We do not close the studio for teacher workdays as scheduled by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
All classes start and end at the published class times. However, teachers may take a few minutes at either the beginning or end of class to take care of administrative duties such as taking roll, addressing parent questions, making announcements, etc.
Tuition for lessons is an annual fee, which can be paid as:
Monthly payments: by check, credit card or draft, due on the 1st of each month September through May.
Quarterly (three month’s tuition) due on September 1, December 1, and March 1.
Late Fee: Tuition is due on the 1st of the month. A $15 late fee will be added if not received by the 15th.
We offer the convenience of paying your tuition with your Visa, MasterCard, check, or automatic draft. If you choose the automatic draft, please send us a voided check and we will draft your account the 1st of each month.The annual fee is based on the length of the weekly class(es). A technique class such as ballet, jazz, or tap taken as a second class has a reduced rate. If you withdraw from a class or make a change in classes, please notify us in writing by using a drop/add card available in the studio lobby. Missed classes may be made up. Please check with your instructor for an appropriate class to attend for a make-up.

We welcome parent observation anytime. You will find viewing windows outside of each dance room. For the benefit of student concentration and the protection of our professional dance floors, we ask that observation be done from the viewing windows. We will have a special Parent Observation Week during the week of February 13th, 2012. You are invited into the classrooms that week to see what we have been doing and to preview the spring concert dances.
Dancers may wear any color or style of leotard and tights to most classes. Laces and/or ribbons should be tucked into the ballet slippers. Do not wear dangling earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. into class. Hair should be neat, away from your face, and up off of your neck (this allows for free movement and allows the instructors to better see a dancer's alignment). Older students should wear a cover-up when arriving/departing the studio.
