Scheduling Changes

Class placement is based on the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus. All teachers on the faculty are qualified RAD instructors and can place students appropriately. Please direct any questions regarding placement to the director, Corinne Glover.

Class Placement

Regular class attendance is imperative for all students. If you miss two consecutive weeks without notifying the front desk you will run the risk of losing your child’s place in class. If you are dropped, a new registration fee will be charged when you return. Many classes are full and there are often students on a waiting list.

Please notify the office if the student will be absent from class, and a make-up class time will be given to you. Make-up classes are reserved for the occasional illness or conflict. Students may not use make-up classes as a way of moving from class to class or juggling other outside activities. If you have a prolonged illness you must speak to Ms. Maryann.

If you have questions regarding the appropriate classes for make-up, please contact the front office. ALL MAKE-UP CLASSES MUST BE MADE UP WITHIN 30 DAYS, NO EXCEPTIONS.

Please remember there are no credits for missed classes. Please do not ask for exceptions.

Attendance & Make-up Classes

All monthly tuition is due on the first class of the month. Rates are based on a four week month. However, there are five week months that fall during the year; these fifth week classes will be used by SCBA to offset holidays, exam weeks, and/or production weeks. You will be charged for these classes. There are no refunds or credits for the prorated months of December and June. You have the option to make up any missed classes.

Payment by check or cash can be put in the  payment box at the front desk. Please put the dancer’s name and class times on the front of your check for accurate accounting of all payments.

Credit Card payments: Tuition may be paid by credit card, a $2 processing fee will apply. We accept Visa MasterCard and Discover.

Payment for all private lessons MUST BE PAID FOR AT THE TIME OF THE LESSON OR BEFORE.

A $10 late fee will be charged to all accounts for tuition received after the 10th of the month, unless special arrangements have been made.

There will be a $25 NSF service charge for all returned checks.

Tuition & Payments

Double parking at the corner and along the street in front of the studio in order to drop off students is strictly prohibited.
PLEASE PARK AND WALK.

A half hour private will be given if only one student attends class on any given day.

At the discretion of the instructor, students may be asked to observe class only if they are: 10 or more minutes, dressed in improper attire, or are disrupting the class.

If you need to speak to an instructor regarding your child’s progress. PLEASE DO NOT DO SO BETWEEN CLASSES this takes away from teaching time. Please leave your name and phone number at the front desk and your call will be returned during morning office hours. You can also leave a message on the machine and every effort will be made to return your call within 24 hours.

For the safety of the dancers, please do not wait for parents outside the building, please wait in the studio.

NO GUM CHEWING IS ALLOWED IN THE STUDIO AT ANY TIME!

Bringing food and drinks into the studio during during weekday classes is strongly discouraged. If you have a child at the studio over the dinner hour, and they need to eat, you are responsible for cleaning up the food. This is not the Director’s responsibility.

Parents please monitor younger siblings. The lobby must remain quiet in order for our secretary to conduct business and speak on the phone. If you have younger children who are misbehaving please remove them from the lobby until they can become quiet.

We ask that all students do their best to help keep the studio clean. Please pick up all food, drinks, and personal items so that a professional and neat surrounding can be enjoyed by all. Thank you in advance for your help with this.
