Attendance and Commitment
During each dance season, students work on a choreographed dance, which will be performed in the year-end recital. Our goal is the see each student improve his or her performance and technical skills throughout the year. A successful performance requires both attendance and commitment to dance classes. Students who miss class put the entire class at a disadvantage, due to the fact that absent students must be taught the missed material while the rest of the class repeats what they covered the week before. Your commitment ensures that students receive the most out of our programs and that they spend their time learning, not repeating.
A costume deposit of $40 per class is due in October. The final payment for costumes will be due in December. Students withdrawing permanently from class from September through December 1st of each year will receive a full costume refund. After December 1st, costume money will not be refunded. If costume deposit is not received by October 31st,
a costume will not be ordered.
