POLICIES & PROCEDURES

Enrollment

What do I need to do to enroll my child into dance classes?

ALL PARENTS ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER AND COMPLETE A LIABILITY FORM FOR EACH STUDENT PRIOR TO PARTICIPATION IN ANY CLASS. MEMBERSHIP FEES ARE COLLECTED ANNUALLY ON THE DATE OF REGISTRATION. THESE FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.​

To register please click on the button above that says REGISTER and fill out the required information. Once you have fill out the form you will then be in our system and enrolled in the desired class. If the class is full it will automatically put you onto our waiting list until a spot has opened up. 

If your desired class is full and you would like to insure about another please feel free to call or email us for more information.

Also, please be aware that some classes require a placement assessment before you are allowed to enroll.

See Rates & Fees for costs.

Credits & Refunds

Do you do refunds or credits towards other classes?

DD does not offer refunds or credits towards future or past sessions, and tuition is non-transferrable. At that point, the studio, the instructor, and your family are committed to the class.

 

If a schedule conflict arises for your family, we'll do our best to switch your child to another available and appropriate class, day, time. DD adopted this credit/refund policy to provide the best classes for your child with the fewest interruptions. When students come in and out of classes, it can be very distracting to the other kids, and it diminishes the quality of the class as well as the instruction.

Make-up Classes

Do you do make-up classes if we are unable to attend class? What if classes are cancelled due to the instructor being sick and no substitute was available?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a makeup class for any missed classes.

If a teacher is unable to make it to class and a substitute is not available for any reason then a makeup class will be scheduled for that specific class at the soonest availability to the teacher. If you are unable to make the scheduled makeup class you will NOT receive an open gym pass.


Special Events are not approved for a make-up.


Team Classes offer no makeup days or Open Gym substitutions for any missed class.
