Code of Conduct
*Students, parents and teachers alike are expected to show respect and courtesy to each other.
*Students will be dismissed from class for unreasonable behavior.
*Students may wait in the waiting room between classes to do homework/eat as long as they are not disruptive to the classes in progress or the other parents and dancers in the waiting/lobby area. Students who cannot wait in a respectable manner will need to be accompanied by their parent or other guardian.
*Parents, siblings and other visitors may wait in the lobby area during class. However, this area can become crowded with students and parents alike and we ask that everyone respects the space and the classes in session.

*Dancers enter and exit the dance studio quietly and no running out.
*Students should be dropped off no earlier than 10-15 minutes prior to class if possible and should be picked up promptly after their last class. If a situation should arise that a child needs to be dropped off earlier or picked up late please notify me.

It will come off your quarterly balance automatically so please remember at the time of making your payments.

Also this does not include some costume pieces, tights, or shoes. This may be additional at the time of payments or closer to pictures. But this gives you about the exact amount you can count on paying.
Snow Days & Picture Days
If the Central City Public or Private schools cancel for the whole day or after school has started, then dance classes are cancelled also. If they have a late start there will be dance unless I cannot get to Central City due to weather. If that is the case please check Remind or Band App to see if class is cancelled. There will be no snow day allotted for each class this dance year. Each year it may change. So, if there is a snow day this year we will have a make-up day!!!!! Pictures will be the week after recital 17th, 18th, 19th.
Please do not feel you have to participate in the fundraisers, as it is simply and great option to help out financially. The total that you make on the fundraisers will go straight to your account unless otherwise noted. There will be certain fundraisers for the whole studio and others for our competition groups and traveling events to New York City, Bowl Games, Disneyworld.
Dropping a Class
You must notify Miss Becky promptly if doing so with a written note from parent and signature. Tuition will be dealt with as Miss Becky sees fit for each situation.
*Costumes are non-refundable. If a class is dropped after the costume deposit is made there will be NO refund given. If costumes have been ordered there is also no refund for this. You may pick up your paid costume when it arrives and no later than February of that dance year.
