Studio Policies

Safety
  • Parents/Drivers should plan to drop-off and pick-up children on time.
  • We DISCOURAGE all children from waiting alone in the parking lot for their ride.
  • No one is allowed in any studio without a teacher present, without permission.
  • No running or misbehaving anywhere in the building.

Attendance
  • Students should arrive on time, or a bit early, and be prepared for classes. Please allow a few minutes for your child to adjust from their previous activity to the dance studio. Older dancers should arrive early enough to allow themselves to warm up prior to class.
  • Students should attend class on a regular basis for continued growth in technique.
  • Parents should notify the studio if their child will not be attending class.
  • Students must be on time and properly attired before class begins.
  • Missed Classes / Make Ups - Any classes missed due to illness or inclement weather may be made up. There are no credits or refunds for missed classes.  In 2015,  FDO reduced the monthly tuition by $5.00, from $65 to $60 per month.  This reduction totals $45 annually.  We made this adjustment to allow for up to 3 canceled classes during the dance year for various reasons....weather, teacher illness, etc.
