A HUGE STEP IN THE LEARNING PROCESS OF CLASSICAL BALLET FOR GIRLS IS THAT FIRST POINTE CLASS! IT TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT AND CONCENTRATION:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: DO WE HAVE TO SIGN A 12 MONTH CONTRACT? ARE WE FORBIDDEN FROM TAKING CLASSES ELSEWHERE TOO?

A: NO - WHILE MANY COMBO-CLASS AND COMPETITION DANCE STUDIOS HAVE ADOPTED THE MEASURES OF A FULL YEAR MANDATORY CONTRACT AND EVEN PROHIBITING THE STUDY OF DANCE AT ANY OTHER STUDIO, WE DO NOT AND WILL NOT OPERATE IN THIS MANNER.  FOR AGES 3 THRU 5, THE ONLY RESTRICTION IS OUR 7 DAY ADVANCE NOTICE FOR ANY CLASS WITHDRAWAL.  FOR AGES 6 AND UP, WE DO REQUIRE 3 MONTHS OF ATTENDANCE BEFORE ANY WITHDRAWAL CAN BE MADE, AND THIS IS REALLY MORE FOR AVOIDING SUDDEN STARTS AND STOPS BY CHILDREN WHO OFTEN TIMES NEED A CONSISTENT PERIOD OF TIME TO GET USED TO ANY NEW ACTIVITY AND MAKE IT A PART OF THEIR REGIMEN.  FOR MORE ADVANCED STUDENTS, WE DO REQUIRE A MINIMUM NUMBER OF TECHNIQUE CLASSES TO GO ALONG WITH STUDYING POINTE OR VARIATIONS BECAUSE THESE THINGS MUST BE STUDIED CORRECTLY TO BE ABLE TO DO THEM WITH THE CORRECT FORM AND FLOW, AND TO DO THEM WITH MINIMAL TO NO RISK OF INJURY.  WE DO FOCUS ON CLASSICAL BALLET BECAUSE IT IS A COMPLETE MOVEMENT LANGUAGE, BALLET OFFERS UNIVERSITY VERIFIED, DOCUMENTED IMPROVEMENTS TO THE POSTURE, MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT AND MENTAL ACUITY OF CHILDREN, AND IT CANNOT BE LEARNED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER DANCE FORMS IN A COMBO-CLASS TYPE FORMAT.  OFFERING BALLET ALONG WITH COMPETITION DANCE, JAZZ AND HIP HOP IS SIMPLY NOT HOW CLASSICAL DANCE TRAINING WORKS.  

Q: IF WE GO OUT OF TOWN OR HAVE THE FLU CAN WE MAKE UP THE CLASSES THAT WE MISSED?

A: ABSOLUTELY.  AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE WE OFFER EACH PRE BALLET CLASS OR AN EQUIVALENT WITH WEEKEND AND WEEKNIGHT TIMES; SHOULD CLASS BE MISSED DUE TO A VACATION OR ILLNESS TAKING THE OTHER EQUIVALENT CLASS ALONG WITH YOUR NORMAL CLASS TIME TO MAKE UP IS DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!  THE ONLY EXCLUSION IS FROM FEBRUARY THOUGH JUNE AS CLASSES PREPARE THEIR RESPECTIVE CHOREOGRAPHY, DURING THAT 4 MONTH TIME FRAME MAKE UPS ARE NOT AVAILABLE.

Q: DO WE GET A DISCOUNT OR CREDIT FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER OR JUNE SINCE THEY'RE SHORT?

A: IN ORDER TO SUSTAINABLY CONTINUE OUR BALLET EDUCATION EFFORTS, TUITION IS RUN AT A FLAT MONTHLY RATE YEAR ROUND INCLUDING THE SHORT MONTHS OF DECEMBER AND JUNE WITH NO UP OR DOWN CHARGES OR CHANGES FOR VACATIONS, ANY ABSENCES, BAD WEATHER CANCELLATIONS, OR SCHEDULED DAYS OFF FOR HOLIDAYS.  

Q: CAN WE CANCEL OUR TUITION PAYMENT WITH NO ADVANCED NOTICE?

A: WE DO NOT REQUIRE MINIMUM ENROLLMENT TIMES OR HAVE EARLY CANCELLATION FEES, HOWEVER WE DO REQUIRE A 7 DAY ADVANCE NOTICE BEFORE THE NEXT MONTH IF YOU DECIDE TO HALT TAKING CLASS.  FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU WISH TO HALT TAKING CLASS FOR OCTOBER, WE NEED TO BE NOTIFIED NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 24; WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE AFTER THE FACT REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR THE CURRENT MONTH SHOULD LESSONS BE DISCONTINUED AFTER TUITION HAS BEEN SUBMITTED OR FOR ANY NOTICE GIVEN LESS THAN 7 DAYS IN ADVANCE.  

Q: WE JUST GOT A JOB TRANSFER, CAN WE GET A REFUND FOR OUR COSTUME PURCHASE?

A: THIS IS AN ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT SITUATION WHICH DOES HAPPEN FROM TIME TO TIME; WE APOLOGIZE THAT COSTUME PURCHASES CANNOT BE REFUNDED ONCE MADE.  WE DO HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRYING TO ASCERTAIN IF POSSIBLE THAT NO TRANSFERS OF EMPLOYMENT WILL OCCUR IN THE 6 MONTHS BETWEEN JANUARY AND JUNE OF THE YEAR WHEN COSTUMES ARE ORDERED.
