Ballet Kalamazoo has a gossip-free policy and a zero tolerance bullying policy.

Gossip-free means that you do not talk about another dancer or their dancing inside or outside of the studio unless it is giving a compliment and supporting them. You represent Ballet Kalamazoo in our community, and it is important that we are setting a wonderful example for our younger dancers to look up to. This is in addition to our zero tolerance of bullying at Ballet Kalamazoo.

Dancers who gossip or bully will be immediately dismissed from Ballet Kalamazoo.
