2)Dancers need to be picked up on time.
3)There will be no guaranteed supervision other than when the dancers are in the classroom with their teachers.
4)All dancers must be potty trained.
5) Sibling are not allowed to wait unsupervised.
6)Parents are responsible for their children’s messes and behavior while in the studio.
7)NO FOOD, DRINK, or GUM.
8)If your dancer will be at the studio for MORE than three hours, they may bring a granola bar or something similar to keep in their bag. NO CHIPS, CANDY, MESSY SNACKS, ETC.
9)All dancers need to bring a reusable water bottle to fill up at water fountain and bring into the class room with them.

ENTRANCE POLICIES

1)Our main entrance will have a key code and all parents will be notified of the code.
2)Only trusted family and friends are allowed to also know this code if they need to drop off or pick up your child from class.
3)You agree to not share this code publicly or with anyone who might be a danger to our students and families or facility.
4)Only during hours of classes will the key code be functional , overnight and off-hours the door will be locked entirely.

TUITION DUE DATES/LATE FEES/ATTENDANCE

1)Dancers are required to have tuition paid every month August-May to keep their place in a class, regardless of their absences.
2)If you know your dancer will be absent ahead of time, you must notify Ms. Sonya
3) After four absences in a row, your child’s spot will be treated as a no-show drop without a 30-day notice and you will be charged the 50$ drop fee per class and their spot may be replaced by someone on the waitlist. As long as you give a 30-day notice (between August and February), you will not be charged a drop fee. From the months of March until recital, if you drop classes (even with a 30-day notice), you will be charged the 50$ per class drop fee as we will be in the middle of preparing for recital and children leaving mid-choreography disrupts the entire class and their routines have to be re-blocked and sometimes re-choreographed which is highly inconvenient and inconsiderate. WE highly discourage dropping classes from January-June since we will be starting recital routines. Dancers need to finish out the season until recital.
4) Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. Any variation on this date will be communicated in advance via website/studio calendar.
5)Tuition can be paid via your parent portal only!
6)Fee for returned payments is $20 per transaction
7)Tuition is considered late on the 6th of the month.
8) A late fee of $30 will be added on the 6th day of the month and the total due will be auto-drafted from the primary card on file on that date. In order to facilitate this, ALL families will be required to sign up for auto-draft on our parent portal.
9)After 30 days unpaid tuition, your dancer will be dropped from their classes with the 50$ per class drop fee and your dancer’s position may be replaced by a child on the waitlist.
10)Costume payments and recital fees are non-refundable, even if dancer is dropped from classes mid-season.

I hereby agree to Allow Esprit Dance Academy LLC to process my debit and/or credit cards as well as bank account for payments. I agree to pay all balances due and pay any payment declined fees. I agree to pay a returned check fee of $20 for each reversed payment.
