Dance Classes

Tuition for classes is  yearly broken down into monthly payments for convenience. The monthly payment remains the same  regardless of the number of weeks or holidays in a month. We encourage all students to participate in our auto-pay program. Families who enroll in auto-pay will receive a tuition discount. All tuition not received by the 5th of any given month will incur a $15 late fee. Statements will not be mailed. It is your responsibility to ensure that payment is made on time. A $25 fee will be charged on all returned checks. Tuition is non-refundable. We require drop forms to be submitted in writing by the 15th of the month to avoid a tuition charge on the upcoming month. Not attending class does not automatically drop your child from the program. Their space will be held until a drop form is received. Drop form request should be submitted via email.

Rules

Electronic Communications

We are an environmentally friendly studio and communicate electronically with our families. Parents must have an active email address OR be willing to receive studio texts.

Drop-Off/Pick-Up

Children can be dropped off no sooner than 10 minutes before the initiation of class and must be picked up immediately after class. Supervision of students by studio staff occurs during class time only. After an initial reminder, anyone student picked up more than 5 minutes after the end of class will incur a childcare fee of $1/min billed on the next tuition cycle.

Drinks/Food

No food of any kind is allowed in any of the dance studios. Water is the only beverage permitted provided it is in a tight sealed container. Water bottles are available for purchase at the front desk. To ensure your student stays hydrated and to limit class interruptions, please send a water bottle with your student.

Costumes

Costumes will be selected by each teacher in August and distributed to each student by December. Recital  fees must be paid in full in order to receive your costume.

Class Observance

For student safety and to minimize distractions in the learning environment, no person other than those enrolled in the class will be allowed in the class. Parents will have opportunities throughout the year to observe their students in action.

Photography And Videotaping

No photography or videotaping is allowed at The Dance Factory unless prior authorization is given.

Trial

Trial classes are available for new students as space permits at studio discretion. Please request a trial online or contact the studio.

Attendance/Absences

In order to experience the full benefits of dance, students are expected to attend class regularly and on time. Absences can be made up in a comparable class (if one is available in the same session) within 4 weeks of the absence date. Make-ups are non-transferable. We have the right to refuse the use of a make-up if class size is prohibitive. Only two make-up classes will be approved in any given month. No refunds will be given for absences under any circumstance.

Registration

A registration form must be completed by a parent, legal guardian, or any student over the age of 18 before the initiation of any class. There is a $30 non-refundable registration fee required each school year. Tuition plus the registration fee must be paid to complete your registration and secure your space in class.

Class Cancelations

In the rare event that class is canceled due to emergency or teacher illness, a makeup class will be arranged or credit given if a makeup class is not possible. We will do our best to notify each student by phone or email as soon as we are made aware of the situation.

We reserve the right to cancel classes which do not meet minimum enrollment.

Belongings

Students should make sure all personal belongings are labeled and stored in the designated cubby areas during classes. The Dance Factory is not responsible for lost or damaged personal belongings.

Dress Code

All dancers should have long hair pulled away from their face.
No dangling jewelry of any kind will be allowed.
