STUDIO POLICIES

  • No food, drink (except for water), or gum allowed in the studio.

  • Hair must be neatly secured away from the face during class.

  • Students may not leave class early without permission.

  • Students and visitors are expected to conduct themselves in a polite and orderly manner in class and in the waiting room.

  • Students are to remain inside the building before class and while waiting to be picked up.  

  • Cover-ups, to and from class, are strongly encouraged.

  • We reserve the right to dismiss any student who upsets the harmony of the class.

  • Absenteeism is very disturbing to the learning process. Missing a lesson due to illness or travel is understandable but please try not to schedule other activities or appointments at class time. Students may make up classes missed but there will not be a reduction in monthly tuition. We will be keeping attendance records and perfect attendance will be recognized in our annual recital. Make up classes will not count towards perfect attendance.

  • Holidays: See calendar for specific dates.

  • Weather Closures: Information will be emailed if classes are cancelled due to bad weather.

  • Please label all dance wear with child’s name. Permanent markers work great.

Payment Policies

I understand that monthly tuition is never pro-rated but determined from an average of entire classes from Sept-May (35 weeks of classes). I realize fees and/or tuition is NOT refunded, and that it must be paid by the 10th of a month to avoid a $10 late fee (NO EXCEPTIONS). Tuition and/or registration fees cannot be refunded. SHOULD A LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION OCCUR, fees can be credited towards current session of classes ONLY. (For example, a cancelled camp fee can be credited to any other summer class or camp, but not towards fall classes.)
