I understand that I must be over 18 to register for an account, that I am registering myself or my child for dance classes at Breakout Dance Studio and have read over accept the Policies and Procedures at Breakout Dance Studio.
If you register for and take a space in a class, you are committed to, and agree to pay tuition for that class until the end of the semester.
Registration Fees: Each student will be charged a non-refundable annual registration fee payable in September, or upon registration.
Tuition: Tuition is due before attending the first class for the semester that students are enrolled in and tuition is non-refundable regardless if a student continues to attend class. We accept cash, checks, credit cards and are setup through the local homeschool programs as a vendor for class reimbursements. Please let us know if you need a receipt for tuition payments. There will be a $35 charge for all returned checks.
Charge Accounts: Dancers over the age of 10 are allowed to “charge” drinks and snacks on their parent’s Breakout Dance Studio account unless the parent denies the privilege. If you do not want your dancer to be able to charge drinks or snacks, please let the front desk know. Parents are responsible for all charges on their accounts.
Recital Fees: Recital Performance Fees and costume charges, if the student is participating, will be due by a particular deadline. The deadline will be posted IN ADVANCE at the studio and in the Parent Portal. It is the parents/guardians responsibility to keep informed on these and other due dates.
Other Fee Policies: All fees (tuition, registration fees, recital performance fees, costume fees, and tickets) are non-refundable. All outstanding balances must be paid in full before costumes are handed out and before any student can perform in the Recital. All accounts must be paid in full before registering for the next session. Accounts with a history of non-payment or non-compliance with studio policies may be barred from registration and may be asked to leave the studio or may be asked to prepay tuition.
Attendance: If your child will not be attending classes, please visit your Parent Portal and submit their absence and or any future absences by clicking on the Attendance icon. Students that miss more than 4 classes in one semester will not be allowed to participate in the spring recital or performance at the end of the year.
No Dancer will be admitted to class if they arrive 10 or more minutes after the class start time. If your child is more than 10 minutes late to class, you will need to do a make up for that class during the same calendar month.
Make Up Policy: Any missed classes may be made up by attending a class of the same level or lower and only within the same calendar month. If the dancer misses classes in the last week of a calendar month, the dancer may make up the class in the following calendar month. No credits or refunds are given for missed classes. Breakout Dance Studio is not responsible for tracking missed classes. Students may not make up more than twice in the exact same class. To make up a class, get a make up slip from the front desk before class. There are no makeups for classes missed because of holidays or for classes missed in a past calendar month. Make ups cannot be done by siblings or friends. Make up classes cannot be done after the start of Costume Week.
There are no street shoes allowed in the studio! Students who walk into the studio lobby from outside in their hip hop class sneakers or dance shoes, will not be allowed in class. All dance shoes must be carried in to the studio lobby area and changed into before class starts.
Dress Code: We have a copy of our dress code doc for all classes at the studio uploaded in the BAND, in our Parent Portal and in the purple binders at the studio. Children that come to class unprepared without proper dance shoes or dance attire will not be allowed to attend class.
If you have little ones, please assist them in putting on their dance shoes prior to the start of class. Instructors are not responsible for ensuring students have their shoes on and ready to go before class starts.
We do have lockers for students that are enrolled in two or more dance classes that students may leave their dance shoes or dance wear in. Students must have a lock on their lockers.
There are no cell phones, tablets, smart watches, computers, laptops, gaming systems etc. allowed in the studio. Students must silence all electronic devices before class and are not allowed use of their electronics until class has ended. Any students not abiding by the electronics policy will have electronics confiscated until class ends. If students absolutely need to contact a parent, they may approach the teacher with their request and the teacher will contact their parents if absolutely necessary.
Parents, friends and younger siblings are NOT allowed in classrooms during class; it helps students keep focused without distraction. The studio's large waiting area accommodates parents & siblings who would like to view their children’s classes. When the studio door is closed, please do not open the door and interrupt class while in progress.
If your child has a behavioral issue or special need, please advise the front desk. If your child has an injury or illness that a physician has suggested he or she be limited from physical activity, you must provide a doctor’s note to hold a space in class AND your child must be cleared by the same physician in writing to return to dance. If your child has a cast, crutches, brace, etc., your child will not be allowed to participate in dance without written clearance from a physician. No refunds or credits will be given for injuries after the child is authorized to return to class.
If your child is in a full class and your child has not attended the class for 3 consecutive weeks without a parent request and payment to maintain his or her space, your child may be dropped from a class to allow others to participate without a refund or credit for tuition paid or owed.
All parents and students are expected to read and comply with all studio policies, procedures, dress code and recital requirements (available in the BAND and in the Parent Portal).
Student / Instructor Interaction: Breakout Dance Studio instructors have a hands on approach to correcting students to ensure proper body alignment and technique.
Copyright Policy: Breakout Dance Studio reserves the right to photograph, video tape or record student’s dance training, instruction and performances for use for instruction, promotion, publicity and broadcast uses. All ownership, rights, title and interest in and to these recordings, including copyright, belong exclusively to Breakout Dance Studio.
Lobby / Waiting Area: Please be respectful of the furniture and items in the lobby / waiting area. If you bring in food, please eat at the tables and clean up after yourself and do not eat at the couches. The corner desk area is off limits to students and families and is strictly for Breakout Dance Studio staff only. All children not attending classes are to be accompanied by a parent at all times while in the lobby. Parents are responsible for ensuring their children are quiet and respectful of the furniture and toys, books, etc. provided in the lobby. Families with children climbing on the furniture, tampering with fixtures or being disruptive, will not be asked to leave the studio during class time. Please clean up after your children when they are done using the art table, books, toys etc. before you leave the studio. The lobby area, tables and chairs, wifi, etc. is to be used only while students are attending class and 15 minutes prior to and after classes. Please do not come to the studio to use the internet or waiting area for personal needs outside of classes your child is enrolled in. We like to keep the waiting area unclogged and available for the next group of students and families attending classes.
You are welcome to use our wifi if absolutely necessary, but we would like to limit the use of our wifi as that is our source for communicating with CLI Studios, playing music and accessing videos and we need to keep the wifi usage to a minimum so as not to slow down our internet connection.
Communication: We have several methods for communicating with our student’s families. Instructors have limited time for discussion between classes as we have a very tight schedule and need to ensure classes start on time. If you have a question or concern, please contact Jamie Straatsma via email to email@example.com or through the BAND app via private chat. Please do not text message the studio’s cell phone regularly as it can be very chaotic, overwhelming and consume a lot of the studio owner’s time.
Our studio’s BAND is accessed via an app that is private, secure and only for those enrolled at Breakout Dance Studio. Please visit your app store and download the BAND app or you may access the BAND through a web browser on your computer at www.BAND.com. You will be asked to create a profile. Please use your full name so we know who is requesting to join our BAND and ensure they are enrolled at Breakout Dance Studio. If you do not use your full name (First and Last), you will not be approved to join the BAND. If you have a child that is a student and would like to join, rest assured, no one will see their profile outside of fellow students enrolled at the studio and their parents/guardians. Our BAND is where you will find a calendar with all class schedules, performances, rehearsals, events and locations, maps etc. to all events related to the studio. It is also a place where we can share photos and videos of our classes, rehearsals and performances securely and privately amongst one another, chat in groups pertaining to the classes students are enrolled in, receive reminders of upcoming themed classes and so much more!
