During Open Practice you...
  • Can review skills you have already been taught. 

  • Can explore within these skills, but not teach yourself something from YouTube or social media.

  • Can review choreography.

  • Cannot teach other students skills.

  • Cannot explore skills that you have seen others do, but you have not been taught.  This is dangerous.

  • Must be respectful of others in the space who are training or working and your volume of music and personal voice at a respective level.

  • Cannot share a pulley point.  If you need to work on a skill involving more that one person, please ask the Studio Manager so that you can schedule at time to use an appropriate point.

  • During COVID-19, partnering is not allowed unless you are in the same household or parents have given consent to allow students to partner.

Open Practice Policy

If you wish to use the adjustable pulley points, you need to know how to use them correctly for
YOUR SAFETY. Please see video, photo instructions and ask a teacher, who is available to
confirm you did it correctly. Teachers are NOT AVAILABLE when they are teaching classes.
Please do not disrupt a class to ask a teacher how to do your rigging. If you need help the first few times, schedule a time with a teacher to help you. ALWAYS test your points before you get on them.

Below are instructional videos for setting up an apparatus.
