We retain the right to change the advertised program of classes in the event of illness or other circumstances beyond our control such as bad weather.
2) Cancellation of Monthly Notice Policy
Notice of four weeks must be given in writing if a child wishes to cease attending lessons. Fees will still be due even if the student is unable to attend class until the completion of the notice period. Fees will not be refunded if a student decides to leave during the course. Should a student leave for medical purposes (a Doctor’s letter will be required in these circumstances) membership may be paused.
3) Attendance Policy
It is a fundamental necessity for the teacher/choreographer to have the time to work with the students; therefore all pupils are expected to meet a 80% minimum attendance. Parents are asked to contact us when their child is absent giving an indication of the reason.
Choreography for Performances: When working towards group choreography for competitions or performances, should attendance drop bellow 80% we reserve the right to alter students’ positions and if deemed necessary, he/she will be removed from a section or the whole piece.
4) Lateness Policy
Students are expected to arrive on time. Dance is a physical activity that requires the body to be warmed up in order to execute movement safely. Late students miss the proper warm-up and therefore may sustain an injury. If students are going to arrive more than 15 minutes late please alert the instructor so they can prepare.
5) Dress Code & Lost Property Policy
Students must present themselves in a tidy manner at all times.
Lessons: Correct uniforms must always be worn. Students that are not dressed appropriately will not be allowed to take a class. If you have any questions regarding the dress code for a particular lesson, please ask the teacher or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Choreography: Students must wear all black for group choreography days, and a leotard/tight fitted clothing for all choreography sessions besides Hip Hop.
Lucky Star Dance Company, LLC does not accept responsibility for items lost or stolen, although anything we do find will be placed in lost property.
6) Behavior Policy
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 tolerated. Unacceptable behavior by pupils may result in exclusion from current and/or further activities. Parents or family members may be banned from premises, events and/or performances.
7) Anti-Bullying Policy
Lucky Star recognizes that every child has the right to enjoy a life free from bullying; therefore we will always take all allegations of bullying seriously and are committed to deal with it effectively when it does happen. We will always endeavor to work with students and parents to prevent it from happening.

Lucky Star takes seriously their responsibility to ensure the health and safety of all participants, teachers, and volunteers; and takes appropriate measures to make sure the environment is safe for all.

Dance is as an active engagement as any sport, and whilst every effort is made to avoid them, injuries can happen. The school accepts no responsibility for injuries sustained via any means other than a teacher’s negligence.

9) Appropriate Physical Contact Policy
Teaching dance is a physical activity and appropriate physical contact between students and teachers in class in essential to training. Lucky Star recognizes that such physical contact is a potentially complex area, and the company also fully recognizes its responsibilities for safeguarding students and teachers and for protecting their welfare.
The following principles and procedures are in place to fulfill the company’s obligations:
a. Contact by the teacher is made with a particular awareness of the needs of each individual to assist the dancer in correcting placement.
b. All teachers will treat any physical contact with due sensitivity and care, and with due regard for the wishes of the student.
c. Contact will not involve force or the use of any instrument.
d. Teachers will be mindful of location and avoid situations where they are isolated from the student; a one to one class should be held in studios and dance areas with windows or with the parent/carer present.
e. Students and parents are encouraged to discuss any worries with any member of staff or an independent listener.
