Dance Creations Academy Policies
Students must adhere to the dress code for classes except when taking for a short summer session or camp. Our dress code requirements are found here.
Our building is open only during class times. Please see the current schedule at the footer of our website.
Students are evaluated at the end of each session and given a written placement from their instructor for the following session. Ballet students levels 1b-5 are evaluated every March, July and December.
Students with previous experience, over age 8 and new to the studio should discuss placement with the Director by emailing Melissa at Melissa@DanceCreationsAcademy.com. We may have you come and take a placement class.
Regular attendance is important to maintain your technique & for learning performance piece. Please notify us by filling out an absence form in your customer portal when a student will be missing class.
You may schedule a make-up class at the same time as you fill out an absence form in your customer portal. Students may make up in any age/level appropriate class for any class missed. Make up classes expire after 6 months and classes may not be made up during summer camps or intensives. Classes may also not be made up in performance classes during the 4 weeks prior to our Spring Performance.
Please give at least one week notice prior to the first of the month via e-mail if you are dropping a class or changing your class schedule. Any unpaid balances will be charged prior to discontinuance of EFT. Class withdrawals made after the debit on the 1st of each month will be charged the full month. No refunds will be given. Dance Creations Academy reserves the right to terminate lessons of any student for any reason. In such a case a refund for unused lessons will be given.
Refunds will be given only if a class is canceled due low enrollment. Tuition is non-refundable, except in case of relocation, serious injury or prolonged illness, which prohibits the student from dancing. There will be no credit adjustments for voluntary withdrawal or for classes missed due to vacations, camps, school events, etc. Annual registration fee is non-refundable unless your class is cancelled by Dance Creations Academy.
Students must not enter dance studios without a teacher present. Food and drinks should be consumed in the break room only. Smoking is prohibited in Dance Creations Academy.
