Studio Rules
Students should be on time for the beginning of a class. If late the teacher’s permission is required to enter the class. Students who are more than 15 minutes late may observe class, but will not participate.
No food, chewing gum, or beverages (except water) are allowed in the dance studio.
Students must be picked up at the end of class or rehearsal. After a 15-minute grace period has passed, a $1 per-minute fee will be assessed to parent. Young children not enrolled in class should not be left unattended.
The number of students per class may be limited by Directors at any time.
There is a $150 participation fee for each production (which students have the option to participate in) and $50 participation fee for Spring Recital. Families who volunteer for 8 or more hours will be given a $50 reduction on the next session tuition payment. The participation fee is non-refundable if the student chooses to quit a production after rehearsals have begun.
Students must be enrolled for the entire class session in order to participate in ARB productions for example: Halloween-Fall, Nutcracker-Winter, Peter & the Wolf and Carnival-Spring.
