This will be at the discretion of the instructor. We have a professional staff to ensure that the student is being placed in the class best suited for them, and ensure quality instruction at the correct level.
Our staff is very busy and has scheduled classes back to back. To best meet your needs and ensure the quality of each class, please set up an appointment with the office to meet with the instructor. We do care.
*Also parents, friends, or relatives will not be allowed in the studio rooms. This distracts some students and disrupts learning. Please use the observation doors, your children will be just as happy to see you there.
To ensure a quality-performing environment each student is required to pay a recital fee, before the Christmas holidays. Each student will also be required to purchase a costume at the teachers' discretion. The costume must be paid in full before the break or costume will not be ordered. No refunds will be given on costumes and shall be altered at the expense of the parent. Also, all balances must be up-to-date or student will be asked not to perform. Finally, student must also attend all rehearsals prior to performance or will not participate. Our goal is to build confidence and help each student to experience and appreciate the art of performing. Please help us do that.
