Class Info & Policies

Attendance
Regular attendance is essential for a dancer to show progress in technique. It is also much appreciated by the staff and the rest of the class if all dancers arrive on time. Classes meet every week unless there is a holiday. Please refer to our calender.

Tuition
Tuition is based upon the total number of classes in the nine month period and is divided into 9 equal payments. The monthly fee is NOT based on the actual number of classes in that month. There are several discounted payment options available also. Tuition is due by the 10th of the month.

Cancellation of Class
Class cancellations due to illness or inclement weather will be posted on Facebook and an email sent to those families who provided email addresses for our records. There will also be an outgoing message placed on the studio phone. In addition, weather-related cancellation notices will be posted on WPXI, WTAE, and KDKA websites and MAY BE broadcast on the television stations (at stations' option).
