Policies

TUITION


It is school policy that there are no refunds on tuition for any reason. Please do not register unless you plan to attend class regularly. The dance year begins in September and goes through the middle of June.  Monthly tuition is computed on the entire dance year and is the same each month, including those shortened by holidays and breaks.


PAYMENT OF TUITION


All tuition is due the first of the month and must be paid by the 10th of each month.  Any payment not made by the 10th will be charged a late fee regardless of what day the 10th may fall on.  Tuition payments may be paid by cash or check made payable to The Dance Connection.  There will be a $25.00 service fee on all returned checks.


INCLEMENT WEATHER


If the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools are closed due to snow, there will be no classes. If Plymouth-Canton Community Schools are closed due to cold weather we will remain open.  We post all studio closing on our Facebook Page and Twitter account.  If you are unsure, please call before coming to the studio. We cannot call every student about weather related closings.


IN-SERVICE SCHOOL CLOSINGS


The studio will be open for all in-service school closings by Plymouth-Canton Community Schools.


HOLIDAYS


The studio will be closed on Halloween.  We will observe the Plymouth-

Canton Community Schools schedule for Thanksgiving break, Christmas break, Mid-Winter break, and Memorial Day.  For Easter break we will close starting on Good Friday and reopen the following Friday.


MISSED CLASSES


All dancers who miss a class may make-up a class at any other time during the week.  A secretary at the front desk will be happy to help you find the correct make-up class.  No makeup classes will be available in April, May, or June due to rehearsal for the recital during class time.


OBSERVATION OF CLASSES


It is our belief that students work more productively when not observed. Teachers need the student’s full attention without interruption or distraction to teach effectively. For this reason, parents, friends, and family members will be able to observe their child’s class through a watch window the first week of each month.  If you child’s class is held in a room without a window you will be invited in to observe the class for the last 5 minutes each week.


NEWS/ANNOUNCEMENTS


Studio newsletters will be handed out in class in September, October, January, March, and May.  The most current newsletter can also be found on our website.  Each month parents will receive an email update about events happening at The Dance Connection.
