observance policy

Parents observance of classes is recommended and encouraged. Parents must view through the viewing window and are not to sit inside the classroom, unless given the okay from an instructor. Many instructors will invite the parents in at the very end of class every once in a while to give the parents a quick show. This is up to the instructors discretion.

Make-up classes & absences

You may make-up missed classes in classes that fit the dancers age and skill level, however they MUST be pre-arranged. Missed classes are not refundable. Tuition is still due to hold the spot for your child. There are no refunds if you drop a class in the middle of the month.  We request that a parent call or email the studio to inform the teacher and staff of any absences, illness, or problem a student is having.

If you are re-enrolling in the same season, after having dropped all classes from the studio, there will be a re-enrollment fee of $15 per student.

dropping & adding a class

ADDING - If a student would like to add a class after they are enrolled, they are welcome to do a free trial class. After the trial, if you would like to add the class to your schedule you MUST inform the office manager. Any additional tuition associated with the class will be due upon the addition of the class to their schedule, but will be prorated if it is in the middle of the month. 

DROPPING - Since dance fees are charged on a month to month basis you may drop out of a class at any time. If you have paid a months fee and drop before the 15th of the month, you will not receive a refund. You may however finish the rest of the month and drop at the end of that particular month. If you drop classes after the 15th you will be billed for the entire month. To ensure you do not get billed after you have dropped a class, please make sure to come in and speak to the office staff or send an email so that we may remove you from that class list and our billing records. REMEMBER: your account will continue to be billed if the above actions are not handled accordingly
