You must follow the dress code at all times in order to attend class
Attendance is taken in class. Good Attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class. Please be advised that the studio cannot jeopardize its responsibilities to the rest of the class for one student. Please make every effort to have your child in class.
** Please discuss with your child before classes begin that it is important for them to finish what they start. The job of getting them to practice is sometimes the hardest part, but once you get your child to practice they will enjoy themselves as well as learn.
Students are required to wear costumes for the recital. The number of classes you take will determine the number of costumes your child will need. The prices of these costumes range from $55.00 to $85.00. Adult sizes are usually a few dollars more. A notice of costume will be sent home with your child in September. One-Half of the balance will be due in October and the final payment due in November. Costumes Are Ordered During Thanksgiving Break. Costumes ordered on the 2nd order are not guaranteed to arrive in time for pictures. Costume fees are Non-Refundable.
You may set up a payment plan for your child if they have 3 or more costumes: Please see Ms. Joyce for details.
RECITAL PARTICIPATION FEE
The Fee to participate in our recital is $60.00. This fee covers the scenery, stage, lighting and props used during our show. This fee can be split into two payments ($30.00 due in Sept. and $30.00 due in Feb).
Tickets to the recital will be sold in April. Date TBA. Dancers do not need a ticket.
Positive reinforcement is used to guild our children toward acceptable behavior. When discipline becomes necessary, a child is first corrected several times. If that is not successful “Time Out” may be necessary to give the child a few minutes to reflect on his or her behavior.
Please know who is picking up your child at dance. Sometimes lack of communication happens. Please let the studio know if someone else is picking up your child besides you.
If you have a problem or concern please see Miss Brandi or Ms. Joyce. All calls must come through the studio phone. Please do not call our homes or contact us through Facebook. (If it is an *emergency* then you may call our home.) Studio Phone: (251) 621-3980. The studio opens at 4:30 every day.
