Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact us with any additional questions.

What should dancers wear?

Dancers may wear leggings and a fitted t-shirt or leotard or attire that allows full mobility and allows the teacher to see the dancer’s correct alignment. Please no footed tights or socks. We dance barefoot so we can fully feel our feet on the floor.

What is your sick policy?

If your child is sick, please, let your child recover at home for the day and rejoin us when feeling better for the safety of everyone. Please let us know if you will be unable to attend class. 

Is there a waiting area?

Due to the fact that there is not much space in our waiting areas, I encourage parents to drop off/pick up students when students feel settled and comfortable.

Do you have a recital?

Each spring we have an informal performance to conclude our year of dance and to share all we have learned. 

When can I observe class?

Parents are invited to watch classes on special visiting days a few times during the year.  I find that students focus better and perform their best when there are not observers on a weekly basis. 

What is your snow policy?

In the case of bad weather, we do not always follow the Stow and Pepperell school systems regarding snow days. Any classes cancelled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances will be rescheduled or will be held on zoom. You will be notified by email at least one hour prior to the start of class. 

What is your photo policy?

In participating in any of Jennifer McGowan’s programs you give permission for yourself or your child(ren) to have photos appear in dance brochures, flyers, social media, and other publicity for Jennifer McGowan’s Creative Dance Center or the Stow and Pepperell Recreation departments.
