Attendance

Attendance is monitored each week. Dancers are encouraged to show up consistently and on time as this promotes a strong work ethic and will give each dancer the best results as it relates to their training. Tuition remains the same whether it's a 3 week month or 5 week month.

Rehearsals leading up to any performance are mandatory. Too many absences could result in being removed from community performances or recital.

 

Enrollment

You may enroll in classes via the online software or in person at the studio. Payments can be made by card through our software or can be dropped of at the studio in cash or check form. Our apologies, we do not accept AMEX.

  • There is a $30 registration fee per family to enroll for our fall/spring term. There's no registration fee for Summer or Adult classes. The registration fee is non-refundable.
  • Our classes are structured to group dancers with similar levels of experience. This is the most conducive structure for growth. Please consider your first class as a placement class. Instructors will advise on which group a student will be best suited for.
Make Up Policy

Dancers who miss class will have one month to attend a make-up class. They may attend any other class recommended to them by their instructor. This is the responsibility of the parent and dancer to make-up the class. Tuition will not be prorated due to a missed class or holiday.

 
Class Observation

Classes may be observed from the lobby viewing windows only.

Class Drop

If a dancer drops a class or classes halfway through the month, they will still be charged for that month’s tuition. The month can be prorated if 30 days notice is received.

Any  student that drops all classes and then wishes to re-enroll within the same year will be charged the $30 registration fee again.

To drop a class or classes, please contact the studio.

Tuition

Tuition should be paid in full within the first week of each month. Any tuition unpaid by the 15th will be charged a $25 late fee. $10 will be added monthly until tuition is paid.

Semesters can be paid at once, up-front and recive a 10% discount. However, these payments will not be refunded if a dancer drops a class or classes.

There will be a $25 service fee for any returned check.

The monthly fee is a flat rate. A dancer's tuition remains the same whether it is a 5-week or 3-week month.

Families with more than one child enrolled will receive 10% discount off the total monthly fee for the second child

All balances must be paid in full by the final week of classes in May. If any accounts have outstanding balances, the dancer will not be permitted to dance at recital.

Recital

We have one Recital in the Spring for all students. We'll also have smaller performances throughout the year that will be optional. They include events such as the Winter Festival. Recital is mandatory if enrolled in the class. Not all weekly classes will have a recital routine. Please note that any class labelled a Technique Only class under Class Descriptions will not be in recital.

For the 2019 Recital, there is a $85 recital fee for each dancer enrolled. This fee pays for a recital t-shirt, DVD and 5 tickets (dancers will not need a ticket). Recital fees are non-refundable.

Costumes

For parades and community performances, dancers will wear our studio leotard available to purchase at the studio. Bottoms will be determined per performance/appearance but are generally black leggings or shorts.

Recital Costumes range from $70-$90 per dancer, per class. There will be a recital costume for each recital routine (each combo class will have ONE recital routine). We bill for a costume deposit (approximately half) due in November and a costume balance due in December. Costume fees are non-refundable! Costumes will be ordered during the Christmas holidays and will arrive approximately the middle of April. Dancers will not receive their costumes until balance is paid.

Company members will also need to purchase costumes for competitions. These purchases are separate from recital costume fees.

Dress Code

Please, review Class Descriptions to find the appropriate attire for each class. Any specific dress code should be viewed as the dancer’s uniform. We will dance the way we look, so please do not show up sloppy or unprepared.

Insurance

Artistry Dance Alliance 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 the ONLY source of reimbursement.

Social Media

Artistry Dance Alliance is a member of Facebook and Instagram and will occasionally post pictures from classes or events. If you prefer to not have your child's face posted on these two sites, please contact the studio. 

Pick-up and Drop-off

Dancers should arrive 10 minutes early to class and be picked up within 10 minutes after. After a dancer is dropped off, they will not be permitted to leave the studio until they’re picked up. 

Please come inside to pick up your child. Do not ask them to meet you somewhere. If you do this, we will have an instructor accompany your dancer. No exceptions.

Parents may not park along the curb in front of the studio for longer than 5 minutes.
