POLICIES AND GUIDELINES:
Children are placed in the level where the teachers believe their present capacities can be best honed. Placement & level classifications are a collaborative effort and are at the discretion of the Dance Creation Faculty. Primary factor for placement is age as skills and abilities are specific to a certain age level. Other factors considered are frequency, consistency & number of years in training and ability.
Dance Creation Studio will be open 15 minutes before the first class of the day. Students should arrive and be ready (meaning: hair, clothing, and shoes are on) to dance at least 5 minutes prior to their scheduled class time. Attendance will be taken at the start of each class.
It is very important not to be late. Students that are under the age of 8, should not be dropped off and left unattended for more than 10 minutes before class.
Consistent attendance is important as absences can hold back an entire class. We strongly encourage that students not miss any classes during the term since we do not provide refunds for any classes missed. In the case of classes offered twice a week, students may attend the other class as a make-up class.
STORM CLOSURE POLICY
For class cancellations due to weather, a decision will be made by 2PM on that day. Students will be informed through email. This will also be posted on our Facebook page and website.
If no announcement is made, then classes will continue as scheduled.
In the event that the studio decides to stay open, we advise that you use your own discretion whether to come to class or not. Please advise the studio if you opt not to attend your class.
For all concerns, please call 506-383-1688 during regular office hours (Monday-Thursday 2pm-6pm and Saturday 9am-3pm) or send us an email or a private Facebook message.
MAKE-UP CLASSES FOR STORMS AND TEACHER ABSENCE
Classes cancelled by DCS will be re-scheduled by the studio. Students will be informed through written notice or email. Information will also be posted on our Facebook page and website.
Students also have the option to attend the same class, but different section as a make-up class. For example, a student enrolled in HipHop 2B (Fri) can attend a class of HipHop 2A (Tue) as a make-up class. Please coordinate this through the office to ensure manageable class sizes.
DCS reserves the right to transfer, combine or dissolve any class.
Payment must be made on or before the 1st session of the term. If the registration deadline is missed, the student can wait to register for the next term.
If after the first class, students wish to pull out of the class, a full refund will be issued.
If by WEEK 2, students wish to pull out of the class, drop in rates will be applied for the first two classes and they will be refunded the remainder of their tuition.
No refunds will be issued after WEEK 2.
Only students of the ongoing class & members of the DCS staff are allowed inside the dance studio. Parents are requested to stay in the waiting area and leave their children to the care of the teacher. There will be a parent viewing day that will be scheduled every end of the term.
We ask that dance shoes and indoor shoes be worn in the studio and that outdoor shoes be left in the dressing room.
We encourage that every student have a dance bag with his or her name clearly marked on it. All their belongings must fit into the student’s dance bag while the student is in class. Do not leave belongings scattered in the waiting room or dressing room. DCS will not responsible for any loss of belongings.
Food and/or chewing gum are NOT allowed in the studio. Please eat in the waiting room. Water is allowed in the studio.
Dancers are asked not to enter the dance studio before designated class time out of respect for the ongoing class session.
Last but not the least, dancers are required to have fun!!!
