We are committed to providing a fun and safe environment in which students can learn and develop their talents. We have taken steps to ensure that this goal is met by selecting qualified instructors.
PARKING AND SAFETY: The circle drive is ONE-WAY and is for drop-off and pick-up ONLY. Parents who enter the building to wait for their child during class or to conduct business at the front desk must park in the provided parking lot. Students who are getting picked-up in the circle drive must wait INSIDE the building for their ride. Please review the drop-off and pick-up safety rules with your child/children.
MAKE-UP CLASSES: If your child misses a class due to sickness, school or personal conflict, holiday or snow day, he or she can attend a make-up class in any age/level appropriate class on the schedule. You can schedule a make-up class with your child's teacher or at the front desk. For advanced level classes and competitive programs, make-up classes are not offered.
E-MAIL: We communicate with parents via e-mail so a valid e-mail address is necessary. We will only use your e-mail to keep you informed as it relates to your child and other happenings at our facility. We do not sell our e-mail addresses and will not send you junk e-mails.

Here at Byrd’s Dance & Gymnastics, we strive to teach your children gymnastics in a fun, and safe environment. But, there are some things that you can help with, too. We'll talk to the children daily about staying safe, but we also want you to talk to them if you see things they are doing that look unsafe. Children are our world’s greatest asset. We all should work to keep them safe. Here is a list of particular things we want the children to think about. Please read these to your children. — Download our Safety Handout
