Please notify us if a student will not be in class: call 248.380.1666, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students are expected to attend classes regularly. Excessive absences are grounds for elimination from the class and any related performances including June Recitals. Individual instructors will determine if private tutoring (see Specialty Class Rates) is warranted.
Participation in Company Level Classes & Competition Team
Company Level classes require consistent attendance and a high level of commitment both personally and to your classmates. Excessive absenteeism is not allowed for any reason within the control of the dancer, i.e., conflicting membership on another team (sports, musicals, etc.). Individual instructors will determine if a student, and his/her classmates, will benefit from private tutoring (see fee schedule) in the event of a situation out of the control of the dancer, i.e. health or family issues, that affects the dancer’s ability to come to or participate regularly in class. Your acceptance of this class placement constitutes your agreement to abide by these rules to maintain your standing at this Company class level.
Bad weather may cause class cancellations. Students should phone the studio one hour prior to their class time for information. We won’t necessarily follow public school closings. If weather conditions throughout the year cause more than 2 cancellations, make-up classes will be scheduled by the instructor.
Leotard, tights, dance shorts or a ballet skirt are considered appropriate attire for all ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop and lyrical/contemporary classes. Proper shoes are mandatory for all classes. Students improperly attired will not be allowed to participate in class.
Detailed information regarding required attire and shoes for each class is is provided at time of registration and is also listed with our class descriptions on the web pages under the Dance Classes heading.
Our allotted spaces are in the rear of the building. Please enter through the Studio Entrance at the back of the building. PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF THE STUDIO WHEN DROPPING OFF DANCERS – PLEASE PULL INTO A PARKING SPACE OR DRIVE TO THE REAR ENTRANCE AND DROP OFF THERE.
Families will have an opportunity to view a portion of their child/s’ class once per month, on a date and time to be determined by each individual instructor; advanced notice of visitation days will be provided.
Tutiton and Costume Fees
All tuition and costume payment arrangements are due by the first class. For administrative efficiency, no exceptions will be made. Students may not begin classes until all tuition and costume payment arrangements have been finalized. See Tuition & Fees for details.
For tickets purchased on Ticket Day, seat selection will be on a first come/first serve basis. If a client has no preferences for seats, they may turn in their ticket request form prior to Ticket Day, and still receive the advanced purchase price.
