TO ORDER ADDITIONAL 2016-17 DANCE YEAR
PICTURES PLEASE GO TO THE PHOTOGRAPHERS
Tuition is always due the first class of the month.
After the 15th you are subject to a late fee.
Someone always ask why do we pay the same
amount each month when we don't always have
the same number of dance classes each month.
This is always explained at the beginning of the
year and in your first newsletter. For those who
did not read the newsletter you received lets
review: You receive a certain number of total
dance classes per dance year. Payment is
broken down into monthly payments due the
first of each month. Holidays and vacation days
are built into the number of classes you attend.
Rehearsals, competition practices and other
events are not charged for. A few parents
actually pay the full amount at the beginning of
the year so they don't have to deal with monthly

|IMPORTANT LITTLE THINGS TO KNOW ..BE INFORMED
It is very important that you attend class each week. Many students are juggling to many
commitments to all kinds of activities. This causes you to be mediocre at everything and
not very good at any one thing. It really slows the class down to have to constantly
re-teach old material due to lack of attendance. BE ON TIME . This is not fair to the
dedicated students who are ready to move on and progress.
Middle school and high school students NEED to make up missed classes. To be in an
advanced class you can only miss three classes. Advanced classes are for serious
students who take dance classes with serious commitment.
STUDENT DRESS CODES FOR CLASSES
In order to make classes more uniform we have some basic attire students need to
follow. Students should wear black leotards, caramel tights, caramel tap shoes and
pink ballet slippers. The last class of each month students can wear colors if they wish.
Small children should have tap shoes with elastic bands instead of laces. Laces
constantly come untied. Students taking hip hop classes only may use dance capri
pants or dance shorts with basic plain tee shirts but students are still are required to
wear tights and leotards with shorts. Dance sneakers work best for hip-hop classes. If
you have any questions about attire just ask your teacher. All attire must be in good
taste or the teacher may ask you leave until the student complies. We do not promote
brands or stores many items can be found locally in the area. One popular store is
Gym,Dance, and Cheer in downtown Hickory on the Square.

We have been having a lot of students and parents walking in and handing cash to the teachers
when arriving or leaving class with NO documentation. You should ALWAYS put these funds in
a sealed payment envelope COMPLETELY filled out. Some will just stick the money in a
payment envelope without filling it out. This is a sure way to not get credit on your account due
to us holding these funds until they get matched up with the correct student ( if they get matched
up at all ). Checks should always have the child's name on it. Many times the writer 's name on a
check do not match the child's last name. Anytime you ask the teacher to fill the envelope out
you are using valuable class time for something you should do. This is not fair to the other
students to have teaching time being used for this purpose. It only takes a minute when you
arrive or leave. (Then you will not be getting those past due notices in the mail.)
