• Tuition is based on a monthly rate and is payable the first lesson of every month. The fee
    remains constant whether there are three, four or five weeks in the month.
  • A $5.00 service fee will be imposed on all accounts not paid within the current month.

  • Dancers learn through practice. We expect our students to attend classes regularly, as it is
    the only way to improve technique. Missed classes affect personal progress as well as the
    class' progress.
  • Please call the studio if you will be absent from class.

Parent Observation Weeks
  • Refer to our calendar page for the dates of our "Peek Weeks," when classes will be open to
    parents for observation.
  • We ask that parents make other arrangements for infants and toddlers, as they can be very
    distracting when students are trying to do their best.
Dress Code Policies
  • Students must go to and from the studio wearing cover-ups over their dance attire.

Other Studio Policies
  • Parents are responsible for the behavior and safety of their children. Our waiting room is for sitting, doing homework, etc. Children are not permitted to run in the
    waiting room or through the hallway at any time. The studio is not a playground. Toys and other materials are not to be spread over the waiting room floor. Siblings
    and friends brought into the studio are to be monitored at all times. Horseplay inside or outside the building will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to ask anyone
    who is disruptive to leave.
  • A vacant studio is not to be played or loitered in.
  • The studio office is a private area. Students/families may enter only when a faculty member is present.
  • The studio doors will be unlocked 15 minutes prior to the first class of the day.
We ask all students and parents to read and abide by all of the studio's policies.
This will allow us to do what we really love to do: teach dance!
Your child can't play sports without a uniform... They shouldn't dance without one either.
Part of the discipline of dance is coming to class prepared and in the proper attire.
We believe our dress code improves the quality of our students’ education. By making dancewear simple and
uniform, teachers can clearly see the student’s body and therefore make more accurate corrections
regarding movements, alignment and positions.

All students must have proper dance attire per the studio dress code only.
