School Policies



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 for classes is a monthly tuition (regardless of the number of weeks or holidays in any month). Please see Holidays Closed on our 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 7th day of the month 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 7th day of the month (including payments mailed and postdated after the 7th day of the month). 

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.


If you are absent from a class, you may use a courtesy make-up in a comparable class.  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 taking a make-up class in a 90 minute class and are not enrolled in a 90 minute class, you will need to use two make-ups to take a make-up in a 90 minute class.

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 via e-mail by the 20th day of the preceding month if you are no longer attending class.


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


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.


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


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.
