All Students should arrive at the studio in time to check in and start their class. Students that arrive late will be permitted to go ahead and take the remainder of the class, but should stretch before joining the class.
Please do not walk through the dance floor in the middle of a routine. Wait to enter or exit the dance floor between songs. This is a safety issue for all students. It is important to be present for warm-up and cool down routines.
Be considerate. Please try and be at class on time.
Dance Trance requires that all students have on appropriate fitness shoes (Gym Shoes) for safety reasons. Please help us with construction problems around both our studios. Wear your street shoes into the studio and then change into your dance shoes. This will help keep dirt and gravel off our studio floor and keep your dance space clean for throwing it down!!

We do not allow food in the studio.
You must be at least 18 years old to take a fitness class at our studio with the exception of our kids program (7-11). For special exceptions, please call.
Room Temperature: The studio is intentionally kept warm to encourage the body to detoxify through perspiration. The added warmth helps muscles to be more elastic and less susceptible to injury for dancing.
Please do not stop, stand or rest in class for any reason, the class is moving so move with them. Have fun and dance, there is no reason to freak out! Move in the direction the class is flowing. Eventually you will start to pick up some of the choreography. If you need to stop, tie your shoe or rest, exit the dance floor between routines.
If you are not in great shape, the Dance Trance class will be a lot for you. Take it easy and do not try to keep up with those that have been working on this material for years. The best way to learn is to try and stay on the dance floor.
Please keep all belongings and water in the area provided. No items are allowed on the dance floor for safety reasons. DT is not responsible for items left in the changing rooms. Please leave valuables at home.
Please turn all cell phones OFF. Cell phones are not allowed in the dance area. Be considerate.
Music is unedited and uncensored. We play original artist’s recording’s and do not alter explicit versions.
