Policies & Procedures

Refund Policy

No refunds, only credits for dropped classes. Refunds will only be issued if moving out of area. A credit will be issued for medical excuses resulting in 4 or more weeks of missed classes (physician’s note required). Registration fees are nonrefundable. There will be a $30 administrative fee charged for processing any refund. No exceptions!!!

Change/Drop

The studio must be informed of the intention to change or drop a class! Students will be billed for all registered classes until appropriate notification of any change is given to the studio.

Notice

There will be a $30 service fee charged for all returned checks (insufficent funds or other). There will be a $30 charge for each late payment. Redeposited checks will incur a $20 fee.

Cancel

All classes are subject to cancellation, with full refund, if minimum student registration is not met.

Placement

The first three weeks of classes are an evaluation of each students ability. In all instances, qualifications for a particular class will always be at the instructor’s and studio director’s discretion.

Recital

All students are invited to, but not required, to participate in our June recital. This is a fully staged, costumed, professional quality dance program showcasing our students and teachers’ choreography. Tickets for this production go on sale one month prior to the show. Select intermediate and advanced classes perform in DanceScapes, the March showcase, instead of June recital. This selection will be announced in November.

Costume Policy

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not order costumes for any student whose account is not current by our winter break (December); therefore, those students will not perform in DanceScapes or the June recital.

Inclement Weather

Every effort will be made to notify you in advance of any closures due to weather or any unforseen reason. During inclement weather, please check our website or call the studio at 847-816-1711 and the office manager or answering machine will inform you of any closures. If it becomes necessary to cancel a class, due to weather or any other reason, the class will be rescheduled, if possible, and students will be notified in advanced.
