Bad Weather Policy
In the past it has been the policy of the studio to follow the JMCSS schedule for closing for inclement weather. This policy is no longer in affect. The studio will close for inclement weather and hazardous road conditions, but you must refer to the website homepage or our Facebook page for studio closings. You will not be notified individually.
We have days built into our school year schedule to cover 1 week of bad weather. If cancellations exceed 1 week make up classes will be offered.
Holidays have already been figured into your yearly tuition; therefore, monthly tuition payments remain the same throughout the school year. The studio will be closed on the following holidays.
Classes will not meet on the following dates.

A $15 late fee will be due on all monthly payments made after the 5th of the month.
Returned Check Fee
A $30 fee will be due on checks returned or automatic payments returned for any reason.
If you wish to withdraw from class before the end of the school year, a withdrawal form, available only in the studio office, must be filled out and signed 30 days in advance. You will be responsible for payment for 30 days after withdrawal forms are signed. Text messages, emails and conversations will not be accepted as an official class withdrawal.
**Class withdrawal does not apply to summer classes.
When enrolling in summer classes you are financially committed for the entire 4 weeks or in the case of a preschool dance camp, the entire camp.
No refunds or make-up classes will be given for absences, except in cases of prolonged illness (6 weeks or more).
Graduating High School Seniors
It has always been the goal of your studio to produce the best recital possible at the end of each season. In years past the size of the studio has afforded us the ability to give each graduating senior a full 2-3 minute solo. Your studio has experienced significant growth over the past several seasons which has made it necessary to change this policy. Starting in the 2015-16 season graduating seniors will not be offered a senior solo
