Withdrawls

A student may withdraw from classes at the end of any term. We request that the parent notify the school office personally or by phone. Parents are advised that they are responsible for full payment of the term for which the student is registered. If notice of withdrawal is not given we will assume that you wish to continue with classes and you will be billed for the following term.

Missed Classes

If a student misses a class a make-up class in an appropriate level may be taken if available, but must be taken within that term. Please check with your teacher for an appropriate time if you wish to make up a class.

Storm Closings

If a dance class is cancelled due to weather conditions (ie. storms or power outages) a message will be on our answering machine as well as our social media page on Facebook. Students may request a make-up class if an appropriate level is available. As recital time approaches extra classes are scheduled at no extra charge to the students so any missed classes are indeed adequately made up.
We reserve the right to cancel classes with insufficient numbers.

Class Attire & Dress Code

Physical activity needs freedom for movement. Dance wear is designed to provide that freedom, as well as, give the teacher the opportunity to clearly see the dancer's body alignment, enabling her to correct mistakes, promote stronger technique and reduce the risk of injury. Please note that a uniform is required for all Dance for young children and ballet classes and a dress code for jazz (All Black).
