STUDIO INFORMATION AND POLICIES
Registration Fee - The first month's tuition is required with the registration form to reserve class space. Registration will not be considered complete and class space is not reserved until this fee has been paid.
*Class fees are due at the first class of each month.
*A $10 late fee will be applied to accounts not paid by the 15th.
*Tuition may be paid by the following methods: cash, money order, check, or credit card (We accept MasterCard, Visa, and Discover).
*Checks should be made payable to Dance Etc. and include your child’s full name in the memo.
There is a $10 returned check fee, per check, on all returned checks.
*Tuition remains the same regardless of absences and whether it is a long (5-weeks) month or a short (3-weeks) month!
Tuition is per month – not per class.
The monthly fee for one class a week is $50.00. Fees are reduced for additional classes per week or for more than one child per family.
Class Changes - If you need to drop or add a class at any time during the year, you will need to fill out a drop-add form. These can be picked up in The Dance Shoppe. Not showing up for classes, does not constitute a withdrawal from class. You will continue to be charged for tuition until the drop-add form has been completed.
Insurance - Dance Etc. does not carry medical insurance for its students. It is required that all students be covered by their own family insurance policies and if injury occurs it is understood that the student's own policy is your only source of reimbursement.
Bad Weather / Holidays - The studio will not necessarily close for snow days, regardless if area schools are closed, since many times roads are clear and safe by 3:00 p.m. If in doubt call the studio after 12 noon on the given day for a recorded message. If classes are canceled it will also air on area radio stations.
Attendance - Good attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class. Students should be prompt and prepared for class.
Practice Wear - Dance Wear is required for all classes. Students must wear comfortable form fitting dance attire to display proper body alignment and allow for easy movement. No baggy t-shirts, baggy shorts, blue jeans, no jewelry or other inappropriate attire will be allowed. Hair should always be securely pulled away from the face.
*Ballet - Leotard, tights and pink ballet shoes, skirts, wraps, shorts over tights or tutus are allowed but we must always be able to see the knees and ankles - NO DANCE PANTS PLEASE!
*Tap - Same as ballet, but K-5 black tap shoes and 6th grade and up tan taps with heels.
