Policies

Dance fees are scaled

The more you dance, the more your cost-per-hour of instruction drops.

Dance with your siblings and dance lots! A maximum per-student and per-family cap is in place.

We’re happy to chat about specific fee guidelines. Just give us a call (780) 569-5440.

Age is just a guideline

We will move you up a level during the dance year if we believe that it will be beneficial for your development as a dancer. We want you to thrive by giving you the right amount of challenge. That’s why we consider age categories as approximate.

Your class schedule may change

Our small class philosophy allows our teachers to monitor your progress closely. You might learn quickly and find the class you are enrolled in is too easy. Instead of making you feel stuck and bored, we will make changes in class placements during the first several months of instruction and throughout the year for non-competitive dancers.

Our director will contact you if a class change is recommended to optimize your dance experience.

Small classes are great for learning

  • Smaller classes mean more individual attention for our dancers.
  • Maximum number of students in pre-school, pre-competitive, and ballet syllabus classes is 12.
  • Minimum number of students in a class is 4.  If the registration drops below 4 students, classes will be either combined or cancelled at the discretion of the director.

Costume deposit

  • An $85.00 costume deposit must be received by Oct. 31st.  This is for all dancers taking part in Festivals and Competitions.
  • The $85.00 costume deposit is non-refundable if a student withdraws from class after Nov. 1st.

Tuition and withdrawals

  • Registration fee is $25.00/individual and $35.00/family (non-refundable) for all programs except the intensive program.
  • $100/dancer non-refundable deposit is required for registrations in the Intensive Program.
  • Payment for the year’s tuition (based on a 36 week dance year) is divided into ten equal payments.  The tenth payment is due upon registration.
  • The remainder of the monthly payments can be paid by:
    • Cheque (our preference is to receive a series of 9 post-dated cheques on registration; $25.00 fee for cheques returned NSF)
    • or Credit card starting September 1
  • 5% discount on the year’s tuition if paid in full by debit, cash or cheque by September 10, 2019.
  • Written notice of withdrawal must be given to the office with a months’ notice.  Fees due are calculated according to the number of classes completed prior to the date of withdrawal.
  • Registration fees, first & tenth payments, and Sessional Dance fees are non-refundable unless a medical certificate is provided indicating a reason for withdrawal.
  • No refunds will be issued for missed classes.
  • No refunds will be issued after March 1, of the current dance year.
