COSTUME FEES for SPRING RECITAL:
A $30 Deposit for Each Costume is due by November 1, 2016.
The Balance for Each Costume is due by February 1, 2017.
Costumes fees are non-refundable and generally cost ~$45-$65 each.
Students who drop class after a deposit has been made are still responsible for paying the costume balance.
There is an Annual Recital which is typically held End of May or Early June and the date will be confirmed in the Fall and posted on our CALENDAR PAGE. Participation is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged. Students participating in the Recital must purchase a costume for each class that they are performing with. Note that the Recital may include ONE show or TWO seperate shows on the same day (afternoon and/or evening times) and that some students will be Required to participate in BOTH shows. We do our best to put siblings as well as students who are in multiple classes in the same show, but CANNOT guarantee this and scheduling won't be determined until Spring. Therefore, tickets may need to be purchased for both shows if your child is in both shows. Participation in the Recital cannot be guaranteed for students who were not enrolled in both Sessions I & II and/or have an excessive amount of unexcused absences. Upon Director's approval, private lessons may be arranged and scheduled according to teacher availability, but still cannot guarantee participation in recital. All students who choose to participate in the Recital are REQUIRED to attend the Dress Rehearsal. Dates will be confirmed in the Fall and are posted on our Calendar.
Registration Fees are Non-Refundable. Class Tuition Payments are Non-Refundable. NO deductions, pro-rating or refunds for student absences, late enrollment in any class or for students dropping classes for any reason including illness or injuries. Tuition Payments cannot be transferred to another person. Refunds will be given for Cancelled Classes ONLY
if another class cannot be provided. IF available and appropriate, Make-up classes for absences may be scheduled within 1 Month of the Absence. Perfect Attendance Certificates are handed out at the end of the school year for those who have perfect attendance.
INDIVIDUAL TEACHER CLASS CANCELLATIONS:
Our schedule allows for extra weeks in the school year calendar for teacher cancellations if need be and make-up classes will not be needed unless they excede the allotted weeks. We may provide a Substitue Teacher at our discretion and without notice. We will notify all by email regarding any cancellations. If make-up classes are necessary, we may scheule them at our discrection and may use originally scheduled holidays if need be. Those who cannot attend a scheduled make-up class will have the option to attend any other appropriate class at their convenience. No refunds for re-scheduled classes. Refunds will be given only if a make-up class has not been provided.
Service Charge of $20 per returned check.
SNOW CANCELLATION POLICY:
ONE Cancellation Per Session is allotted due to snow or other inclement weather and will not require a make-up. Any additional weather related cancellations will be made up. If the Framingham Public Schools cancel school for reasons such as snow or other inclement weather, the dance school will also cancel all classes that start before 3:00 PM. Classes starting after 3:00 PM will most likely
be cancelled, but be sure to call the studio for confirmation because there is a possibility
that classes may
be held. Saturday and Sunday classes must call the studio to check for cancellations. Call 508-875-2723
to check for cancellations which will be noted on the outgoing voicemail as need. We will also send a cancellation email.
Enrollment is ongoing throughout the year, however, limitations may apply.
With director and teacher approval, students may join level-appropriate classes if there are openings.
Class size is limited, therefore early registration is recommended and placement cannot be guaranteed.
It is most important that students be placed in a class with a level that is most suitable for them (age is secondary to level). Please respect teacher recommendations and understand that appropriate placement greatly benefits the student and is in their best interest.
