Once registered in the School you are liable for the full tuition payment due for the Year/Summer Session. If a student is unable to complete the Yearly Program/Summer Session due to health reasons a letter from your physician stating the students inability to participate for an extended period of time must be sent to the Director/School for non-liability of the full or remaining tuition due. A student’s place in class is held for them throughout the year or session, unless the School is notified of their withdrawal/inability to attend the School/ Session registered for. There is a $15.00 non-refundable annual registration fee due when enrolling your child. If you are aware in advance of previous commitments, obligations, or suffer health/injury occurrences you are welcome to utilize the School’s make-up policy. There are no refunds or pro-rating of classes. There will be a $25.00 service charge for any returned checks. For additional pricing information please visit our website at: dancecentrenorth.com
ATTENDANCE/MISSED CLASSES: Students absences due to illness or injury may be made up at the students convenience in another class time during the year, this applies also to classes cancelled due to inclement weather. Students in all levels within the school are required to take all the ballet classes in their division and are expected to arrive and participate in their classes on time, during the School Calendar Year and the Summer Session. Progress in class is dependent upon and the direct result of consistent participation in all classes in their level. Absences are considered excused only for medical reasons and must be phoned into the office. Classes may be made up in your own level or the level below. If a student has excessive absences, a meeting will be held with the Director/Faculty and the student and parents, to review the Level placement and continued training of the student. Be advised that casting for community performances and Dance Centre North productions is based on attendance, ability and consistent class participation in the student’s level and is dependent upon the Director/Faculty decision.
PROMPTNESS: Training in dance requires great concentration and focus, it is difficult for both the individual and the group when a student comes in late. Running late is sometimes unavoidable, however for the safety of your child and their training, please be prompt. It is important to remember to allow time to change clothes and use the bathroom before class. It is not safe to dance without warming up; therefore, any dancer Intermediate Level or above arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be allowed to participate in class. She/he will be only allowed to watch class and then make it up at a later date.
SCHOOL CLOSING/CHANGES: If the School needs to close due to inclement weather or other emergency situations, notification will be done through various options: Telephone calls will be placed, a message will be recorded on the school answering machine, Internet sites for local broadcasting stations will be notified and our Facebook status will be modified.
If you are aware in advanced of previous commitments, obligations, or health/injury occurrences, you are welcome to utilize the School’s make up policy.
