Class Cancellations, Substitutions, & Makeup Policy

Weather Cancellations: If the studio must cancel classes due to weather or events beyond our control such as power outages, students may take another scheduled class appropriate for their age and experience level. No refunds for lessons missed due to these reasons will be given. If Greenland Central School closes due to snow, daytime classes (classes held before 3pm) are automatically cancelled. However, this does NOT mean that afternoon classes will be cancelled. The decision will be made by 2pm.You may check our News and NoticesFacebook page, or you may call the studio ONE HOUR prior to your scheduled class to check the voicemail message. *Saturday class decisions will be made by 8:00am.

Substitutions: The studio reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regularly scheduled teacher is ill or otherwise unable to teach classes. If a teacher is ill and the studio cannot arrange a substitute, students may take another scheduled class appropriate for their age and experience level.

Makeup Classes: Students who miss a class will have the opportunity to make it up with another similar class appropriate for his/her age and ability level.

Sorry, no make-ups are possible for Summer Camps/Classes.

Class Attendance and Lateness

The studio reserves the right to have students who come late to class, sit out the class. Repeated lateness may result in termination of lessons. A minimum attendance level will be required. If a student misses more than 4 classes without written notices, the studio reserves the right to terminate lessons. Students missing more than 4 classes after January will not be allowed to participate in the year-end dance recital, festivals, or competitions. Dance Team members may not miss more than 3 classes. Dancers with perfect attendance – zero absences – will receive a Perfect Attendance Award at the recital.

Parent/Guardian’s Responsibility to be Aware of Dates and Events

Please read all newsletters and other school information posted in the Customer Portal, the Dance Innovations Dance Center website www.DanceInnovationsNH.com, and the studio’s Facebook page which are all available 24 hours a day.

It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian or the adult student to be aware of all studio activities such as picture days, recitals, extra classes, and dates the studio is open or closed. The studio will not only post all such notices on the website and on the bulletin boards, but will also email seasonal newsletters as well (be sure to check that DIDC is on your list of Safe Senders so important studio information doesn’t get sent to spam folders). It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to regularly check postings to ensure they are informed, and likewise, to inform the studio of any address, email, or telephone number changes.

Students

The studio is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. No children under the age of 14 are to be left unsupervised on the premises when not in class.

Dress Code

Dance Innovations Dance Center maintains a dress code in order for the teachers to assess how well the students are implementing the technique being taught, problems with alignment, and other important aspects of dance training. Required dancewear and dance shoes must be worn to all classes. Failure to wear required dancewear to class could result in students being asked to sit out the class. Repeated failure to wear required dancewear could result in termination of lessons. NO JEANS OR DRESSES IN ANY CLASS!

Students must carry dance shoes to and from class; wearing dance shoes outside is not good for the shoes or the studio floor. Please check tap shoes for loose screws. Please WRITE YOUR NAME IN ALL YOUR DANCE SHOES. There is a used-shoe exchange bin in the studio – please feel free to take or leave a pair.
