Attendance

Attendance for class is essential for your child’s growth and development as a dancer. In fairness to all students, too many absences may result in your ineligibility to participate in the recital.

Promptness for class is also important. Coming late would distract the class and your child may miss important things, such as warming up for dance.

Make-up Classes

Make-up classes are available for classes missed due to the following reasons:

  1. Student Absence
  2. Snow-cancellation – a message will be left on the answering machine or will be listed on the home page of our website and send out emails to all families.

      Note: Make-up classes must be completed within 30 days

Pick-up

Children should be picked up immediately after class. If a situation occurs, please call the studio. If you are making arrangements for someone else to pick up your child, please inform the studio.

If you are later than 10 minutes after your child’s class ends, you will be assessed a $15 late pick up fee (applies to all Creative Dance and Combo Classes).

Parking

Free parking is available in our lot at the Cleveland Plaza

Dance Recital

We will have a dance recital at the end of our dance term. All students are invited to perform, although it is not mandatory. At Beyond Dance, we want to give our students an opportunity to experience the joys of performing on a stage with an audience. A recital also offers family and friends a chance to see their accomplishments in a relaxing atmosphere.

Costume Deposit

All students wishing to perform in the recital will be required to pay a $75 deposit PER COSTUME. The deposit is due the first week of November, Costume deposits are refundable until November 30th. After November 30th the deposits are non-refundable. Costume will not be ordered without a deposit.

Costume Balance

The remaining balance of all costumes are due the first week of January.

Competition

Competition is for the more serious and dedicated dance student who wants to take dance to another level. Therefore, based on technique, teacher recommendation, classroom ettiquette, attendance and ability to pick up choreography, students are invited to be part of the Competition Team.

Parents will be expected to help competition students. Please be aware that extra shoes and accessories may have to be purchased and costumes may cost more as a result.

Competition can be a positive experience. It is an outlet for dancers to perform in front of other dancers and an opportunity to receive feedback from industry professionals.
