Studio Policies

ATTENDANCE

  To achieve the most beneficial results, regular class attendance is important. Per our studio's policy, the only acceptable reason for missing a class is due to illness or family bereavement. If a student misses a class due to any other reason, our studio will not prorate, refund or credit for that unattended class.

  If a student misses a class without proper notification (3 hour notice) as specified via email or phone to our studio, regardless of reason for the absence, Silhouette Dance Studio shall reserve the right to deny refund for that class.

  Our studio reserves the right to modify our class schedule based on business needs at our own discretion, and will notify our customers of this change.


HOLIDAYS

  Due to the fact that there are months during the year which have five weeks and no additional charge is made, full tuition is expected during months which include a holiday.


WITHDRAWAL

  When a student enrolls, his/her place in class is reserved for the year. If the student wishes to withdraw from a class, please notify the dance studio so that we can fill the place in class with someone on our waiting list.


STUDENT CONDUCT:

  While in class, each student is expected to show respect for the instructor and the other members of the class. Our students learn to respect others as we treat them with respect. We expect each student to participate fully during class. However, no student is expected to do any more than what he/she is capable of doing.

Please arrive on time as every minute of each class is of value. It is also disruptive to the class when students arrive late. If the student is early, please be prepared to wait in the reception area and enter the classroom when invited by the teacher.

Please visit the restroom before class.

No food or drinks in the studio area. No gum anywhere.

Come to class in dance attire - including shoes. If you come to class in inappropriate clothing or street shoes, you will be asked to watch class instead of participating.

Be prepared to fully concentrate on the lesson during class time. Visit your friends before and after class, but not during.

Practice during the week so you will come to class prepared to briefly review and then move on to learning something new.

Offensive language and/or behavior will not be tolerated.

Use of cell phones is not permitted in the classroom.
