The policies of The Dance Corner are in place to ensure your child remains safe and focused on class, as well as to give our teachers the ability to observe proper techniques.
Pre-school parents must be waiting in the studio for their children at the scheduled end of class. We do not allow pre-school students to leave the studio until a parent arrives.
Waiting in automobiles curb-side is prohibited by West Windsor township law. We expect parents to comply with the law and park in designated parking spots only.
- No food or gum is permitted anywhere in the studio.
- The required attire for each class will be found with the class description.
- Jewelry, skirts, and tutus are prohibited in all classes.
Attendance - Make Up Policy
Our school operates on a 39 week schedule. The Winter Break is not part of the 39 weeks. The other scheduled closures (listed on the schedule in the beginning of the season) are part of the 39 weeks and they can be made up at any time in the 39 week period. Make ups can actually even be made in advance of the absence. Make ups can also be done in the event of a snow day. We also ask our clients that have classes scheduled during our dress rehearsal and dance recital to make up those classes in advance if they wish. There is no need to tell the studio in advance that your child is going to do a make up class. A make up form should be filled out with the date of the class that is being made up. These forms are located inside each dance studio. Please ask the teacher at the beginning of class for a form. Make ups cannot be used to join a class and be part of that particular recital dance. Make ups must be done during the academic year and do not carry over to the next session.
In the event that a child has an injury or an extensive illness, The Dance Corner will issue a credit for classes missed as long as a doctor's note is provided. This credit will be put on a family's account and can be used for upcoming tuition charges only. This credit is good for one year from the day it is issued. Credit will not be issued in the event that a child has a doctor's note and takes team classes because they are required to observe those classes.
Social Media Policy
Dancers are expected to respect each other's privacy. Some dancers, teachers, and parents may not want their pictures posted online on any web-sites. The Dance Corner expects its dancers, teachers, and parents to obtain permission before doing so.
A message will be left on the school answering machine when classes are to be cancelled. You may also check our announcements page.
Payment for classes, costumes, tickets, or DVDs may be made by cash or check only.
