LATE NOTICES WILL BE GIVEN OUT. A 10% late fee will be added after the 10th of the month. Continued tuition delinquency will also result in the loss of a student's class space. Returned check charge is $25 per check. After two returned checks, we will no longer accept a check for payment.
Closed: We will be closed the weeks and days designated above. We will be closed the week of Fall Break and the week of Spring Break. We may also close due to inclement weather, please call the studio after lunch, and there will be a message if classes are cancelled! We will also post notices on our Facebook page and in our J4J Dancers group page.
Placement: Students will be placed with respect to their age, potential, and proficiency by the teacher. Please respect their opinions. Regular attendance is essential for your child's progress in dance. If your child must miss class, please ask her/his teacher for information on a make-up class for that week.
Dancewear: All students must wear appropriate dancewear and shoes for the classes they are taking. Shoes and dancewear must be on students by the second class. For ALL CLASSES: no jewelry and hair needs to be pulled back. BALLET: hair pulled back, leotard & tights, dance skirt, leg warmers (NO shorts). HIP HOP: shoes, shorts or leggings (NO jeans or street clothes). COMBO: leotard, tights, black patent tap shoes & pink leather ballet shoes. Any questions, see your instructor for details.
Please put student's name in all shoes and clothing that is used at the studio. All students need a dance bag to hold their dance shoes and belongings. Please check bags on a regular basis to make sure all of your child's shoes are accounted for before leaving.
If your student is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, etc.) or has been exposed to COVID-19, please do not bring them to the dance studio for at least 5 days of quarantine.
All students are required to arrive on time for their class, and while on the premises of the studio, conduct themselves in an orderly fashion. No one is allowed in the dance rooms unless a teacher is present.
Please do not leave your child unattended when they are not in class. We do not have anyone outside the classroom to care for unattended children. Also, please accompany children in and out of the studio for their safety, due to the heavy traffic and town creek, which is immediately behind the studio.
The waiting area in the studio will be open; however, social distancing is encouraged. For parents that haven't been vaccinated, we would encourage waiting in the parking lot. Students will be picked up at the side entrance door and returned to the front exit door by their teacher. Social distancing will be practiced by students and teachers. Students may wear their own masks if desired.
