​Studio Policies


TUITION

Tuition is due on the first of each month.  
Tuition is non-refundable. Tuition is based on a 10-month dance year and is broken down into 10 monthly payments (September to June). The monthly fee remains the same regardless of the number of classes in any given month. Most months have 4 classes, sometimes there will be 5 classes in one month. December and June are short months. There are no refunds given for missed classes, due to bad weather or absences. 
If the payment is received after the 10th of the month, there will be a $10.00 late charge. Dancers will not be allowed to participate in class if your account is more than 2 months past due. All delinquent accounts will be turned over to a collection agency. 

 
RECITAL COSTUMES: 
The Holiday Show costume payment is due on October 1st.  
A June recital costume deposit of $50.00 per costume is due on November 1st and is non-refundable. If the deposit has not been received by November 15th, a late fee of $10.00 will be added to each of the dancer’s costume(s). 

No costume will be given to the dancer until all costume(s) payments are paid in full. All June recital costumes must be paid in full by January 15th. If you terminate all dance classes after December 1st, you will be responsible for the full payment of the Holiday Show and June Recital costume(s).  

 
PAYMENT OPTIONS: 
You may pay with cash, checks, and credit or debit cards. Checks may be mailed (25 Old Dover Road, Suite D, Rochester, NH 03867) or dropped off at the studio. Do not send cash. Monthly automatic payment options are available.

DANCE ATTIRE: 
Dancers must wear appropriate dance clothes to class. Please check the dress code sheet. 

HAIR: 
Hair needs to be tied back securely during class. Please check the dress code sheet. 

SHOES: 
Dancers are required to wear the proper shoes to each class. Please check the dress code sheet. 


ATTENDANCE / ABSENCES: 
Attendance is taken at each class. Good attendance is very important to each dancer’s success, as well as the progress of the class as a whole. Please make every effort to have your child at class each week. Missing classes is inevitable, but excessive absences can become a problem. 


SICKNESS / INJURY: 
In the event of a dancer falling ill, please keep them home from class in order to reduce the chance of spreading the illness. If a dancer is injured they are encouraged to observe class. 


CHANGING OR TERMINATING CLASSES 
If you would like to change classes, add or remove a class, or completely terminate dance classes, an Add /Drop slip must be filled out by a parent. In order to be removed from financial obligation, we must receive your intentions to stop classes in writing at the start of the month you wish to stop. Add / Drop slips are available at the front desk. 

 
CLASS PLACEMENT: 
Dancers are placed according to age and ability. If a child is more advanced, a higher level of class may be needed to strengthen the dancer’s ability and give them a challenge. In most cases, dancers are with others their own age. 
Dancers are not placed because of friendships or how long they have been dancing. They are being placed strictly by the level of technique that they demonstrate on a weekly basis. A child is placed in a class where he/she will feel confident in order to promote the highest level of self-esteem. 
Please trust the staff’s years of experience in the decision for class placement. We are professionals and always act in the best interest of the dancer. Dancers progress at different levels and advancing a dancer before they are ready can create stress, a loss of interest and discouragement. 

 
DROPPING OFF AND PICKING UP: 
Dancers are not allowed to stand outside the building to wait for their ride. 
Small children need to be escorted to and from the studio. Please do not encourage your dancer to find you out in the parking lot. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes early to class. The studio will be considered open 15 minutes before the first class of the day. The door will remained locked until that time. Please remember, Corinne’s School of Dance is not a daycare. We do not want to be responsible for dancers that arrive too early or are not picked up on time. If you have arrived early, you must wait with your child until it is time to start class. Dance rooms will remain closed until the instructor opens the door to enter. Teachers come in early to prepare for class. Please do not open the doors until the instructor is ready. 

Creative Dance/Happy Feet Students: Before class begins, please try to have the dancer’s dance shoes on. If you are late arriving to class, please stand outside of the dance room and put your dancer’s shoes on so there are no interruptions during the class. Please have your dancer use the bathroom BEFORE class, as bathroom trips during class are very disruptive and can be "contagious".  

 
KEEPING YOU INFORMED: 

Full class schedules are located on our website at www.corinnesschoolofdance.com. 
If you are unsure about any times, dates or places of any up-coming events just check the board for the answer. We will also post things on the dance studio doors as reminders to you. It is your responsibility to keep informed of all dates. 

 
MORE UPDATES: 

As the season progresses, more information or updates may become available. These will be made available through monthly newsletters, notices posted on the walls and on the bulletin board at the studio. Make it your responsibility to keep abreast of this very important information. Please make it a priority to keep updated with the latest information. 

 
THANK YOU: 

Thank you for taking the time to read this informational packet. We cannot stress how important it is for the dancers and parents to keep the lines of communication open. If a problem or concern arises, please speak to us immediately so a solution can be accomplished. Without feedback we cannot solve problems for you and your family.
