Student Expectations

Respectful behavior is expected from all our students. This includes positive language used towards Instructors and fellow classmates, listening and trying your best.

Instructors will be in touch with parents if we need to work together to find a solution to change behavior so that children are given the right tools and support they need for success!

Positive, respectful behavior helps build a class atmosphere dedicated to fun, growth and growth and confidence for the kids as well as a positive feeling of belonging to the Group.

 

Registration Fee Per Family

Registration Fees are required once/year ($26.25/Family inc. GST).

This fee is used for administration fees of running the studio throughout the year as well as preparing for and administrating Registration.

 

Dance Costumes For Recital

A Dance Recital Costume will be ordered for every student! Costumes will range between $65-$80 total with a $40 deposit required at Registration. The remainder of the fee will be Invoiced once the costumes have been ordered and fees are known. Parents will be responsible for measurements when requested and any additional alteration fees that may be required.

 

NSF Payments

An NSF Fee of $30 will be charged on any returned cheque. If payments are not received within 7 days of NSF Notification, 2% Interest on the Monthly fee will be added per day overdue. We appreciate your prompt payment!

 

Class withdrawal

If a parent and child decide a class is not the right fit, one month written notice is required to withdraw from the class.  Any attendance during a month will constitute a full month.

 

Water bottles and bathroom breaks

Please bring a water bottle for your child. Please encourage your small children to go to the bathroom prior to the class.  Especially for our younger little ones, there will be one Class water or bathroom break.

 

Attendance

While it is understood dancers may have to miss a couple of classes throughout the year, especially if they are sick, families are encouraged to attend as many classes throughout the year as possible.  Not only will regular attendance benefit your child’s learning and confidence, it will benefit the entire class, especially as we move into classes after Christmas in preparation for our Year-end Show. If your dancer has to miss more then 1 class throughout the year, please email thejoyousdance@gmail.com to give a heads up.  Angela will pass the information on to the appropriate Teacher.
