School Policies

 

REGISTRATION

A registration form/waiver must be completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian before any class is taken.

There is a $15 registration fee. If you discontinue classes for any reason, and then return, you will be required to pay the registration fee upon re-enrolling.

TUITION

Tuition for classes is a monthly tuition (regardless of the number of weeks or holidays in any month). Please see Holidays Closed on this website.

Tuition is paid in advance and is due on the 1st day of each month.  We accept credit card payments and offer a recurring payment option.  If your first class falls on a holiday or you are absent, you may mail your tuition payment to Pacific Dance, BUT it must be postmarked before the 10th in order to avoid a $15 late fee. 

No statements will be mailed to you unless your tuition is late.

A $15 late fee will be charged for all tuition payments received after the 10th of the month (including payments mailed and postdated after the 10th). 

A $35 fee will be charged on all returned checks.

NO credit or refund is given for absences, tuition, costumes, competition fees or convention fees.

If you are dropping classes, you must notify us via e-mail by the 20th day of the preceding month, or you will be charged for your classes for the following month.

We offer a recurring credit card charge for the 1st day of each month.  You must notify us via e-mail by the 20th of the month preceding the month you would like to drop, so we can deactivate your recurring charge.

ABSENCES

If you are absent from a class, you may take a make-up in a comparable class (except in Acro Jazz, unless you are enrolled – this is for safety reasons). A make-up must be taken no later than one month from the date of the absence, and you must be currently registered in a class.  Make-ups are non-transferrable. Pacific Dance has the right to refuse the use of a make-up should the class size be too large on the day of a make-up, or if the level/age is not appropriate for the student.  

If you are absent more than two consecutive times in any class without notice, you may be dropped upon the third absence from that class. When you return, you may re-enroll (if there is availability in that class).  Please give us notice if you are no longer attending class.

ATTIRE

Proper dancewear and shoes are required for all classes. Please see Dance Attire on this website for details.

RECITAL

Our annual Recital is optional.  If you decide to participate in the Recital, you are required to have good attendance in your class(es), purchase the assigned costume(s), tights and shoes, and attend mandatory rehearsals and all scheduled recital performances.

If your account balance is not paid in full prior to the Mandatory Dress Rehearsal date for the Recital, your child will not be able to participate in the Recital.

SUPERVISION OF STUDENT

Children are supervised during class time only and should not be dropped off early or picked up late.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOTAPING

Unless prior parental and teacher authorization has been given, no photography or videotaping is allowed at Pacific Dance of any student other than your own.

In order to maintain the quality level of dance training at Pacific Dance, classes run year-round.  Very often our classes are full, so space may be limited.   If you drop your class(es), your space in that class cannot be held.  If you have any questions, please feel free to speak with us.
