Studio Reservation Guidelines.

****The priority list and guidelines are currently being revised as of October 2016.  Policies and prioritization is subject to change.

  1. Each user may reserve a studio for a maximum of 4 hours total for a week, no more than twice a week. (exceptions: faculty and dance grads)
  2. Reserve space online before using - even if using last minute.  Rely on the online systems as the "contract" in terms of studio reservations.  The schedules posted outside of 265 are only printed weekly and might not reflect actual reservations. 
  3. Include what you are working on with your name (FDC, Class Prep, Research, etc...).  Include an email and phone number in the description box.
  4. If you are Willing To Share (WTS) please indicate that next to your name.  If you do not see WTS next to a reservation name - DO NOT ask someone to share their space with you.   
  5. Faculty & Grad student changes/deletions should be made as soon as possible to any existing reservations.  If you have problems, contact Kelly for help.
  6. Undergraduate students who need to change and/or delete reservations need to contact Kelly immediately to have these processed.  Failing to do so will result in a warning.  Three failures will result in suspension of studio privileges.
  7. Students and Student Groups can reserve NO MORE than a quarter in advance (bumping privileges are applicable).  Student Group special events that have been approved by your advisor and the faculty, like InFlux or a Milonga, will note be bumped.
  8. Dance Majors may NOT reserve space for students/groups from outside the department without prior consent from the department.  Doing so without consent may result in suspension of reservation privileges. 
  9. There is an order of priority for studio use - those lower on the priority list may be bumped if needed. In case of conflict, it is the responsibility of the "bumper" to contact the "bumpee" at least 48 hours prior to the reservation.  If you need help finding an email or contact information, contact Kelly. 
  10. Keys for studios need to be returned promptly.  Failure to return keys in a timely manner may result in suspension of reservation privileges. 

The priority list is as follows:

  • Dance Program classes and master classes
  • Choreographers working on a Dance Program Concert (not including DSA productions)
  • Dance Program faculty
  • Dance Program graduate students
  • Dance Program Honors
  • Dance majors
  • Dance Student Groups
