Withdrawal and Refunds: We require 30-days notice to discontinue any classes. Withdrawals must be done in person and will not be accepted over the phone or email. Withdrawals must be done at the reception desk NOT with a teacher. To withdraw from a class you must:
- Complete and sign a JDS withdrawal form provided by the school office. We cannot accept a withdrawal form if there is a balance due.
All automatic payments will stop after the one-month notice period. Non-Attendance does NOT constitute withdraw notice or adequate reason for not paying tuition. Once classes begin, tuition is non-refundable or transferable and credits are not issued. We reserve the right to terminate lessons to any student. In such a case, refunds are at the director’s discretion.
Parent’s Responsibility to be Aware of Dates and Events: It is the responsibility of the parent or adult student to be aware of all school activities, such as viewing days, recitals, extra classes, and dates the school is open or closed. The parents will give the school their email address to email all such notices home. The school will also post all notices on the bulletin board. It is the parent’s responsibility to regularly check their email and these boards to ensure they are informed. It is the responsibility of the parents or adult students to inform the school of any email, address or phone number change.
Make up Classes: If a dancer is absent he/she may make up a class on another day with office approval. There are no tuition adjustments for absences. Holidays do not have makeup classes as the price is adjusted for.
Observation: Parents are always welcome to watch class through our viewing windows. Please refrain from distracting your child. At no time is a parent allowed to interrupt a class. Should you need to leave class early, make arrangements with the instructor ahead of time or ask the receptionist to remove your child from the studio. There are three observation days throughout the year when parents are invited into the studio to watch. Please make sure that all small children are not disruptive. Please save conversations for outside of the studio, so that class operates smoothly. Feel free to take photos and videos of your dancer; however, please remain in your seat so the class is not disrupted. Please silence your cellular phone.
Behavior and Discipline: JDS students are expected to be on their best behavior at all times. Dancers are to be respectful and courteous to all staff and peers.
Students Before and After Class: The studio and faculty are not responsible for the care of your child before or after class starts/ends. If your child is dropped off please be prompt for pick up. Older kids may arrive early to stretch and prepare for class. Please note that your child will not be directly supervised if you choose to drop off it as at your own risk.
Injuries: Parents, legal guardians of minor students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on studio property or off-site location resulting from normal dance, cheer, tumbling, fitness, and any other activity conducted by the students before, during or after class time and performances.
