Effective July 1, 2021, all tuition must be set up for Auto Pay with a credit card. Your credit card will be charged on or about the 1st day of each month. Should your card be declined for any reason, you must pay by 7th day of the month to avoid a 25% late fee and provide us with your new credit card information by the 7th day of the month in which it was declined. NO statements will be sent to you unless your tuition is late.
If you are dropping any classes, you must notify us via e-mail at CharadeDanceAcademy@gmail.com by the 20th day of the month preceding the month you would like to drop, or you will be responsible for paying your tuition for the following month.
If you are dropping all classes, you must notify us via e-mail at CharadeDanceAcademy@gmail.com by the 20th day of the month preceding the month you would like to drop, so we can deactivate your recurring charge.
Please relax in our Reception room and please refrain from crowding the doorways when classes are in session. Parents are not allowed on the dance floor during class time (unless the parent is assisting their child in the Pre Ballet I classes). Staff and teaching assistants will be the only teachers in the dance marked area.
Entering dance area:
Dancers will go into the dance area and place their bag and water bottle in the cubbie; dancers will be spaced out so that the dancers are at a safe distance apart from each other. They will stay in their own designated space until all the dancers have arrived. Class sizes are limited, giving dancers more than enough safe space away from each other in class.
Proper handwashing is absolutely essential.
At the end of class:
Parents must pick up dancers at the end of class time.
If a dancer looks sick, we will send them home. We know the no contact thermometers aren’t always 100% accurate and that some cases are asymptomatic so any dancers who are exhibiting any signs of sickness will be sent home to rest. Please do not send your dancer to class if they do not feel well. We will keep the sick dancer away from everyone until a parent is able to pick them up. Remember if your child has had symptoms or a fever, they cannot come to class until they are symptom free for 48 hours.
If you have come into contact with someone with COVID-19 or have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive, you must not come to class for 2 weeks after you had contact with the infected individual. You must provide a hard copy of the negative test result. This rule is absolute. If anyone tests positive for COVID-19 and has been to in-person class: We will immediately contact those who were in the space that day. All those who came into contact with the individual will self quarantine for 2 weeks. Your dancer will not be allowed to take dance class until the waiver is signed and received.
At the end of the day we will clean every single surface, and disinfect all equipment and dance props…
Thank you for your understanding and support during this uncertain time.
If you are absent from a class, you may request a courtesy make-up in a comparable class at least 2 days BEFORE your absence. All make-ups must be requested via e-mail at email@example.com and confirmed no later than 24 hours before your make-up. We will send a confirmation email once the make-up has been made.
A make-up must be taken no later than one month from the date of the absence, and the student must be currently registered in a class. There will be no rescheduling make-ups if a make-up appointment is missed. Once you drop all classes, all make-ups are forfeited. Make-ups are non-transferrable for credit.
Not all classes will be open for make-ups. We have the right to refuse any request for a make-up, should the class size be too large on the day of or if the level/age is not appropriate for the student. We cannot guarantee a make-up will be available for a given student's schedule, age or skill level. Therefore, we highly encourage our students to plan accordingly and strive to attend each class session for which they are registered.
We will allow up to 6 last-minute or unexcused absences a year. Absences that are not requested before the given timeline will be marked as unexcused. If there is an event where these absences exceed the amount stated, there will be no make-up granted for other unexcused dates. There will be set reminders and emails sent out for each unexcused absence for both students and staff to keep check.
