ADMINISTRATIVE FEES & LATE PAYMENTS
MISSED CLASS/ MAKE-UP CLASS
No refund will be given for weather cancellations as well as classes that fall on a Statutory Holiday. No Credits or Refunds will be given for missed classes. Missed classes must be made up within the same term of your absence. Tuition cannot be “PAUSED” for extended absences. Students can make up classes before and after an extended absence. Please see the front desk for appropriate make up classes for your dancer. There are no make-up classes after April 1st.
Allegro Dance School reserves the right to cancel or amalgamate any classes temporarily or permanently due to emergency, weather conditions or enrollment less than five (5) students. In case of bad weather, please call the studio to confirm if classes will be held. The notice will also be posted on the website and our facebook page. Parents will not receive a phone call. Please ensure you have provided a valid email address in order to keep up with communication.
WITHDRAWAL & REFUNDS
- All fees (exam fee, costume fee, recital fee, photo fee) are non-refundable and non-transferable after deposit.
We have two performances throughout the year, December and June. The performance consists of short dances choreographed from steps that the studnets have worked on throughtout the terms. While participation is no mandatory, we find that the chance to perfrom is a rewarding and confidence building experience.
PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOTAPING DURING RECITALS
Videotaping and photo-taking during the recital is not allowed as per theatre's policy. The recital will be taped using professional equipment, and a digital copy will be availbe for purchase.
DROP OFF & PICK UP
Parents are welcome to drop their child off for dance class. Please be on time to pick up your child after class. If parent is not here within 5 minutes of the end of class, after the last class of the night, you will be charged $5 and $1 per minute thereafter to pay for the teacher or manager to stay and supervise your child.
COMMUNICATING WITH INSTRUCTORS
We have viewing windows so that parents may watch class the first full week of each month. Please DO NOT tap on the windows or wave at your dancers while class is in progress, especially for pre-dance and mini dance classes; when they know that you are watching, their focus can often move away from the teacher and the class. This can lead to your dancer concentrating on your approval or what you are doing, wondering why you are looking away, asking to leave class to ask/give you something, or even acting out to see your reaction. The most productive dance class situation is one where the parents drop off their young dancers and return about 5 minutes before the end of class. At this point, dancers are often at the point in the class structure where they have worked on a combination or short routine. They are very proud and excited for you to view it.
