STUDIO POLICIES & PROCEDURES

TUITION

Tuition is due the first class of each month. Invoices will be emailed prior to the last class of each month. There is a $15.00 late fee for tuition not received on or before the first day of class each month. Tuition is calculated based on the entire dance year (January-December), and is the same each month, even for those shortened by holidays/closures. There are no refunds, credits, or transfers. Credit for a make-up class will be provided only for extenuating circumstances. As a courtesy, one vacation credit will be afforded during the summer months (June-August). To utilize a vacation credit, parents/guardians must submit a request two weeks prior to the intended date of absence.
A $25.00 fee will be charged for all returned checks. There is a $3.00 processing fee added for every credit/debit transaction. Tuition can be paid during classes or online. 

REGISTRATION

Upon enrollment, all parents/guardians are required to fill out a New Student Registration Form, which will be provided at your dancer's first class. There is a non-refundable annual registration fee of $20.00 due by August 20th of every year. Families with two or more students, shall receive $5.00 per every additional student (2 students = $35.00, 3 students = $50.00). Annual registration fees paid in May, June, or July, will not be due again until August of the next year. 
Any students who miss four consecutive classes will be required to re-register and pay a new registration fee upon returning to class(es).  

ATTENDANCE

Students are expected to attend every class, and to arrive on time. Progress in class depends upon the student's regular attendance and consistent class participation. Important warm-up exercises are conducted at the beginning of each class, and arriving late causes disruption. Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late, may not be able to participate in class.
Attendance during recital time is very important. If a student misses too many classes during recital time, it is at the discretion of the instructor as to whether the student will be able to perform

RECITALS

We have two dance recitals each year, and all students are welcome and encouraged to participate.                                            They are typically held the first week of June and the                                          second week of December, and take place at our                                                  studio, where they are always professionally                                                        produced and presented. There are participation fees                                            which include fees & costs for costumes, and tickets                                            are $5.00 each. It is your choice as to whether your                                              dancer participates in these recitals, although we                                                  encourage all students to participate. This is where                                              you (as well as your family and friends), can see the                                            progress your dancer has made, and provides an                                                  opportunity for all of our dancers to showcase their                                              talents and hard-work.

PARENT COMMUN-ICATION

All tuition invoices and receipts will be sent via email, as will all other communications and correspondences, including Newsletters.

DANCE ROOM ETIQUETTE

Students should use the restroom before class, and should be on their best behavior while in class. Any students misbehaving may be asked to leave the                                                  classroom. Respect should be given at all times to                                                parents, instructors, and fellow dancers. Continual                                              misconduct may result in dismissal from the studio. 
                                         There is no food, gum or drinks, other than water,                                                permitted in the studio. Students with cell phones                                                must have them silenced and put away during class.
