERFORMANCES: Dancers are expected to attend all rehearsals, performances, competitions and performing group events and give their best effort. Please notify the director in writing as far in advance as possible if you are going to miss a rehearsal or performance. Remember, being in a performing class is being on a team – if one per-son is missing it will affect the entire group.

CALENDAR UPDATES: Information is sent via email or website calendar. Please call the office (805)770-5295 or send requests to info@inspiredancesb.com.


Ballet Performing Groups ages 5 1/2 to Primary Level must take a Minimum of 1 (flat) technique class/week. Grade 1 and Up must take a Minimum of 2 (flat) ballet technique classes/week.

STUDENT BEHAVIOR: Students are expected to show respectful behavior to their team mates, teachers, and production volunteers. Students are to keep a positive attitude throughout all classes and rehearsals. If students wonder why one dancer is chosen over another for a particular role the student should direct their question to the teacher. The correct way of asking about this subject is: “what area do I need to improve in order to be placed in these particular parts?” If necessary, a parent may make an appointment with the director.

Students may be dropped from performing classes for:

  • poor attendance in performing class,
  • poor attendance in technique class
  • not working to full potential in all classes
