Costume Payments

Perfect Pointe ends each year with a recital showcase.  Students in one recital dance are required to pay the costume fee in full by October 19th.  Students in more than one recital dance are required to pay half of their total costume payment by October 19th and the remaining balance by November 15th.  Costume payments are NOT refundable.  In the event a student needs to withdraw from a class, the office must be notified. 

Please Note:  Accounts must be current in order to receive costumes and/or purchase recital tickets.  Payment of an overdue account will include late fees.  Students who fall more than two months behind on tuition payments will not be allowed to take class until past due money is paid in full.  Tuition is non-refundable.

We accept all major credit cards, with the exception of America Express.

 

 Attendance / Cancellations

Regular attendance is essential for your child’s progress.

*NO refunds for any missed lessons.
*If parent or guardian is not picking up the child, please notify the office who will be picking up your child. Students who are 12 yrs. and younger MUST wait in the waiting are for their parent to pick them up.
*If students are going to be absent from a dance class, please notify the office prior to the class time. Also makeup classes are available. Call the studio for a day and time!
*Each student should arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of class to change, put on shoes etc. Students should be picked up no later than 10 min. after their classes is dismissed. In the case of free time between classes, dancers are encouraged to bring homework to keep them busy.
~STUDENTS MUST MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ATTEND EVERY “PERFECT” CLASS!

Inclement Weather
In the event of bad weather, please either check our Facebook page or this website.  If there isn't a message or post saying the studio is closed, you should assume that there will be dance classes that day. There are no refunds for classes due to inclement weather. Students are encouraged to take a make-up class. Call the studio to find a class that best suits your child!


Levels and Moving Up
Students do not move up to the next level according to the amount of years that they have studied dance. They must be able to execute proper technique for each movement to the fullest for that level. Once the teacher or director has determined that the student is ready to move up, then and only then will the student be moved to a higher level. Some students may take several years and others only one, according to natural ability, effort, and practice. Remember: POOR ATTENDANCE WILL AFFECT PROGRESSION.

Obervation
Parents are encouraged to view their child in class in the waiting area on the T.V. There will be a designated parent observation day throughout the year for parents and other special family members to come and enjoy their child in dance class! Cameras and videotaping are welcome too!

Conduct
Students and parents are expected to conduct themselves in an orderly, courteous, and respectful manner. Students waiting for class are expected to wait in a quiet manner and come to class prepared with proper dancewear, shoes, and hair pulled back and off of face. *Students who are dressed professionally for class will dance professionally in class.*
