Placement is determined by the instructors and is based on ability and certain age restrictions. Due to recital requirements, all class
placements must be finalized by March 1st 2024.
Dancers should arrive in full dance attire 10 minutes prior to their scheduled class time. Missing “warm-ups” due to tardiness may cause
injury and is disruptive to the class.
Attendance & Make-up Classes:
Attending class on a regular basis ensures progress for all students. We would appreciate an email if you or your children are unable to
attend class. Students can make-up classes within the session of the missed class. Missed classes must be made up by the student that
misses the class and cannot be used by friends, family, etc. The make-up class should be the same dance genre and the same level of
class that is missed, (unless the class is not offered at another time). For instance, if a ballet class is missed, students must make-up in a
ballet class. If class is not made-up within the session, the make-up class opportunity does not roll over into the next week unless the
missed class falls within the last week of the session and there is no available class to make up within that last week.
Holding a student’s spot in a class for 4-weeks of absences or more.
A Tuition payment must be paid in full for the next attending session prior to the student’s extended absence.
If Premiere Dance Center cancels class, the student is encouraged to make up the canceled class in another similar level class of their choosing.
Closures due to snow or weather will correspond with Bellevue School District closures, so please check radio/TV for school closures.
All dancers must have their hair pulled back, away from the face and off the neck. Ballet students must have hair in a ballerina bun. A
bun or ponytail is okay for all other disciplines.
