Procedures and Policies

Severe Weather or Emergency Closings

Our rule of thumb is “If it’s a watch, we dance, if it’s a warning, stay home.” We try to follow the Houston County Schools system’s weather announcements and closings as well. When in doubt, check our website or facebook page for weather related announcements.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition is due on the 5th of the month. Late fees are assessed on the 6th. Sign up for automatic Epayments during registration and never miss a payment!

Class Progress and Attendance

It is important to attend every class in order to benefit from consistent training. Promptness is also important. It is disrupting to a class when a student comes in after the lesson is in progress or needs to leave early. If a student is absent from class, they are responsible material taught in the missed class. New steps cannot be taught again and again, since this would not be fair to all faithful attendees. Private lessons are available, and must be scheduled through the front desk.

Absences

Per the Academy Regulations, between January 7th and May 31st, students who have more than 4 absences in a subject will not be eligible to perform that routine in the annual production without a private lesson with their instructor. Of course, if a student is sick, we do not expect them to attend class. That is why we have a lenient policy allowing 4 absences per subject, before this regulation goes into effect. It is a privilege to perform in the annual production and your classmates are counting on you and your professional commitment. No production refunds will be issued after November 1st.

Online/Social Media policy

We love staying in contact with you! But please respect the privacy of our studio instructors and staff while not at work. All official correspondence with our faculty and staff needs to go thru the studio office during normal work hours.  Thank you for your understanding.
