Safety and Emergencies:
__I understand that dance and exercise classes involve physical movement and exertion, and represent that the student named on the registration is in good physical health and is capable of performing the dances and exercises required for participation in the classes. I waive all liability against the Minto Dance Academy and its staff for any injury or loss of property sustained while participating in any classes or activities of the school.

__I have provided the necessary contact information to be used in the event of short notice cancellations and I understand that it is my responsibility to notify MDA of any changes to that information, as well as any changes to my email address and phone number.
**Please provide an email address for Intermediate and Senior dancers to be added to distribution of monthly newsletters and notices of class changes & cancellations.
Registration and Fees:
__Registration fees are non-refundable. Once you have registered, you will be expected to pay all tuition fees even if you do not continue to dance. New dancers may be granted a trial period of four (4) weeks, where 50% of fees will be refunded if the student does not continue. No refunds are given to students who withdraw from a class after October 10. A partial refund (50%) will be given when a student withdraws before October 10 and provides the Executive with written notice.
__MDA reserves the right to remove a student from classes if the student is not able to comply with class rules and expectations. Partial refunds may be arranged in these circumstances.
__The studio does not issue refunds or credit to students for missed classes due to illness, vacation, religious observance, or for any other reason.
__If classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, an attempt will be made to move to a virtual class platform (eg. Zoom) or to provide make-up classes.
__If more than 2 classes are cancelled for an extended period of time, due to pandemic or other unforeseen circumstance, MDA will move to a virtual class platform (eg. Zoom).
__Fees must be paid before the dance term begins. A late fee of 5% will be added to unpaid invoices. After 30 days of an unpaid invoice the student will be removed from the class registration.
__Payment of registration fees verifies the acceptance of these conditions of enrollment and the policies of the Minto Dance Academy.
__MDA has operated as a community dance school, run solely by volunteers, for over 40 years. Volunteering is an integral part of keeping our studio fees so affordable, and being able to offer great opportunities to our dancers, and is a requirement of registering as an MDA family.
A $100 Volunteer Deposit is due from each registered family by October 15. Deposits are accepted by any Executive Member. Cash or post-dated cheque (June 1, 2024), are acceptable forms of deposit. Each family is expected to volunteer for each of the Christmas and Sprin Demo. Other volunteer opportunities may also be available throughout the year. Volunteer hours must be completed during the dance season (September - May), if you have completed your volunteer requirements with the studio, your $100 deposit will be returned to you at the end of the season.
__I understand that students are to arrive to class on time, dressed in appropriate dance attire (bodysuit, tights and shoes) with their hair pulled back off their face. Students are to turn off their cell phones during class.
__I understand that in fairness to their classmates, it is important that students attend
classes in order to keep up with lessons and choreography. Too many missed classes will jeopardize a dancer’s opportunity to participate in performances at demonstrations and other activities.
__I agree that all dancers and their parents/guardians should behave in a respectful manner towards the teachers, towards the members of the executive, and towards each other.
Privacy and Social Media:
__I agree to address any concerns or issues regarding my child’s dance classes in writing at email@example.com. I recognize that MDA Executive is responsible for the operations of the studio and I will not engage MDA Staff or others in conversations about my concerns.
__MDA reserves the right to use photos and videos of students from dance classes and performances for advertising and marketing purposes.
__MDA engages in social media for the purpose of studio promotion, team-building, and community involvement.
