Listed below are questions/answers that are commonly asked at our studio.
How Do I Know Which Class is Best For My Child?
Students are placed in classes according to their age and ability.
Upon registration you will be asked several questions to determine what style of dance your child is interested in and from there your child will be placed in the class that is best suited for them.
How Do I Register?
You can register on our web site by filling out the registration form and sending it to us. You can also register at the studio during our regular hours (September-June) Monday – Thursday between 4:30pm & 8pm.
Can My Child Try A Class Before Signing Up?
Absolutely, we always offer 1 free trial class to all new students.
Do I Have To Sign Up For The Entire Season?
Dance is a fabulous way for all children to stay active and healthy, we hope that all children will love dancing with us so much that they will take classes all season. We also have an amazing year end performance that all of our students love participating and it is wonderful event for each student to work towards and look forward to. Our recital gives our students a chance to show off all of their hard work to their friends and families. Should your child not enjoy their dance experience they can withdraw after Semester 1. A notice of withdrawal must be given to the Studio Director prior to December 1st to avoid and administrative costs. NO REFUNDS ARE ISSUED AFTER THIS DATE.
Why Is There A Dress Code?
A dress code ensures that the teacher can see proper positioning and alignment. Teachers must be able to see the mistakes in order to correct them. Baggy clothing hides mistakes, can also be a safety hazard in certain styles of dance and make it impossible to give corrections. A dress code also gives the class a unified look, helps with focus and energy, and minimizes distractions. Upon registration you will receive our dress code.
What If We Miss Classes?
If a student misses classes due to an illness they can make this class up if there is an equivalent class available. Students that are consistently absent will be removed from the program.
During the winter months the studio reserves the right to cancel classes due to winter storms arising. This is done for the safety of our students and teachers. Classes will not be made up when they are cancelled due to inclement weather. When in doubt please call the studio or check your email or our Facebook page for any cancellation notices. Should classes be cancelled for another reason these classes will be made up at a later date. We do apologize but we can only schedule one make up class per cancelled lesson, we do try our very best to accommodate every student. Absolutely no refunds are given for cancelled classes.
Why Is It So Important To Attend Class Regularly?
Signing up for a dance class is making a commitment to yourself and the other students in the class. In order for the class to perform together they must be able to rely on one another. Poor attendance will affect the students progress as well as the entire class. Absences due to illness are expected so please let us know by emailing or phoning the studio and leaving a message. Students that are consistently absent may be removed from their program with no refund. Students that miss 60% or more of their scheduled class will not be able to take part in our annual recital or Christmas Production.
How Can I Pay?
Fees are to be paid upon registration. Monthly payments are accepted by one of the following methods:
Post Dated cheques or Pre-Authorized Monthly Credit Card Withdrawal.
Fees can be paid in one lump sum which is due no later than September 14th, 2015. All NSF cheques or pre-authorized payments are subject to a $45.00 penalty fee. No fees are transferrable.
