We are off to a great start this year! We are enjoying seeing familiar faces and getting to know some new ones too!
We are very proud of the dance community we are building here at The Dance Gallery and we always appreciate you telling your friends about us! If you know of anyone looking to DANCE please tell them how much you love The Dance Gallery. We have referral coupons in the office you can pick up and pass out to your friends. If the coupons are returned with a new registration, both of you will receive a credit on your account! Thank you again for your continued support!
Our Make-up Policy
If your dancer is absent and you would like to schedule a make-up class, you must call on or before the day your child is absent. Almost all of our children’s combo classes are FULL so we can only schedule one child at a time for a make-up so that we don’t overwhelm the instructor with too many dancers in the class. For children’s combo classes only two make-up classes are allowed in the fall semester and one in the spring semester. (Older dancers in technique classes need to talk with their instructor regarding make-up classes.) We do not pro-rate tuition due to absences.
Tuition and Drop Policy Reminder
If you are paying your tuition monthly, it is due on the 1st of the month. A $10 late fee is added to all accounts paid after the 10th. If you choose to drop a class, we must receive written notice before the 1st of the month. Otherwise, your account will be charged the current month’s tuition. Thank you!! You can pay your tuition online by clicking Here!
Halloween Dress Up Week
Your dancer may come to class dressed in their Halloween costume the week before Halloween (Oct. 24th – Oct. 30th). They must be able to move freely in them and they must wear their dance shoes. The studio will be CLOSED on Halloween (Thursday, Oct. 31st) for all afternoon and evening classes.
