Attendance

Regular class attendance is vital to personal skill development and to maintain a consistent skill level within a class. There are no refunds for classes missed, but dancers may make up missed classes, with prior approval. Dancers may take a make-up class in the same or lower level. In the case of planned absences, make-up classes may be taken prior to the absence. Make-up classes must be completed during the current enrolled trimester and may not be taken during observation week.

Tardiness

Tardiness is disruptive to the class and may be harmful to a dancer’s health if proper stretching and warm-up is skipped. Please arrive at the studio with ample time to prepare for your class to begin! Full participation in class for tardy students will be at the discretion of the teacher.

Withdrawal

If your student must withdraw from a class, please note that the tuition balance is due and payable upon withdrawal – unless, you have a physician’s written assessment that indicates that the student may not continue to dance. In this case, we will provide a pro-rated refund based on the date of request for withdrawal.

Office Hours

The Dance School is a non-profit organization. We employ one part-time Executive Director, who handles all administrative responsibilities. Office hours vary, but will be posted weekly on the board by the office. Appointments to meet at other times can be arranged by calling 425-259-6861 or by email at: admin@thedanceschool.org.

Discipline

It is vitally important that we maintain a classroom environment that is safe and conducive to learning for all our students. Students who are unable to meet behavioral expectations will be handled on a case-by-case basis, with parent notification if the teacher is unable to resolve the issue. If you have any questions about class management, please speak with the teacher or the director.

Student Code of Conduct

Students learn better in a secure orderly and non-disruptive environment. The goal of The Dance School Students’ Code of Conduct is to help students and teachers create an environment that is conducive to teaching and learning.

At The Dance School clear and reasonable rules are fairly and consistently implemented. We reserve the right to inform a student that s/he should seek instruction elsewhere if his or her behavior – or that of the parent, family members or caregivers – is disruptive or disrespectful.

A safe and positive learning environment for students and adults is essential to our success and we appreciate your commitment to these principles.

Four General School Rules:

1.             Listen politely and follow directions.

2.             Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself.

3.             Be courteous and polite. Respect the rights of others and respect the property of The Dance School.

4.             Use appropriate language.

Expectations for Student Behavior:

1.             Students will arrive to class on time, will be dressed in appropriate attire and have hair secured properly.

2.             Students will listen carefully and respectfully to their instructors and administrators.

3.             Students under the age of 18 will ask for assistance from the adults in charge when they have trouble with another student.

Snow Policy

In the case of inclement weather, we follow the Everett School District closure for our morning classes (classes scheduled before 3 pm). Please note that evening classes may be held if weather conditions change. When in doubt, please call the studio at 425-259-6861 for up-to-date information.

Class Observation/Demonstration

We invite family and friends to observe class during a scheduled observation week of each trimester. Other in-studio observation opportunities will be at the discretion of the teacher. Designated waiting areas are provided for non-visiting days. There is a year-end performance at the Everett Performing Arts Center in the spring. See our list of important dates for this year’s schedule.

Food & Beverage

We have some of the finest dance studios in the region, and we want to keep it that way! We have a kitchen and eating area on the east end of the lobby, with a sink and refrigerator. Please restrict food and beverage to that area and please clean up after yourself. There is absolutely no eating in the dressing rooms and studios.

    I am a dancer (BA in dance from UC Irvine) who has not danced for about 4 years and would like an adult ballet class. Is there a “drop-in” class available for me to try and if so, what would be the cost?
