1) Payment Policy
We require payment in advance on a monthly basis. All payments are due on the 1st of the month. No refunds are given for days when the student is not in attendance. Students may take a make-up class for the class missed if it is possible for them to do so.
Late Payment: A $10 late fee will be added to accounts that do not remit payment by the 10th of the month. If no payment is made student may be asked to leave class.
Private lessons: A 48 hour cancellation notice in writing via email or text is required to not be charged for the lesson.
Cancellation of Classes: If classes are canceled due to the fault of the company the time will be made up, or fees will be deducted from the following month’s fees. We retain the right to change the advertised program of classes in the event of illness or other circumstances beyond our control such as bad weather.
2) Cancellation of Monthly Notice Policy
Notice of four weeks must be given in writing if a child wishes to cease attending lessons. Fees will still be due even if the student is unable to attend class until the completion of the notice period. Fees will not be refunded if a student decides to leave during the course. Should a student leave for medical purposes (a Doctor’s letter will be required in these circumstances) membership may be paused.
3) Attendance Policy
It is a fundamental necessity for the teacher/choreographer to have the time to work with the students; therefore all pupils are expected to meet a 80% minimum attendance. Parents are asked to contact us when their child is absent giving an indication of the reason. Choreography for Performances: When working towards group choreography for competitions or performances, should attendance drop bellow 80% we reserve the right to alter students’ positions and if deemed necessary, he/she will be removed from a section or the whole piece.
4) Lateness Policy
Students are expected to arrive on time. Dance is a physical activity that requires the body to be warmed up in order to execute movement safely. Late students miss the proper warm-up and therefore may sustain an injury. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late may be asked to observe the class for reasons of health and safety.
5) Dress Code
Students must present themselves in a tidy manner at all times.
Correct uniforms must always be worn. Students that are not dressed appropriately will not be allowed to take a class. If you have any questions regarding the dress code for a particular lesson, please ask the teacher or email [email protected]
6) Behavior Policy
During sessions, students are expected to behave in a polite manner. They are expected to listen and we discourage unnecessary talking. If a student is causing disruption to others’ learning they may be asked to leave the class.
Our prime responsibility is the welfare and well being of all students in our care. As such we believe that we have a duty to the students, parents and staff to act quickly and responsibly in any instance that may come to our attention. Any physical activity has inherent risks of bodily injury, and by agreeing to our terms and conditions you agree that you will not hold Perform Orlando Arts Inc. responsible for any injury or accident that happens during classes and/or rehearsals.
