    All students are required to wear some style of dance specific clothing (i.e., leotard and tights, dance pants, leggings, tank tops, etc).

All students must have their hair pulled back neatly and away from their face in a pony tail or bun.

    Recital Costumes :

    All registered students will be required to participate in the spring recital. Students receive a separate costume for each class they are enrolled (excluding 3/4 yr. old classes). Costumes cost on average $65 for 3 yr.-8 yr. olds and $75 for 9 yr.- older. A $25 costume deposit is required for each costume and is deducted from the total price of the costume. The balances are due November 1st, 2015. Balances are posted October 10th-October 17th, 2013 and late by November 1st, 2015. A written notice must be submitted before October 31st, 2015 to receive a refund for costume money. Recital tickets information will be released as we approach the event.


    Missed Classes/Class Make-up :

    If your child misses their regular scheduled classes, we encourage them to make up during another class of similar age and skill level within two weeks of the class missed. There are no refunds or discounts for missed classes. Please advise that make-up classes will not be offered after March 15th, 2016 because of the different recital dances in each class. If you desire to make-up a class after March 15th, please inquire within the office for an appropriate class and its time. You will be required to fill out a make-up slip to present to the teacher on the day of the class.
    egin in late May.


    Inclement Weather :

    In the case of inclement weather, we operate on the Wake County Public School policy. If Wake County Schools are closed due to inclement weather, the studio will also be closed unless we inform otherwise. Due to scheduling constraints, we are unable to reschedule entire classes. However, students may attend an appropriate class at their convenience in order to make up for their missed class. We do not refund or pro-rate tuition due to inclement weather closings. Notification of closing will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
