Policies

TUITION

Tuition payments are due 1st of each month.  If tuition is not paid by the 10th of the month, a $15 Late Fee will be charged if previous arrangements have not been made in the office.  Students whose accounts are not up to date by the third week of the month will not be permitted to take class until the account has been discussed with a Company C representative to arrange payment.  All returned checks will be assessed a $25 service fee.  Tuition is non-refundable.  Tuition will not be reimbursed due to absences of any kind and tuition will not be prorated.  Tuition is paid monthly and calculated based on the number of classes taken throughout the year to account for shorter and longer months and holidays.  Monthly tuition is due regardless of attendance.  If for any reason, a student is unable to attend class it is the parents responsibility to notify Company C.  The parent must submit in writing a letter of withdrawl from class in order to not be charged that months tuition. 

 

REGISTRATION FEES

All students are asked to complete a registration form with current information and a waiver of liability.  A Non-Refundable $35 Registration Fee is required each year $25 per additional dancer and is applicable through July 2019. 

 

 

FUNDRAISERS

Various fundraisers will be held throughout the dance year.  Fundraisers are completely optional.  All profits raised apply directly to your account.  Fundraising profits may not be cashed out.  You will be notified before participation if any fundraiser is being designated for studio expenses and not your direct accounts (i.e. props, music, rental fees etc.).

 

CLASSES

Students will be placed in their appropriate classes based on age and skill level.  It is at the discretion of Company C as to which classes they will be eligible to enroll in.  In order to give the dancer the best instruction possible, instructors have the authority to request that students be moved to higher or lower level class if necessary based on their performance.

CONDUCT & BEHAVIOR

All students are asked to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of their class.  Students may enter and place any bags and items in the cubbies located in the hallway.  Parents, family and friends are asked to remain in the lobby during classes.  Visitors are not permitted in the dance room during class unless it has been pre-approved by a Company C instructor.  No food or drink is permitted on the dance floor.  All trash and belongings should be cleaned up from the dance room and/or lobby before each student leaves. There is no food allowed in the dance studio at any time.  Only water or capped bottle drinks are allowed.  Food is only allowed only in the breakroom.

 

Students are asked to remain quiet during class out of respect for their classmates and instructors.  Disobedient, rude and argumentative behavior towards other students or instructors is not tolerated.  Students will be given a warning for any inappropriate behavior.  If the student receives two warnings, they will be asked to leave the classroom.  Parents, family and friends waiting in the lobby are asked to follow the same principals.  Gossiping & critiquing only disrupts a positive environment.  If a parent has any issues or concerns, please bring them directly to a Company C instructor in a timely and private manner.  All children not participating directly in class should be under the supervision of an adult.  Dancers are not permitted to arrive early and stay late.  No food is permitted from siblings or adults in the studio as well except the breakroom.  No GUM is permitted at any time.  Please check the bathrooms after your dancers to ensure that toilets and items left behind are handled in the appropriate manner. 

 

HOLIDAY & SCHOOL CLOSINGS

Company C will generally follow the school closings for Muscogee County.  Absences from class for other school system closings will be taken into consideration.  In the event that regular school is cancelled for any reason or after school activities are cancelled due to extreme weather conditions, Company C will follow the same procedures.  Notices will be sent as soon as possible via email and social media postings.

*Competition Team members may be required to attend rehearsals and/or competitions during scheduled breaks.

ANNUAL RECITAL

All dancers will be included in our Annual Spring Production generally the weekend following Memorial Day at the RiverCenter for Performing Arts.  Costume deposits are due beginning in October and balances paid January.  If for any reason the dancer will not be able to participate in the show the office must be notified before costumes are ordered.  Please see the parent handbook located in your portal for more information.
