If the afternoon becomes much more clement, we may still offer classes in the afternoon and evening. This will be communicated by email. Refunds are not offered for any class that is canceled due to weather.
Refund Policy: In the event that a student drops after the first of the month, that month's tuition will not be refunded. If semester/year tuition was paid in full, the subsequent months' tuition will be refunded.
Parents/Guardians: Parents/guardians and/or other family members are welcome to hang out in the lobby/waiting room area while their child(ren) are in class, but are not required to stay on campus the whole time. There will always be an adult supervisor and/or an adult instructor on campus. However, students should be picked up promptly at the end of class. Food is allowed in the lobby area, but we ask that you clean up after yourself and/or your children.
Dancers: Before class or rehearsal, dancers should have gone to the bathroom, have the appropriate dance attire on, and have their hair up and out of their face. Before class, dancers should remain with their parents in the waiting room or may wait/begin warming up quietly in order to respect the other classes that may still be in session. Each dancer is encouraged to bring a water bottle to class, but please refrain from bringing any food or other drink into the classroom.
Code of Conduct: At Reverence Dance Academy we strive to follow the Golden Rule as described in Luke 6:31 "Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you." This includes being respectful towards instructors, parents and other students. Avoiding unwholesome talk but instead speaking to one another with kindness, love and encouragement in order to build each other up. And coming to class with a positive attitude and ready to learn.
