Reigning Victory Dance Studio commits to anti bullying. We provide a safe and supportive community that fosters a lifelong love for dance and creative expression. In order to guarantee that all of our dancers are able to best pursue their passion, we implemented a comprehensive anti-bullying policy applicable to our students, dance families, staff, and employees.
We define bullying as any behavior; physical, verbal, written (either electronically or in person), that detrimentally targets another dancer. This counts as bullying when it physically or emotionally harms a dancer, targets a dancer for any actual or perceived characteristic, or creates a hostile environment in the dance studio.
We understand that the under reporting of bullying is the biggest hindrance to stopping further harassment. We have developed an online form for students or parents to file in the case of bullying. We have developed an online form that can be filled out anonymously or with personal information for students or parents to file in the case of bullying. If you do not wish to provide personal information, we just ask to be supplied with a date, time, location, who was bullying, and details of the harassment.
We send this information directly to the Executive team, who are in charge of the implementation and studio wide compliance to the anti-bullying policy. The Executive team will contact the alleged bullying party, the alleged victim, teachers, assistants, and parents who may have possibly witnessed the event. Should, in addition, he/she find evidence that corroborates the report; this will serve as the basis for scheduling a course of action meeting. Reigning Victory Director, Felecia Thomas, will also review any report of bullying. Reigning Victory staff members including educators, associates, and administrative personnel must intervene if they are made aware of the possibility that bullying is occurring including but not limited to witnessing bullying. All Reigning Victory personnel have to intervene by filing the online report directly. Parents making the studio aware of the bullying event, the parent is also required to take on the primary responsibility of filing a report.
Reigning Victory will not tolerate bullying in any form; physical, emotional, social or otherwise. As such, we have implemented an Anti-Bullying Policy.Since our goal is to empower people and embrace individuality, one documented bullying event will have repercussions, which may include immediate termination of enrollment for egregious violations.
Most noteworthy, as per the policy above, Reigning Victory recognizes that bullying does not just occur between students. Parents or guardians, who harass another student, parent, or Reigning Victory staff member, will have repercussions, which may include suspension or termination of student. Please report all incidents of bullying you witness to the Director immediately. There will be no refunds for such actions.
At Reigning Victory, respect and compassion are two of our core values. All dancers have a right to learn and develop their art in a positive, respectful environment. We realize that every situation reported through this form may require a unique follow-up.
