Northeastern Ballet Theatre recognizes that every child has the right to enjoy a life free from bullying; therefore we will always take seriously all allegations of bullying and are committed to deal with it effectively, should it happen. We will always endeavor to work with students and parents to prevent it from happening.
We at Northeastern Ballet Theatre strive to create an environment that fosters positive learning and development of our dancers. Drama has no place in our school nor performance company. We have a zero drama policy and address all matters as they arise, including dismissal of anyone who creates unnecessary tension between students, parents, etc. Each dancer is on their own individual journey and competes against no one. Our focus is learning through loving, so please keep this in mind when participating.
We expect students to attend all classes. Excessive absences could lead to students not advancing to the next level. If dancers miss rehearsals, they could also be removed from sections of their piece. We understand illness happens, so we encourage using Zoom, even if only to observe classes/rehearsals, when an absence may typically occur. To notify the school of a student absence or need for Zoom, please use the parent portal or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
During sessions, students are expected to behave in a polite manner. They are expected to listen and we discourage unnecessary talking. If a student is causing disruption to others’ learning, they may be asked to leave the lesson.
Any unacceptable behavior from students and/or parents/carers will not be accepted. Unacceptable behavior by students may result in exclusion from current and/or future activities. Parents or family members are held to this same behavior policy and may be banned from premises, events and/or performances for failure to follow proper conduct.
We make every effort possible not to cancel classes. In the event an in-person class cannot be held, classes will be moved to Zoom. If a cancellation must occur due to instructor illness, the class will be made up. On rare occasions, and if a make-up is deemed impossible, tuition credit may be given at the discretion of the administration. If you do not come to the scheduled make-up, please speak to your instructor about another appropriate make-up class. Tuition credit is not given when a make-up class is offered and not attended.
We believe in offering the very best ballet education. We strive to keep our class sizes to fewer than 15 dancers per class. In the event additional space is needed due to demand, an additional class of the same level will be added based on instructor/studio availability.

Furthermore, I agree to checking e-mail and text messages frequently so that I may see any updates and read them thoroughly.

Ballet dress codes are necessary to ensure the safety, technique evaluation and uniformity of dancers. Students are responsible for coming to class prepared with appropriate dress at all times. If a student comes without following the dress code, the instructor may ask them to leave.
- Hair must be worn in a traditional ballet bun at the crown of the head. No bangs allowed. If a female student has short hair all hair including bangs must be clipped back and gelled away from the face. The goal is to have the hair off the neck and face to create an elegant line in a style that cannot move around.
- An exception for Beginnings Ballet dancers: may wear their hair in a traditional ballet bun or in a neat high ponytail with any bangs clipped off the face.
- Ballet tights and leotards must be free of holes.
- Fashion accessories of any kind, including headbands and bandanas, are not allowed.
- NO jewelry (except small stud earrings). Dangling earrings and hoops are strictly prohibited due to safety reasons. NO hair ties or rubber bands are allowed on wrists. NO watches/bracelets, necklaces, or rings.
- As applicable by age, female dancers should wear appropriate support undergarment under leotard. Please wear skin tone or leotard color undergarments, if you must wear undergarments under tights, to ensure they are not visible.
- Pointe shoes for beginner pointe dancers should NOT be purchased until they are given guidelines by the teacher. Elastics and ribbons must be properly sewn to the pointe shoes once they are approved by the teacher. A tutorial on how to properly sew pointe shoes will be given by NBT staff as needed.
Out of respect to all, proper personal hygiene (body and clothing) must be observed.
Warm-up clothing will be allowed in class at the teacher's discretion during cold weather. Only tight-fitting "dance" sweaters and leg warmers are allowed. No loose or baggy clothes (including T-shirts) are permitted under any circumstances. No sweatshirts with hoods. No street clothes are allowed.
For the safety of all dancers, if eyeglasses are needed, please attach them with a sports strap around the bun. Contacts are highly recommended for more advanced dancers instead of eyeglasses.
All students must furnish their own clothing and shoes for classes and performances.

I hereby give permission for Northeastern Ballet Theatre personnel to give myself or my minor child simple first aid when necessary. In the event of a more serious accident/injury, I give permission for myself or my child to be transported to a hospital or other emergency medical facility to receive medical treatment. I also authorize the hospital to undertake examination and emergency treatment if warranted on behalf of myself or my child.
I acknowledge that I or my child may be photographed/filmed by Northeastern Ballet Theatre or a hired representative during class or performances. I understand that in some cases, my child and/or my name may be used. I further understand no financial compensation will be offered for use of these photos/videos.
WITHDRAWAL(S):The studio requires 1 month's notice for withdrawal from classes. If you wish to withdraw your student(s), we will need to have it in a form of writing via email or handwritten note stating that you wish to withdraw your child. If we do not receive it in a form of writing we will continue to run your EFT, send invoices, etc. We will stop the running of EFTs and invoices once we have received your withdrawal in writing. If you drop classes, your registration fee and reservation for class is forfeited and you will have to re-register when registration is OPEN ($45.00). Only exception is illness or injury from the time you were absent with a Doctor’s excuse. Doctor’s excuse must be properly dated from the date of illness or injury and throughout the healing process to receive entry back into class.
REFUND(S) :. NO REFUNDS or EXCHANGES on any payments made to the studio including full year payments! This includes any CREDIT left in your account. There is also NO TRANSFERRING of credit to another account of any kind
Once a payment for anything has been made to the studio, it is non-refundable and it will not be credited for any reason no matter when the order is due or is placed. This includes but is not limited to registration fees, tuition, shoes, costumes, logo wear, accessories, workshops, dance camps etc.
There will be no refunds made if your child misses a class; however they may make up the class (staff or your child's teacher will assist in scheduling). If we cancel a class due to teacher illness, we will arrange a make-up time. All make-up classes must be taken no later than May 1st. There are 3 weather/emergency closings built into the dance year. After the 3rd emergency closing we will schedule a make up class for the entire class.
In the event of an extended closure, we will make the automatic switch to virtual classes. There will be no discount or refund for these classes. In order to stay an active student, you must participate in virtual lessons and keep your tuition up to date.
CONFERENCES: If at any time you have questions or wish to talk with any of us regarding your child please call the studio or email us at email@example.com. We will be happy to talk with you. Our classes run back-to-back; therefore, teachers are not available for discussion during class or between classes.
Northeastern Ballet Theatre does not follow local school department weather cancellations. Should a class be moved to Zoom rather than in-person, we will notify families through email and/or text message. We do not call people individually unless the change is close to class time and for an unexpected reason. You may sign up to receive text messages about canceled classes by visiting your online account.
