DANCEMOVES Studio

< Things You Should Know

1-Tuition is due every 4 weeks on your child’s
FIRST DANCE DAY OF THE BILLING CYCLE WEEK!

    a)It is due when your child walks in the studio door with the FIRST class of the tuition         week. (The dates are all on the calendar I have distributed, posted on the outside studio     door& front window & will be posted on the web site-
    www.dancemoves-studios.com passsword-tatertots)
    b)If your child is absent on their regular tuition “day”, payment must be dropped off at         the studio or in the studio mail slot within 3 days.

If you choose to be billed by invoice there will be a 10 % surcharge for the service. Late charges are AS FOLLOWS:. $50 or less is $5
                                              
$51-$99-$10 late charge
                                               $100-$150-late charge of $12
                                               $151 & over-late charge is $15.
If entire balance is not paid on time late charges continue to accrue & are paid first..
LATE PAYMENTS ON “CALENDAR” ACCOUNTS WILL BE CHARGED 10% + LATE CHARGES LISTED BELOW. There is a $20 fee for all returned checks.

THERE ARE NO LONGER ANY EXCEPTIONS TO LATE CHARGES.

2-Your child should be dressed properly for dance class.
    a)Leotard & tights (for all ages) Ballet skirts for k & up, dance pants are dancers choice.
    b) No dance shorts for beg. & int. dancers.
    c) No t-shirts. Leotards are preferred for all ages. Dance shirts hide body position.
    d) Please do NOT layer dance pants. Layers of dance clothes hide leg & body positions.
    e) It is necessary for dance pants to be shortened (not pinned) to the proper length.
    Dancers will be asked to remove pants that are too long. Tights are required under
     dance pants..

    f) No writing on dancer butts.
    g) No underwear under leotards.

Dancers not dressed properly will be asked to call home for dance clothes & watch the dance class until the proper dance clothes arrive. Dirty dance clothes are not an excuse.




3-No jewelry is allowed. This includes necklaces, bracelets, anklets, rings, dangly earrings & pony tail holders on their wrists. Please make sure these items are left at home. DANCEMOVES is not responsible for lost items.

4-Tap shoes with the exception of pre-school classes will be tan. Leo‘s split sole tap shoes, tan jazz shoes, lyrical shoes, white acrobatic shoes, pink ballet shoes-preferably split soles & in any case not Pay-less or Wal- Mart. The $8 ballet shoes have no flexibility.

5-Dancers should have water or a sports drink with them. Please make sure they discard the bottle or take it with them. Water is for sale at the studio for $1.00 per bottle.

6-All dancers in 5-6-7-8 Dance, Inc. EXCLAMAT!ON, & Kidazzle &/or attending conventions &competitions are required to have DANCEMOVES jackets, t-shirts, dance pants, and dance bag.

7-All dancers in the performance group are required to attend all performances. If this is too much for your child to handle please let me know. Absence at performances (as well as regular dance class) is very UNFAIR to the dance team.

8-Dancers in Tues. Thurs. adv. Sat. classes EXCLAMAT!ON & KIDAZZLE.......
and not their parents.....are required to CALL if they will be absent...unless they have laryngitis or are on their “death bed”. These classes REQUIRE commitment. Too many absences will result in being dropped from the routines. Costume charges & Showcase Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

9-If Dancers in Kidazzle, or EXCLAMAT!ON, & are going to drop any dance classes (for any reason) the first class to be dropped will be the precision group. This has been the unwritten rule for 10 years and has been the written rule for the past 6 years. These groups are all about commitment to the group and to dance as an art form.

Thank you for your support. Elizabeth & I are looking forward to an amazing dance year!
