Guidelines and Policies
WAITING AREA/DRESSING ROOMS
Parents are invited to wait for their children on the 3rd and 4th floor landings. You are not required to wait for your children during class time, but if you choose to, bring a good book and make our home your home. If you have other children waiting with you, please, be sure you are supervising them. On most occasions the doors to the studios will be open during class times. We ask that conversation be kept quiet in these areas.
Students should be picked up in a timely manner.
The Girls dressing room is located at the end of the hallway on the 3rd floor. The Boys dressing room is located on the 4th floor. We ask that Dads please not enter the Girls dressing room. Someone will be available to help your daughters change if necessary.
TUITION PAYMENT POLICY
Tuition may be paid for in two ways. A full year payment, with which you will receive a 5% discount or in 3 payments throughout the year. Payment dates are listed on our class information sheet. Signs will be posted on the 3rd floor bulletin board to remind parents when payments are due.
*Any family that may have difficulty with these payment options should contact us.
Class cards are available for Adult classes only and may be used at anytime throughout the year. Single class payments apply only for drop in classes. Drop in classes are for out of town visitors, college students or adults.
Boys ages 9 to young adult may be invited to participate in any classes at no cost. This does not apply to master classes, workshops, summer classes or pre-season classes.
MAKE UP CLASS POLICY
If a student knows ahead of time that she/he will be missing a class please inform the teacher or call the studio to let them know.
Missed classes may be made up in a reasonable amount of time with a class of similar aged students and ability. Teachers will guide students to the appropriate class or you may call the office.
No refunds will be given because of a students’ personal schedule. In the event of a prolonged illness or injury that prohibits dancing a doctor’s statement should be presented to secure a partial refund. There are no refunds on class cards.
In case of inclement weather:
The Studio phone message (990-3140) will be changed to reflect any change in class schedules due to weather.
Notification of class cancellations will be sent to WLBZ channel 2 and the website of WABI channel 5.

The date for our Studio Show is June 4, 2016. The Studio Show takes the place of a full blown recital. It is an opportunity for our students to learn a piece of choreography to be performed for friends and family. Costumes, for the most part, will be provided by School of Robinson Ballet and the Robinson Ballet. All students are invited to participate in the show. Preparations begin in full about a month or so before the show. We ask that all students who decide to participate make a commitment to attend all those classes. If any student consistently misses these classes without an appropriate excuse or because of their personal schedule we reserve the right to remove them from the show.
The Studio Show is held at the Union St. Brick Church. Admission – $5.00 (Free for children 5 & under)
