We’re so excited to Reopen our studio doors! In order to ensure the safety of our dancers and faculty, we have implemented a new set of safety policies and procedures.

house rules

  • Please be prompt and arrive on time for your session. Latecomers disrupt the schedule. Generally, instructors do not allow students to join in the class more than 10 minutes after the start time.

  • Wear comfortable clothing that stretches and remove any dangling jewelry.

  • Cell phones and other communications devices should be turned off before class. Please be polite to your teacher, to your classmates, and to everyone working at Laura’s Stage.

  • Everybody is entitled to respect.

  • Dance shoes should be worn only in the studio or on stage. Wearing dance shoes in a parking lot or on a street or sidewalk can damage the shoes and bring in dirt that can damage the dance floors.

  • No food, drink (except water), or gum is allowed in any studio, and there is no smoking allowed anywhere on the premises.

  • Possession, sale, and use of alcoholic beverages or controlled substances are not permitted on the premises at any time.

  • Theft, lying, plagiarism, forgery, and all other forms of dishonesty will not be tolerated at any time. No form of harassment (sexual, verbal, or otherwise) or bullying will be tolerated at any time.

  • Laura’s Stage does not discriminate and will never refuse service to any prospective or current student based on race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age, or veteran status. However, to ensure the productive and safe operation of our classes, we reserve the right to refuse service, or to terminate service, to anyone on the basis of inappropriate or wrongful behavior at our building (or off-site location, if applicable). We reserve the right to terminate service to any member who violates any of our house rules or who is disruptive in class. Members asked to leave our building (or off-site location, if applicable) may be refused re-entrance and will not be entitled to any refund (full or partial).

The nearest hospital is Lawrence General Hospital, located at 1 General St, Lawrence, MA. For Emergencies, students should contact 911 or appropriate authorities.

Laura’s Stage is monitored by 24hr security cameras. Laura’s Stage has a cooperative relationship with the Lawrence Police Department. All crimes are reported directly to the LPD. Laura’s Stage has a zero tolerance policy for malicious and/or illegal behavior. Students should report all incidents of assault, harassment, molestation, theft, hate crimes or other illegal behavior occurring on Center premises. If appropriate, the incident may be reported to the police.

In the case of natural disaster, fire, or other emergency, exits are clearly marked. Students should evacuate in an orderly fashion and reconvene across the street.
