We believe that no matter what age, size, color, or abilities one possesses,

EVERYONE CAN DANCE AND GET FIT!

 

Policies

 

Drop-in classes:

These are group classes that you may attend without registering for multiple classes; This is a great way to try out a class, or to attend classes when your schedule changes from week to week. Some of the classes are on a 4 week progression, so some weeks may be more advanced than others. With drop-in classes, you may pay per lesson (at the drop-in rate) or purchase a package of lessons at a discount. The Instructional classes (series classes) are NOT a part of the drop in classes.  Dance Fitness, Acro/Tumbling, and Kids Dance classes ARE a part of the drop in classes. If you register for a Drop in class, the class will be ACTIVE with 4 paid participants.  The class will be reviewed at 1pm of the day of class to consider if it should be cancelled or active.  Participants that register for such class will NOT be penalized for a cancelled class. 

(Contact the front desk to extend your package if the class is cancelled and you need an extension.)

 

Series classes:

Many of our group classes are run in a series format so we can build upon the material from each week. Our progression allows you to progress in your dancing along with other students at your level. With these classes, you may preregister (by purchasing the series online) or purchase the series on the first day of class. Please note that we do not offer refunds or credits for any missed classes unless you contact the studio 24 hours before the series starts. We take into consideration death in the family, sickness, and weather on a base by base situtaion.  

 

We review previous material at the beginning of each class and also offer private lessons (for an additional cost) that you may schedule to make-up any missed material. We encourage you to sign up online as soon as possible to reserve your class seat using our MindBody app.  Classes may be cancelled if less than 4 students register. Should this happen, you will be notified and your full payment will be refunded or transferred to the next month with your permission. 

 

Partners:

Partners are not required for any group classes; couples and singles are always welcome. Studies have shown that you learn to dance faster when you dance with different partners. For this reason, we rotate partners during our group classes and we encourage all dancers to participate. We do not discriminate same sex partners.

**If you have an issue with rotating, please inform your Instructor.**

 

Parent Policies

Parents may not bring children with them to lessons, classes, parties, or any studio event unless that child is enrolled and receiving instruction at the time of the event; this enables parents, teachers, and other students to remain focused and enjoy the studio atmosphere. We love working with children, so if you wish to introduce your child to the world of dance, we have talented and knowledgeable professionals to do the job!

See our calendar for details. 

 

Dance Party Policies

All dancers are required to pay admission to attend our dance parties unless one we offer the Dance Party for FREE. Our policy is true whether you intend to dance or not, and regardless of the time you arrive.

Our dance parities are open to those 6 years and older and all currently enrolled students. 

 

Private Lesson Policies

Our private lessons are 45-60 minutes long. (Each Independent Instructor dictates the duration of the lesson)

 We promise to give you the full session as long as the lesson starts on time. We require 24-hour notice if you must cancel a lesson or you will be charged for the lesson. Please notify the front desk or your Instructor directly as soon as you need to cancel. We do understand with a serious illness. death in the family or inclement weather. The courtesy gives us the time to reschedule with another student.  

If an Instructor must cancel or reschedule, they will contact you directly.  You will not be penalized for the Instructor cancelling or rescheduling your lesson. 

 

Inappropriate Behavior

Our studio is a safe and supportive environment for our student to learn and grow as dancers. We encourage all students to be tolerant, kind, courteous, and respectful in their interactions with studio staff and one another. Sexual harassment, lewd conduct, profane language, and drunkeness will not be tolerated.

 

Student – Teacher Relationships

Our teachers are dance professionals and treat all students with courtesy and respect. Romantic relationships between students and teachers are not permitted. Teachers are permitted to have friendships with students; we do offer studio dance parties and special events where students may enjoy dancing with their teacher.
