THRIVE DANCE STUDIO INC. WAIVER + STUDIO POLICY AGREEMENT

This waiver is in correlation with Thrive Dance Studio’s “Information Package”.
I have read and understand the information package.

COMMUNICATION
(Refer to page 5 of Information Package for more info)

I understand that the primary means of communication at Thrive is via email and have provided Thrive Dance Studio with my email address. Should I need to correspond with Thrive for any reason, I acknowledge that I can contact them by phone (778-366-0796), email (thrivedancestudio@gmail.com), or visit the studio during regular office hours.


ATTENDANCE + TARDINESS
(Refer to page 5 of Information Package for more info)

Attendance is taken at each class. Good attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back the entire class. Please make every effort to have your child attend and be on time to every class. Should your child be absent for any reason, we ask that you email thrivedancestudio@gmail.com informing the secretarial staff before their class.
(Refer to page 5 of Information Package for more info)

FEES + POLICIES FOR SERVICES RENDERED
(Refer to page 6 of Information Package for more info)

I understand that upon registering for Thrive I am required to pay a non-refundable registration fee of $37.50.
All tuition payments will be regularly processed on the 1st unless the 1st lands on a Saturday, Sunday, or Holiday. Monthly tuition rates remain the same, whether it is a Long (5 class) or short (3 class) month including June recital month. There will be no monthly statements sent out unless you have a balance on account. There is no discount for classes missed or absences.
I agree to pay Thrive Dance Studio for services rendered (e.g. the teaching of dance lessons) according to the charges outlined in the Thrive tuition rates document and this form.
I understand that if an NSF or decline occurs on a monthly cheque or credit card, that I will be advised of my outstanding balance plus charged a $30.00 NSF fee. This will be due immediately with my unprocessed tuition fees.
To drop a class after initial registration, I will notify the office staff via email. I understand that this will be considered my 30 days notice. Payments are processed on the 1st of each month so notice received anytime after that date will be applied to the following month.

I hereby agree and give permission to Thrive Dance Studio to automatically charge my credit card or deposit post dated cheque for monthly fees owed on the pre-assigned dates that are outlined. I have read and understand the studio’s policy regarding NSF and declined payments and agree to abide by them. In the event of a Decline chargeback, I hereby authorize the studio to electronically reprocess/charge my payment for the amount owing plus the $30.00 Decline fee. In the event of a NSF chargeback, I hereby authorize the studio to charge my account for the owing amount plus a $30.00 NSF and agree to make a cash payment immediately to bring my account up to date. I agree to abide by the 30 days notice policy and understand that it is my responsibility to notify the office of any change in payment or withdrawal by email.



SOCIETY MEMBERSHIP + FEES
(Refer to page 7 of Information Package for more info)

Thrive Dance Society is a non-profit organization that works alongside Thrive Dance Studio Inc. I understand that to participate in classes at Thrive Dance Studio Inc. I must become a Thrive Society member. I acknowledge that this Membership Fee (of $0.75) is taken from my paid registration fee.
A Media Fee of $40.00 is required upon registration. This is a non-refundable fee if a student withdraws from classes after a full month of participation.
The society subsidizes Costume Fees to $10.00 per non-competitive class per student. Ballet students participate in two production shows and therefore will pay $20 fee for their two costumes.
Thrive Dance Society requires a commitment of 4 hours of volunteer work, or a payment of $200 annual fee in lieu of volunteer hours. Should your hours not be completed prior to the last performance or class date, you will be notified by email to notify you that your cheque will be deposited/credit card charged by August 1st.
I hereby agree and give permission to Thrive Dance Society to charge my credit card or deposit post dated cheques for the society fees outlined and explained at the time of registration. Including a $10.00 costume fee for every class the Participant is registered in performing in a recital (or $20 if ballet student), and a $40.00 media fee (per family) put towards the costs of producing professional footage of all Thrive Dance performances. I hereby agree to complete the required 4 hours of volunteer work for Thrive Dance Society by the end of the year. I have read and understand the studio’s policy regarding society fees and volunteer hours and agree to abide by them. In the event I do not complete the volunteer hours, I hereby give permission to Thrive Dance Society to charge my credit card or deposit the post dated cheque of $200.00 in lieu of incomplete volunteer hours.

I understand that while I am a member in good standing, (defined as no outstanding debts and not in breach of any conditions outlined herein) I am a full voting member of the Thrive Dance Society, and as such will endeavour to attend Annual General Meetings and other meetings convened as necessary throughout the year.


UNIFORM + LOGOWEAR

Specific Thrive logo wear and/uniforms are required for all Thrive Dance Inc. classes. This includes ballet attire in all ballet classes as well as appropriate footwear for each different style of dance.
