At events, no one is allowed to sit and talk negatively or make negative comments about others groups, directors or the event.  Please understand when you do this, ultimately you are saying it about the child that is performing.  Parents and students are not allowed to show negative emotion or lack of control at events as it embarrasses the children,… anything that needs addressing will be addressed at the studio and the studio only.  Please be aware that breaking this policy would eliminate your student from performing.
