Tuition must be paid on a monthly basis, due the first lesson of each month. Tuition fees are NON-REFUNDABLE, however, if a student should miss a class due to sickness, injury or personal vacation, a make-up class can be taken through April of our dance term.

Attendance

All students are expected to come to class regularly and on time.  While the growth of a dancers' skills is a personal achievement, the success of a dance class depends on a team effort from the students, teacher and parents. Absences can hold back the student as well as the entire class. Regular attendance is expected and excessive absences may result in removal, in part or all, of a recital routine.

In case of absence or illness, please notify the studio on or before the day and time that the student will not be attending.

Recital

The end of year performance is an established custom.  It is an event which students look forward to with great anticipation.  Students duplicate the lifestyle of professional dancers and are given the chance to perform some of what they have learned in class on stage in costume, with lights, audience and applause.  The recital is an elective of the student and parent.  Each student's decision must be made by December if they are to be an active talent in our recital production.  

If you are to participate you will be required to:

1) Purchase a costume and all needed accessories from the studio.  A costume deposit will confirm your recital commitment and will be due the last Saturday of November.

2) Attend all assigned rehearsals and recital dates.  

3) Excessive absenteeism will withdraw a student from recital participation.

Class Visitation

Visitors ARE NOT permitted in either of our dance rooms while class is in session, however, all parents are welcome to wait for their children in our reception area.  Each family will be notified of our 'Parent Observation Day' which takes place during our school term.  We encourage your interest and attendance on that day! Pictures and video may be taken at this time.

Snow Days

When uncertain weather prevails, each student is responsible to call the studio for information regarding cancellation of classes for that day. We often wait until 3:00 PM to make our final decision on road conditions, so please be sure and call the studio just before leaving home to find out whether or not your class has been cancelled.
