STUDIO RULES, REGULATIONS, and INFORMATION

  • Tuition is due upon enrollment (see tuition & class rates). Overdue tuition will be treated in the following manner and will be strictly enforced!
  • Tuition that is 1 week over due will incur a $25 Late Fee. Tuition accounts that go past a week over due will incur an additional $5 Late Fee for every week past due.
  • A $35 Service Fee will be charged for any RETURNED CHECKS.
  • Any returning students beginning class after November 30th must return to the level of instruction from the previous year to begin. They may not automatically advance to the next level. The first three months of instruction are vital for the technical development of each student.
  • If an enrolled student is absent, there will be no credit or refund of tuition. Alternately, students can make up classes at your convenience any time during the present school year. Please see your teacher for appropriate make up class times. If a student is absent or has dropped a class, please inform the studio office. Sometimes absences extend into a few weeks and we would like to be informed in the case of non-returning students so that we can open your spot in the class for others on our waiting list.
  • Please be sure student’s names are inside all dance shoes. If you bring anything of value to the studio, please bring it in the classroom with you. The studio is not responsible for, nor will the studio replace, any stolen or misplaced items!
  • Participation in the year-end recital production is NOT MANDATORY. If you choose to participate, there will be a charge for our costume which is yours you keep. Additionally, there will be an admission fee for tickets to the recital (performers do not need tickets unless occupying a seat for the majority of the show).
  • It is studio policy that costumes for the recital will not be distributed until student’s tuition accounts for the year have been PAID IN FULL!
  • OBSERVATION DAYS Scheduled Once a Month—Levels 1-4 classes are conducted in CLOSED CLASSROOMS. There will be an “Observation Day” scheduled once a month. On these specific days, you may come into the classroom or view at the viewing windows. It is at the instructors’ discretion to allow viewing other than the scheduled “Observation Days”.
  • Class attire will be strictly enforced!  Students will not be allowed to take class in street clothes – NO EXCEPTIONS! (Please see class attire information)
  • EVALUATION PROCESS – At the start of each season, the first few months of class is our evaluation period. This time allows our teaching staff to ensure that students are placed in the proper level according to their individual ability, as well as controlling class sizes.
    We appreciate your cooperation during this period!
  • No smoking or vaping on studio property
  • No refunds, only studio class credits.  Once paid and registered for class or classes, if for any reason a class or classes are dropped, a studio credit shall be held indefinitely in your name.
