We know that you are excited to see how much your kids are learning, however, parents & friends sitting through class is not allowed, as it will disturb valuable practice time.  Please take advantage of each parent observation day. DRESS CODE: A dancer should always be properly dressed and groomed.  It is part of the self-discipline, which goes hand-in-hand with dance training itself.  Students MUST wear the proper attire listed for their specific class.  All dress codes will be enforced.  Should a student come without proper attire they will be asked to borrow items from our “lost and found box” or sit out of class. NOTE: Please check out our dancewear racks, located in the lobby, prices are $5-$15. Click here button to check out our online store: CLASS DRESS CODES: Combo Classes (Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Tumbling) – any color leotard with pink tights (all dancers will need to have a black leotard at some point).  Dance skirts, leggings, booty shorts, and gauchos can be worn as cover ups. Praise Dance – leggings, T-shirts, dance skirts and any type of athletic wear. Hip Hop & Tumbling– dancers need to wear any type of fitted athletic wear and sneakers.  For tumbling, loose fitting clothes can be a safety hazard. LOST & FOUND: P.I.P.A. is not responsible for lost items.  If you are missing something, please check the lost and found basket. *Please put your child's name on all of their dance items. *Check your child’s dance bag daily     PIPA 2020 RECITAL:  Our 2020 Recital proposed date is Saturday, June 13th at 4:00 p.m. at the Brendle Recital Hall on the Campus of Wake Forest University!   *Each family at PIPA will receive 2 recital tickets. Pay attention to email, text and social media promotions to save on additional tickets needed for family and friends.  *Each Non Competitive family will be billed for their recital costumes and fees starting in October of 2020. What this mean is that instead of billing each dancer $65 for their costume, per class and $75 per family for the recital fee, we take that sum and spread it out over 8 months. So if your tuition is usually $55 per month, you also would owe an additional $17.50 per month due by the 7th of the month. We offer a lot of fundraisers to help with these cost.    Mr./Miss P.I.P.A.
