What If My Child Misses A Class?

If you must miss a class, please call the office and let us know. Students are encouraged to attend the classes on their current enrollment contract whenever possible - there are no refunds for classes not taken.

What Are The Class Requirements?

Some classes have pre-requisites in order to be qualified to enroll in the class.  For example, pointe classes can only be taken as part of a specific curriculum for a student’s age and placement level, and the dancer must qualify for these classes prior to enrollment. In addition, in order to take a pointe class, a student must take at least two ballet technique classes each week in order to enroll in a pointe class. Please be sure to check with the front desk if you have any question about pre-requisites for the classes you wish to take.

My Child Lost An Item, What To Do?

Lost & Found items will be held until midyear, and then again until the end of the school year. After these dates, they will be given to charity. 

The Logrea Dance Academy is not responsible for personal belongings left in the dressing rooms. 

If you forget some of your gear, you may borrow an item from the Lost & Found & Donated Items to use during your class period that day. 

Ask the front desk or your class assistant to help you locate what you need. 

Where Do I Park?

Parking for the Ossining studio is available on Dale Avenue and adjacent side streets. 

We cannot use the parking lot behind the Academy since it is a private lot belonging to 95 Croton Avenue  

You should take the No Parking signs seriously—village police do ticket vehicles parked illegally on Dale and adjoining streets. 

We try to reserve the No Parking area in front of the Ossining studio as a drop-off zone for arriving students. Please be considerate to other families and do not park or stand your vehicle in the drop-off zone while waiting to pick up a student. 

Do You Have Dressing Rooms?

Dressing Rooms are divided by age, level, and gender. 
 

  • Dressing Room 1 is nearest the reception area is for all girls through level A (who are not yet on pointe) and is also for all pointe students in Jr. Workshop I and Jr. Workshop II and pointe students who are not in any Workshop class.

  • Dressing Room 2 (in the back corridor next to Studio A) is for girls levels B through D (flat classes) and is also for all pointe students in Jr. Workshop III, Jr. Workshop IV and Adv. Workshop.

  • The boys’ dressing room is next to the Studio A door at the end of the back corridor. 

  • The Faculty Dressing Room is for Logrea instructors and visiting guest artists (except for rehearsals as noted). 


Note: Fathers/male guardians SHOULD NOT enter either girls’ dressing room at any time. 
 

Do You Rent The Studio To Dancers?

Use of LDA studio space for picture taking, videotaping, or any other purpose and requires payment of a rental fee. 

Studio use must be scheduled with the front desk at least a week in advance.  Please see front desk for further information.

What Is An Evaluation?

Logrea Dance Academy students are evaluated in January and families are notified by email in February of their placement levels and their recommended curriculum for the next term. 

Your teacher and the Academy directors monitor placement levels at other times during the term and make adjustments when they feel it is warranted, to ensure that every student is progressing at an optimal rate. 

For our lower level students, one Sunday is set aside in March for parent/teacher conferences. Check the bulletin board at the studio, the Events Calendar on the LDA Information Page and the LDA Facebook Page where this date will be posted. 

If there are concerns or questions about your classes, parents should request a phone conference with your teacher.  A scheduled phone conference will afford the teacher some preparation time and a focused environment— something that is not available in those hectic few moments between classes.

This can be done by
