Attendance

It is important that students are attending their weekly lessons and arriving on time and ready for class. Attending classes regularly increases the dancer’s technique, strength, and builds their confidence in their dance education. Missed classes will not be refunded and students are responsible for the entire tuition amount.  Dancers can attend an equivalent style and leveled class within one week of missing their lesson. Families need to notify the front desk/send email to the instructor of the class they plan on attending for make up.

For the safety of our dancers Studio 360 School of Dance offers the state of the art student attendance system. New students will be issued scan cards upon arrival to their first lesson. Dancers will scan their cards upon entering each class. This ensures the safety of the dancer as well as helps with attendance records! Parents may view their dancers record via our online portal.

Inclement Weather

In the event of a class cancellation due to inclement weather students have the option to make-up their lesson in an equivalent level on a different day within one week of the canceled lesson. Please notify the front desk if you are going to be attended a class for make up.  Refunds will not be issued for cancelled lessons. Studio 360 School of Dance will generally follow the College Community School District, however as conditions change throughout the day we may still hold classes. You will be notified via Facebook, KCRG, and email.

Cancellation

Studio 360 School of dance reserves the right to cancel classes that have fewer than five dancers registered. Tuition will be refunded or the dancer can choose an alternate class. Classes that fall over a holiday will not be refunded.

If a dancer drops from a technique only class: leaps/turns, strength & conditioning, or floor barre they will be charged a $50.00 drop fee.

In the unfortunate event that a student withdraws from a class, Studio 360 School of Dance must be notified in writing that the dancer will no longer be enrolled in class. The dancer will be charged and remain enrolled in the class until notification is received. After written notification is received billing for the class will end at the first of the following month. Tuition is not refunded hence if students have prepaid tuition their remaining balance will remain as a credit on their account.
