POLICIES AND GUIDELINES
Our Policies: At Dance Classics in Murfreesboro, we want our students to get the most out of every class. Our goal is to provide a fun, educational and positive experience to our students. The following policies and guidelines have been established so that we can dedicate time to best serve our families.
Classes will begin and end at the scheduled time. Please make sure that your dancer is ready for class before the scheduled start.
It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to accompany students to and from the studio. Dance Classics does not assume the responsibility for students arriving early nor does it accept responsibility for students who leave the studio after instruction when no one is waiting for them. Please wait until class has begun and be available to meet your student when class ends. Students should remain in the building until a parent or guardian arrives.
If a class is missed, a student is entitled to a make-up class designated by the instructor. The make-up class must be taken within one month of the absence. All classes must be paid for even if the class is not made up.
Please notify the studio of any changes in transportation arrangements. If a student is going to be picked up by someone other than specified in the registration form, please notify a staff member.
Dance Classics does not follow a specific school district when canceling classes due to severe weather. A cancellation will be posted on Dance Classics’ facebook page and a text message or email will be sent to the family contact on record. There will be no refunds for cancellations due to weather. Tuition is based on an annual fee and not dependent on the classes per month.
Personal appearance in dance is an important aspect of the discipline of dance. A neat appearance and proper dress code will be enforced. Hair must be pulled securely off the neck and should not be falling into the eyes. Ponytails, braids, and ballet buns are all acceptable. Please consult your instructor if you have any questions.
ALL DANCE ATTIRE CAN BE PURCHASED THROUGH DANCE CLASSICS FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE.
Year-End Recital and Costume Fee
THERE WILL BE AN OPTIONAL END OF THE YEAR PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL STUDENTS OF DANCE CLASSICS. THIS IS AN EXCITING AND WONDERFUL WAY FOR THE DANCERS TO DISPLAY WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED THROUGH THE YEAR IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE. BY NOVEMBER 1ST, YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED OF THE FINAL COSTUME BALANCE AND PAYMENT IS DUE BY NOVEMBER 15TH. ANY COSTUMES ORDERED AFTER JANUARY 1ST, 2023 WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE CHARGED A $10 LATE PROCESSING / SHIPPING CHARGE.
Tuition Rate Schedule
Tuition is calculated monthly based on the number of classes taken by the family per week.
1 class per week = $ 72 per month
2 classes per week = $ 112 per month
3 classes per week = $ 142 per month
4 classes per week = $ 162 per month
$20 for each additional class after the 4th
Tuition is an annual fee billed each month and is not dependent on the number of days in each month. Monthly tuition must be paid by credit / debit card payment. Tuition will be charged to your credit / debit card on the 1st day of each month. If you’d prefer to pay via cash or check, payment must be received three days before the 1st of the month. A $15 late fee will be charged if payment is not made by the 10th of the month.
Completing a registration form either online or in person and paying a non-refundable registration fee will hold a place in your desired class(es).
Please call the studio at 615-378-7152 if you are unsure of which class(es) to sign up for. Scheduled class times are subject to change based on student enrollment.
You will be notified if a class you have requested has been filled or canceled. There is a $35 non-refundable fee per family due at the time of registration. Registration fees will only be refunded if a class is canceled due to low enrollment and the student can’t be placed in a suitable replacement class.
