At Baza Dance Studios Inc., we try our best to make you feel at home. Our space is designed to be warm, friendly and inspiring for everyone. To help us keep it that way, here are some studio guidelines:
Be respectful to other students, staff and other members of our community. You never know what other people are going through but we all come here to have a safe space to breathe and feel happy. For this reason, harrasment and discrimination of any kind is not allowed.
Be respectful to your instructors also! The best way to do it is by getting to class on time and not interrupting when they are talking or explaining a move. Remember they do this with all their love and heart hoping you #getinspired!
If you want to take a look at the other classes, please know we will allow you to observe for 10 minutes only and from the outside of the studio. Having too many spectators or having people staring for a longer period of time can be distracting and intimidating. We want all our dancers to feel comfortable and safe!
Cell phones on silent please! Ensure to turn your cellphone off or put it on silent mode to block out distractions while we are learning.
No filming, please! Your instructors put a lot of effort to carefully design the choreographies and classes you take which makes it intellectual property that belongs to them. If you loved the choreo/moves you just learned, instructors will let you take a video of the demo of each day’s combo however, it is for you to learn it and practice. Distribution or sharing of the material requires their explicit permission.
NAMETAGS are required for all Courses. Remember to create your own at the beginning of each scheduled Course and leave it on the designated nametag section at the end of each class. This lets us, your instructor and your classmates get to know you!
Please bring your own water bottle. We will provide water for you to stay hydrated and together we can keep our world green!
Personal Hygiene is VERY important so, here are some tips to stay fresh: It’s always good to have a mint before entering the class (or brush your teeth)! Remember we can get close to a partner in some classes and fresh breath goes a long way! Think about bringing a small facial towel and/or change of clothes. Some classes can get sweaty! Deodorant and/or body mists are HIGHLY recommended!
Bringing a clean pair of shoes that are geared for dancing will help keep our floors safe and clean for all dancers. Thank you for cooperating!
You will always find room for your umbrella by the main entrance door. Please, do not bring it with you inside the studio.
All studios are equipped with a coat rack and small cabinets for your belongings; ensure you keep an eye on your valuables. Baza Dance Studios Inc. is not responsible for any broken or lost items.
You will find the Lost and Found in our change room on the 2nd floor! All unclaimed items are donated to a non-profit at the end of each month.
MOST IMPORTANT: Have fun, be yourself, make friends and #getinspired!

• In-Studio Partner Courses

You may register as a couple and follow coupled physical distancing within the studio at all times. We will not be switching partners during class.
∙ registration for the entire course is required; you cannot join mid-course.
Classes are a space where we come to de-stress from our day, enjoy ourselves and have fun. The first 15 minutes of a class are vital to bring ourselves present, warm-up to prevent injuries and connect with our group. For these reasons, you will not be permitted to join a class 15 minutes after it has started. This will ensure that the integrity of the class is preserved and no interruptions occur. It is your responsibility to be on time to your classes, taking into consideration the necessary time for registration (if done the same day) and that no refund will be given if classes are missed due to lateness.
