Please remember that your anonymity on Social Media is never guaranteed and to exercise particular caution when posts, images or videos identify children in your care.
Remain mindful that your behavior on Social Media remains in keeping with RVDSs code of conduct.
Any comments or posts perceived to be obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, discriminatory or hateful towards RVDS staff, students or families may subject the owner to disciplinary or legal action.
Should you wish to engage on Social Media while identifying as a studio volunteer or employee, you may only do so with integrity, respect, and adhere to privacy and confidentiality policy.
Any content revealing or referring to sensitive studio information is not allowed to be shared online.
Intellectual property laws (for example, costume design and choreography, photos) must be observed by all studio patrons when posting online.
While affiliated with our studio, (for example, images of your child in RVDS uniform) we will not tolerate any posts that are racially, sexually, physically, or religiously offensive.
All matters pertaining directly to the studio - whether it be fees, scheduling, placements or performance opportunities - may not be communicated via Social Media. We have an open door policy and encourage all communication, complaints and feedback to be communicated to the Artistic Director directly.
We discourage parents / students and teachers from becoming ‘friends’ or ‘followers’ on Social Media, unless there is an existing relationship. We consider all studio members to be family and as such feel the obligation to respect and monitor personal boundaries.
Families found to be engaging in ‘hidden’ or ‘private’ groups formed for the specific purpose of discussing studio matters will be encouraged to join our closed Facebook group for public discussion and warned against discussing Studio matters in their private online groups.
Photos or Videos taken from performances or rehearsals may NOT be posted online.
You may not post photographs / videos that feature RVDS dancers other than your own online without the proven consent of their parent/guardian.
Identifying information of any featured minors - including names, ages or location - must be removed when posting on Social Media.
