Studio Guidelines  (Also refer to our Welcome page to view our studio policy)

 

Class Placement
Students are placed at the appropriate levels in each subject based on a combination of age, previous dance training, and their demonstrated skill. Changes may be suggested after classes begin to assure that each student receives the best possible learning experience.

Attendance
Regular attendance is expected for all students.  No refunds or discounts given for missed classes or vacations. Payment is due at the beginning of each month regardless of how many classes you are able to attend that month.

Snow Cancellations
If there is no school or an early dismissal due to inclement weather in the Lowell Public Schools, there will usually, not be dance classes. If there is a delay, due to inclement weather, there will not be any morning classes. In the event of a Saturday snowstorm please call the studio answering machine 1 hour prior to scheduled dance class. If you are unsure at any time, please call the studio answering machine at (978) 458-5502. No refunds will be given.

Shoes
Specific brand or style will be told at time of registration, and used throughout the season and for recital. Discounted shoes can be purchased at the dance studio for convenience before the start of the dance season. Please check for our shoe-fitting week prior to the new dance season.
