At LA Dance, we believe that dance instruction should be enjoyable, built on a solid technical foundation, inspire creativity, and match each individual's goals. In order to be able to provide a warm, encouraging environment, we ask that all students and parents observe the following studio policies and procedures.
Attitude and Behavior
LA Dance provides a positive and safe environment for your child to experience dance. We have a zero tolerance policy regarding negative behavior exhibited by any student or parent. Violation of this policy will result in a student’s automatic and permanent withdrawal from LA Dance. If you ever have any questions or concerns regarding behavioral issues at the studio, they are to be addressed with studio management in person and in private.
Tuition & Other Fees
Tuition for LA Dance classes is due on the 1st day of every month. After the 8th day of the month, your account will be charged a $25 late fee. Accounts will continue to be billed until the studio is officially notified that a student has been withdrawn. Costs for costumes, shoes, competition/event fees, etc. must be paid in a timely manner.
If a student is unable to attend class, the parent is expected to notify the studio as soon as possible. If our voicemail is reached, please leave a detailed message. Please be advised that you will not be reimbursed for tuition paid for missed classes.
In case of inclement weather and dangerous driving conditions, please call the studio immediately. If classes are to be cancelled by LA Dance due to bad weather, you will receive a message to inform you of such.
Refunds, Credits, & Transfers
All funds received for class tuition, costumes, shoes, competition/event fees, etc. are NONREFUNDABLE unless participation in an event is cancelled by LA Dance. In the event that a student discontinues classes at LA Dance, all funds deposited will be forfeited.
